I would expect the folks at Chevrolet did a whole lot of market research before deciding on the new model name, plus they may have other plans for Z28 of which we are unaware.  You have to remember they are marketing to the most likely buyer group.  I was told at a dealership this past weekend that most of their Corvettes are bought by 50-60 year olds, 30-40 year olds buy most of the Camaros.

I would also add that you need to do your homework first, before ordering from any vendor.  Do not assume what year they list a part for is 100% correct.  I've seen errors on just about every vendor's site.  For example, many will have parts listed for 67 thru 69, when in fact the part is only correct for 68-69 or just 69.  Seems if an exact part isn't available they rather sell you something close but not technically correct or something that may not have even been used on a certain year.  An assembly manual can help you a lot.  Also ask if in doubt, there's a wealth of knowledge in the members of this site.

I think it identifies a bad radiator and possibly prone to a mini explosion, so being a bomb expert I will go ahead and come down and take it from your hands, no thanks is needed, just doing my job   Cool

Funny thing is, I always assumed this was an incorrect radiator ever since I bought the car back in 85, probably because it had the wrong a/c condensor.  Yeah, it's been one of those 25+ year projects.  I removed it last summer prepping for an engine swap and didn't really look at it until last month.  It was like Christmas in March.
215  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Harrison radiator small tag on: April 06, 2011, 09:03:32 AM
It's too small for the radiator tag, about half the width of that.  Plus the original UK is still on the other tank where it belongs.  And it seems too wide for a hose clip, plus it doesn't show any signs of ever having any ears for the hose that could have later broken off.  I was thinking it might be a Harrison plant designation if they had several facilities.

Anyone know what the small "BG" tag is on this UK 23 inch 3-row?  It is on the driver side IH tank, so not the remnants of an overflow hose clip.  Radiator is believed to be original to a 67 LOS 11B, L48 with a/c.  Also, does the rail look correct for 67?  Looks like a cross between the 68 and 69 rails shown in the OEM cooling system report section.

Brought a grin to my face as well.  That 69 looks like the rear axle came off during the tow home, and they kept on going.  Makes me want to go search for the photos of my car when I first got it.

It should all be explained here, makes more sense if you read through it on your own:

The 12 37 on the ring gear is the ratio - 37/12=3.08
219  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Temperature Sender For 67? on: March 25, 2011, 11:21:23 PM
This type, part number is 1513321 - see U17 A1 of the 67 AIM.  The harness clip pushes onto the top of the bayonet from the side:

For comparison, I believe this is the sending unit for cars w/o gauges, and used the same harness and clip:

You may find some useful information here, or maybe contact the author with any question.  Click on topics at the right side of the home page:

Looking at the AIM under UPC N40, it appears the older banjo style pump was only used on the L6 in 69.  Looks like SBC V8s used pump 7805656 which was the newer style with the tank crimped to the body or what you call a big filler neck.  Apparently the 396 used a different pump as it shows a different p/n in the AIM.  You will also need a flex coupling/rag joint and possibly a different Pitman arm, proper pulleys for the pump, hoses, also there are some retainers to secure the hoses which should be shown in the AIM.  I have no idea on the 2.5 or 3.5 turn gearbox, someone with more knowledge may chime in.  If you've a numbers car there are date codes on the pumps, gearbox body and aluminum top cover.

I dug out my factory originals today, they were not chromed plastic.  The car has RPOs Z23 and Z87.
222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: underhood wire harness extension on: March 15, 2011, 12:59:35 PM
Checked my 11B LOS w/ PB and all original wiring today and it has the extension.  There's an additional tan brake switch wire on the extension.  I always thought this was a "normal" harness setup.

I think it appeared in a few Scooby Doo episodes
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1967 A/C Bezels on: March 12, 2011, 06:19:14 PM
In JohnZ's research report on first gen assembly process, under Chevrolet Assembly - Paint Shop Operations Details / Low Bake Paint it mentions how small parts were received, painted, and moved to trim line etc.  I believe the bezels are all painted dash color, and suspect they were part of this process.  The part numbers shown in the AIM, without any special finish notes, may just be to differentiate left from right and not an indicator of a finished part from the supplier.

Here's a site that shows lamp pics, you just have to muddle thru the household and Christmas tree lamps or better yet use the search box near top right.

http://www.bulbtown.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=1034a

Nothing came up for an 8646, I've never heard of that one.  I think amber lamps were only used when you had a directional/parking light with a clear or white lens, possible also the early front side markers if lens was clear.
