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.

Does anybody have any comments/experience on the" breakerless ignition convertion" that Rick's sells (ep-714)?
keep your original ditributor without the breakers.

That's the "Breakerless SE" conversion manufactured by M&H Fabricators; lots of Corvette guys use it, as it only uses one black wire to the coil and thus appears stock during judging. Haven't heard of any problems with it from the Corvette users.

Which lights were monitored by the rear pod, seems the two outer red lens fibers are for the tail/stop lights, not sure about the center one?

See my post above - only the outer bulb was monitored.
3784  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Engine casting date vs build date on: May 07, 2006, 12:13:14 PM
Yes, I've seen a couple, and NCRS has documented several over the years. Flint blocks were cast in Saginaw, and it was possible for a block to be cast early in the 1st shift and show up at Flint Engine on 2nd shift for machining and assembly. Would also have been possible at Tonawanda, as the foundry was right next door to the engine plant, on the same site.

The "norm" was more like 2-3 days to a week, but it was "possible".

There were MANY different configurations of the RC-15 cap in production and service, and there are at least four different reproductions on the market; there's an excellent research article on the history of the RC-15 cap in the Winter, 2006 issue of the NCRS "Corvette Restorer" magazine.  Smiley

Yup, .035" gap.

Housings on both front fenders and in the lower center of the rear window - headlights and park/turn lamps were monitored in the front, and outboard taillamps and license light were monitored in the rear.

I run AC R45S plugs in all my small-blocks, with and without factory domed pistons; good all-around plug for normal driving, no fouling in my '69 Z/28, which would foul 44's occasionally around town. Autolite 86's also work well for the same normal operation.
3790  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 396 hood ornaments and side marker bezel on: May 03, 2006, 10:22:10 AM
Original '69 side marker lamp bezels had no paint, and no groove; they were all chrome, with a raised rib around the lens opening in the bezel.

Hi, was the original radiator cap for 68 396 350hp the short eared or long eared type?
Were they 15 psi?
Any pics appreciated

The caps with the short ears are later GM service replacements.

After you hit the "quote" button and the quoted message text shows up in the reply box, just highlight the text you don't want to appear in your reply and hit "delete"; that way you don't have to have the entire message appear in your reply - only the part you want to respond to.  Smiley
3793  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 Camaro ignition and trunk keys on: May 02, 2006, 11:13:20 AM
There is a company called that is advertises nos keys. I bought some nos keys for my 69 camaro, he can also stamp the key codes on the knock outs like the how the keys would have came from the factory when the car was new.

Hey good stuff, but none of their links [buttons] lead anywhere??? or do you have to sign up to even browse the site?? Tried sending an email to them via their web mail and it was returned to me as undeliverable??

Joey's pretty busy, and not much for e-mails - use the phone and call him. His work is pricey, but perfect; his keys pass NCRS judging every time.

Here's a photo of the original cap on the left rear shock stud on my 02D '69Z; I assume it's there as a luggage protector.
3795  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: X code on rear seat brace on: May 01, 2006, 01:57:46 PM
Assuming it's a Norwood car, in many cases the X-code was written on that brace in abbreviated form (X3, X7, etc.), even before the X-codes appeared on the cowl tag.
