1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: need the experts help with stamp pad on: April 15, 2014, 08:43:06 AM
  I can't comment on the correctness of this stamping but I wanted to say you can have a block decked and still retain the stampings providing the decking process doesn't take too much off vs. the depth of the stamp.Most original stampings will have a very-very slight ridge along the characters edge from the metal displacement of the imprint force. Any decking, providing it doesn't take the stamping totally off, will usually even out the slightly raised edge (as this photo looks) depending on the deck cut depth.

 Oh-no.....a tape line on the blackout  Cheesy
  I'm just nit-picking......We all should look that good at our old ages.
Still, looks like a nice looking car accurate or not.

James:  I don't believe that is correct.   AM/FM the wire was rerouted under the heater box.   AIM shows double up the wire and tape.   It then goes to a clip on the bottom corner of the heater box like Mike shows.   Then to another clip on the bottom middle of the heater box then to the fan.    No wire up top.

Mike:  On yours, did they leave an empty clip up top?

 There are just 2 clips...one on the middle bottom and one on the end corner. Nothing on the top. Maybe it was just a '67 thing?

 This is one heck of a resto and looks too good to drive. But what a waste if nobody drove it and the car was restricted to just being a garage queen.

 I believe there were hot dip galvanized from the factory and not bare steel. The ones I removed from my 05B NOR were all that way (plated) and only one plug out of the 6 was not stamped with any codes. The other 5 were.

 My 67 rag top under restoration is butternut yellow. I love that color and the nice contrast with the black bumblebee stripe  Wink
And the DBC paint was only $360/gallon so that made it a plus being a solid color.

Interesting....must have rerouted the blower wire in '68. My 67 is on the bottom.

Mike

Mike, in the 67 A I M it is shown on UPC 12  A8.  There are 2, 1 right on the inboard upper corner holding the entire Harness just above where the Blower motor wire separates out, and another that holds just the Blower motor wire.

Hi Mike,
  Looking at the 67 LOS, the clip that holds the harness is on the lower right and the blower motor wire is routed under the bottom and held with a second clip.
The wire looks close to the manifold but that is just the way it appears in the photo. It is at a safe distance.

 I brought the pic into Photoshop, double the image size, inverted and adjusted the contrast and levels and it looks closer to 293912

 It could have been bead or sand blasted to cause the rough texture or then again it could have been done that way to may it look aged for another reason. But, what is of interest are the small machining grooves do no run through the number stampings as I have usually seen on other distributors. Here is a link to one made 3 days before this one as a reference. Not sure if the stampings are original or not. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Z28-1111480-distributor-9E13-May-69-302-/231148907146?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item35d18c6a8a&vxp=mtr#ht_1906wt_977

Just my observation.

 Isn't that an aftermarket white top judging from the 2-piece rear window I see?
The color combo looks good, but like a black car, the dirt must show up quickly.

Hi John,

  I thought the engine prefix stamp was applied before the heads were mounted which explained why some of the stampings were close to the head to deck edge or under the water plug protrusion as with BB's. Or was it different between BB and SB in regards to when the pad was stamped in relation to the head mountings?

 That is a very well written warranty.

 My vote is with 'OK'
It's good to see these marking were done while the engine was assembled and prior to painting over them and surviving today.
