1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Canadian Emissions / Smog on: January 09, 2014, 02:25:09 PM
I was into the Musclecar scene here in Kingston, Ontario back in the late 60's and early 70's.  The two I bought new, 69 RS/SS L48 Auto and 70 Chevelle SS L34 Auto, obviously did not come with smog.  However, I knew guys that did order or buy 1969 cars with smog setups (Z/28's and L78 Chevelles) and they had the smog setups.  I also know our local Chevy dealer did numerous requests from purchasers to remove the setups upon delivery.

I am not aware of this dealer, or any other dealers, removing them on their own before a sale.  Obviously it could have happened outside my knowledge area.

Yes Steve, we are definitely referring to the same thing.  Glad to get that clarified.  Might be one of those Canadian/American term discrepancies  Grin

The outer manifold ports 1 & 7 drivers side and 2 & 8 on passenger side received washers (Cool. I have seen this on all the unrestored BB cars i've inspected.

That is very interesting Steve and I certainly do not question you due to your stature in the hobby.  There are so many threads over on Team Chevelle about this subject which reveals no washers being used and some of the respondees would be considered to have similar credentials as yourself.  Certainly intriguing considering all the engines essentially were built at the same plant.  Makes for some interesting discussion and debate if nothing else.

As mentioned in my previous post, I did mine based on my research. However, I am never "closed minded" about any of this stuff and am always interested in hearing about various alternatives that might have taken place.

Here are the part numbers I used from AMK.

Inner eight bolts (four inside runners)  - B-10147.  
Outer eight bolts (four outside runners) - B-10429.

At least that is what my research indicated.  Hope this helps.  Good luck.

I did the same research several years ago for my 69 Velle.  Turned out to be four bolts with shoulders and four bolts without shoulders.  No washers on any.  I ordered a set from AMK.  I'll go through my invoices to try and find the appropriate part numbers and post back in here.  At that time they did not have a "kit" per say, but you had to order two sets of four individually.  Maybe that has changed by now.

Thanks Brian, unfortunately there is nothing on the website you gave me for the L65 350.

I might be able to make adjustments to that Black "CO" decal shown on my website.  I would need the AC filter number (if not A348C), two digit code (DD?) and part number (6484674?).  Might be worth a shot.  Let me know.

Don't know if this will be much help Larry, but thought I would respond.

I put a Gardner's Chambered system on my 69 Chevelle back in 2010.  Mine isn't exactly a trailer queen as it does get about 200 miles a year put on it.  Have had no issues whatsoever to date.  I know their chambered system is not stainless, but it is hard to beat their correctness and quality (albeit they are expensive).

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Hi Mike.

There has been some debate, possibly even here on CRG, about the "colour" of the YF on the front tags and whether the print was Blue or Black. Jerry's book does in fact quote Blue.  I have filled customer orders for both colours.  Check your colour and if you want the other colour let me know and I'll send a set out.

Boston14 - If you could send me a higher resolution picture of that one I will keep it on file for possible future consideration.  Thanks.

Picture received Robert, thanks.

Email sent Kurt.  We can take a look at them.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Marty, my software buddy and I would like to look at another 69 Jacking Instructions Decal, but we need some quality pictures of originals and no other pictures have come forward as of yet.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / One 69 Jacking Decal now completed on: November 08, 2012, 02:15:40 PM
There were obviously several Jacking Instructions Decals used in 1969.  After several months we have now replicated the one dated 10-1-68 part number 3949506.  We have taken our normal care in an effort to make this as accurate as possible.  Thanks to CRG members for providing pictures of originals.

You can go to my website to see a comparison to the original and details for ordering if interested.

There were a lot of issues with the repro which I tried to address when making mine.  You have certainly highlighted most of them. One thing you didn't mention is the very bottom line "Printed......" on the left side and "Part No...." on the right.  The repros have them lined up vertically with the rest of the text, but mine and the original have them just outside the rest of the text.

You did good Danny   Wink

Thanks for the email and pics George.  We had another picture of a fantastic original sent to us last month and this decal is the one we are currently looking at.
