Mine are directly below the cowl tag - the "P" and "B" are almost gone, but the "T" is still visible.

The body broadcast IS the build sheet.

Only Norwood cars had them; my original 02D car has them on the driver's side.

The only usages I show for the 1112000 are for '70 402/350hp automatic and '70 402/375hp manual.

If you go to the top of the page and navigate through the boxes, you'll find more Camaro restoration information here than you'll find anywhere else, without having to ask questions and wait for answers; it's all here.  Smiley

Those are 15x7 70's Monte Carlo rally wheels, also used on some full-size station wagons.

There aren't any temp sensors in the engine block - only in the cylinder head or intake manifold. You need to drain enough coolant to get the level below that of the sensor before removing the sensor or you'll have a real mess to clean up.
3743  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 Question on: August 29, 2006, 12:31:16 PM
On other more sure way to see if the "Z28" is real and if it has not been totally restored, is to look for paint pin letters on the rear bulk head sheet metal, behind the back seat and under the card board panel and rear package tray that seals the trunk area from the interior. Many RS Z28's will be marked "X3" for the X33 option code and standard non-RS Z28's will be marked with "X7" for the "X77" base Z28 model. This is a though one to check out without taking the car apart and potentially upsetting the owner. If the car has been totally restored, pictures of these markings may be available to see.

The "X3" (X33) and "X7" (X77) don't relate to RS or non-RS; they relate to the presence/absence of the exterior Z21 Style Trim Group - X33 cars had it, X77 cars didn't.

Many parts listed by Service were "functional replacements" or "functional equivalents" which would service the application adequately, but were not the same in appearance as the original production part; conversely, many Service parts were the original production parts, but carried a different part number in the parts book because they came in a box with an instruction sheet and/or attaching parts, thus requiring a different part number for the "unit" that was comprised of several parts. You have to know what you're looking for and understand that the Service part isn't necessarily the same as the production part.

  I was of the impression the firewall pad went between the heater box and the firewall and thats what sealed the area you place the caulk in pic# 4 ?

That's correct - the dash mat went on first, and served as the seal between the front of the heater box and the inside of the firewall.
3746  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Question 386 block on: August 21, 2006, 09:40:25 AM
I get confused myself about the various combinations of frame brackets and mounts for different small-block engines, and can never remember it - I usually wait for William to chime in and explain it. I don't know why they're different, unless it has something to do with clearance to the front stabilizer bar with 7" vs. 8" balancers.

The extra six main cap bolt holes in 4-bolt blocks were drilled and tapped in the main block machining transfer line, but those six holes were done in a separate station in the line; there wasn't room for the six 4-bolt tool-head spindles next to the 2-bolt hole spindles. The 4-bolt blocks were easily detected after that station by automatic probes in subsequent stations - no manual intervention was required. There was no difference at all in the block casting between 4-bolt and 2-bolt blocks - some got ten main cap holes drilled/tapped, some got sixteen.

Oops - missed the "RS" item in the first post.  Undecided

Only an SS would have had a black standard grille center section - see:

That's why it's important to have real original unrestored/unmolested cars to examine and use as educational properties when developing a judging standard, which is why NCRS has the "Star/Bowtie" judging category just for that kind of car. Star/Bowtie judging is done solely based on absolute originality, with no concern whatever for condition; Bloomington Gold has a similar category called "Survivor" judging. The judging standard for restored cars (NCRS Flight Judging) has been developed over the last 30 years based on observations of known-original cars as well as with Chevrolet Engineering documentation and an incredible amount of research at the part number level, and the 100 page-plus judging guides for each year car are revised every couple of years based on continuing observation and research by 15,000 members - we continue to learn as we go along.
