Engine assembly date (stamp pad date) typically precedes car final assembly date by 2-6 weeks, although there are many exceptions; the block casting date must (obviously) precede the pad stamp date.
3857  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Camaro Z/28 front sway bar and power steering bracket on: April 04, 2006, 12:42:38 PM
That's not a factory sway bar - all '69 Camaros used an 11/16" bar (except for the 13/16" bar on COPO 9737's); the end of the factory bar was nowhere near the upper ball joint (see photo below). The rear power steering pump bracket goes on top of the motormount, not between the mount and the block, as shown in the Assembly Manual.

The fan clutch code is only shown on the Chassis Broadcast Copy.

Ed, I don't have the part number or broadcast code info for 68's; I just know that both the Eaton and Schweitzer clutches were released as optional usages across all car lines in the 60's, as neither supplier could supply the total volume requirements.

Hey John,

I wouldn't have believed it if you didn't post it.  BTW. did Jerry tell you the bolt was the wrong color?   Roll Eyes

Steve

Nope Smiley

Sounds like a standard car with some RS badging and Z28 stripes; tell us more when you get it home.

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.

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.
3865  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.
3870  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.
