Byron,

I think we're saying the same thing, that the 'unstamped' differential was likely an over the counter replacement axle housing...  at least that was what I was trying to suggest, and I *think* you were saying...  Smiley

That would be a good 'ford' to follow up on with the seller...  find out what documentation he has, get copies of it, etc...?

There was probably a higher than normal need for replacement axles around this time based on the track and street racing that was taking place. COPOs, L78s, etc.  And the Novas used the same axle, so that added to the need as well. 

A couple of possible answers to the question that Bullitt raised about 'no stamping' on the axle...  besides oversight.. is this:
1) Did replacement differentials (bought OTC) have the same date stampings?  (I'm guessing they probably did if they were complete rears)..
2) BUT... a replacement housing (no gears/axles/etc) would probably NOT be stamped, since it was sold without gears, etc.  I suspect this was what happened to the car that Bullitt questioned...

Note:  With the '70 models changing axle length, isn't it 'likely' that GM parts depots would stock spares for the '67/8/9 differentials??   and the cast dates on those 'spare parts' would more than likely occur near the end of the production year.. and August '69 would qualify for such a period?

All the scare mongers talking 'global warming', seem to be ignoring the fact that we have entered probably a 30 yr period of colder and colder temps... (due to lower sun energy)... the last two years winters here have been the coldest/longest that we've had in Alabama for probably 40 yrs...

Even in Alabama we get a little snow every few years...   and last night we got this years!  Smiley   You northern folks forgive me, but for down here, this is unusual!!  Smiley

No problem Bryon; including the pix again was unintentional... Smiley

It was done at fisher for Norwood cars.
This was extensively discussed a few months ago in reference to a Daytona Yellow Z28.

The last picture here shows the gray primer with the body color running over the top of the firewall.

James,  can you be more specific about 'what' was painted 'where' (fisher or assembly plant) and why you believe that (ie. evidences which support that?)...

Whitepost does booster rebuild and re-plate also. Mine came out perfect.

As I recall, Whitepost price for the booster was considerably higher than what BrakeBoosters charges...

Bryon,

After noticing that I failed to provide you my cast date, I checked some photos of my differential made when I was cleaning it, and found one with the cast date..  G 31 9

Please update the following entry in your data...

09C
CB U 0829G1
341, unknown casting date  G 31 9

or...maybe some strange desire to not put it back on the road just yet? Only takes one uninsured low life....Z is looking so pretty on the lift! Just as soon put the booster in the curio cabinet...but my wife probably would frown on it!

so.. maybe there's a lot of we 'preservationists' that are of like mind... Smiley
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Brake booster Remanufactured on: February 25, 2015, 12:23:46 AM
Moot point, by the time the car is finished the 'maintained' booster will have patinated to perfection Cheesy

you figured out my plan.....    Smiley
