16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Stamping Tool for VIN on Block & Trans on: March 26, 2013, 10:59:03 AM
Yes, the trim tag shows 06A as the time built code. The trans is an M20 as shown by the two rings on it.  See attached pictures. I have looked at the VIN on the block with a magnifying glass and also used a crayon and I can only make out the last 4 numbers of the VIN.

Was the stamping tool for the VIN number used on the block also used to stamp the VIN on the transmission? The reason I ask is that I just pulled the engine out of my 69 Z and found the last 4 digits of the VIN stamped on the rough cast area by the oil filter. The stamping of course is very hard to see although the 4 digits I see are clear. So far I can't see any other letters or numbers in front of those four. The VIN stamping on the transmission is very clear but the first few letters are kinda light.

A little background info on this Z. Bought it in November 1983 and knew at the time that the block had been decked on a previous rebuild that blueprinted & balanced the engine. I also knew it was a real Z by the X33D80 on the trim tag. I was looking for a Z at the time and this was a nice car.

I have been doing a lot of research on CRG lately and have used that to make some discoveries about my car. I pulled the engine on Sunday in preparation to fix a rear main seal leak and some clean up and detailing. In the process, I checked part numbers, date codes, took pictures and created a document listing what I found. Of course I found some incorrect pieces(some I knew about already) but also found a lot of original items.

Let me know what you think about the stamping tool.

Larry, did you try AMERICAN AUTOWIRE as Steve suggested in your ORIGINAL thread?

Of course, your other option would be to spend stupid money on THIS ONE.


Ed, I had forgotten that I had asked that question earlier. Thanks.

Does anyone reproduce the 6297684 AS positive battery cable? My 06A 69 Z has this cable on it.


20  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Repro 69 Z-28 Positive Battery Cable on: February 16, 2012, 11:31:10 AM
Need to replace the original positive battery cable on my 69Z. It is part # 6297684 AS. Do any of the Camaro vendors sell a reproduction of this cable? I talked to M&H in early December and was told that they could stamp their reproduction with that part #. I think they are reproducing the 6297683 cable.

Thanks in advance for any help.
