Thanks again William!!!!!

I think I understand what you are saying....that it looks like the 1969 version, but the mesh is rotated by 90 degrees.

Again, THANKS.  This kind of stuff is keeping me up until 2 in the morning doing non-stop searches!

THANKS William!!!!!  You rule.

I have the 1-69 Hot Rod and I think I was making myself blind staring at the tiny engine picture on page 33. 

From your info, I just ordered the 4-69 PHR off EBay but did not find the 8-69 Road Test.....yet.

That is a beauty John!!!!  I ended up sending mine to someone who had loads of recommendations - Joe Perri out of Chicago Ill.

I will post up pics when I get it back.


Jeff,

You have an amazing collection.  Wow!

Every time I think something should be simple, it ends up more complicated than I ever thought it would be.  I also think I wrote my initial post in a confusing way.

Maybe a better way to ask is.......which filter wire on a A212CW is correct for a January 1969 Z/28 with no cowl?

Should it look like this late 1969 version?


Or should it look like the 1967 version?

Not the same part# but similar air filter. I thought 69's had the sq. type mesh and embossed part #.
Thought service replacements have both stenciling and changes in wire & configuration.

Here is one on ebay for sale that has a box dated past mid 70's! Notice how the sq wire runs different from JohnZ's pic.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/260988334111?_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649&item=260988334111&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWAX:IT&vxp=mtr

Since the dates on the box on the EBay one go up to 1978, I would guess the EBay one is from 1978 or 1979.

I also have never seen any postings where original A212CW's were embossed on the top.  Everything I have seen says that the original A212CW's had white silkscreening starting with "BEST WAY TO PROTECT" on them.  

I think the Corvettes were similar and I found something on the "Corvette Restoration Guide, 1968 - 1982" by Richard Prince.

“All 1968 and 1969 Corvettes not equipped with an L88 or ZL1 use an open element air cleaner assembly.  The assembly is comprised of a base, an element, and a lid.

  ……………etc etc.

Original air filter elements have ‘BEST WAY TO PROTECT YOUR ENGINE – REPLACE WITH TYPE A 212 CW’ silk screened in white around the horizontal lip.   Furthermore, original elements, unlike later replacements, have a fine wire screen around the outside.  Most replacements use a noticeably heavier wire.  Earlier cars probably utilize an element with the wire screen in a diagonal pattern.  Later cars probably use an element with the wire screen in a horizontal pattern.  With a horizontal pattern, the wire forms rectangles with the longer measurement running vertical when the element is installed.”

For a 1969 Z/28, 2nd week of January (01B) what A212CW filter is correct?  JohnZ has posted A212CW photos on this site in the past, but the links do not work any more.

JohnZ has a side view of one from 1967:



It looks like #1 and #2 match, but #3 is very different with the straight wire.

Thanks guys!  I am thinking about sending it out to be restored.
128  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Original radiator cap? on: March 24, 2012, 10:19:44 PM
I have been going through parts that came with my 01B 1969 Z and one of the parts is the radiator cap.  Is this an original cap?  The rivet on top looks odd and why is there a hole in one of the ears?

Are you able to read the date and part number on it?

The car is being restored but the next time I am at the shop, I will check it.

Don do have the correct sticker for a 1969 coupe built in November 1968? George.

Hi George. I've had requests to do them over the last year or so, but to date nobody has provided high quality pictures of an original for us to work with.

I wish my 01B 69 Z/28 had a better condition one that you could work with.  Here's mine:

low miles, but NOM motor. Clean looking car, but I think overpriced considering it is not the original motor, even if the tag is correct.

I think I must have missed something.  The ad states "Behind the cars original motor..................".

I'll second Muscle Car City in Punta Gorda.  I went with my father-in-law and thought it was a terrific place.  My father-in-law loves Corvettes and spent about an hour looking at them while I checked out the Camaros.  The Impalas and Chevelles were pretty cool too.

He sells them on EBay.  His EBay ID is: 69-er

Here is a link to one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-69-Camaro-FULL-COLOR-WIRING-DIAGRAMS-With-Electrical-Troubleshooting-Manual-/160731563885?pt=Race_Car_Parts&hash=item256c59076d

and he has additional ones listed.  I just bought one last night!

CRG rules!

The barn find survivor is a Van Nuys First week of May 1969 Z/28.

Mine is a Norwood Second week of January 1969 Z/28.
