Originality / Re: original coil spring tag size and build date
« on: April 02, 2016, 12:29:23 PM »
I had Don make my spring tags. My original front tags were 15/16" wide, 3955712 EM.  He had no problem making the right size, but font is where we had a problem. The 'M' on the original tag looks like an upside down 'W'. I finally found the proper font and what he made was an exact match. Excellent job!! :)

1967 Fisher Body Manual would be the place to start.

And yes both of my original hoses had covers on them though badly deteriorated.

I found a replacement hose cover, and they look pretty good, matched original covers really well.  I found them at Virginia Classic
Here's a picture before drivetrain was installed.

Restoration / Reconditioning Rubber Bumpers
« on: February 12, 2016, 02:02:57 AM »
I need some help on how to recondition my rear axle frame rail bumpers. They are actually in pretty good condition (rubber is still pliable and there are no cuts, splits, or dry rot).  But the color and overall appearance is dirty looking.  Should I wash in soapy water?  Then should they be treated with something?  I know they should not be shiney.  I would appreciate any answers.  Thanks.

Considering that this guy lied about the "convertible" firewall (original ad showed coupe rockers and later he removed the picture), do you really think that this one is what he says it is???

This is a picture of my original P/S hoses when I first pulled my engine and transmission off my sub-frame.  It's a 350 SS car, but P/S is identical to the 302 Z/28 cars.

To me, and maybe it's just me (old and confused), the 1969 assembly manual is confusing. Under N10, A1 shows no resonators, then A2 and A3 picture resonators. Did my 11D 350 SS-RS convertible (which probably came off the line around Dec 6, 1968) originally have resonators or not? All 4 original hangers were intact, but that doesn't tell me what system it had.  Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

Is it true that Chevrolet did not put clocks in Pace cars with gauges because they are timeless? or is it just another attempt to deceive the masses?
