The engine source, assembly date, and identifying suffix code is stamped on a machined pad on the front of the block immediately below the front of the passenger side cylinder head; the "MO" suffix will be the last two characters of the stamping, which will look like "V0306MO".

Hard to tell without looking at it - I'm sure Jerry can fix you up.

No Camaros were made in Canada - all of them sold in North America were made at Norwood or Van Nuys.

Those are X33 items (from the Z21 Style Trim Group) that someone has added.

Most professional Q-Jet rebuilders can repair the fuel inlet threads with a special Helicoil; DON'T use the parts store repair kit that's self-threading - that'll simply destroy the casting. Not a good idea to put a filter upstream of the pump - that adds restriction to what is already a weak vacuum on the "pull" side of the fuel pump.

Does the distributor have vacuum advance? If so, initial timing is set with it disconnected and plugged. If you don't hear any valvetrain sounds, the valves aren't lashed correctly - if you drive it like that, you'll burn the valves. Click on the box at the top of the page labeled "CRG Reports" and go to the Research Report on adjusting valves with the "30-30" cam. Most 302's only pull about 9"-10" Hg. vacuum at a 900 rpm idle - it's characteristic of that cam.

Thanks Kurt. I didn't know they were not for use on the road. Any comments on having used originals rebuilt by Apple Hydraulics?

Never heard of anyone rebulding monotube shocks, but I know Apple rebuilds the old lever-arm Armstrong and Houdialle shocks - different animals.

I know it was only used in Corvettes in 1967 - I'm out of town this week and don't have my references handy for any other usages.

'67 was small-journal, '68-'69 were large-journal.  Smiley
3835  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: ROUND PROPORTIONING VALVE/FRONT BRAKE BLEEDING 69 Z28 on: January 24, 2006, 11:58:45 AM
I haven't had a bleed issue with mine, but I know the valve isn't working; on the first few brake applications when taking the car out, even with light pedal pressure, the car "stands on its nose" instantly, so it's getting front brakes first big-time before the rears come into play. I either need to replace the valve or rebuild it before spring comes, so I'd be interested in how the rebuild kit works out.  Smiley

Chuck, you have mail.  Smiley

Brochure photos were taken well ahead of production launch, and used all manner of cars - shined-up prototypes and development cars, Pilot cars, auto show cars, and anything that was available at the time, and many of the photos were airbrushed/modified (or not) to represent what was thought at the time to be the production configuration, which frequently changed. I wouldn't put a lot of faith in early brochure photos as an indicator of what was actually built later.

The gauge surround bezel is black regardless of interior color.

It probably got a 327 as a replacement because they were very common, inexpensive, and plentiful (millions of them were made). "Real" '68 302's are difficult to find, although thousands have been "created"; there's nothing special about the block, but the 3"-stroke large-journal cranks are hard to find.

Nope, it wasn't available from the factory - only as a dealer-installed accessory.
