316  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: April 18, 2011, 04:54:51 PM
Original 1968 Z28, Norwood, 07C, 50 inches (or darn close), staggered yoke alignment, orange and white stripes (13 inches from centerline of yoke to center between the two stripes), attachment looks like u-bolts that are flattened where they go around the u-joint.

My car is not a Z. It's an L48 7A with 6/26 engine stamp. Maybe the Z's had a different rhythm.
Thanx guys I will do some more research. I was under the assumption that Norwood built cars should have about 7 to 10 days between the build date you mentioned, Engine and Car. Cause they didn't have to take the train ride out West... Correct??

 Maybe I could be wrong, it doesn't happen often, but could be.. JUST kidding.....Danny
I seen some discussion that the 302 engines had a longer lag time than the run of the mill engines.  Maybe someone else has more info on lag times....like JohnZ.

Still hard to tell Danny. If you are interested in the car have the seller forward you another pic of the engine pad including any other details that would make you comfortable. Stress to him that the pic on EBay is out of focus... as for the POP all the important info was cropped or left out of the pic.
X2..... That's what I was thinking also...would like to see the engine info on the POP as well as a better photo of the pad stamping.  The engine build date is awful close to the car build date (one week).  My 07c Z28 has an engine build date of 06-19 (one month prior to my car build date).  This car has a VIN of over 4,600 prior to my VIN, yet the engine build date is three weeks after my engine build date (one week prior to this car build date).  Could be a fluke here but it still looks suspicious...as Danny states.

the POP shows to have J50 (power Brakes), it should show J52 (power disc brakes) which is what mine shows
After closer examination the POP does seem to show the (J50&J52) Power disc brake option but it doesn't show a radio option.
This car has a VIN 4658 units before mine, has a transmission one month prior to mine, and the engine manufacture date is one month after mine.

I have a '68Z, I am the second owner, bought it in '72, and it is an 07C car.  My numbers sure don't match up with this car, especially the POP.  I have to go to a baseball game right now but when I return I will match up my car and post some differences. For one, the POP shows to have J50 (power Brakes), it should show J52 (power disc brakes) which is what mine shows.  As I said I just took a quick look at the POP, will try to look closer later.
321  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Shifter id please on: March 26, 2011, 06:07:24 PM
Rodent....
It is stamped MUNCIE on the handle and it appears that it is for a '67 or '68 Camaro.  The same basic shifter was used for both the Muncie  and the Saginaw transmission....The one used for the Muncie transmission had MUNCIE stamped on the handle and the one used for the Saginaw transmission had nothing stamped on the handle.    The shifter rods were different for each transmission.

All big block engines were assembled at the Tonawanda (NY) engine plant.
323  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Rear spring mount on: March 13, 2011, 11:03:13 AM
Is rear end suppose to be perfectly centered? Drive shaft centered in hump of car? Should tires have same clearence on both sides?  
In a word.....Yes....if stock Chevy.  With your modifications....I guess whatever works.
324  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Rear spring mount on: March 12, 2011, 04:09:26 PM
Looks like they have moved the rear spring mounting inboard of the rear frame....it should be centered on the frame.  Another big clue is the sectioned gas tank...the end has been lopped off several inches.  I am enclosing a link that shows the proper rear spring mounting.

Finn....My '68 07C's vin is N475XXX and body number is NOR176XXX.
327  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 Distributor Hold Down clamp on: January 05, 2011, 10:08:11 AM
So from Jerry's observations, it would seem that we at least have all 67's, 68's and early 69's using the wire clamp, then changing to the stamped steel clamp, with the changeover possibly somewhere early 69.
My 1968 07c Z28 has the stamped steel.
328  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Spark plug wire Heat shields on: January 04, 2011, 09:50:26 AM
I agree with you, John.  I know when I disassembled my original '68 engine, the left brackets and the bolts that mounted them to the block were painted orange....indicating to me that they were mounted to the engine when it was painted at the factory.  The shields were apparently added later at the assembly line....along with the right side ones.
329  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: lets reunite another 302 with the original car on: January 04, 2011, 09:28:44 AM
Ken.....Yep, the original block.  Has been "validated" to my satisfaction.  I have owned the car since 1972, am the second owner, and I know for sure it came from my car......I'm the one who removed it.  I have talked to the original owner, he lives only about a mile away from where I live, and he says the engine was never touched when he owned the car.

BTW....we have discussed the 50 difference in the VIN's before over on TC.

Here is a picture of my '68Z, 07C block stamping.  You have to look real close to see the last number of the VIN, hard to make out.  The last two are "99".
