You should be able to get the bolt number out of the AIM and cross reference it to AMK (http://www.amkproducts.com/catalog.htm). If you want an original one, that's a different story.

Hi Brad,
    Normally the pad where the code is stamped has a more flatter machined look from some of the ones I have seen in the field. But that is not to say your example hasn't had some surface oxidation to cause the rough texture. I have two WT's on my '67's I can look at but from memory the fonts on yours look legit.

Mike
I've seen a lot with the machined look also, but my original 309 US looks exactly like his surface. My stamping is barely legible though.

I stopped watching most of those shows. Too much drama and not enough good content. They need to come out with a "This Old House" style show. Remember the original episodes when they would watch over Norm Abrahams shoulder while he built something amazing step by step? I watch Street Outlaws some times, but they need to film more of the show in the garage while they're building the motors and setting up the suspensions.

Letting water escape makes sense but I wonder why then, with the seat frames for example, they didn't seal the two lowest sides (the first place water would get in) and leave the two high sides open for water to evaporate out of if the seam seal failed.
I would look at it this way, would you rather have a roof or a water tight basement if you were trying to keep dry in a rain storm? You want to protect the part from getting water in it in the first place, but in the event it finds a way in, which it always will, you want to have an exit path.

Thanks for the suggestion the seam sealer.

What I was really trying to get to is how to seam seal all the brackets and braces that are welded to the floor. On all four sides.......or on just two sides like GM did it......or maybe not at all. I don't undrstand why GM only did two of the four sides on all of these. It's easy enough for me to just do all four sides but before I did that, I wondering what the reasoning was for GM only doing two sides and leaving the other two unprotected.

And also, how the floor to rocker panel joint got sealant in it where that joint is covered by the front seat brace.

Thanks........Dave
I would only seal where you found factory sealant. If water were to get under your carpet and was able to work its way under the sealer somehow, you don't want it to get trapped. It needs to have a way to get out and dry.

There is one thing you can do to make them correct..  Belt sander..  Just saying.. Wink
I hear you... They were cheap for 69 Camaro BB lift hooks, but not cheap enough to grind them down. The thought did cross my mind. The guy I got them from is taking them back. Not an important piece for me, just a nice to have. I'm more than likely running my aluminum intake and Holley 3310 anyhow. I just want the stock parts on the shelf if I ever wanted to put them on. They're getting tougher and tougher to find, so I collect them when I can and hold on to them now.

Thanks gentlemen. I appreciate it. I definitely concur that it's a 70s lift hook, not for my 69. All the pics of original 69s that I found look like what you've shown me here. I was surprised I didn't find anything that said, "this is definitely a 69 Camaro lift hook and this is not."

Does this help?

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Big Block lift hooks on: February 04, 2015, 01:49:16 PM
Thanks for the response Mike. I think the subject is boring a few folks lol. I couldn't find the answer in JM's Definitive book either. All the pics I've been able to find are rounded, so I'm sure the one I picked up is wrong for my 69. I already told the guy I got it from and he's at least willing to take it back.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 Big Block lift hooks on: February 04, 2015, 10:34:34 AM
I know this topic has been beaten to death, but even using the search I couldn't find a definitive answer. I found some lift hooks, but I also found some conflicting information. Are these hooks pictured below ONLY for 73 up 454s? Someone told me they were used on all big block Camaros 68-80. P/N: 3994055. I don't believe it.
The correct ones for Camaros are the ones that are rounded at the top right? Notice how the U shaped one in the pic is off center too.

Thanks!

Those were some great detailed pics Tim. Thanks.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 OE Grille or A/M? on: January 30, 2015, 11:32:15 AM
Hawk the part number for non RS black grille is 3957062 I can't remember if it's molded on the factory one's or not. I'd look it over for one.
Thanks Vince. Unfortunately the part number isn't molded into the factory grille.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 OE Grille or A/M? on: January 29, 2015, 09:48:14 AM
I've been trying to figure out if this grill is OE or A/M. Any thoughts? I can get it for a real good price if it's OE. I don't want to shell out the funds if it's A/M. The seller said it's black molded plastic also. Thanks.

Here's a few more pics of the back of the grille. Is it original or a/m? It looks like it has the mold realease pins. A/M doesn't have that right? Would you take a chance on it for the right price?
