3736  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.

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

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.).

My '67 Corvette and '69 Camaro PS caps are both painted - have never seen an UN-painted 60's PS cap.  Smiley

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

That would fly with no problem in NCRS Corvette judging - don't know what the Camaro judging standard is, however.
3742  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Muncie codes on: May 11, 2006, 02:43:21 PM
The "8" after "CT" denotes the calendar year it was built, not model year (unlike the year code in the Muncie "P"-number, which refers to model year).  Smiley

The numbers I gave are for the '69; don't have a '68 A.I.M. handy.  Smiley

The plants put them on with a rubber hammer, and weren't concerned about chips that were hidden under the moldings (which is why I haven't touched the ones that are on my original '69).

The Assembly Manual will tell you that too - the license lamp for U46 was unique, P/N 916664, and the standard license lamp (UPC 12, Sheet C4) was P/N 910967.

Mike, I was at the Chevrolet Pilot Line (on Van Slyke just south of Atherton, next to Flint Assembly) from '66-'69; they bulldozed it two years ago.

The pipe in the photo is for a Corvette, which used steel or copper-plated steel; the same fitting design was used with metal or nylon tubing (the nylon tubing had a tiny brass insert in the end that kept it from collapsing when the fitting was tightened).  Paragon's site is www.corvette-paragon.com .

The routing, connections, and holes for the rear portion of the system are all shown in the Assembly Manual in section U46, Sheet A3 and A4.
3749  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: DZ harmonic balancer VS LT1 harmonic balancer on: May 08, 2006, 10:54:13 AM
The DZ balancer has the timing index line on the inertia ring about 10* counter-clockwise from a straight line extended from the hub keyway slot through the center of a pulley bolt hole, as the '69 DZ used the new long water pump accessory drive; '68 and earlier balancers had the timing index line directly on that line, as they used the earlier short water pump accessory drive system. An LT-1 balancer should also have the timing index line located in exactly the same place as the DZ balancer, as it also used the long water pump layout.

The fittings at the BB engine end shown in the photos above are aftermarket compression sleeve fittings. The original fitting that was screwed into the brass elbow and the mating fitting that went on the oil pipe are shown in the photo below; GM used their own proprietary fitting design that didn't use a separate compression sleeve - it used specially tapered male and female fittings that captured and sealed the pipe when the fitting was tightened. Paragon has the GM female fitting that screws into the elbow (their #34), and the matching GM male fitting that goes on the pipe is supplied with their oil line kits - they may sell the fittings separately.
