Hey Jerry that was pretty sweet. I am not complaining by any means, but I wonder why the camera operator didn't zoom in on the car as it went down the track? Again, not complaining. Just would have been nice to see the finish and the time on the light board. Just hit the zoom button as ya go. Just a thought as things got pretty small near the middle and end. To hard to see.....Danny

Hey Kurt, your right I clicked on it. I guess all this time I have been having fun just doing it in my head. I better check my math eh? Alot of times I also look at calendars on line and count it up. But I will use that from here on out.

Yes I also noticed that your 69' valve didn't have a large " E " What I need is about 50 from each year. I'll probably be dead by then but maybe it's worth a try. I better will them all to CRG to keep the dream alive. ha ha       Still interested in what more people think on the subjset and what other info can be added on these valves........

Glad ya got the picture....Danny

Hey Billy, yes funny I have that number AND the day before. Of course they must have had several of the same numbers. How many I couldn't say. But I have seen many with the same number as one of mine. Just like yours is...... I think the most common times I have seen before the build date of the car is about 35 days. That seems to be the norm. Perhaps Kurt, John, Jerry and the rest could verify that more tight on the days. BUT however I have seen them 65 days prior to build date on an ALL original one owner car. So who knows really......Lunch time over, back to the on demand Water Heater project...........Danny

Hey Kurt, yes, funny how that collection thing works eh? I see you have a valve dated at Thursday Feb. 6th of 69'. I also have a couple original bolts myself. So is that just a picture, or are you selling me that valve for my collection?   ha ha
 So I was right ....KINDA. ...I was wondering like I mentioned if that "R" meant Rear Brakes. But it might mean rear outlet since it is by one of the holes. Funny that the Julian dating link you posted only does month and year and NOT day??  Wonder why?

 I have seen some others in diff. locations over the years like ya mentioned. I even found them with Diff. bracket set-up above the rear axle on 70's chevelle's. I still think I wanna stay with first gen collecting on these.
Anyway, I will do what I can on the picture thing, I am not sure I know how to do your request, not a super wiz kid on the computer. I may have to take a close-up of each one, and then send them to ya directly without reducing the size. I just wrote it on my clip board so I don't forget. Speaking of clip board viewing...I gotta go install a On Demand Water Heater that produces 14 Gallons per minute, and then wire it into motion sensors connected to recirc. pumps...Good Times!   It's a monster if ya want alot of hot water........Over and Out............Danny

Hey OregonJam, I believe this dating system was started by astronomers. And it really represents alot more then most car people want to delve into. In fact I think we are in about our second billion julian date at this point, and that goes back to the 1400's. But I digress.
  We car people use it for the 365 day year. It is the same basic set-up as many other car parts. Like your brake booster on a Camaro has it stamped in it. It is the Julian dating system. Each day denotes a number of the year. Then the dash number after that is the year itself. There are others also that are AFTER 69' I am only collecting 67'-68'-and 69' first generation. So if it's 223-7 it's the two hundred and twenty third day of 1967. Then just look at a calendar from that year and you would see the date of manufacturing. Just like my sharpie writing on each valve, it represents the day. I am hoping some master's like John and Jerry pipe in and let me know what they think. As far as the other letter's, I am guessing when I say the KH is for Kelsey Hayes?? And the small "R" stands for rear?? Again, this is just my own assumptions. I could be wrong on BOTH. Also on 1969 valves only there is a large "E" sideways stamped in the valve. That one has me stumped. I am trying to collect enough some day to know what day that "E" got started. And was it at BOTH plants. Anyway, just fun stuff like that. I may sell the whole collection in one shot and call it goodbye. Some I paid $25, others I paid $200. And I have seen many at $250 or more. It just depends on the year and such.   Danny

Well here is my collection. Trying to get the pictures to load. Ya think it is worth it to keep up the research on these? Trying to find patterns in stamping and hole sizes etc. etc. Worth the effort? Or sell them off and let it go?....Danny

Wow, and there ya have it. I don't feel too bad now. I really like the book, it's just that I always wonder when they take the pictures, if they check-out the car first for originality. Or just take some oldtimers word for it. Well it looks like the newer version has lot's more info. Going to have to get it coming.......Danny

He people, this book is at right now, new for $49. They also have 13 used starting at $4.45 on up to over $100. This is as of 11:55am on Thursday July 9th.
Good Luck....
 Speaking of books, I was talked into paying $100 years ago for a copy of " Camaro" 1967- 1969 Fact Book by M.F. Dobbins and F.J.R. Incremona. I have since seen them go for $150 and $200. It has a 69 Pace car on the cover on a lawn with some brush behind it. No pace car decal's. It is dated 1984. 237 pages ...What's the scoop with this book? Anybody know how accurate it is, and why I paid so much...ha ha  I have looked it over and it seems it has some mistakes here and there compared to current data....YES? Or is it just me and everything is accurate? I was told it is very hard to find and out of print for many years. Here is a picture of it. However it's not for sale........Danny   

Thanx very much guys. Was hoping for something much more exciting. But that ain't your fault. Well I guess I will blast them up and try to get a few bucks for them. Over and out..........Danny

Hey guys, just picked up a set of 3 Rally wheels from an old friend. Couldn't find the code in any of my books. Could it be they are AFTER 69'. Cause I have no knowledge of anything after first gen. Probably going to sell them and just wanted to at least know what they fit and how much they may be worth. Here is the letter and numbers. Any help would be appreciated.........Danny

K 1 7      6       STEM HOLE   15  FW
K 1 7      6       STEM HOLE   22  FW
K 1 7      6       STEM HOLE   15  FW

Hey Guys, just a piece of advice from a rookie. ANYTIME I see something like this, I give false info to the seller. I would say my block is special and has an extra number, and there is only 9 ever made. Then I email them 645926574 or similar. If he emails back in two days and says he has it.....well.... you know the rest. If he emails back and says, sorry I don't have it but I have some others. THEN I say my friend is also looking for his car. Then I give MY REAL block number, and go from there.........Danny

Decoding/Numbers / Re: eBay VO127DZ no VIN w/ - A 17 8 - Cast date??
« on: February 23, 2009, 04:25:49 PM »
Hey guys, if I had to guess I would say it's a nine. Look at the size of the TOP of the 8 in relation to that number. It is way smaller. In fact it would just about fit inside the top of that number. So from a non-pro guy, I would bet money it's a nine. It also sweeps around like a nine, like a six upside down. ? Again, just my thinking on it........Danny

Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 V0103 MO stamped block with no VIN
« on: February 18, 2009, 06:35:47 AM »
Hey Hot Rod Todd, did you notice that the block you are asking about has the same exact assembly date as another you mentioned. A few days ago you were wondering about the Corvette Bronze 68' Z/28. It has VOIO3MO also. What are the odds, the same day. BUT, it has a VIN stamped on it and has never been decked. I have seen probably 50 of the early MO blocks and they ALL had a VIN stamped on them. Real curious what Jerry, and the guys are going to say.....Danny
