3886  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Proper plating for hardware - J52 balance valve bracket & bolt @ '69 SS on: March 31, 2006, 01:22:42 PM
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
3893  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Original 10 bolt oil type on: March 27, 2006, 10:55:56 AM
10-bolt is 3-1/2 pints, 12-bolt is 4-1/2 pints.  Smiley
3894  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.
3896  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.
3897  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Tinted glass date codes-how early? on: March 26, 2006, 10:22:43 AM
My 02D '69 has all its original tinted glass, including the windshield, and it's all dated December '68 and January '69.
3898  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.
3900  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.
