seems pretty unusual to me to have *incorrect* side cover bolts...?  Are you sure they are incorrect?  Did you piece the trans together from parts?

I can't say about the factory installed muffler, but the one I bought over the counter at the local Chevy dealer in 1976 has a 'W' on the side.

Mine isn't bolted on, so it must be what you're calling the 'push in' type?

Original was 1.5...        1.6 rockers happened in the aftermarket much much later...

Lynn,

I mic'ed them at 0.595 .. that was after bead blasting, so  I figured they lost 0.005 to 'rust' over the years.  *L*
My car is an RS with ZL-2 hood vinyl top.. custom interior.. rem mirror...   trying to recall the heavy options...  RS was the biggie I think?   my total went about 65-90 lbs over if I recall...

Thanks..  I might do that..  OR modify the new pads to look like the old...

JohnZ provided a great tip on an easy to use 'image reducer' recently.   I've been using it and it's very easy.   Go to
http://download.cnet.com/Light-Image-Resizer/3000-12511_4-10529104.html
and download it..  It's free.. and works great on single images or as many as you select at one time.
1554  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: original transverse muffler date codes? on: March 08, 2013, 12:47:42 PM
pics are pretty easy to do here, but  you have to realize no single image can be larger than 150 kb, and the totaly cannot be more than like 400 kb?   4 image limit I think but they would have to avg less than100 kb to do 4... 
1555  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969, which pinion snubber on: March 08, 2013, 11:10:25 AM
You might want to include 'build date' in that data, Lynn..  in case it changed during the year?
1556  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust System Configuration on 69Z'z on: March 07, 2013, 01:30:29 PM
Apparently that was the configuration at the latter part of the '69 model year, and is the configuration my car is supposed to be in, although I've never had the resonators on it.   Do you have an audio file of how it sounds?  Smiley    do you run headers or stock manifolds?  I'd love to hear how it sounds, as I have recently acquired good original resonators for my car.   I'm concerned they will make it *too quiet*.. Smiley
1557  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: undercoating on: March 07, 2013, 11:39:01 AM
Welcome jano..  there are several of us in *similar boats* re our Z's...    mine has been in storage since 1980, now going thru it to make it roadworthy and preserve it.. Smiley   I'm looking forward to hearing and seeing more about yours!
1558  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 special customized promotional car on: March 05, 2013, 09:45:24 PM
Why do you think it's a promotional Chevy car, if everything on it is standard or optional equipment?
1559  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Azure 1969 Z on: March 05, 2013, 03:34:13 PM
Unless one pulls the cover (or chunk, in the case of the older rears), and counts teeth, or reads the numbers written on the gears, the way to know your ratio is to check rotations of the driveshaft and tires, and there's not much difference in 4.10 and 4.11..  Smiley          4.10 has 41 teeth on the ring gear and 10 on the pinion, whereas 4.11's have 37 teeth on the ring and 9 on the pinion.

The letter C in the axle code shows it is not a '69 Camaro rear, but a '70 Nova rear. The the '661 tranny case was not used until the '70 model year, or the late '69 production Camaros.  Should have a '660 Muncie case being an early built car.

FYI..  There's another thread concerning the use of the 'C' prefix (3 char codes) for late '69 Camaro rears as well...
