3886  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.

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), - 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.


Silver cad or zinc is correct.

"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
3898  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.
3900  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.
