Gotcha.  Thought it was from his last post.  It does look like bare metal.

Oaklyss, in that last picture, is the horizontal area on the underside of the rocker bare metal? Can't tell, could be the flash effect, but it looks like there isn't even primer on there.

I think you are getting the flash along with the orange reflecting on the black giving it that bare metal look.  You can see the line where the black ends (or the bare metal looking area) and orange begins.

On the right you will see the color scales vs temp.  Black and then purple is the coolest.  This scale will change once it sees temps above or below its calculated range and will recal for that.  I tried this again later on last night and got the pad extremely warm (around 200*F) and I allowed it to cool and took a few shots of it and still could not see anything materializing.  I need to try this with an engine that is running and use the tripod and do the 15 min photo cycles.  I believe it will work I just need to nail down the process.

Id need to see a better pic of the tag but first glance it looks o k....  Horrible description with no info about engine, trans or rear.  Also no pics of trunk, floors and any of the undercarriage.  Maybe its full of bondo..??..

Ok I have attempted the TIC trick and I see nothing.  Maybe I am not getting it hot enough before letting it cool.  I should have grabbed the tripod but forgot it at work.  Also this is a bare block and it may need the entire engine brought to temp.  IDK  I plan on trying again later on when the temps in the garage drop below 90...

I have a decked bbc at home.  Ill take the "tic" home and see if the numbers show up when I apply heat from a propane torch.  Should be a good test.

I have a thermal imaging camera that I use at work.. I actually was using it this morning.  Its a Fluke Ti32.    Hmmm..  They only cost about $8K

I read recently that the vette guys are at least 10 years ahead of any other marque on being able to identify fake tags and stampings.

That doesnt surprise me..

Darrell,

Yes. The clutch fan (RPO K02) was included on cars with AC, 396/375 engines or Z28.

Bob

Interesting.  Thats the first big block I have seen without a clutch..    I would have thought it would have ran hot..??...

I wasnt directing it to anyone because I know we all enjoy talking about these things and I dont want to see these types having an edge. 
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: A.I.R Smog Diverter valve on: June 17, 2014, 02:08:51 PM
Just curious but did your car come with a 4 blade fan? Huh

Before this goes further lets make sure we are not giving the "fakers" clues as to how they can better their craft.. Wink
