Evaporust isn't supposed to removed paint, so apparently there wasn't much there that wasn't 'integrated' with the rust/dirt... Smiley  I don't think GM expected anything to be there after 44 yrs anyway.. Smiley
If you leave a part in the solution for a minimal length of time it won't remove the paint.  If you leave a part in the solution for two days, as mentioned about the driveshaft,the paint will become very soft and easily removed by wiping or brushing.

This one is from my 1968 Z28....There is a possibility that different years might have different bolt heads.

Bolt Head



Bolt Lengthwise - 1 1/8" by 3/8"



Clamp - up side



Clamp - Down side

Steve....i wondered about the order cut-off date myself.  Don't remember when it was back then.  That's why I was wondering if it might have been for a car that was already in stock.

That sales receipt is sure in good shape for a 45 year old document.  If this document is the real deal, I would think that is a sales receipt for a new vehicle in stock....there is a stock number already assigned to the vehicle and the VIN is already available.  This receipt could be one that was written for a particular vehicle and the buyer changed his mind and purchased another one.....might account for the fact that the document wasn't signed.  The buyer then might have received both receipts and the wrong one was kept.

The POP is also dated 8/7/1968, so that would be only be a little over a week from the day the sales receipt was written....To short a time to order one and receive it.  They might have found one from another dealer that the buyer liked and purchased that one.

Just my two pennies.....

In 1969 (for the N10 exhaust), both the Z28 and L48 had 2.25" head pipes EXCEPT where they attached to the exhaust manifolds. That "connection point" was 2" but I'm not sure how far that 2" pipe extended down until it turned into 2.25". The "over the axle" pipes were also 2.25", but the tail pipes were 2".

For NC8, the Z28 headpipes were 2.25" in diameter EXCEPT where they attached to the exhaust manifolds. Again, that "Connection point" was 2" like the N10, and again, I don't know how far down it extended until it turned into 2.25". The short "over the axle" pipes were 2" after that first chambered section and then the tailpipes were also 2".

Steve, take a look at page 109 in Jerry's "The Definitive 1969 Camaro Z28-SS396 Fact Book" and you'll see a shipper of a April, 1969 Z28 with the NC8 option.

Ed

I think Ed covers this....2" at the end connection point  (the connection to the exhaust pipe on one side and the heat valve on the other side) that increases to 2 1/4" from about one or two inches below the connection all the way to the muffler.

This block was certified original by Jerry M. What I don't understand is, why are the numbers crooked. The 4 and the 5 are hanging down lower on the end. Were not all of these stamps done with a gang holder?? Why are they not lined up straight even across? ... Danny

         
   Here it is on eBay       http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Frame-off-restoration-on-a-fully-original-z28-with-documentation-/300943817633?_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&forcev4exp=true
 
Danny....here is my 1968 Z28 MO numbers for comparison.  Mine is very close to the one you posted about.  BTW....the last two numbers of my serial number should be "99" but the last 9 does not show very well.

Good questions.....no answers, but I do have set of them hanging in my storage that I bought in 1974.  Maybe they will be worth a mint someday Roll Eyes

Where on the BB cover is the date stamped? I'd like to look at mine.

Thanks,
Mike
Mike.....can't say about the big block covers but if they are like the small block covers, you can only see the dates with the harmonic balancer pulled.  The best way is to have it removed, cleaned, and on the bench.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Timing Cover date codes on: July 28, 2013, 06:06:33 PM
I have a 1968 Z28 cover that is stamped "3 68".
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Not Camaro, general auto related: cruise control in rain question on: July 28, 2013, 01:31:32 PM
You can hydroplane even on a clear day and the cruise will spin the tires.  Didn't happen to me on a Camaro but on my 2002 GMC Sierra.  It had rained, but cleared off and the pavement had dried.  I had cruise back on and came around a curve and hit some water that was running out of the ditch across the highway.  The engine revved up and it started to slide a bit, but the cruise shut off by itself before I even had time to hit the brakes.  No harm done....but it was scary for a second.

My 1968 07C Z28 has a engine build date of 0619.  It is already on the list....just need to add build date if you do decide to do so.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Big Block Distributor Hold Down Clamp on: July 17, 2013, 06:03:47 PM
Bob....Can't think of any reason they would use different ones for different engines.  All the engines, big block or small block, would get the same part as they came down the engine assembly line.
