That's why I was hoping someone with a P&A that covers those years would jump in...
So, Steve, are you verifying that there was no other cap "listed" from 5690846 to 7803820?
In other words, what p/n(s) covered 69 cap(s)?
If 5690846 changed from metal to plastic in 69 at any time, would that have been reflected in the p/n?

The P&A isn't always a reliable source for production parts usage; service parts were frequently released/listed that would "Service" the application functionally, with no concern for whether or not they "looked" the same, depending on inventory levels and usage rates.

My 02D '69 (VIN 606402) has the one-piece kickpads.

The number molded into the back of the shroud is the casting number - it's the same on all of them - they just changed the color of the plastic when they molded the different colors (each of which had their own finished PART number, which doesn't appear anywhere on the part).

Exactly the same cap and wording as my 02D '69 - as in the photo above, it says "Use Approved Fluid", not "Use Proper Fluid".

I'd go with the 3.55 also - you'll have all the tire smoke you can handle in 1st and 2nd, and the equivalent of a 2.41 axle on the highway in 5th.  Smiley

None of the factory-installed Tremecs (except the T56 in the Viper) will survive behind a 500hp motor; you'll need a T56 or a TKO600 like Keisler Engineering offers.

By the way, several thousand bricks WERE saved during the demolition, and given to the National Corvette Museum; they're sold by the Museum, numbered, and can be personalized; photo below of one I had made up and presented to one of my NCRS chapter members to recognize his contributions and participation last year.  Smiley

John: You may recall the sister facility about 1/4 mile north of the old V-8 plant was the birthplace of the early build '53 Corvettes.  It was demolished within the last several years as well.   Not even a brick was saved.  No plaque...nothing.   Sad....

That's the facility I was talking about - began as the Customer Delivery Building for the Flint Assembly Plant, was converted as the mini-assembly plant for the 300 '53 Corvettes, then became the Chevrolet Pilot Line, then the GM Assembly Research Center, then the GM Quality Center, then became a warehouse in recent years, and was bulldozed in 2004. I shot the photo below during the SACC (Solid Axle Corvette Club) Corvette 50th anniversary in June, 2003, with about 40 53's and twelve of the original '53 Corvette workers (in red shirts) that we rounded up in the Flint area as our special guests for the '53 Corvette 50th "Birthday Party" celebration. The plant is in the background, with the ramp to the roof parking lot.  Smiley

3729  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 302 head bolts on: May 16, 2006, 11:35:42 AM
Bolts with a "ring" marking are typical.
3730  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Valve covers for 68 z28 on: May 16, 2006, 11:27:26 AM
It should have chromed stamped steel valve covers.
3731  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Power steer pump cap on: May 15, 2006, 12:28:45 PM
I should have been more specific - my '69 cap is black plastic with no inner line as you describe; just meant I've never seen an unpainted metal cap.  Smiley
3732  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 302 head bolts on: May 15, 2006, 12:25:06 PM
There's nothing unique or special about 302 head bolts - they used the same bolts as any other small-block; unless you're looking for original headmarks, all the usual vendors have them (Jeg's, Summit, ARP, etc.).
3733  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Power steer pump cap on: May 15, 2006, 12:19:42 PM
My '67 Corvette and '69 Camaro PS caps are both painted - have never seen an UN-painted 60's PS cap.  Smiley
3734  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Muncie codes on: May 12, 2006, 12:37:42 PM
I have to look into that further; I've seen many more "CE" blocks where the first digit after the "CE" is later (higher number) than the model year of the car they went into than those where that digit matches the car's model year.  Smiley
3735  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Water pump cast date on: May 11, 2006, 02:50:18 PM
That would fly with no problem in NCRS Corvette judging - don't know what the Camaro judging standard is, however.
