Jerry I did not notice that. I will make a note and when it is up in the air next for Trans service, I will check them all. I was wondering about that resistor, as I have never seen another one on a '68. I thought it dropped the voltage from 12 to 8 volts to save the points?? Or is what I have there for the radio? Again... help me out people...  I read online that there is something about May and June in '68. They have a lot of discrepancies with blocks and other parts. Maybe somebody will chime in, as I forgot what it said. 

 Jano,  I have all of Jerry's books. But as you know, there is a lot of stuff NOT in those books. And it always seem to be the stuff "I" need to know... ha ha 

 Ok, off to install the water pump. Maybe some more pic's first... Danny

Front Rotor.. I thought so... In my notes 142 is Tuesday May 21st 1968. But I wonder what the G1 is?? Just fun to learn ya know..

  I sure wish some of the more knowledgeable guys than me would chime in and tell me if the...Windshield VIN Plate - Hidden VIN Stamp - Block Casting - Block Casting Date - Front Pad Stamps - Trans VIN - Trans Assembly - ALL Rear End stamping - Serial Number Production Dates...Are original for sure, as I am getting nervous. At least tell me if the Cowl Tag and Rivets Look ok... Kurt, Jerry M, Mark, Ed, William, Joe, Paul, Chick, Ted, Pete, Frank, Mike, Dan, Sam, Jim, Harry, Brian, Brendan, Matt, Alan, Andy, Darrell, Cameron, David, Dennis... Wow there is a lot of names, Not even in e's and G's yet.. I better stop. Of course some of these are for fun..  Grin

Jano, I will buy the Lucas 10W/40, Sounds good to me. I was hoping some other guys with close, even closer than yours, would chime in with some comparisons on stamps, dates and fonts. We'll see...

HELP... Just realized I don't know what oil to run. Gotta change it as it smells of gas and surely has no viscosity left. I put a whole container of Lucas oil treatment in it, and it has been in there during the whole timing, point dwell set and carb adjustments. So now I wanna drain it and then drain it again. I bought 3 filters but have no oil. Someone mentioned to buy Jo Gibb oil at 10 bucks a quart cause it has the proper lubricants added. AFTER the flushing of it all. What is this oil?? Only 56 thousand original miles, but sat for probably 20 years or more. Also what trans and rear diff fluid do I use. And should I add GM posi additive in the rear? I wanna try to buy all this stuff in the next week or so if I can get the money together. It's killing me, I wanna drive this baby..  Smiley Smiley

Hey Hoss, thanx, yes it is pretty cool for sure... Nice job with the CLR. Looks like a commercial for the company.  Grin I have to say there is spots where there is NO paint. The rust is deep. I am leaving it all as it is. I will buff it out and treat it and leave it be. I don't have thousands of dollars for a paint job. I barely had enough money to buy the water pump last week. So paints not going to happen.

 Thanx Paul, I know my fellow enthusiasts want pictures pictures, then more pictures. So like I mentioned, I will make that happen. As I have spent probably well over 100 hours. This car is pretty darn original for sure. EVERYTHING is dated May '68. All the requirements of date stamping times according to CRG are correct. This needs to be stamped before this, and this needs to be with-in this many days of that and so on...

 Hey JoeC, the shifter is not bad. I saturated it with white lithium grease and just soaked it with that. It was already ok, but shifts well. I then read to not use that kind of lubricant on shifters... whoops.. I have some pictures of the shifter, they are not great cause it's tucked up in the well, but I will post them right now.

Maroman, I had never heard of that. I will give it a shot as I have 2 or 3 gallons of white vinegar. I use it to clean the combustion chambers in On Demand tankless water heaters. It gets really hot in that garage, right at 90 a couple days ago. So I better do it on a day like yesterday... 77 outside. So much cooler in garage.

George, I noticed that clip also. It is sticking out a bit and still holding on. I will be at my girlfriends garage later today. I will follow the harness and try to get you some pictures. If not, tomorrow should work.
