Thanks Gents,
so the ends were single crimped on the originals, what about the markings?

Are these brake hoses with red stenciling technically correct for a 69 Camaro?

If its a '010 block I would assume more than likely cast early in the run, April or May of '69.

Thanks!

thanks Kurt,

looking at '68 CBC's it appears the trim block actually refers to the color of the hard metal interior items, i.e., dash face, top of doors, outer edges of the rear package tray, etc...
however, I've come across a couple '69 CBC's one with an "M" for a 713 car and one with a "P" which I think may have been a Ivory/Black or Ivory Houndstooth car, in either case, both use black trim so I'd of thought they'd of used an "A".
unless the Houndstooth interiors used unique codes, so go figure...

thx,
Mel

Kurt,
....was the same code used for standard and custom interiors, i.e.," A" for 711 and 712, "V" for 721 and 722 etc...
I found a picture in my files of a CBC for a 59/59 car with trim code "W", is that midnight green and does it apply to 723 and 725?
thanks.

thanks Kurt, what is 723 dark green?

Jerry, what are the differences in the 3 pans?
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: CHASSIS BROADCAST COPY 147 "TRIM" BOX on: June 10, 2011, 01:03:59 PM
Ed, thanks for confirming that, any idea how medium or dark green was specified?
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / CHASSIS BROADCAST COPY 147 "TRIM" BOX on: June 09, 2011, 11:51:14 PM
Anybody know what a "V" in box 147 "Trim" of a '69 Chassis Broadcast Copy stand for?
Is that Green?
How is 723 midnight green specified?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: No partial VIN on blocks on: May 24, 2011, 06:13:24 PM
it would certainly have a value. not sure how much, but if it is THE original motor, it should go back in it. all the date codes would obviously be correct.

As I previously mentioned, the partial vin was stamped on the front pad and I did record the vin number.
However, after I informed the owner that the block had been decked and that the partial vin was no longer visible he didn't seem too interested in re-joining it with the car.
Unfortunately for him, I'm the only witness who can attest to the vin stamping.

I own block V0109DZ which came out of 19L518297.

Umm, do you realize this car is still out there?

Well I've owned the block close to 10 years, where's the car?

I was contacted by the owner of the above car a while back.
Unfortunately for him, the blocked was decked, the partial vin which was on the front pad is gone, the DZ stamp is still somewhat legible and distinguishable as "V0109DZ".
What value, if any, would having this block back in the original car be?

You should buy it, you'll probably never see another one and you'll kick yourself for not having bought it. Speaking from experience. :-)

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heads up on bellhousing alignment on: June 16, 2010, 03:30:40 PM
Sorry to hear about your vibration problem, I just had my tranny rebuilt with new WR M22 gears and before I install it with a new clutch, p.p. and t.o. bearing, I am going to check the bellhousing alignment.

I've just ordered the Browell tool and not sure which dowels to go with if I find the bellhousing alignment is out of tolerance. I was reading the Moroso and Lakewood websites and, contrary to what Jerry wrote in the CRG report about "Once you have correct alignment, apply either red or green Loctite to the dowel pins...",

Moroso doesn't mention using loctite but rather says to drill the block for set screws:
http://www.moroso.com/catalog/categorydisplay.asp?CatCode=23004&pt=37938

Lakewood's instructions don't mention Loctite either when using the EZ Adjustable dowel pins and say to "turn setscrew to tighten (which runs down the center of the pin) and positively locks the dowel in position".:
http://www.lakewoodindustries.com/pdf/74437G.pdf

With the engine in the car, seems the Lakewood EZ Adjustables are the simpler install and probably prudent to use Loctite.
thanks, Mel
