Thanks for the help fellas.


Will a soaking in a carb dip remove that gasket/epoxy crud?


Gasket, yes, but the epoxy will possibly have to be ground off if you want to remove it.
It depends on how the surface was prepped before the epoxy was applied (example: if it was roughed up to increase the mechanical bond of the epoxy to the metal).

I use PS extensively so I downloaded and tried to enlarge the image using various methods and also applying an unsharp mask and deconvolution but there is not enough pixel information to see what the tag has stamped.

I was wondering if the tag has white paint or it's just a bright reflection in the photo. If it was white then I would think it was a Norwood car. If I remember right, spraying the tag white was a Norwood thing between 67 & early 68?

 I see nothing that would make a repair worthless....things look fine.
This sure looks like an earlier body judging from the use of the plunger.
If this were mine I would not hesitate to send it out for a thread repair.

 Engine pad and VIN plate have the same sequence. Probably just an add typo.

 This past thread has some dates. http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=cjovfnsrrmiritd3qohgdlbov2&topic=11931.0
I believe the amperage rating option has a lot to do with date ranges between the car build and the alternator date stamp. The basic amperage is likely to be consumed faster than an optional one that can sit on a shelf for a while before being consumed.

Sorry, but that's not correct.
TN is 67 floor shift *without* tilt. I don't think TN was used in 68.
That seems correct, Kurt. I checked my 67 4SP Muncie and the reddish color tag at the bottom of the standard steering column has 'TN' on it.
I'll check the 67 TH400 for a tag.

Hi Darrell,

  Those looks like the NOS set I bought in the 80's and are still in the wrappers. The NOS ones do not have the rivets though  Sad
I'll include the NOS plates in the side by side comparison when I get the reproductions.

Thanks for the reply!

 I understand that the front half sheet metal was sprayed body color at Chevy and the main body at Fisher, but in the B&W picture posted (http://www.camaronews.com/camaro-videos/first-camaro-ever-built-n100001-found-and-restored/) of the guy spraying the main body, I see what looks like a jig holding the front end sheet metal. Is that was it looked like (the jig) for the normal production front end spraying at Chevy's side of the wall?

 Thank you, Jek. I'll look at those reproductions then. I'll post an orig to repro comparison and share in CRG.

 I had a '69 Grand Prix develop a bad booster check valve that caused a hard brake symptom and a very noticeable 'hisssss' sound coming from the firewall/booster area but mainly when I applied the brakes.

  I have browsed that site in the past and it is a complete ripoff and is an example of what is wrong with eBay sellers who think they have gold.
What is the bolt size. I'll look in my pile of hundreds of original Camaro bolts and send it to you free of charge if I have it.

Hello list,

  Has anyone purchased door sill plates for a 67 recently or know of a close-to-accuracy as possible set with rivets?

Thank you in advance,
Mike

The middle and bottom picture look 67.
