What is the deal with the Vacuum can in the L88 pic. ?  There is no port.

That vacuum can operates the wiper door that covers the windshield wipers and linkage on '68-'72 Corvettes.

smog pump or AIR system not working properly, etc.?   It was a hot day, in the low to mid 90's.  None of my other cars, or truck, put out anywhere near the heat that my '69 Z does.  And yet the temp gauge still reads fine; could the temp gauge be inaccurate?

If your A.I.R. system is still functional and the rubber diaphragm in the diverter valve has failed (and almost all have failed), the valve defaults to the open position, which blows air into the exhaust manifolds all the time, under all conditions. That will cause hotter exhaust manifolds, without any affect on coolant temperature.

Rule #1 when diagnosing a potential cooling issue is to make sure you really have a problem before you start throwing parts and money at it; verify your temp gauge accuracy with an I.R. gun before you do anything else, as noted in the cooling article I posted a link to earlier.

Tried all the places I could think of including Ebay and no luck yet.Must be a rarity.

It's more than a rarity - it never existed as a production item.

John Z has a good article on cooling systems in this site.

I thought there was a darker N34 wheel used till approx 10/68? Almost a Walnut colour?
My N34 appears much darker than John Z,s, I wonder if there was production run differences?

That's correct - the first 3 months of production, the N34 wheel was "walnut", then in late November it changed to the lighter "rosewood" color, as noted here:

They must have been trained by the same separatists who invented the anglo-french sign police.  :-(

<< Block numbers above oil filter, embossed in block.   944  657  78N    What are these?? >>

Those are foundry pattern numbers - in case there was a problem with the casting, they knew which pattern made the mold the block was cast from.

Can a distributor Vacuum unit be repaired/restored?

Yes, but it won't be cheap - try Don Baker, donbaker@indianvalley.com
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Rear seat bulkhead #8 and #1 yellow chalk marks on 69 camaro on: July 09, 2014, 10:28:12 AM
Should be X3

He's talking about the driver's side rear, not the passenger side rear where the "X" code derivatives are found.

<< They are located to left side of the rear seat if you were sitting in the back seat. >>

<< Lets see some Dec 68 or Jan & Feb 69 cars with original lids. >>

Here's my original/untouched 02D 69Z with factory D80; it was shipped on February 28, 1969.  Smiley

Hi everyone, hoping you can ID this for me. I've had this for about 8 years.  Overall length is 31 5/8, that's threaded top to spline bottom.  Chrome hazard button with stud, going into insert in column, D-shaped hole. Orange sticker on it looks like last 4 numbers are 9343.  Thanks, Randy

If you'll use the "macro" feature on your camera (little flower symbol), your close-up photos will be in focus; can't tell much when they're fuzzy.

Would this car have come with the K19 smog system? Sold new in GA.

Nope - only if it was delivered new in California.
