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.

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.
37  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

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.

Lloyd....don't know for sure about the '69 but my original '68 Z28 has two different manufacturers for the exhaust manifold bolts.  One side had the raised circle bolts with a "RSC" inside the circle.  The other side had a flatter circle on the head with a squiggly "X" inside the circle.  My computer that has my camera software on it is down right now so I can't send a photo at present.  Will try later tonight when I get it back up, that is if your interested.

Mine doesn't....1968 07C Z28 and I've owned it since 1972 and PO says nothing changed on vehicle when he had it.

The part number 3970657 should be for a complete assembled short block (This part number was listed in an earlier parts book I have).  The other part numbers for the block shouldn't even be listed if a complete short block assembly was ordered.

The 3970647 is for a fitted block assembly, that is an assembly that includes most everything but the crankshaft.  

Can't understand why they busted out the parts and listed them separately.  Well maybe they listed them separately to run up the bill.  I'm sure the sum total of all the block pieces would be higher than the price of a complete short block.

It does seem that they received a 1969, 4-bolt, 302ci assembly.

KEZ.......check out this link to a GM parts manual dated DEC 1972.  It has the numbers for the various 302 parts.  The initial web page displays two sections....the first section is the illustrations and the second section is the part numbers.  If you have any problem, just post the part numbers and we can look them up for you.
