If those are PN's from the 69-72 timeframe, then perhaps they are taken from the 'green sheets', or ..
Special Chevrolet Equipment, High Performance and Modification document??   but the form is a little different in that document, as it has sketches as well..

you may be installing the screws holding the spring loaded contact too far, making the contact all the time, rather than just when the horn button/ring is pushed??

Re:  the lower control bolt orientation:
Chick wrote:  "...... Just curious, any of you have the a-arm bolt orientation (bolt head out) as the one picture shows? The AIM is that way but believe every car I've ever looked at had the thread side out except for one 69 Firebird I noted a few years ago."

Well, when I put mine back together after replacing bushings, etc.. I didn't recall how those bolts were oriented, so I went to the AIM... Smiley
so now mine are thread and nuts out.. forward... per the AIM.

I'll have to go back and find photos hopefully of that area prior to removal to see how they were originally...?

OK..  I dug thru my photos searching for a 'before' photo, and I finally found one.. which show the original orientation of the lower control arm bolts on my car as being 'forward' which matches the AIM, and is how I re-installed them after the cleaning and rebuilding...

Why are they displaying them until August? Trying to bring in the folks who love to see wrecks at races?

in late August (leading up to Labor Day weekend event) will occur the 20th anniversary of the NCM grand opening, and the National Caravan to it.  I think they will have the cars on display thru that event for all the Corvette enthusiasts visiting and attending that weekend.  I will be driving one of my Corvettes in the Caravan also, as I also drove in the two prior Caravans to the NCM.. The Caravans were 'nationwide' events, with caravans beginning as long as a week in advance in the far reached of the country, then adding cars as they got closer to the NCM..   The First One (for the NCM grand opening) was amazing, as the Governor of Kentucky at the time CLOSED interstate 65 thru Kentucky for the Caravan.. we were the only cars on the Interstate that day... Smiley     It was neat, but there were so many PO'ed truckers and other travelers that were surprised by this, I don't think it will ever happen again.. Smiley

Jano,

I have an extra '68 carb (body at least, maybe the metering plates also)..   822 date...  If you can use it, all you have to do is trade me something neat for my '69.. Smiley

Are they the same as the corvette rotors of those years?   At least I believe the OTC disk brake (service duty) rear ends ones were....
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Picture of 69 z top of engine wanted on: April 09, 2014, 01:26:24 PM
I've seen one on an 06A car.

My 06A has the fuel line clip, build date is June 18? and the shipping date is June 22 or 23?, if I remember correctly. Canadian Docs Z28. It says "Stamp Rite" on it, its black, not phospahate, never been off the fuel line.
No PCV clip, in fact NEVER seen one on a Z, just L78 as posted.

My 09C Z28-RS had one on it (see photo) when I purchased it in 1976.. First one I'd ever seen, and ONLY one I'd ever seen for many years after I'd purchased the car... (now they reproduce them)...  that makes me think they were only used on very late '69 cars, and perhaps only sporadically??

So now that makes 40,001 69 Z28,s out there today?

Well, Unless one believes the protecto-plate is fake, OR that this is one of those situations where someone has *Made* a car to match existing documents, then it is a factory Z28...  per the PTP...  (the PTP looked good to me).. but it wouldn't be the first time someone has made a car to match good documents... (Ref the Rallye Green Z28 that sold a few years ago at BJ for $125K or so..)...

Car has been sold twice at Barratt Jackson here:
http://www.barrett-jackson.com/application/onlinesubmission/lotdetails.aspx?ln=938&aid=221
and here:
http://www.barrett-jackson.com/application/onlinesubmission/lotdetails.aspx?ln=711&aid=443

Both times its was described as having a “correct” block. Now according to the ebay ad its numbers matching. Buyer beware.

A 'Barrett-Jackson' or 'BJ' car, SCARES me more than it impresses me..  Smiley
(knowing what all has occurred at those auctions in the past)...
