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.

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?

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
1599  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What carb date for my 06A early June Z on: April 24, 2013, 08:23:05 PM
you can still buy new ones..  if the date isn't as important as the function and the look... made by Holley!
1600  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Z/28 Correct leaf springs, where to buy? on: April 24, 2013, 08:22:05 PM
Eastwood sells a 'Sharkhide aluminum and metal protectant'..   $60/quart....  Is that what you used Scoop?  just rub it on?  or spray it? or ??
1601  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?
1602  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
1603  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Battery Side post or top question on: April 24, 2013, 11:07:55 AM
1) I think your post is incorrect re the 'terminal polarities'..   See the pix of the Y77 from the CRG info site, attached below.  you can see the polarity is POS on the left, and NEG on the right!
2) Per the CRG information on batteries, the R79 was a HD option to the Y77 (also POS on the left and NEG on the right) per the photos.
3) The original batteries (Y77) used different sized screw threads for Pos and Neg, but I believe all currently available batteries use 3/8" screws.  Note:  The screws inside the cables are removable/replaceable if you happen to have the wrong size and own a NOS Y77, OR the 3/8" screw can be cut down and re-die to 5/16" if needed.   
4) Y77 batteries are no longer made or reproduced to my knowledge, but the R79 is available in reproduction ($340?). and you can buy a R79 battery 'topper' for $49 to capture 'the look'.
I believe the above is accurate as of 'today', and I'm sure someone will correct me if it isn't.. Smiley
1604  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Camaro Tilt column on: April 24, 2013, 10:36:12 AM
I just wanted to correct what I'd wrote below re the rev lockout lever; it turns out the tilt column I believed was for a Camaro, was actually for a Chevelle (it had a different shaped reverse lockout lever).   Camaro rev lo levers are the same for tilt and non tilt, per the experts who redo tilt columns (Gary's Classics in TX)..

Another difference I noted between the tilt column I have (purchased 35 yrs ago at a swap meet with a rosewood camaro wheel on it for $65!).. Smiley  and the std column is the shape of the reverse lockout lever...   std column is almost straight, whereas the tilt I have the lever has an angled bend to it...

The longer rubber hose is approx 6.5" in length; I believe it to be original, as it has a 'white line' on it, and is 'old rubber'.   The shorter rubber hose doesn't seem to be original; I think I recall the original was rotten and cracked at the end and I cut a 'too small diameter' hose and tried to squeeze on it..  it's actually smaller than the original rubber hose.
PS:  When I rebuilt my  302 in the '76 timeframe, I ran a Mallory rev pol (all mechanical, no vacuum) and a Judson Electronic Magneto (coil and CD ign), so that's when this line was removed and 'boxed', and hasn't been used since.   I'm continuing to look for the original coil and bracket in my shop.. Smiley
