1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What's the correct Alternator bracket for a 69 Z/28 on: September 19, 2014, 07:16:58 PM
There is a split spacer on AMK that states that it fits 69-73 GM Smog Pumps.  There is no GM part number associated with it but the specs are.....

.39 ID x .51 Length x .49 OD

Might find someone that has an original and get them to check to see if theirs matches the specs on this one.

As far as these car being sequentially, I thought John Z. said cars that required more labor are spaced out so the production crew have more time to do the extra work. If I'm not mistaken  convertibles require more labor. Terry
I believe the body numbers were assigned when the order was received....they could schedule the numbers in any order they preferred.

Here is an alternative for comparison....http://www.realdealsteel.com/all-new-steel-1969-camaro-bodies/  You might want to search around the internet for "complete camaro body shell" and read up on the various sites that will build you a shell.  One of them found will even build you a complete rolling shell for $22,000.00.

Rather than type it out, I'm attaching Lars Grimsrud's excellent paper on how to install a Chevy V-8 distributor; follow the instructions and you'll have it running in no time.
Good write up on "walking the distributor rotor".....I learned this many years ago by accident and never had to use a long screwdriver to index the oil pump shaft thereafter.  Like Lars said, you can walk that rotor around faster than you can find a long screwdriver.  The rest of the article was very well written and informative.  Have never seen this before but I'm sure going to save it for future reference and sharing.

My July 1969 parts book says the part number was 3914863 and in a 1972 parts book the 3931449 has superseded the 3914863.

BTW.....right now GM Parts Direct has one for sale at $14.27 plus shipping.  Looks the same to me.

Danny....this is the usual layout for the plug wires.  The wires are usually cut to length for this layout.  You don't necessarily have to have the #1 plug wire in the position shown.....the #1 plug wire can be anywhere as long as the same firing order is followed, as shown, and the rotor is aimed at the #1 plug wire (at top dead center on the compression stroke)...and also as long as the wires reach the cap slots.  Hope this is not confusing.

Danny...this should be the correct layout.

Anyone know if this is Bill that once lived in Lubbock, Tx.  I heard that he had moved somewhere.

Before you install your balancer........I would put a ring of black RTV around the end of the balancer hub and also some in the key slot to seal out the oil from seeping through.

Looking at my picture and John Z's picture, I better rotate dot-to-dot tomorrow in prep for timing chain alignment. THEN rotate back to 12 and 12 for dist. drop-in.... RIGHT ?... Danny
Good idea.

Danny....You have my curiosity aroused, never thought about that dimple before.  My '68 has a dimple but it is only a 1/4" to the right from the line (balancer laying face down).  Maybe someone will have a logical answer.

Could this PVC and hose with the 2 black pinch clamps be the originals ?  I understand that the PVC could of always been changed for a replacement but what about the hose ?  There's 3 ridge like lines down the hose with no other markings.  Was this a common GM type hose or did they usually have a p/n printed on them ?

Thanks
Hi Darrell....that little PCV valve and hose might be worth as much as $400.00.  I bid over $300.00 for a PCV valve just like yours and didn't win the auction.  So hang on to what you have there.  As to the hose....I have my original 1968 hose and it doesn't have any ridges, it's smooth,.  The ridges could be a '69 thing though.

Yup, just is I thought, you have the short spoiler with no braces.....the same one that was on my 07C car.  The hardware is very interesting also....your car has the standard center bolt (5/16 shouldered) and the small hardware is shouldered screws.  My car has shouldered machine screws on the spoiler side and nuts on the valence side.  There have been several threads on the spoiler and the hardware and this shows that there were indeed two different types of mounting hardware, screws and machine screws with nuts.

Thanks so much for your time and effort for fulfilling our request.
