1561  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Willow Run plant about to see the wrecking ball...? on: April 29, 2013, 12:11:57 PM
Interesting article from Hemmings re the Willow Run plant....  maybe we can all pool our money, but it, and convert it to a Camaro restoration facility?  Smiley

It was probably much more likely on a 'customer ordered' car.  I've special ordered a few new cars in the past ('70 RR, '73 RR, '77 MC, etc), and each time I did I always ordered *every* HD option they had, which usually included 'HD Cooling', HD battery, HD suspension, etc.    The key was that when it was specified on the order, the additional cost was minimal!   Typically dealer orders did not specify such things, because customers buying cars off the lot likely believed they were all the same.. and all it did was add to the dealer cost.  Example:   Hemi suspension on my '70 RR was an additional $25, and the 15x7 Rallye wheels were an additional $43.   I don't recall what the HD cooling and HD battery were, but it was typically 10-20 ea...

2 grooves on the input shaft.

Only stamps on the top was a VIN (8K196xxx) and a '4' in a box near the top rear of the front case.

thanks Ed!   I hadn't read that thread before, which addresses the odd suffixes on '67 and '68 Muncies.. Smiley
I'll pull the side cover and check the gears, and while reading thru this thread, I recalled having to change out the front case after buying the trans (which had two broken ears); and I think this stamping is on the front case.  I'll have to go check it out a bit more thoroughly.
1566  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What carb date for my 06A early June Z on: April 26, 2013, 10:05:24 AM
I have a '941' and an '822' body, both with 4519 and 5583 metering blocks and associated parts; I might be short a couple of bowls for one of them?  The 941 is 'sorta promised' to a camaro buddy.. although we haven't closed the deal after 2-3 yrs.. Smiley

I think anywhere from April to end of May would probably work. Ed says even the 934 would be ok. So 94X, 95X might be fine but I don't know if too close for V0604DZ. I'm hearing carbs can be dated past engine build date? Is that correct? I do have a 4519 block that came with the car when I bought it.

I have a couple of extra bodies and metering blocks I got with a car long ago... what date are you looking for?

Attached is a photo of a stamped code on a Muncie trans I have had since 1971.  It seems to be stamped P8D10c, although the 'c' is very small....  Does anyone recognize this stamping to identify it?  I've always believed this trans to be an M22; it has the 'whine', although it's been so long that the side cover has been off, I don't recall even looking at the angle on the gears.   Has anyone else seen a 'c' stamped like this?

1569  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Side Exhaust on my 69 on: April 24, 2013, 10:05:19 PM
you will likely lose power wtih the change you propose.   If you do it, I'd suggest selecting and installing the side pipes and shorty headers you want to use, and then get the car to a good exhaust man to bend up the pipe you need to connect it up..

Since that would be a custom scheme, you can paint it however you like, but remember that you are painting on plastic, so use materials compatible wtih it that will adhere..  your paint shop can tell you what you need to do.

Not a problem Zman.. Smiley

Attached is a photo of all the parts of the vacuum line, alongside a ruler.. Smiley

you can still buy new ones..  if the date isn't as important as the function and the look... made by Holley!

Eastwood sells a 'Sharkhide aluminum and metal protectant'..   $60/quart....  Is that what you used Scoop?  just rub it on?  or spray it? or ??
1574  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: DZ engine $12,800.00 on: April 24, 2013, 01:43:26 PM
June 5, 1969 engine assembly.   5 june was on a Thursday of the first week of June production.   I'd suspect the engine could have been used anytime from 2nd, 3rd, 4th weeks of June?
1575  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Battery Side post or top question on: April 24, 2013, 01:10:20 PM
Yes, positive on the right and negative on the left if your looking a the battery installed and facing the engine. The pic is correct. ....

Sorry~  Smiley   I started to say something about 'right' and 'left' being relative..  depending on where one was viewing from.. Smiley
