Thanks fellas, for the T3 lamp education ....   Smiley
as it turns out both the lamps I bought in Charlotte, and one of the ones on my car are correct for '69.. but no inked stamps on the back.. (I cleaned 'em too good)..

OK.   that's what I confused with a 'date code'..  the code in the glass.    The two I bought in Charlotte, and the one I already had on my car had differing 'glass codes'..  and no stamped codes on back (already cleaned off I suppose)..

I
I'm the one who entered 'Other'. My system was made in the late 80's and is SS and uses a cross flow muffler with stock sizes and exits.
I don't know vendor though.   Sad  The sound is nice actually with a comfortable deep tone to it and not loud.

Mike


I also entered 'other' since there was not an entry option for 'stock gm'...  small block 302 here...

I hope, before you reinstall them, you're going to clean off that green gunk, Austin..  Smiley
Was there also a date code made into the glass (on the front at the top of the bulb?..
1341  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 24, 2013, 01:30:36 PM
The 'date codes' I was previously referring to as made into the glass, on the front face of the lens at the top...  I'll take a photo next time I have my camera in the garage...  Maybe the ones I purchased on the Charlotte show are 'newer' and follow a different format??

VIN difference:    672580 - 672384 = 196 cars difference on the line...

Based on the 21 work days in August '69, and the number of cars produced during Aug, the avg daily rate was 435/day.. assuming a single 8 hr shift that month, 196/435 ~ 3.6 hrs difference on the line...

Phillip,

Do you have the weights of the 230/250 ci 6 cyl engine?   I've been under the impression the weight was very similar to a small block V8 of the same era..?
1344  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Z/28 firewall crayon marks, question? on: September 23, 2013, 10:17:04 PM
Austin,

The cars/bodies were 'notated' by 'sequence number' on the production line.   This sequence number which might have gone from 001 thru 999 for example, went in sequence, then began again.  The sequence string was long enough that two cars with the same number would never be on the line at the same time.  The sequence number only had relevance for that car and for that day that it was in production.   That number is irrespective of VIN number or body number or any other number. 

(I think I've seen similar sequence numbers written in large numerals in magic marker on the build sheets in the Corvette assembly plant...)

Thanks Phillip!  Smiley  I'll save that data as well..
(My eyes need LOTS of light also now.. so I try to minimize my night time driving)..

I paid $30 for a pair, which included the SS retention rings, and rusty buckets..   I also needed one retention ring.. Smiley

1346  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 23, 2013, 08:02:56 PM
I bought a couple of T3 headlamp assemblies (to get the bulbs) this weekend, supposedly from a '69 Chevrolet.   When I got home and cleaned them up and inspected them, I note that they have a 'code' on the top front which appears to be a 'date code'.   I don't recall ever reading anything about the date codes, as there is a great deal of 'mis information' in general re the various T3 lamps.   Can someone enlighten me on this subject?   Are lamp bulb date codes 'judged' by the ACA?
1347  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: 1967 Camaro v6 engine on: September 23, 2013, 07:58:40 PM
Probably a lot (to most?) of the 6 cyl Camaros have been converted to V8's over the intervening 45 or so years...  by itself, it's nothing to worry about (although NOT original), but I'd also want to know what else he changed to the V8 item (springs?, trans?, rear end?, etc).   The trim tag shows you how it was built originally, but after 45 years one has to play detective to see what has been changed, and how well it was done...
1348  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original 1969 standard grille on: September 23, 2013, 07:56:00 PM
Hey Lloyd, your bracket on the grill emblem looks to be installed wrong. Shouldn't it be flipped around? Was it this way on the RS grills?
I think Lloyd's emblem retainer is flipped and rotated, as it should be 'square' with the grill, and with the 'lips' registered around the grill bars.
