Worth noting for the PTB discussion, that JohnZ's Assembly Process article describes the inspection marks as "ink stamps".
(My apologies if this has already been noted elsewhere in this thread, but I didn't spot it if it is).

That is correct Tim as Chick pointed out. I am going to try the same method Chick used as his stamps looked great IMO.

They were purchased from ricks years ago...


Thanks James I ordered some stamps from HBC and they look just like the ones you and Chick used.

very nice work

Wow. Perhaps this is a crazy question, but you said you bought a rust free car. Was it advertised as such. If so I would think that you would have a case on your hands.
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Subframe markings? on: January 19, 2014, 10:56:12 PM
that appears to be an April 11 '69 date stamp..  Seem right for your 04C car too.   
The subframe PN  is probably located under the bumper bracket (and probably is still in decent condition based on that stamp).  If you ever expose it, please take a photo of the PN and post it.. Smiley

Apparently the subframes (and frames of other Chevrolets of that era) were marked with the PN, mfg, and date at that location..   at the rear of the bumper bracket on the Left Hand frame horn (outer side)...


What does that stamp mean, other than indicating the date. I have never seen it before on a subframe.

Thanks Gary. Interesting to see that for the first time. My car had undercoating. Had I known at the time I may have taken my time to look for it before stripping the paint.

I found in the junk yard both "M" and "C" head marks. The 68 Impala had "CS" head marks. The shouldered fasteners holding the lifting hooks did not have washers per your note 69Z28freak. The other fasteners on the intake are washerless too, right?

That is correct. No washers used on any bolts on the intake. That is why the lift brackets have the shouldered, built in washers for extra lifting support.

Gary;
Don't want to lead you astray here, just remembered some additional info. The Post 25 fitting 16001 is a larger nut style 3/8" and not the same as original. The only place I could find the original 5/16" nut style shown on post 26 was from: Part number 0650  111200 B.E. Atlas (773) 283-2550 in a pack of 5. Didn't want you to be disappointed when you get the new one, cause it looks different, it will work fine its just not the same as the original.

Todd


Hey Todd sorry for the Hi-Jack but I just noticed that we have the same cam. I have not installed my motor yet, but I am wondering how you like the cam?

Thanks

Also note that the un-shouldered bolts should not have washers.

You will need all of these parts if you want to have the correct factory set up.



Did you read all of this thread?

As per Cooks post with the link the one on the left is correct. The one on the right is a repop.

12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Intake manifold bolts - 69z28 on: January 18, 2014, 10:23:04 PM
As far as I know the bolt head marking should be an "M".
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Intake manifold bolts - 69z28 on: January 18, 2014, 10:17:50 PM
As far as I know the intake bolts were un-shouldered except for the bolts on the engine lift brackets. They should be shouldered.

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: speedo clips and location on: January 10, 2014, 11:22:43 PM
Thanks for confirming, Chick. The 69 AIM calls up 'cement' to be applied to clip and hole for the 2 locations on the firewall, but nothing for the lower clip down by the transmission - seems like that'd be the most likely place for water to get in and be retained, so I'm going to do what you did and seal it up!

X2 on sealing up. Great idea. You don't want water getting inside a freshly done car.
