3811  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Proper plating for hardware - J52 balance valve bracket & bolt @ '69 SS on: April 01, 2006, 01:19:28 PM
Here's a photo of the bracket and bolt - I've had the booster and valve bracket restored by Jerry MacNeish, but the attaching bolt is the untouched original.
3812  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '68 396 fan clutch, ...correct PN(s)?? photos? on: April 01, 2006, 01:11:11 PM
The coil-type unit in the top group of photos is the Eaton clutch, and the one in the lower group of photos is the plate-type Schweitzer clutch; although their part numbers were different, both were used interchangeably in all Chevrolet applications, depending on which one happened to be stocked on the line at the time. I don't have a '68 A.I.M., but you'll see the interchangeable usage in the '69 A.I.M.; both part numbers are shown, with the second part number "opt." (optional usage); both of them were calibrated the same way, met Engineering specifications for that application, and either one is "correct".

I've never seen one on a car - have only seen a photo of one alleged to be a service TSB part.
3814  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Engine pad....painted or not on: March 31, 2006, 01:26:42 PM
Engine stamp pads weren't painted - they had a piece of masking tape on them when they went through the paint booth.

If it has a console, it also gets the wood trim by the wiper switch and on the radio side. Three things triggered those two wood trim pieces - Z23, D55 console, or Z87 deluxe interior.

Mine's original, and it's dark phosphate with a captured toothed washer.

Try Top Hat John (John Jendza), www.tophatjohn.com - he does most of the hot-rod, custom, classic, and exotic appraisals in the metro area, and has for many years.

Now, does anyone know the correct plating for the base? I was going to have it silver cadmuim plated along with some other parts.

-Jeff

Silver cad or zinc is correct.
3819  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Cleaning "Hounds tooth" vinyl seats on: March 29, 2006, 10:25:19 AM
"Houndstooth" is cloth fabric - do you mean the "Comfortweave" vinyl? On vinyl, I use "Vinylex", from the folks that make "Lexol" leather cleaner and conditioner, with a soft-bristle brush; does a great job on my Corvette white vinyl seats and door trim panels, and on the Deluxe Comfortweave vinyl seats in my '69Z.

The LJ-2 was going to use the same tri-power intake carbs and spacing as the 427 tri-power on the L-71; it's not clear that the shield was only for the LJ-2.

As far as I know, they were never factory-installed, but many were dealer-installed under TSB's for warranty complaints of fuel percolation and vapor lock.

Clear.  Smiley

10-bolt is 3-1/2 pints, 12-bolt is 4-1/2 pints.  Smiley
3824  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: vin stamp on cowl 1 higher than vin tag on: March 27, 2006, 10:51:27 AM
We've seen other examples of this before - virtually nobody in the plant paid any attention at all to the hidden VIN numbers other than the guy who stamped them, and they were covered up by the heater blower case and the cowl vent grille on the first pass of the Trim Line and never seen again. The only VIN that mattered in the plant was the one on top of the instrument panel, which had to match the VIN printed on the broadcast copy.
3825  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Cosmolene wrapped bumper on: March 27, 2006, 10:43:17 AM
The production-line VE3 bumpers came from the supplier already painted; can't remember if the service parts were just primed or topcoated, but they had a peel-off protective plastic coating on them.
