46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Factory Strike Timeline on: July 09, 2011, 07:19:34 PM
So my inquiry was leading towards another following question.

1. Did the Norwwod plant take up the extra work demands while this plant was down?

2. Did the Van Nuys plant do the same after the strike ended?

The reason I ask is I was wondering if any of the plants ever worked weekends during the 1969 year.

If so, what known plants, and or work group areas did weekend work?

Was this Strrke affecting ONLY the Van Nuys plant?

Question...

I apologize first for forgetting the strike timeline in 1969.

When did it begin, when did it end, and what plants and models were affected?

I thought that Eric J did not do Quadrajets anymore? Huh


I just looked at Eric's website. It is indeed posted there that he is still doing QuadraJets.

Just wanted to update and clarify this for him and everyone else interested.

Seems there "might" be a few out here in SoCal.

I am going to speak with a guy here in OC later this week or next.

I want to speak with him and see his work prior to my first carb with him.

I'll keep you posted.

I was reading a somewhere online that is suggesting that the throttle shafts were teflon coated?

Can there be more discussion here as to known knowledge for replatings, coloring, and correctness here regarding restoring QuadraJets?

I've been holding out on restoring my original carb because I wanted to get the job done right by the right shop the first time.

wanted to continue this thread...

Who else provides Quadrajet restorations out there?

There must be more people out there providing correct services for restorations.

I thought that Eric J did not do Quadrajets anymore? Huh

Yes.

OK, That was an answer I was looking to establish here.

So, we can agree at this point the Body is now VIN stamped and now has an Identification legally as a car.

When, after the Body Bank does this VIN stamping on the body, will this body receive the VIN tag on the dash panel ?
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: VIN #'s ; Order of Assignment & Locations on: December 28, 2010, 07:58:15 PM
OK, so the Chevrolet side receives that assembled body.

Once received, is the VIN the 1'st process to be assigned to that body shell before it starts the next assembly process?
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: VIN #'s ; Order of Assignment & Locations on: December 28, 2010, 01:43:26 AM
Would like to get some clarification on a few statements here:

I apologize for my ignorance here not knowing all of the terminology....
GMAD?

Next:
"At Norwood the body bank is the first station on the GM side of the plant.  It received the trimmed out rear tub of the car from the Fisher Body side of the plant"
Trimmed out?

Just a brief explanation is all that is necessary here for us to continue here...

Also, maybe a grammar update will be helpful.
Might be some abbreviated terms there above in your explanation...
THX
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: VIN #'s ; Order of Assignment & Locations on: December 27, 2010, 04:21:05 PM
May we pause here...

Could we place what the Chevrolet Body Bank is and that location?

Quoted by CRG:
"Body Bank: Receives the body shell from Fisher, assigns VIN and stamps the hidden VINs, separates them by major Chevrolet equipment and option content, and schedules them in "locked" sequence to the Chevrolet Trim Line; specs for each car are "broadcast" to subassembly and feeder lines throughout the plant."

Is the term "body bank" a location inside the production facity?




56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: VIN #'s ; Order of Assignment & Locations on: December 27, 2010, 10:31:16 AM
The VINs were assigned at the instant the body arrived at the GM side of the plant after Fisher finished with their work on the body and the hidden VINs on the body were stamped at this time.  The body then recieved a sequence number that was just a sequentioal number from 1 to 900 or so, it was rest to 0 every day at the start of the first shift.  This number is often found on the inside surface of the front fender extension panels so the right front end got on the right body.  The VIN plate was stamped and installed into the dash anel prior to the instrument cluster being installed.  Once the VIN number was assigned at the schedule bank, that was how GM identified the car

OK, so the moment Fisher had the opportunity to stamp the VIN into the body, then the body thus was that VIN?
Correct?
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: VIN #'s ; Order of Assignment & Locations on: December 27, 2010, 03:03:58 AM
OK, interesting read.

I will go over it a few times so that I have it all right in my head; as to the order and such.

So, would it be correct that the body was given the VIN stamping prior to the VIN tag on the dash panel?

IE : Body, Dash Panel, Engine/Transmission combo? In this order? As it is moving down the assembly process?

If so, what would be a fair amount of time during a run would the timeline be where these were all done?
IE : Body one day, dash panel the next day, eng/trans combo the following day?
Or did this this happen all within a few hours going down the assembly line?

 VIN #'s ; Order of Assignment & Locations

I would like to start this thread to discover & determine VIN information related to every car receiving one; IE : GM Chevrolet vehicles ( 1960-1981 )
In particular, I am searching this order for the 1967-1969 Camaros;  but not limited to these years and model.

A Vehicle Identification Number, commonly abbreviated to VIN (but sometimes incorrectly referred to as VIN number), is a unique serial number used by the automotive industry to identify individual motor vehicles. ( From WikiPedia-2010 )

Obviously we see GM used different regional locations to manufacture their cars.

I would to start out by determining when the :

1. VIN is established
2. In what order did the vehicle receive the VIN
3. What vehicles received which numbering systems
4. Who is responsible for the numbering
5. Locations where the VIN is established throughout the vehicle

Question :

Did the VIN tag on the Dash panel come first?

-OR-

Did the VIN # assigned to a Chevrolet vehicle : was it stamped on the Body prior to the VIN Tag on the dash panel?
