I have a 8B8 for my 04D car. Closest I've found in 26 years. I had a 8A5 and a 8A10 sold them a while ago. Let's see what other dates come up

So do we know what the difference between cranks is?

Per Jerry MacNeish's '69 Z/28 Fact Book...

"The 1969 302 crankshaft (part number 3941176) is identical to the one used in the 1968 model year (large journal).  This is a tuftrided forged-steel crankshaft."

Paul

Does that mean a 3279 crank is the same as a 1178?? Keyway and all? And Just different balancers and timing chain covers???

What balancer is on it?? 1968 or 1969? Balancer date?  How did they set timing?

I had the mattress at the time and didn't have a rotessire so it worked. It did take a long time to clean all that off. Do you think the undercoat was factory? I have nice clean floors now, no way would I want to cover them up again

67RS do you have any pics of the under side of your car before and after you removed the undercoating?

I have a 69 Camaro that was taken to Ziebart the day after it was sold, and given the works.... So it just has loads of that undercoating all over.
----------------------

Here are pictures.  The first one is the car on its side in my garage, yes on a mattress.  The second one is the undercoat partially removed, but you can see where it was.  The rest are after undercoat was removed.  I'm sure I have more pictures, but have just been too busy to look.  Let me know what you think.

I'm sure I do but they are in old time photo's and would have to dig them out. Life is so much easier now going digital isn't it

[.Undercoating was not applied to the belly at the factory, only partially to the front houses and fully on the rear houses.

I didn't know this. My car had not complete undercar, but most of it coated. ( I'm sure I took pictures I would have to look) It was the same under coat in the rear wheel wells as was the floor pans them selves. I don't remember it on the front fender wells, but I still have my originals buried in the basement

    I've had my car for 27 years now. It' still not done, I have 10 classic cars and try to play around with all of them, yes I guess I'm addicted. My 68 Z is going back to concourse correct, most likely will never be driven. So that kind of takes the fun out of it. I have more fun beating or driving the other cars and not worrying to much about blowing it up.
    I actually have both of Jerry's books signed by Jerry. I had a lot of my parts restored by Jerry years ago, carb, intake, exhaust manifolds, nuts, bolts, fan blade , fan clutch and a truck load more. I actually drove down there to meet him and drop off the parts. Super nice and knowledgeable guy! He has a nice shop!! I do have some pictures of my car before I started restoration, but they are on old paper pictures ( before digital )
    My car was factory undercoated, yes I did have the body on it's side and did get all the under coat off ( it took forever) But under the under coat was like new. Still has original floors and trunk
     I guess I will try to put a light coat of satin XO-Rust? Never heard of that one. As mentioned here. And see how that works
    Danny good to see your taking your car to MCACN, that time capsule should  be shown. I would love to go but that is a bit of a trip for me.
 Thanks for all the replies

Paint is what was there originally.  Clear is NOT!  Smiley

Paul

Good point!

Thanks, You both have the answers I was thinking of but???  What to do?
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Should I paint over lightly stamped numbers on my original BU rear end on: April 07, 2015, 02:24:08 PM
Moderators not sure where to put this? On my 68 Z my original 12 bolt rear BU stamp is very lightly stamped. I painted over it once and couldn't see the stampings. Would you still paint over it? Might not be able to see stamped numbers if I do it again. What would you do?

I have in my possession the L48 1967 350 engine block with partial vin 7n223477 and code V0330MU .  Located in Hartsdale NY. 10530.  If no luck on matching car I will be building it for my 03A 1967 RS/SS convertible.  I know it's a little too late for my car, I wish I could find my MU matching number engine.

Jerry has a 68 z/28 registry Check here  http://www.1968z28.com/ 

That is Larry Eakin's 68 Z/28 registry.  Wink

Paul

Your right, I was looking at pictures of Jerry's race car. He has the 67z/28 registry. I listed my 68 a long time ago.
