<< Block numbers above oil filter, embossed in block.   944  657  78N    What are these?? >>

Those are foundry pattern numbers - in case there was a problem with the casting, they knew which pattern made the mold the block was cast from.

Can a distributor Vacuum unit be repaired/restored?

Yes, but it won't be cheap - try Don Baker,

Should be X3

He's talking about the driver's side rear, not the passenger side rear where the "X" code derivatives are found.

<< They are located to left side of the rear seat if you were sitting in the back seat. >>

Hi everyone, hoping you can ID this for me. I've had this for about 8 years.  Overall length is 31 5/8, that's threaded top to spline bottom.  Chrome hazard button with stud, going into insert in column, D-shaped hole. Orange sticker on it looks like last 4 numbers are 9343.  Thanks, Randy

If you'll use the "macro" feature on your camera (little flower symbol), your close-up photos will be in focus; can't tell much when they're fuzzy.

Would this car have come with the K19 smog system? Sold new in GA.

Nope - only if it was delivered new in California.

Whatever the blow up was, it sure changed things.

Don went through a VERY drawn-out and difficult divorce, and had to start over from scratch.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original Black Primer Underside of Body 69 Z/28's on: June 23, 2014, 11:45:29 AM
The black is a phosphate coating, any other colors, greys, blacks reds etc are primers sprayed on in the paint booths

Mark.   That's the first time I've heard phosphate mentioned for that..  Can you elaborate?   was the entire body subjected to a phosphating process?  or just some panels (like the floor) prior to assembly of the panels into the body? or?    Any details you can provide based on fact, or conjecture based on evidences would be greatly appreciated.

The phosphate systems (both of them - Fisher's and Chevrolet's) are covered in some detail in the "First Generation Camaro Assembly Process" paper on this site, at:

Here's an excerpt - go to the paper to read the details:

<<Fisher Body - Paint Shop Operations
The Paint Shop is broken down into phosphate, prime, sealing, and color departments; the body was suspended from an overhead conveyor with hooks at the firewall and at the ends of the rear frame rails through the phosphate system, and was transferred to a steel carrying truck before the prime system that carried it through the rest of the Paint Shop and through the Trim Shop.
Phosphate System: The raw body shell passed through a seven-stage phosphate system, where it went through a series of enclosed high-pressure hot spray stages where it was washed to remove all the oils and debris from stamping, welding, brazing, soldering, and grinding operations, then the body was coated with a hot iron phosphate solution which "etched" the metal and provided "teeth" for paint adhesion. The final stage was a de-ionized hot water rinse and blow-off, followed by a drying oven on the way to the prime booth.>>

44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Any Chicago area members heard of Zepelak Chevrolet Inc. in Elmhurst on: June 23, 2014, 11:17:16 AM
Per a friend who used to live in that area years ago, Zepelak Chevrolet was in Elmhurst until around '66 or '67, maybe a bit later, then changed to Celozzi-Ettleson Chevrolet; pretty sure it's gone now.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Water Pumps 3782608 and 3782609 casting dates?? on: June 20, 2014, 02:40:17 PM
So V1207MU would use ton 308 with date code maybe around L?6

That's a Flint engine, so it needs a Saginaw-cast water pump, late November to very early December.
