Both the Assembly Manual and the Chassis Service Manual show the kickdown linkage adjustment procedure, which is pretty simple; follow it to the letter and your upshift/downshift points should be in the ball park, assuming you don't have internal problems in the transmission or vacuum leaks between the intake manifold and the modulator.

All of the '67 Camaro Powerglide upshift and downshift points/speeds are shown on page 7-35 of the 1967 Chassis Service Manual; if you don't have one, you should get one - the car is 40 years old, and no place you take it for service will have one. All the vendors have them.

So would you be able to compare these dates with doors and hood to tell if the were replaced,or would they be pulled at random from there current stock at that time?

There wasn't a lot of inventory between the stamping plants and the assembly plants - racked stampings took up a lot of floorspace, and were racked so the parts didn't touch each other, so there were only about ten pieces per rack. There wouldn't be more than a couple of weeks' spread from one major panel to another on the same car.

I had it laminated in heavy plastic (at Kinko's) and put it on a clipboard over the hood latch so spectators can see it without having to walk around the car.

Those are "run numbers" from the Fisher Body stamping plants that supplied the panels; there's a letter that identifies the plant, followed by the week of production when the panel was stamped.

The 326 water pump was only used on applications that had an aluminum intake with a bypass fitting at the front; if it has the upper boss with a plug in the hole, it's a service replacement.

I don't recall the precise masking/spraying differences, but the front sheet metal at Van Nuys was hung on a separate carrier immediately ahead of the body; the Paint Shop there was combined (the old Chevy Paint Shop was abandoned when GMAD assumed control of the plant). Norwood was the traditional Fisher/Chevrolet arrangement where Fisher painted the body in their Paint Shop, and Chevrolet painted the front sheet metal in their own separate Paint Shop.

The links don't work - Photobucket says the images aren't there any more.  Huh

The note in the Assembly Manual actually refers to the stripe paint on the cowl vent grille itself, not to the cowl structure area below it; the cowl vent grille was a Fisher Body part, and they painted the Z stripes on it. The difference in underhood appearance (visible stripe color on the cowl out to the firewall) results from Van Nuys using a different masking and spraying process for the stripes than Norwood used.

L34 and L35 had two fuel lines, L78 had one.
3791  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: ZL1 Cowl Induction Hood on: February 12, 2006, 02:10:13 PM
The hood on the car in the article was an Engineering prototype/pre-production part, made from temporary tooling; an October '68 cover date meant the car was probably driven in June or July '68, before '69 production started.

'67-'68 production schedule was the same as '69; I wrote the CRG Research Report you mentioned. As I said earlier, that engine is OK for your car, assuming the pad stamp date also makes sense for it.
3793  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Numbers on: February 12, 2006, 02:01:16 PM
The F0123D is also a 283. Those aren't casting numbers, they're pad stamps; the casting numbers are raised, cast-in numbers behind the driver's side cylinder head on the bellhousing flange area, and the casting date code is on the opposite side.
3794  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 302 HEADS (2.02) on: February 12, 2006, 01:57:56 PM
They'd be the same for either application.
3795  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 engine block casting date L206 - Dec or Nov? on: February 11, 2006, 02:41:12 PM
"L" in a casting date is December; no reason that casting date wouldn't work for your car. Many Flint engines were machined/assembled within a day or two of the casting date, although a week or two is "typical". If you're taking the cowl tag date as the "build date", that's when the body shell was welded together at Fisher Body, not when the body finally got to Chevrolet and went through final assembly. If your cowl tag says 01A, the body could have been welded together as late as January 13th, and could have gotten its engine as late as January 18th or 19th.
