211  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Ebay BBC SS/RS car LOS cowl tag on: November 15, 2011, 01:19:54 PM
Do we know how many production days were in a week? Was it Monday thru Friday, Were car assembled on Saturdays and Sundays?

Here's an old thread, Monday through Friday, two 8 hour shifts.  You can also use the advanced search and learn about related things like scheduled plant holidays, effects of strikes, etc.  I think it was mentioned in another thread that in certain circumstances they would schedule Saturday work, but it was generally not a common practice.

212  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhasut Manifold bolt washers on: November 08, 2011, 07:29:49 PM
The middle ports did not have washers under the bolts.  The outer/end ports of the manifolds got the thick spacer washer, then a french lock, then the bolt.  The tabs on the french lock were bent over the bolt hex head to prevent loosening.  The order is important because you cannot properly bend the locks if the washer is in between it and the hex bolt head.

Here's pics of both the thick washers and french locks for SBC and BBs.  Factory locks were steel, most repops are stainless.

I can't recall exactly, but if you start adding a/c brackets etc to the manifolds you need to check your AIM to see if the french lock was still used or left off.

You can check out colors here, enter make and year next to the red arrow and the PPG paint chip sheet with codes will be displayed.  Just look for the same code under the various makes.

Is Burnished Brown the same color as Cappuccino on the 69 Pontiacs? I had a 69 GTO with the Cappuccino Brown and It was very nice.

Appears to be the same as 69 Pontiac Expresso Brown.  Didn't see a standard Cappuccino color for 69 Pontiac, Buick used the Burnished Brown name and Olds used Sable.  Cadillac did not use that color in 69.
215  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: what is unique or special about the 1111480 distributor? on: October 27, 2011, 12:50:08 PM
For a distributor you should be looking at engine assembly date, at least a week prior according to JohnZ on this older thread:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=3868.0

If you have a 1111168 (67 L48) in your car now, those are fairly rare and bring decent money to someone looking for a particular date.

It'll only have decent worth to someone looking for that particular date range for a 67 Camaro "back to original" resto.  You could go over to the Team Camaro site and put a free ad in the classifieds, listing the casting dates and engine plant stamp.  Since the 327s didn't have the partial VIN stamp I'm not sure if it could be listed in the 67 Orphans section on this site.

There seems to be an awful lot of pitting in that pic of the RH lower control arm and x member.  Pretty rusty faceplate screws in the speedo shot, lack of any documentation, wear on the console and missing rear ashtray cover, etc.  It's just not passing the "smell test" for an original 13k car at this point.  Then there's the incorrect resto details.  What's the RPO for a body color matching 'vert top frame?       
219  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: leaf springs on: October 19, 2011, 01:38:25 PM
Saw these at HBC, others probably carry them as well.  I've no idea on the "correctness":

What will bring up the value is having the factory original  drivetrain.  A non-original 327 isn't much different than having a non-original 350 in most peoples opinions.  An L30 version of the 327, if you had one, isn't much lower in performance than the 350.  Aside from that, the previous owner was probably just looking at ease of replacement when he went with a 327 over say a big block.  Being sold in Canada isn't as big a value factor as having documentation, which happens to be more readily available on Canadian than most of the US sold cars still around, due to their records requirements.  As you get into this, you'll see that Chevrolet wasn't big on keeping a lot of records, to include combinations of options on cars sold.   

You may want to post up your trim tag, P-O-P, any docs at some point, and look at trans and rear axle codes to see if original.  First step is to start reading all the info on this site, then post questions or use the forum search feature as you learn about things.  Knowing what your intentions are for the car will also help folks here give you advice.  BTW that white paint looks like butternut yellow, must be the lighting.

Also, if you end up searching for the original block etc, do not broadcast your full VIN as unfortunately there are shady characters with stamp sets, who will magically find (counterfeit) your original engine.

Must have been driven pretty hard if it was really on the road for only 4 to 5 years.  Note the "$10.00" on the RH exhaust manifold.
222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Rally wheel valve stem length on: September 29, 2011, 02:58:40 PM
Anyone know the correct length - either overall or protruding from the rim to cap - for rally wheel valve stems?  Specifically 67 DG 14x6 wheels.  I believe they were Dill 627s, but seems like there are various lengths for this number.  Thanks. 
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Engine Hold down cable on: September 07, 2011, 05:07:18 PM
I believe it has also been mentioned on this site that for any judged event, points will be deducted for having the kit installed, even though it was a recall.  Has to be how it left the factory, pre-recall.  
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Engine Hold down cable on: September 05, 2011, 09:28:25 PM
Engine lift stop cable, also sometimes referred to as a stop lift kit.  They were recently discussed over at the TC site, probably here as well if you search.

Maybe try Grainger or McMaster Carr for suitable tubing.  McMaster usually has good descriptions of the material and strength.  If not showing the car, you could just add a small length of braided sleeve or spring like you see used on some hoses for protection.
