16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Cleaning outside of TH350 case on: September 30, 2013, 07:22:06 PM
Thanks for the reply Indy.  Here are a few pictures of what is going on with my transmission.  First is a before picture, then I pressure washed it, and started soaking it with Purple Power. I have started scrubbing the left side with a brass bristle brush.  I need to scrub some more and then start on the right side. Progress is slow but sure.  Then I guess I etch the skin and then brighten it with the DX579 and DX501.   Right?
17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Cleaning outside of TH350 case on: September 29, 2013, 12:05:12 AM
I need some ideas on how to clean my Turbo 350 transmission case.  I have read what I could find on the subject, but need more input.  The transmission is original to the car and had never been out until I removed it for restoration.  I blocked all the openings and pressure washed all the major grime and road dirt off of it. After 44 years, it was pretty filthy.  The case is still very dirty looking and stained. Some say that glass beading will clean it, but will leave the texture on the aluminum wrong.  One guy says to blast it with walnut shells. What did you guys with the top show cars do, or have done, to give your transmissions that just off the assembly line look? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Opinions are just that.  Smiley  All I can say is that whatever type of bolt it is in your opinion, Norwood put it there during the build of my car.

Those pictures I posted are of my original bolt from my 11D (68) Norwood RS/SS convertible.  I purchased the car unmolested from the original owner in 1974.  The bolt may not be "normal" in some opinions, but it is the one the car was born with for sure.

The bolt that holds the fuel line bracket near the tank on my car is a dark phosphate 5/16"-18 X 1.0" pointed bolt with a 3/4" conical washer attached.  The head marking is an Anchor over T.  AMK offers the same bolt, only 1/8 inch shorter, part # B-10900. Their price is $4.00 for 2.  Hope this helps.

My 11D Norwood car has it's original booster dated 310 (November 6, 1968), which is less than a month from my build date.

L48's (SS 350s) also came with hood insulation standard.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Strange Block Casting Number on: July 22, 2012, 09:33:44 AM
The picture you show is the casting number of the Tonawanda cast intake manifold, which is correct for Tonawanda built 350 4 barrel engines.  The block casting number is on the block surface between the bellhousing and intake manifold (behind your coil and distributor).
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Proper Starter Paint Scheme on: July 14, 2012, 04:55:27 PM
Working as a Chevrolet line tech from 1971 to 1990, I rebuilt many starters.  As far as I can remember, on starters with Aluminum noses, the noses were natural unpainted, and starters with cast noses, the noses were painted.  The solenoids were always natural and the starter frame was always painted black. My memory isn't perfect, but I did do a lot of starters.

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=7928.0;attach=6453;image     Here is a picture of JohnZ's heat riser on his 69 Z from a post on this Forum. My L48 is the same. I don't have any pictures of mine at this time, it is wrapped up on an engine stand right now. However,  it is pictured in the assembly manual under UPC 6  C6, and on page 13 of Jerry M's 1969 book.  Hope this helps.

I don't know, my L48 doesnt have a "barrel" spring. My car was built November (11D) 1968. Maybe it is a later date or a big block thing?Huh
