Here's my original-paint 02D Norwood Z/28; the plenum area below the cowl vent grille was shot with Fathom Green over the white stripe paint; the green has flaked a bit in several areas, and if you look closely you can see white underneath it where it has flaked. The wiper linkage is gloss black, as you'd expect. Many Van Nuys cars show stripe color paint all the way forward to the top of the firewall.

Did the manufacturer offer any logic for eliminating the proportioning valve and replacing it with a union coupler? Sounds like someone doesn't understand the brake system.

That top seal served two purposes - it blocked airflow over the top of the radiator support, and with the rest of the seal package, forced all air coming through the grille to go through the radiator instead of around it. It also served to block recirculation of hot underhood air at idle over the top of the radiator support and back through the radiator, so the radiator (and A/C condenser) only saw outside ambient air, not hot underhood air.

Sounds like an "owner-inspired modification".  Smiley

It's hard to tell what detail specs were followed at Muncie for service replacement transmissions - don't have an answer for that one.

The upper instrument panel was painted in the second prime booth (before the body got any exterior color), baked, then masked off before exterior color was sprayed. See the "Fisher Paint Shop" section at:

Yup, "CT0" makes it a 5/50 warranty replacement service transmission, built in 1970.  Smiley

John -

I am assuming that the pciture you posted is from your original, unmolested Z-28.

If that is the case, I couldn't help but notice that in the picture, the axle housing lis natural (grey).  Seems like in previous posts, when this had been discussed, the consensus was that the differential and rear end assembly was painted a semi gloss black.  Am I remembering correctly?  I much prefer the natural phosphate grey look to the semi gloss black painted rear ends.

Can you offer any clarification?

Thanks

Richard

That's not my car in the photo - don't recall where I grabbed it, but the configuration of the spring leaves is correct. My rear axle was originally painted "chassis black", but virtually all of it is gone now - it was cheap black paint, and didn't last long.

All 69's had the stamped parking brake cable supports (see the Assembly Manual, UPC 5 , Sheet C2).

Is there any chance my 327 2 bbl car came with multi leafs from the factory?

The multi-leaf springs in the photo are aftermarket replacements; factory multi-leaf springs looked like this:

660 cases were used in '68-'69, and only 4 digits after the "P" says it's a bogus stamp for a 1970 usage; Muncies built after October, 1968 had a ratio designator as the sixth character.

and fan shroud caution decal.

There was never a fan shroud "caution" sticker - that's a Ford part that many of the vendors still think goes on Camaros, made "famous" by all the "restored" cars on eBay that have them. Sad

Photos post best at 640x480 - that way they'll fill the screen, but won't require scrolling.  Smiley
3718  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: EPDM coating on: September 17, 2006, 09:38:39 AM
The old coating for service sheet metal parts was dip-prime, the current coating is E-coat. I'm not familiar with the parts currently being sold over the GM parts counters.

Did all the 69 super sports have a return fuel line? Thanks Jim

The 350 (L-48) and the two hydraulic-lifter 396's (L-34/L-35) had return lines, the L-78 did not.

I think you'd have a hard sell with 041 heads on a '69 Z/28.
