1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Do I have an Original L-48 Block? on: Today at 11:07:32 AM
The only "HY" code I can find at the moment is from a 1969 350ci full size car. I imagine that if it came from a "Police car" that the car would have been a full size one.  Maybe the original owner thought that it was in 1967 and it really was 1969.

HY was also used for 350/300 hp engines in 1969 Corvettes (4B, MT)...

YUP....noticed that, but ignored that application due to the "Police Car" remark in the original post.

Lloyd...The 1969 AIM, Section M20, Sheet A7 shows the setup for a Muncie equipped car and states that the number is 9419402.  Here is a link to the AMK site showing the bolt (Page 117, 5th bolt down).

I ended up using a large pair of angle pliers.  Thanks for the response.  I found a place locally where I could order one.  I was surprised that Harbor Freight doesn't carry them.
That's what I always use...seems to work OK except that the jaws on the pliers tend to scratch the weight mount tab.  But if your not going to save them anyway, that's OK anyway.

That is for the 1968 4spd with console....the original design....right?  Good to hear that someone is trying to get it reproduced.  Thanks for the news.

It sure seems like the '67-'68 4-speed non-console boot would have a hard time fitting into the '69 console shift tunnel. I wonder if it's a typo and they really meant to call out the earlier console shift boot 3893873.
Agree John....I found a photo of a 1969 3spd. tunnel and it appears to me that the #3893853 boot bellows would be too bulky to fit inside the tunnel cutout.

BTW...would like to have that boot you are showing in your photo.

The #3974526 seal looks nothing like #3893853; isn't even close. That's why NOS is $275.
William....the #3974526 seal replaces the #3893873 seal, not the #3893853 seal.  The #3893873 seal is used with a console and the #3893853 seal is used without a console.....you are right, there is a big difference between them.  Tim said he wants to add a console and is wanting to find the right one to use with the console.

Tim....my 1969 Camaro Parts Catalog states that the 1969 3spd with a console uses a #3893873 seal (it is the same seal used on the 1967-1968 4spd & 3Spd with console) and the retainer is part #3893877 (also the same retainer used on the 1967-1968 4spd & 3spd with console)  You are right about the extension....it shows to be #3949540 for the 1969 3spd with console.

The #3893873 seal has been replaced with the #3974526 seal and is still available.  The retainer is available as a reproduction.

There is a NOS one on eBay for only $275.00....... Shocked    I can see why someone would want to get a good reproduction if the NOS is selling for that.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Delco Energizer Y-55 Battery on: April 01, 2015, 12:09:14 AM
Need to find a set of yellow caps. Are they out there reproduced?..
Danny.....I have bought a set of these for a Y55 battery that I have.........
     http://www.classicindustries.com/product/nova/parts/by12007caps.html

There is a couple of problems with this solution though....
     1.  The caps are painted red for the R59 battery but you can find some yellow paint and repaint them.
     2.  They are specifically made for the fake R59 topper so they cut most of the Delco Eye probe off so that it will fit in the shallow hole of the topper.

As Tom stated......I personally wouldn't activate the Y55 battery.   I would just use it as a show battery and replace it with your regular battery when you are ready to start or drive the car.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z Harmonic Balancer or not ? on: March 20, 2015, 08:29:42 PM
Looks exactly like my 1968 Z28 original balancer.  The offset is exactly the same offset that my balancer has.  The 1969 balancer has a larger offset....see this link for a photo of the difference between the 1969 & 1968 balancer.

     http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=356.0

My balancer has a date stamp on the front of the outer ring and a couple of letters on the back side of the inner hub...one of the letters is a "C" and the other letter I can't make out due to a hole drilled through it.

Looks like C-C in several of the photos in Album #1.

There is a total of three albums at the Lucas Restorations site.....If you want to see the complete restoration see the below three links to them.

     Album #1 - https://plus.google.com/photos/107644629042187560326/albums/5254626687404326817?banner=pwa

     Album  #2 - https://plus.google.com/photos/107644629042187560326/albums/5254630737476855265?banner=pwa

      Album #3 - https://plus.google.com/photos/107644629042187560326/albums/5254634173615049921?banner=pwa

Had to edit the Album #3 link....the first time I posted the #2 again.  Now it has been corrected.

I sent an E-mail today to Larry Eakin and asked if the site is still active or dormant.  Will post status when and if I receive a reply.
Just received an answer from Larry and it says......

Jerry,

Thanks for the email. I have been collecting data but have not updated the webiste. I need to find a new webmaster to do that. I'm working on finding one.

Take care
Larry


So it appears Larry is still collecting the data but hasn't edited anything on the website.

Check the "Supplemental Operating Instructions" sheet that is in the photos.  Printed on the sheet is "Turbo-Jet 396 Engine" and "Turbo Hydra-Matic Transmission".  So I would think that it probably did have the automatic originally.
