226  Orphans - documentation or VIN-stamped drivetrains - in search of the original cars / 1967 - Orphans / Re: 7L112167 - L48 engine on: July 19, 2011, 01:40:22 PM
Interesting partial VIN stamp on this block.  My MU block was cast and assembled two months before this one, and went in a car around 4500 units after this one, same assembly plant.  The chrome oil filler tube is also interesting.  If original it lends another data point for its use on L48s.  I believe there was another complete engine on eBay recently that appeared original and had the chrome tube.

Only 188 came from the factory with the RPO V75 traction compound dispenser, so probably not too many documented ones left as it sort of implies the car was bound for the Rust Belt, etc.  Every once in awhile you'll see cans of the compound listed on eBay.  They didn't keep records down to the exterior color and interior combination level.  Estimated 7% of 69s were Daytona Yellow, so something less than that for yellow on yellow combo.  It's all found in the research topics at the top of the home page.  Some of the ones you spotted in the past may not have been factory original.

1sweet67 - I sent you a message on this.  Look in your User Info block and click where it says you have messages.

Didn't the early 67 LOS cars have the four body numbers sequences running consecutively, depending on coupe or vert and then std or deluxe interior?  So it would be the 6082 of its particular group (coupe std or coupe deluxe since both verts types only got up to around 2000) thread?

Also go to the home page and look under "Numbers Decode", down near the very end.  Shows original date stamping and another pic of a hood left rear corner.  I've seen some stamps that are halfway off the edge, or lightly stamped so you may need to remove any built-up layers of paint to find it.

On a positive note, he didn't have an orange "CAUTION" sticker on the fan shroud Wink
233  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Stuff used for bulkhead connector on: June 06, 2011, 08:45:12 AM
I was recently working with a black waterproof sealant I got through McMaster Carr and thought it appeared similar.  Stuff took awhile (days) to dry though, and came in a standard size caulk gun tube.  I think it was one of the first two listed here, bought it years ago so not certain.  I was surprised it was still good after sitting that long.

There was a discussion on the TC site awhile ago:

235  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: No partial VIN on blocks on: May 24, 2011, 05:51:26 PM
The engine and trans partial VINs were stamped before the alternator was installed, so it was not a matter of having to go back and remove the alternator but more of a consideration of being able to read it once the alternator was mounted.  Norwood used the pad up to around December 68 and Van Nuys varied between the pad and oil filter area thoughout the model year.
236  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: caliper and booster resto where should I send ?? on: May 24, 2011, 05:20:54 PM
The calipers are fairly easy to rebuild if the bores are good.  Whichever vendor you choose, be sure to communicate all expectations in advance and keep a record of your agreement - i.e. no swap outs, grind-out of casting #s or stampings, no restamping, whether you want calipers stainless sleeved, etc.  If the booster is pitted you could lose some stamping detail during the process.  I'd talk to Jerry first, just be patient in reaching him.
237  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Head/Block/Intake/Exhaust casting on: May 13, 2011, 04:53:53 PM
The PE was used across multiple years so you also want to check the casting date on the rear of the carrier.  If you ever go inside it, the ring gear is also stamped.
238  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Head/Block/Intake/Exhaust casting on: May 13, 2011, 03:58:37 PM
Since it was decked you may as well check the entire pad, you never know what will show up.  Post up pics of the trim tag and rear axle stamp as they become available. 
239  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Powerglide stamping ID pic on: May 13, 2011, 03:51:54 PM
Your pan stamp looks like the 1966 p-glide format, pre Camaro.  The format was based on model year, not calendar year the trans was built.  But pans can easily be changed.  Go to the Drivetrain Decoding section on the main page here, and scroll all the way down to see an example of where a powerglide could have been stamped.  Not all got stamped in 67, but look around the entire leading edge of the bellhousing on both sides to include where it angles back, to see if any partial VIN stamps.  Not easily done while it's in the car.  Assuming it's not been altered, the absence of a partial VIN will only determine if 67 or earlier.  I believe there is also date information cast into the aluminum case, however I'm not sure of the detail level it gives you.

The engine build date stamp will obviously be a help if you can get it.  There won't be a VIN stamp on a 327, but check that area also.

Was your car assembled at Van Nuys?  My 11B RS/SS 350 was missing its original motor, but I did locate and buy the engine from another LOS 350 MU that was around 750 units ahead of mine, on that mixed model line, so around 2 days earlier.  This is the same 657 block casting as you have, and it too is a H66 casting date.  Don't have the pics in front of me but I believe my engine build date was around H196 and the heads were cast close to the block cast date.  So I'd say that at first glance your heads and intake are not date correct, but the block might be the "born with" based on the casting date and what I've observed.  The August engine in an 11B build is possible, although personally I'd just seen it in 350s.
