31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: speedo clips and location on: January 10, 2014, 02:34:17 PM
Does anyone have an installed photo of the speedo clip that's located on the passenger side of the trans tunnel? I need the precise location (measured off the trans tunnel seam?) and the orientation (speedo cable captured / clamped below the drilled hole or above the hole?). Thanks.  
Hi Lloyd, just posted this pic on team Camaro for Mike as he is asking the same question. This pic gives some idea but will check my dimensions on my car today and post. This pic is off a good friends 68Z survivor. Unmolested two owner local car. If memory serves me well I believe both his and mine were approximately 4" back from the unibody seam.
My 1968 measurement is appx 4 to 4.25 from the seam and the clip orientation is the same as the one chick has shown.  If you have the transmission crossmember installed, it is 4.5 from the crossmember to the clip hole.

The number is probably 50, which is the production sequence number.  Don't know about Lloyd's but my 1968 has the marking in the same area.  Mine is the number 22. This number also appears on the inside of the front valence panel and also on the back side of my spare tire.

Here is a photo of my firewall.....

That is a GREAT pic Jerry!!!

69 AIM UPC-6, sheet C6 + JohnZ's car + 68 Magazine pic equals the heat riser goes the other way.



What magazine was the picture in?  Also, what is the month and year of the magazine?
Went back and checked some notes with that photo....was quoting from memory before...and the notes said that it was from some prior post by Jerry M. that originally came from the GM archives.  I saved it because it was a very clear underhood photo of a 1968 Z28 and that is what I own.

Here is a magazine photo of a 1968 Z28 test vehicle and you can see the heat riser.

Here is a photo of my 1968 Z28 07C original distributor.  You can compare and decide on the number.

FYI....There are two different searches when you request a part number....normally you give them a part number and they will search to see if they have it in stock or if  it is currently not discontinued, they will order it for you.  There is another search where they will query all the other GM dealers for the part number to see if they have in stock....normally they will not do this for you as it is time consuming and they do not want their parts guys taking up this additional time.  If your are on good terms with a local parts guy, you might get this done for you if you ask.

That has been my experience anyway.

Ran a search on a 3746844 valve and came up with this web page.....http://www.fvstore.com/NOS-OEM-GM-HEAT-RISER-VALVE-3887034-CASTING-3746844/p19738.html.  You can then plug this  #3887034 in the Query String box of this web site.....http://www.gmpartswiki.com/query and then hit the search button and it will give you several instances of this part number applications.

According to my July 1969 issue of the 1967-1969 Camaro Master Parts catalog, the heat riser valve is the same part number for the 1967 thru 1969, 302ci, 327ci, and 350 ci engines and that part number is #3887023.  I have my original 1968 Z28 heat riser valve in my hand and it looks identical to the NOS one shown above.  I would take a picture of mine but being it looks identical, I see no reason for another picture.

BTW.....the 1969 AIM shows in the exact position as John Z's.
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: BR or B-R on ignition coil can? on: October 30, 2013, 11:50:26 AM
My 1968 07C Z28 has the B-R.

That was part of the research on the other thread was to try to pin point the time frame of the change.  We know Steve's 01C car is straight and Im still waiting on rare396bronze confirmation on his lid being straight or curved.  My initial thought is that the lid is for a 68 at this point but it is still a little early to know 100%. 

I would really love to hear from some other late 68 & early 69 cars if they have the original lid..
My original 1968 07C Z28 has the curved lettering.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Z/28 firewall crayon marks, question? on: September 22, 2013, 05:19:36 PM
Bill,
your the man, great pics. So I know you see the Camaros at shows with all the paint dabs and crayon marks all over everything after it has the finish paint, (ex: engine compartment) . I have the "PTB" stamps on my firewall, but would any 69 camaro have left the factory with crayon marks on the black paint on the firewall, or were the crayon marks only and always used before paint?

and a follow up question: why do you see front license plate brackets with out the license plate but then a white "X" in crayon?
Examples of the crayon on paint build number on my 1968 07C.....

Does your setup look like this?   

        

If so.....After looking at these pictures, I think the sequence looks like this...

     1. Floor pan
     2. Rubber boot
     3. Boot retainer is screwed down through boot and into floor screw holes
     4. Carpet is cut to fit up to the inner edge of the retainer
     5. The bezel then screws down over the carpet and into the raised retainer screw holes

45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Plugging Big Block Smog Exhaust Manifolds on: September 10, 2013, 09:15:35 AM
Could be wrong but I think we are talking about filling the inside hole (where the extension seats) with a screw and then screwing the air manifolds into the threaded hole (the flare on the air manifold seats on the screw and the pressure on the screw seals off the exhaust air from coming into the air manifold.) .  If you are not planning on using your air manifold, then using brass plugs to fill the vacant hole is a good choice.
