Not sure this is accurate, but per an internet search, FCO in international trading is:

Full Corporate Offer .

This is the final, detailed, specific offer that the seller is sending to the buyer.   Makes sense?

Edgemontvillage was referring to the engine orange on the head surface between the valve cover and intake manifold... ie. the upper part of the machined surface for intake gasket...  which normally would not get painted on such an engine (with aluminum manifold and aluminum valve covers)..

I was also in MD at the Camaro Nats, and greatly enjoyed it, meeting great people and seeing some fantastic cars.   What year? and which one was yours??

Are you referring to the chambered cross mufflers?   Allens does make the chambered system as well as regular systems for all kinds of collector cars...

and also from Team Chevelle forum, Rustynutznrods writes:....

"Eastwood makes a Hotcoat Argent Silver base (part # 10102). The issue with silver powder coating is that they all require a clear topcoat. It's not a bad solution if you're not concerned with originality. But it's obvious to the experienced eye that the finish is not original.

We've done a lot of wheels in satin black powder coat with the correct Argent Silver sprayed on the wheel face. The paint codes are DuPont 9692L or Ditzler DQE-8568. "

From a search:
(Chevelles forum)
"The 1969 reference page here:    http://www.chevellestuff.com/1969/paint.htm
says this:
The lower body panel on Malibus for Argent Silver is DuPont mixing formula 927-95905 or 41253, Ditzler (PPG) color number is DE-8568."

and ...
"Argent Silver is PPG #8568

That was back in the 'Quality Circle' days... Smiley
1283  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z 302 pulley finishes on: June 28, 2013, 09:41:35 AM
you're right John.. Smiley
- experienced engineers generally begin with past designs, look at what's been done before, and verify that it's good w/o problems and doesn't need changes
- 'younger', less experienced engineers sometimes like to ignore past designs and history, and do everything 'anew'... 
Smiley

That said, do you have similar GM requirements spec information for '69 pulleys, in particular the smog pulley?
1284  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: heater control restoration? on: June 27, 2013, 05:23:35 PM
thanks.. Smiley
I'd been very hesitant to try disassembling for fear or ruining it..   
so now, armed with your 'it can be done'..  I will go ahead and do it!  Smiley
1285  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z 302 pulley finishes on: June 27, 2013, 03:19:55 PM
Thanks John,

It's probably safe to assume that this spec didn't change much between '67 and '69...?   Smiley
1286  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / heater control restoration? on: June 27, 2013, 09:27:54 AM
Is it possible to disassemble an original heater control such as the one *(already disassembled)* in this ebay ad
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=400518010421&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123

... and get it back together correctly with original components?    This is not mine, but my original one has some of the 'shrinkage' in the lettered black backing.   What's necessary or available to replace that black ?paper? part?   Do the control knobs just 'pull off'? and will they push back on and stay?  I'm very hesitant to disassemble my good original part unless I now it can be reassembled properly.

"How about the hood insulation pad retainers? Aren't those wrong? Has the green tip dipstick been confirmed to be ok?"

Those appear to be the Chevrolet OTC items that were available in the mid '70's.

1290  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Why Are Some Blocks Stamped and Some Not on: June 24, 2013, 11:10:35 AM
I suppose a better way to have said what I was trying to say, is that based on some of the characters of the stamped code being 'different' than those same characters in my own stamping, I was skeptical.   In particular, I didn't like the bottom of the 'Z'.   There was also a difference in the D and the 2 in those stamps.   that said, my opinion does NOT mean they are absolutely wrong, it just means I'd have to see a lot more evidence for those blocks and the cars they were in to be 'sure' that they were original stamps.   Maybe Flint engine had a variety of stamps/fonts that I'm unfamiliar with??   Maybe some others who have photographs of many 'known' good stamps can shed better light on those?   What it boils down to is that anything that 'appears' out of the norm of our experiences are met with initial skepticism.    I experienced a few examples of that this weekend at the Nationals, where I was initially skeptical, but on more complete examination of all the associated date, I changed my mind..  Smiley
