1  Orphans - documentation or VIN-stamped drivetrains - in search of the original cars / 1967 - Orphans / Re: 7L159893 - L78 short block on: August 17, 2012, 10:05:11 AM
Thank you, Ed,
My erred understanding was that all California-built 67 L78 Camaros had smog and thus got the MR-coded engines. 
Are there any figures relating to how many total 67 L78 (4K) Camaros were built at Van Nuys, and what the breakdown between MR and MQ coded cars was? 
From DMV records, it appears that my car was first sold to a consumer through a Chevrolet dealer in Reno, NV, which makes me wonder why it was K19 equipped given that it wasn't sold in California.  I suppose it is possible that it may have been originally produced to be sold at a dealer in CA, but dealer transferred to Reno?  I have checked CA DMV records and there is nothing that I have been able to find showing the car in their records.  Sadly, the dealer in Reno is long gone.

Shouldn't all LOS L78 engines be coded MR for smog?  I thought all LOS-built 67 Camaros were built with smog (RPO K19), and should thus be coded MR on the block?  My 67 L78 LOS-built car is an earlier VIN than the one posted and has block code MR and had smog (K19 on UOIT).

I am trying to find the earliest block pad date code for Van Nuys-built 67 Camaro L78 (Engine code MR)

I have a Van Nuys-built '67 Camaro that DMV records show was originally delivered to a Chevy dealership in Reno, Nevada sometime in latter half of 1967.
I'm wondering if anyone might know the name of the dealership.  Champion Chevrolet is currently in Reno, but they opened in the late 1980's.
 
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 67 Manual Disc Master Cylinder Rebuild on: February 24, 2011, 03:22:18 AM
The Master Cylinder in my '67 SS/RS Camaro has failed.   Rust in the bore caused the piston to no longer seal in the cylinder.
A local mechanic tried to hone it, but the rust scoring is too deep to clean up such that a rebuilt piston/seals will fix the problem.
Looks like I need someone to sleeve it.  Question is, who?  Anyone know someone that can do this right?  I've found a few places online (Karp's(CA) and Apple Hydraulics(NY)), but would appreciate info. from someone who has worked with a vendor before and had good work done.  Brakes are too important to have someone do a sub-standard job.  Some places advertise brass sleeves, with others using stainless steel.  Which is better?

Casting number is 5459467, 1" bore, with application code AD.
