John, HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
My Nor 11A, 396-325,  Diff Cast K88 ( Nov 8 68 ), Diff Stamp BL1111G2 ( Nov 11 68 ), Engine cast Aug 68, Inspection stamp on brake adjuster 316 ( Nov 16 ).
Definitely not completed in the second week of November. Nice thread. George

Chick, I blasted the bracket and it looks dipped in paint because of the heavier paint buildup in the fold. Nice stamping found on the back also. George

Chick, the body bracket shows paint on both sides as noticed by paint under bolts. I will blast the bracket today and might be able to tell if it was dipped. I have a picture from under the car that shows it was installed after the bottom was painted. I cant answer on the bolts. Also notice one exhaust hanger was installed before the bottom was painted. That has been a real mystery to me. Thanks for the diff bolt confirmation. George

My desire is to restore it to as it left the factory, but just a little nicer, cleaner, and more durable for street use. Does that even make sense?
An example, my diff housing I tried to do a light powder coating so that it was more durable than paint, but backing plates that see less abuse I painted. George.

Chick, Thanks for all the info you post, it has been a big help to my restoration. I just finished my diff. thought I would pass along what info I found & ask for advice.
My car is an 11A Nor built car. I assumed the car build started Nov 3-9 1968, but the diff was stamped Nov 11Th and the inspection stamp date on the brake adjuster is Nov 16 (316). I thought you posted a picture of your stamp date but I can't find it.
My diff had very little paint on it but the backing plates had very thick black paint. They were dipped & hung because the paint was thickest at the top of the plate. My brake adjuster arm was dark in color kind of a dark blue-black color, I think it was dark phosphate. My springs were the same colors that you found, but I didn't find any paint on the brake shoe retainer caps. The large nut holding the top shoe pivot was copper plated. After cleaning, plating & assembling everthing it kills me to paint over it. I really don't like the look of paint on the parking brake cables, looks sloppy but correct I guess. I would like to get my car judged after I complete it, and I wonder if a judge would deduct points without paint on the cables & bolts. What would you and others do?

I am restoring my diff. and found the rear brake hose support on the body was painted black, had sealer on the back side also. The bracket on the diff. had no paint. When I went to bolt up the diff. bracket the standard wide flange diff bolt made a new scar on the bracket. I have an odd bolt with a captured lock washer that matches the original scar on the bracket. AIM states the bracket used the same diff cover bolt but I am seeing mine had a lock washer bolt. Anybody else seen this?
George.

Marty, restoring my axles & wheel studs & thought I would post this picture. One axle had five studs with triangle stamping the other had "F" stamping on the studs.
Studs are all same length, "F" studs have slight taper at the start of the thread for maybe 1/16". All were black phosphate finish before glass beading.
Both axles seem original but I don't know for sure. Maybe others can post what they have seen. George.

I just looked at my carb number, 11A 396-325 AT, as stamped 29200EE. I assume the complete # 7029200EE. Is this a Chevrolet replacement carb?
George.

Marty, Here is a picture to show where they go. George

I just cleaned up & painted my brackets, the front bracket had very little paint on one side, probably from road blast, but the other side was defiantly painted. The bracket that holds the 2 lines with rubber insulators had NO paint on it.  Nor 11A. George

Marty, I am not sure if I've seen this bolt shown so I thought I'd post it. Rear brake backing plate to diff. 3/8" x 24 - 1" dark phosphate. Note the nut is taller than normal, zinc plated, and used a lock washer.

Jerry, Thanks for your reply. This forum & members are great. The hex bolts #9420825 I have are marked "L", "E", and blank. They were also used on my brake bias valve.
There was propably a part number change on an early 69 AIM revision sheet that doesn't show on my copy.
George

John thanks for the input, this head mark "23" is the similar to my door hinge bolts and shown on other cars also. I took an inventory of the bolts I took off the bottom of the car and I am missing 2 bolts that hold the rear upper shock mount. I guess these 2 gold bolts were replacements at some point.
However I do have another dilemma. The bolts I took off for the fuel & brake line clips are not all the same bolt. 1969 AIM shows #3958062 used in both locations but I have some normal hex and flange head bolts, see picture. Since my car is a Nov. 68 car I wonder if someone with an early car could check their bolts or if you have a 1968 AIM see if they list the same bolt number for fuel & brake lines. Bolts with hex head were used on the fuel clips & can be seen by scar marks on the clips.
Thanks for the help. George
