886  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Alternator- Early '69 Build 61 amp on: April 28, 2012, 11:48:26 AM
 Are you sure of that Daniel?
  Some engines were built and sat on a rack for weeks to months before being installed in a car. So in this case for alternators that were installed during engine dressing, the date stamped may very well come before or after the engine build date depending on the volume and popularity of parts consumed on the assembly line.
In the case of my 2 '67's with originl electrical parts the LOS built car has the optional alternator so it sat for a while and was built before the engine assembly date before being installed.
The NOR car used the standard 37A unit so the build date was more recent relative to the cowl assembly date but after the engine build date.
LOS- Engine date - T0214 - Cowl date - 4B (UOIT lists 4/13/67 specifically)- Alternator date 7A30 (optional 1100696 - 42A) - Voltage  regulator date 7C
NOR - Engine date T0308 - Cowl date - 5B - Alternator date 7E4 (standard 1100693 -37A) - voltge regulator date - 7E

Or did you mean engine build = engine dressing? Huh

I just ask for pics of TT and block stamp. I also mentioned M21 on window sticker which is obviously a fake and the ad said M22. See what kind of fire that lit.

Was there any reply to this request yet?

888  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did console gauge cars also have a low oil pressure switch? on: April 27, 2012, 07:05:40 AM
 I don't think so. The gauge attachment point to the block is where the oil light pressure sensor would have been screwed into if you didn't order the gauge package.
I have two BB 67's and the one with the gauge option has the oil line screwed in the same block fitting that the 'idiot light' sensor is screwed into on the other car.
The AIM shows this in U17 / A4

What color is the body?

Mike

I asked because of the under body overspray spray color.

Thanks!

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.

898  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 L30 alternator fan assy - what finish ? on: April 17, 2012, 10:29:18 PM
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.

Mike

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

Mike
