Would this be the adapter of which you speak? There is no part# embossing.

 I only have one code for Argent in my files. Secretary copied all GM codes years ago. Info.  was copied from pages such as the link below.
 The code # would remain the same. Argent being Argent. No flattening agent equals more gloss. Your shop can pull this up on their computer mixing system database. We had microfiche Gary... old school.

No, it's not origionally MM. I built what I wanted. I've had this since '83. Took years to decide on a color. Complimented on color often. "Different" they say.  Doing an origional '68 Code 00 now. Not 50K cars but they work for me. And I drive them...often.
I don't post pics often so this may not show the size I want. We'll see.

Part I have was manufactured by Fisher Corp.,  PAT. #3287094 ( Patent not Part) Would it's use be incorrect without RPO to substantiate?

   It's easier to do than to explain in two sentences. If you are frustrated before you have begun as stated then you may have set yourself up for more of the same. It's really not difficult. It requires patience. I'm not sure why you cannot take advantage of your rotisserie but it doesn't matter. I'll touch on a few points, the headliner will "teach" you the rest. Get many vice grip clamps. Put screws in to locate any hardware mounting locations after install. Lay it out prior to installation to acclimate and flatten. Apply adhesive to both car and liner and let sit(obvious?). Pull the front and back taught at middle. Work in increments outward. Applying cement as you go at times. You'll have to slice the bow sleeves back. You simply have to work the perimeter slowly re-adjusting as you go. The part that requires patience and more working is the tack strip where the sail panel is. Sometimes pulling it taught there and using widemouth clamps helps. Install trim moldings an voila! Believe it or not any small wrinkles will dissipate. Contact cement is cooperative. You can re-adjust required areas. The moldings can be pulled off in places and the liner pulled tighter as needed. Then just push them back on. 
   You will get a multitude of on-line techniques. Patience and self observation are the key elements.

    This is to extend a large measure of gratitude to John Z. I have read his data and papers written on the subject of timing and vacuum advance. With his consultation, his VA Can recommendations and tuning parameters, I have greatly improve performance.
    I post this on open forum not for the regulars who are aware of John's knowledge, but for those who are new and to value his advice. Acquisition of his knowledge in past posts and in the future is an understated asset.
    Thanks again John. Today's ride with the update was exhilarating.

 Connection OD is 11/16. It's in Rick's cat. page 254.

What was the specific year and engine usage for that part? It's clearly a flame arrestor, and that function was served on most Corvettes by a fine mesh screen press-fitted on the end of the elbow inside the air cleaner.

I don't know. I found it with my NOS parts and referenced it in a catalogue which stated it's discontinuation. It is obviously not applicable to my 327 and thought it belonged with a different hose configuration. Or even if it pertained to Camaros.

Is this breather hose filter discontinued or am I mistaken? Thank you.

Have unknown NOS parts in my stock. I know what they are NOT for. Assistence required by book owner.

i cannot say how well the Nova hoods fit. As stated, I want to know how well the new  Camaro repos fit as well. I can tell you this. We ended up throwing the Nova repo fenders out that came w/ the car. I repaired the GM ones with lower parts cut from those worthless pieces of scrap. It would appear that the latest, higher quality Camaro repos are better. I'm not yet updated on Nova parts. Helping a friend restore one on spec. NC? I might have one but shipping will smoke your wallet.

Kurt, I was able to delete it. I just wanted to solidify your electrolysis procedure and suggest it's value in restos as a substitution for cabinet blasting. I found it quite an asset in it's money and time saving over the years.

I don't want to do this again. When I quoted someone my comment ended up INSIDE the purple/lilac quote box. Now I cannot edit it.
