The paintball team I am on along with another team did a couple of years of fund raisers for Wounded Warrior at the Coram field.
My car club did mention the show out east. If weather permits, I'll go there as a spectator (my car is being prepped for repaint).
The Yaphank fire dept is only 10 minutes from my house. If you don't mind my email is msinis@optonline.net so if are going I'd look forward to meeting members here.

Sorry this thread got hijacked!  Shocked

I agree that will likely be a rebody.

argh!

What next, hidden VIN re-stamps?
 I'm glad I'm not buying any rare vintage car today.

5 blade Camaro fans have steel blades.
The 4 blade fans don't really have "blades" - the unit is steel stamped in two parts and riveted together.

And yes.....those steel blades sure play havoc on timing light cables  Grin

 Are you sure it's not just a build up of paint layers and an attempt to use a rag soaked with thinners to clean it? I have seen wipes that leave seemingly sand mark streaks.

One other thing I need to meantion, I also removed my power booster this winter and sent it to Jerry MacNeish for replating, this was also put back on along with putting the engine back together. Could something be wrong with the booster that could be causing this problem?

A quick check would be to use a pair of vice-grips and pinch the vaccum hose closed.

I attached 2 pictures with one of an original pulley with its good condition finish still intact from a Dec 1966 dated 1100693 alternator (the pulley has an 11 stamp in a fin- possible month code)
I pulled this from a 67 Camaro parts car in 1983 to save as a spare (not many repo parts back then!).
Shown next to it on the right is a refinished pulley from a May 1967 dated 1100693 alternator that's on my convertible (the pulley has a 4 stamped in a fin- possible month code)
As you can see, the fan and pulley (one piece design) have a phosphate finish. I used a gun Parkerizing kit to refinish the May dated alternator pulley.
Phosphate and Parkerizing are the same, I believe. As you can see they look the same in shade and appearance despite being 45 years apart in finishes.

 I think the black paint you see may have been from a rebuild shop. They paint everything black or silver when rebuilding.

Hi Bob,

Check your gmail account. I sent several pictures and attached them in a zip file (CRG looks to have file limits) along with some other info you may find of interest.

I'll also be at a car show/swap meet this weekend and I'll keep an lookout for the linkage/bracket if you want. Send me your number and I'll call you if I come across something.
I can pick it up and send it to you.

I'll take pictures of the original pulley/fan and post it. Yes, it is one piece.

 I also have a spare pulley with the original finish and that is phosphated (dark gray) too. It looks like yours.

Is the date on the alternator between March thru May by chance?

Mike

I have the original alternator on my 67 BB (same PN as yours) and it uses that same pulley. Mine was without a doubt dark phosphate originally. I re-phosphated it recently during my current re-restore of my restored 67 L35 ragtop (repainting).  Smiley
Yours looks like it has a phosphate finish too.

It's still nice to see the 'Made in USA' though.
