46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Where to find a black oil fill tube on: February 06, 2014, 10:16:32 PM
Anyone know what the correct application is for the oil fill tube pictured in reply #6.  It is on a '67/68 Z28 intake manifold and I know that is not correct.

Paul
I think that Intake could possibly be an L79 Intake, and for certain applications would have had that Oil Fill tube.

Oaklyss,,,,Reply#4;  I notice that nothing is filled in on the back of that sheet, ie;  mileage/inspection dates, and is not signed.  So my guess is that this warranty is null and void.
48  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Original 67 327 ? on: February 01, 2014, 03:46:27 AM
What the guys are trying to explain is; that the numbers as far as what the factory provided, do all match up.  But, those numbers are for the most part, only date codes.  But, that being said is all that the factory provided for that particular car.  I am pretty much in the same boat.  I am 99% positive my car has the "born with" engine, can I absolutely prove it?  NO!  But I purchased my car in '86 and it had not been restored, it was a little rough and had been just sitting in an Apple Orchard for 3 or 4 years.  Every # that I did  find upon restoring the car and rebuilding the Engine matched.  But again, we are only talking Date codes. (That is all that can be confirmed)  I tell anybody that is interested that it is the original engine.  Just my 2 c's.

I know pic. ain't the best, Body #  is 8031.  Build date is 11A first week.  Production Run # A638 in upper right corner would indicate was it was actually built on the 1 st.  I have read the Body # Tech. article, and have read the Monthly Production report.  And come to the conclusion that by the  end of October "roughly" 4700 were built in threads B,C &D (combined) in the same time frame that this car was built.  I'm not trying to make this car more "rare", just saying(as I did in first comment)  I have not seen a lot of cars with 4 digit Body #'s.  I'm sure there's some out there with 2 digits or 3, or did they start with 0 s in front?

 I know this is not really early build, and I know there are several "earlier", but I have not seen many 4 digit Build #'s.

Welcome back, hope you find a way to continue to feel better.  I dealt with Bronchitis for years, and I smoked, and worked in a Tire factory (very smoky environment).  I quit smoking 29 years ago and it improved tremendously, but the best thing I ever did was retire from that Tire factory.  8 years ago already, ( had 35 1/2 yrs.) how time flies.  I have to say though, that financially, it was a very good job.

What I have positive to say about BJ now is they are trying to clean up all of the fakes that come to auction.  They have hired automotive specialists to do inspections before the cars go across the block, and that's a good thing.

 Yah Jerry, I did pick up on the fact that they had specialists on hand.  And actually  saw you on TV.  Good job!

Thanks Roy for fighting the good fight and getting access to this information. I am surprised the NCRS would have to be convinced to do this though. What was their argument for not doing it?
Thanks Roy, for your time explaining.  And yes, for process involved I believe it is good investment, particularly for those who have nothing.  Cudos also to NCRS.

Pretty simple it took a major financial investment, there is always a possibility the pay out will not be sufficient to cover the investment, they are a Corvette club not a Camaro-Chevelle-Nova club, it also took a manpower restructure and addition so it required a business plan review, we have the GM approval and now we are waiting on the IT guru's to get us online.

another thing about the BJ coverage is they have it on too many different channels. a bunch of bunk if you ask me.
Yep! I miss the SPEED channel!

Thanks Ed!  I think it will be $50 well spent in my case.
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Time Machine on: January 15, 2014, 08:41:06 PM
Make mine Deepwater Blue with Black standard interior no console. SUN Tach. mounted to the column, aftermarket Oil, Temp., and Ammeter gauges under the Dash.  AM/FM Radio with rear speaker. SS396 with L78/89, M21/22, and 3:73 Posi rear.  Yah, that should do it.

Congrats Jon!  Doing a fine job with the car and history.
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear bumper bracket rivets on: January 04, 2014, 11:34:56 PM
I wanted to rivet on the rear bumper bracket as original and bought the reproduction rivets. They did not work for me because the top of the rivet you peen over was too small in diameter, would not fill the hole after peening. I made up my own, plated them dark phosphate, and installed them with an air hammer using a long punch. 
I used the rivets on my '67 bracket, and put a 1/4 in. flat washer on the small section of the rivet, then peened the end with air hammer and flat head attachment.  Worked great.

Article claims that is an Impala, and proves that this is Van Nuys plant, as Norwood only produced Camaros.
