"BJ" is the identification code of the pulley that was used on the assembly line.  You showed an earlier picture of the real drums that had a "BU" sticker and the front springs had an "EE" sticker.  Same thing.

Here is a photo from the Lucas Restorations web site showing what appears to be an original 68 Z28 engine exhaust manifold and the center section does indeed have the washers behind the bolts.  I see you have the same question over on TC so I will also post this same info there for them to see.

Got it.....thanks a million for your help.

Thanks Danny....excellent photos of the valve.  One more check...does the valve have a number code, maybe like a date code, on it.  I have a couple of later ones that have a two digit code on them.

Again....Thanks

Hi Harv.....have you checked out the thread by Danny on the original 68Z that he has bought?   What a good series of photos.....check out Post #46 (http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=12453.45.  I think that will show what you are looking for.

As to the screw...you might ask him to check what his looks like.

Danny....would it be possible to show a couple of photos of the PCV valve....curious to see, if it is the original, what it looks like.  Thanks in advance.

Might be interesting to see a complete spring tag.  I think there was a post recently about finding the right spring tag so that a correct repro could be made (might have been on TC site).  Man you have some good original stuff on this car....could be very interesting for an example of the correct restoration.

BTW....that WT stamped master cylinder is the correct one for the 68 Z28.

Danny...as to the number on the firewall...yes it is a run number.  On my '68, I have the number 22 on the firewall, inside front valence, and on the backside of the spare wheel.  I've seen several early cars that have a ballast resistor....usually added because of a faulty resistor wire.  Might check the wiring from the resistor and see if it goes to the coil.  If it has a standard '68 radio then it should be 12v powered so it wouldn't need a resistor.

Water pump?  Were you recently hunting for a 326 water pump?  Thought I responded to a post on here about someone wanting a 326 pump and we discussed dates.

Danny....one of the shifter rods has a loose lock nut .  Did you do that?  Also...you showed a ballast resistor...there was no ballast resistor in the '68.  It was a ballast resistor wire.  Thanks for the photos...will keep comparing to my 07C.  Already have noticed something interesting....my engine block and heads have casting dates almost identical to yours but my engine assembly date is 06-19.  Guess they had a stockpile of those dates and were still using them even in June.

Kurt...well said and I agree 100% with your actions.

BTW....welcome home.  Hope your year away was eventful and enjoyable.

For an example, my 06-19-68 engine has a distributor date stamp of 8F4.....so this looks like a two week spread.

Ed...Am very sorry to see you go but I can understand your feelings.  Will dearly miss your presence and the knowledge you shared with us.

God speed......

For you 1968 guys....my original setup is identical to the one shown by Dave in the TC post.  And this is the setup that screws into the back of the block....not behind the guages.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Which water pump needed for '68 Z28 on: June 04, 2014, 11:16:30 PM
Hi Danny.....At one time I was asking the same questions that you are now asking.  Back in the 80's, I had replaced my water pump with a rebuilt one that had a different cast number and had the 3/4" bypass output.  Several years ago I started looking for the correct pump that would be right for my car.  Well finally....after looking all this time, I found a 326 pump with a 1/2" bypass output on eBay that seemed right for my engine.  My engine build date is 06-19-68 and all of the engine components have casting dates in the first week of 05-68 and the pump I found had a casting date of E-1-68 so that is what I am going to use.  I don't think I will ever find another one that would be any more acceptable than the one I found.

Hope you can find an acceptable one as well.

Danny......here is my original that is nine days later than the one you are displaying.  And no my VIN is not one digit short....the last digit is very light....you can barley make it out.
