Nope, the only big block with a single fuel line is the L78.  The other two (L34, L35) have two fuel lines.
782  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Differences in CE and DZ block on: March 05, 2007, 08:32:55 PM
Look at the casting numbers on the back of the block.  They are probably different, a 68 block will be 3914678, while 69 blocks were either 3932386, 3932388, 3956618 or 3970010, depending on when it was cast during the model year.  Oh and 68 Z28's didn't have DZ coded blocks, they had MO coded blocks.

Thats a 69.  The front baffles weren't used on 68's until sometime around April of 68. If you really want an exercise in futility try finding a convertible baffle.  I've only got one for my car and have been looking for the second one for about 6 years now.  I guess I should just take the one I have down to a sheetmetal shop and see if they can make me a mirror image of the one I have.

The chambered exhaust was only available on Z28's and big blocks.

Probably not, since the crossram didn't come from the factory, and the dealers would not have been required to install such a label if they did the installation.
786  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Speaker / rear defogger on: February 25, 2007, 03:36:13 PM
Speakers go between the air vent and the front edge of the door opening.  There is a rectangular opening in the substructure of the car that the speaker magnets fit into.  You have to get the speakers installed in exactly the right location or they won't fit.  If you remove the kick panel you can measure from the edge of the door opening and up from the floor to the center of the rectangular opening to establish a centerline for the speakers.  From there you can make a template from the speaker cover to locate it correctly.

You will have to use an OEM style speaker in this location as there isn't much room for a large magnet in that rectangular opening behind the kickpanel. 
787  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Exhaust resonator...what does it do? on: February 25, 2007, 08:34:12 AM
The resonators are two small mufflers about 16 to 18" long that go in each exhaust pipe before the crossover muffler.  I beleive they were used in late (around May of 9) 69 Camaros with dual exhaust.
788  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Car Insurance on: February 24, 2007, 07:54:37 AM
You establish the value in an agreed value policy and the rates you pay are based on that value.  Some companies require an appraisal to support the value that you want, others don't.  Most will require a series of photos showing the car exterior and interior.  I have Hagerty and I picked a value, and they aggreed with that value without an appraisal, so my value must have fallen within an acceptable range for what my car is.  I need to boost the value this spring when the car hits the road again.
789  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Car Insurance on: February 23, 2007, 05:51:18 PM
You have a stated value policy unless your policy says this: (and only this)

"In the event of loss to a "your covered auto" described in the Schedule or in the Declarations for which a specific premium charge indicates that Antique Auto Agreed Value Coverage is afforded:


1. We will, subject to the applicable limit of liability shown in the Schedule or in the Declarations for this coverage:

a. Repair or replace the damaged or stolen property with like kind and quality if the amount necessary to repair or replace such property is equal to or less than the limit of liability shown in the Schedule or in the Declarations; or

b. Pay the amount shown in the Schedule or in the Declarations."

If there are any statements about depreciation, or "value at the time of the accident", the insurance company will find some comparible cars in your area (usually the ones with no drive train and missing the floorboards sitting in a marsh) and use that to establish a lowball value, and then they will depreciate it further for excessive mileage or some other factorsthey dream up you will be lucky to get a couple of thousand dollars out of the insurance company.  Check your policies and read them carefully.

You can disregard whatevers on that window sticker as far as original documentation, its a repro.
791  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 350 SS EXHAUST BRACKET on: November 05, 2006, 04:19:07 PM
If it was an L48 (350/300HP) then it was an SS and would have had dual exhaust.  If it was an L65 (350/250HP) then it was not an SS and would not automatically have received dual exhaust, but it was available as an extra cost option.

How many fuel lines are under your car?
792  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z/28 spring decals on: October 28, 2006, 09:06:47 AM
6314 is a Moog spring part number for a 1644lb load spring, with a 288 lb spring rate and a free spring height of 16.446"  The normal Z28 spring was the equivalent of a moog 6308 with a 1607 lb load, 379 lb spring rate, and a free height of 14.981".  Don't think the production springs had any markings on them other than the paper tag that was wrapped around one of the coils.
793  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: X Codes on: October 28, 2006, 06:51:04 AM
If the car was made after 1/1/69 and has 2 fuel lines, its an SS.  The only small block that used two fuel lines after that date was the L48.  Both the L34 and L35 big blocks also used two fuel lines, all others had a single 3/8" fuel line.

SS's also required front discs, multileaf rear springs and for the most part a 12 bolt axle, although an L48 with a powerglide transmission would come with a 10 bolt axle.

I wouldn't necessarily make that statement, I know of one other 67 L48 within 300VIN numbers of this one, with a January 25th MU coded engine.  Besides if you were going to fake an engine for an April built car, wouldn't you expect the engine date to be late March, or early April?
