HMMMM - It's an odd thing (to me) that 250,000 Camaros were ordered and not one with MA6 in any engine?  Are you sure that the engine production statistics aren't homologated under the most common engine+trans ECL?  Again - not a biggie - I'm certain of what I saw, but can't explain the contradiction???

It was in a car Kurt - I don't believe that I looked for a VIN stamp because it was just a 396/325 motor & dated wrong for the car that it was in.  It didn't have a CE stamp. Original looking stamp though - who re-stamps a 396/325 just for HD clutch?  The owner wasn't even aware of the significance of "JU".  I'm just trying to add to the conversation here guys - I did not take a picture of the block.

"none known" is different then "none produced"  -  I have seen a factory JU coded block

What are you referring to with the "no cars were built" Kurt?  I know that I have seen "JU" coded blocks.  Maybe you referenced "KE" coded blocks?
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: technical articles by JohnZ on: August 10, 2014, 05:16:26 PM
They really are great - John has contributed soooo much to our hobby.  I just read the foundry article & could add just a couple of points of interest from the perspective of the Tonawanda Metal Casting Plant (where I worked for part of my time at GM).  The shape of the center screw on the "clock" definitely had significance at Tonawanda.  First shift castings had a "flat" center screw, and second shift castings had a "round" head on the screw.  Also, the position of the clock pointer indicated the actual hour of the day (not the hour of the shift).   Some GM foundries (like CFD) utilized two "clocks" on their patterns - one indicated "D" or "N" for the shift, and the other indicated the time of day.

The original owner sent me a copy of his 1969 MD title - says that he has a folder full of docs on the car.  He sold it 2/4/71 and hasn't seen it since that time.

I was at a car show today and one of the participants mentioned that he had docs for a 1969 Camaro that he bought new.  Just thought that I'd post the VIN to see if the car is still around.

I hope Ed takes a brief respite and comes back as a contributor to this site.  Hate to lose his knowledge.

I'll have my usual 3 spaces in the car corral (new system this year - so I don't know the numbers yet).  Also a car in judging on Saturday.

Grand National was in Moline last year

AACA Grand National meet is always a "must see"!  Muscle cars are becoming more & more popular there.  Also, even if you don't have a particular interest in the brass era cars - you'll appreciate the incredible level of detail & workmanship.  Next year it's going to be in AZ, so the participation will probably be down a bit - the membership is not as heavily concentrated out west.  They try to move it around the country so that everyone is within reasonable driving distance at some point.  It's a very friendly group of car people!
Chick - you'll be in the Hershey Region - bring you car(s) to Fall Hershey!
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Chevrolet's process for having another run of parts manufactured on: June 01, 2014, 03:01:39 PM
That's really the "Cliffs Notes" version of a process that typically took 3 to 12 months (or more)   :-)       There were quite a few steps between the pattern shop receiving a new part drawing and "first run" that took a lot of time.  The very first run was just an internal production of one or two castings to get the masters verified.  It was an iterative process.

Thanks Chick!
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 12 Bolt Vent Tube on: May 18, 2014, 01:59:24 PM
This topic might be too far into the weeds, but is this the correct 1969 rear end vent tube?  I see them with green tops, black tops, etc.  This one appears as if it was all ivory or white color.

Here's one from the delivering dealer of my Camaro.  Ewing delivered 10 1969 COPO Camaros.
