Don't have a photo, but it's a black plastic Caplug, installed from the engine side of the firewall.  Smiley

The one-piece Fel-Pro gasket is more likely to be leak-free, but you'll see the blue edge of it all the way around the pan. The stock 4-piece gaskets can also be leak-free with careful installation and attention to making sure the flange on the pan is dead flat, especially at the bolt holes. Your call.  Smiley

Everything except Muncie 4-speeds had the speedo cable hole outboard of the steering column, just below and inboard of the fuse block; Muncie 4-speeds had the cable hole inboard of the steering column, just below and slightly inboard of the wiper motor. The standard hole near the fuse block was in all cars, and had a plug installed in it on Muncie 4-speed cars. Photo below of the standard hole near the fuse block.  Smiley

Either natural or semi-gloss black is correct for the gas tank straps; not sure about Van Nuys cars, but Norwood cars generally had black dip-primed straps. My unmolested original 02D Norwood '69 has dip-primed black straps.  Smiley

It would have been possible for a 12B body to show up on the Chevrolet side of the plant as late as December 18th, so a December 15th axle isn't out of the question. 12B is the week when the raw body started in the Body Shop at Fisher Body, not when the car was produced at Chevrolet.  Smiley

If "C-7" is actually "07C" on your cowl tag, the body build date was the third week of July. Where did you find the "C-7"?
4012  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Camaro How many left. on: December 31, 2005, 10:48:05 AM
here is another funny response,but in reality its something that all of us that own 69 camaros should be concerned about. there will soon be more 69 convertables out there than gm made with the repop convertable bodys that are being reproduced and soon they will be selling the coupes. well its a topic that has me wondering will it make our real 69 camaros worth more or less? something to ponder now that they are repoping phonie camaro bodys now.maybe we should get a number of real 69 camaros before the fake ones or clones take over Grin

With the price of the reproduction body shells and the cost of all the parts to make them into cars, I wouldn't worry about too many of them appearing and diluting the '69 gene pool. Smiley

I'd call the axle paint semi-gloss; the pinion flange was masked with a thin cardboard tube to keep paint off the U-joint cap seating surfaces - every now and then we'd get an axle that still had the tube in place.  Smiley

When we hoisted the axle out of the shipping rack, the cables were crosswise horizontally across the axle, above the diff nose, and held together with a wire tie so they didn't dangle and get hung up in the rack locators; after setting the axle on the chassis carrier and installing the springs and cable guides, we cut the wire tie, routed the cables, and clipped them into the guides. The cables may have been hanging free when the assembly was painted while on the conveyor at the axle plant, then routed and wire-tied before the axle was transferred into the shipping rack.  Smiley

The rear axle assembly (housing, tubes, diff, rear cover, backing plates and drums and parking brake cables) was painted at the axle plant as a completed assembly just before it was placed in the shpping rack; the brake pipes and center block were installed later at the car assembly plants.

Arno, maybe someone more familiar with the detail of 68's can respond; I pretty much focus on 69's.
4017  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Battery Ground lead on: December 27, 2005, 11:39:19 AM
There should be a pre-pierced hole in the vertical wall of the fender reinforcement for that screw - it wasn't drilled at assembly.  Smiley
4018  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Original vented gas cap on: December 25, 2005, 12:58:43 PM
Yes, the "vented" cap has a pressure/vacuum valve in it, and if the tank hasn't reached the threshold for the valve, it will "hiss" when you remove the cap to refuel.  Smiley

Not positive on the Camaro, but the NCRS guide calls out the 1115270 for the '68-'70 Corvette 300 & 350hp engines with point ignition, and that's the number embossed on the coil itself.

Advancing the cam timing 4* to pick up some additional low-end torque has varying results, depending on the cam; this works quite well on the Chevy "151" (327/350hp hydraulic) cam, but the duration/overlap of the "30-30" Z/28 cam is so extreme, advancing it makes little difference in low-end torque. A far better solution is to swap it for the Chevy factory LT-1 solid-lifter cam; that cam will produce about a 20% increase in low-end torque over the "30-30", with almost no trade-off above 6000 rpm. The LT-1 cam is available from GM as a kit with lifters under GM P/N 12364054 for less than $150.00, and from Federal-Mogul/Speed-Pro as a kit with lifters under their #KC-1145R for a little less.  Smiley
