Clear.  Smiley

10-bolt is 3-1/2 pints, 12-bolt is 4-1/2 pints.  Smiley
3873  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.

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.
3875  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '68 396: Smog Diverter Valve "Broadcast code" question ?? on: March 26, 2006, 10:31:32 AM
This gets further clouded by the fact that most service parts were catalogued with different part numbers than the original production part, due to the way they were packaged; a service diverter valve in a box with a gasket would carry a different part number than the identical production-line part. Also, many parts were consolidated to reduce the number of parts required for service - where three or four different part numbers of valves were released for production usage for different engines, in service, frequently one valve was catalogued as a "functional replacement" for those usages. It didn't LOOK the same as the original production part, but functionally, it did the job as a replacement.

My 02D '69 has all its original tinted glass, including the windshield, and it's all dated December '68 and January '69.
3877  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Z/28 - was power steering an option? on: March 25, 2006, 11:25:35 AM
Yes, it was. About the only options not available on Z/28's were A/C and automatic transmissions.

The steering column also matches the interior color.
3879  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 041 / 041x heads 1969 350 on: March 23, 2006, 03:03:18 PM
A friend who has spent his entire career at the Saginaw foundry says the "X" is meaningless - just a foundry marker - on all small-block heads except the 461's, where the 461X had a 15cc larger intake port.
3880  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Camaro console and dash housing X77 on: March 23, 2006, 02:55:11 PM
With a green interior, the console should also be green - matches the carpet/seats/doors etc.
3881  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 12 BOLT DATE CODES on: March 23, 2006, 02:50:58 PM
The casting date only refers to the date the iron center section was poured at the foundry; the stamped date on the RH axle tube is the date the axle assembly was completed (tubes, brakes, diff, etc.). Generally, the axle assembly date will be within 1-6 weeks after the casting date, but there are exceptions. The only "rule" is that the stamped assembly date must be after the center section casting date.
3882  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Blue Paint Mark on Steering Column on: March 22, 2006, 12:51:40 PM
Probably from a random-sample inspection at Saginaw; my '69 is an untouched original, and doesn't have any blue marking on it.

Use the standard "Reply" button (not the "quick reply"), and use the "Additional Options" feature below the box you type in; that will upload the image from your computer and place it in your post; copy-and-paste won't work - the image has to be uploaded first, and that feature does it.
3884  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: SS350 Ignition Coil Code on: March 21, 2006, 11:24:18 AM
The A.I.M. shows the 270 coil assembly for all ZL2 usages; its bracket tilts it back out of the way of the air cleaner base.
3885  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Headlight switch knob removal and switch testing on: March 18, 2006, 12:30:28 PM
There's a small spring-loaded plunger protruding from the metal portion of the switch; hold that little plunger down and pull the knob, and the knob and shaft will come right out. There's a self-resetting thermal circuit breaker inside the switch that reacts to a dead short in the headlight circuit so you don't lose the headlights completely - it cycles them on and off instead (that's why there's no fuse for the headlights).
