1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Seat belt Date on: Today at 03:39:20 PM
I thought that the 68 seat belt release button went to the GM logo instead of the coach? Though not shown it this pic. That is the case.
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 67 Seat belt Date on: Today at 01:19:18 PM
What is the deal with this date tag? It is from a 67 belt set and it has 1968 printed on it with a 67 date code.

Very early 70 Nova still used linkage style.
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Any other options for crankcase ventilation? on: March 28, 2015, 11:35:00 AM
I will add that venting from the highest point (the rocker covers ) is best. You wont get moisture collecting at this high point and creating sludge.
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Any other options for crankcase ventilation? on: March 28, 2015, 11:31:46 AM
No other way. If you want to use the original rocker covers you will need to install the can and vent from rear of block.

Pull the vent from the Oil fill tube fitting to a PCV valve then to a vacuum source at the base of the carb. Doesn't matter where you pull the vent from as long as the crankcase is vented either positively or to atmosphere.

That is excellent information William.  That explains perfectly why mine would be optioned the way it is.  I always thought it was odd to have an RS with deluxe houndstooth, and then have no console, no tach, no gauges.  I had no idea the tach and gauges weren't available until late (May 69) in the production run.  You'd sure never guess that looking at all the 69Z's today, lol.

So if I'm understanding your comment correctly, any 69Z built before May 69 couldn't possibly have a console/gauges and/or tach??  I think I understand the U16 tach only option as being implimented in May 69, before that it was only paired up with the console gauge option?

I bet that just confused everyone, I confused myself  Grin

Edit: re-reading and thinking, I think I understand your post as console/gauges being mandated in May 69 as meaning "standard equipment" and before that it was optional equipment.  The U16 tach only option became available in May at that time.  So before all this, a console/gauge package which included a tach was available as an option?   Correct me if I'm wrong on this...

Tach was included May on, optional prior. Console and gauges were always an option.

I'm not a big fan of the 302 either. When I assemble my DZ block it will have a 3.48 stroke steel crank in it.

The nut is missing but the tag reads the same as the one above.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Antenna Mast on: March 24, 2015, 08:42:56 AM
Anyone have an idea as to the application of this antenna? I purchased it to plug into my 67 but base is incorrect.

The finned 327 Hi-po Dampener has the 3 long spokes also. What you have is most likely 67/68 302 if the timing mark is inline.

Spring under rubber like the pic. above. Rubber facing out.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z Harmonic Balancer or not ? on: March 23, 2015, 12:05:45 PM
I believe the 69 Z28s and the high performance 350s in the early 70s used similar balancers.  Often difficult to tell the difference between the two.

They were not similar, The 69 Z was a one year only with the 3 spokes extending to the rubber 7708 number. The 70 SHP did not. like pic. above.

Ive seen somewhere that the rivits can be had and installed easily on the later style plates.

Well its either Penn or the Valvoline VR1. The VR1 is easier to get. I will have to travel some distance for the Penn oil. According to the link that X66 714 provided the VR1 doesn't have a short term use only classification if the silver bottle type is used.
