Great news! Too bad you do not have your location on your profile, then we could have had conversed and you could have helped me with part finding and, likewise, I could have helped you. You are missing out on another great resource of part acquisition by forming relationships (networking) , here, on the site. Best of luck and can't wait to see pics of your progress.

This photo shows what looks to be either a way to manipulate the engine for painting or part of the mask for the end of the water pump and the by pass hose is this correct?

Yup, that's correct.
JohnZ-You mean both? Manipulate engine and/or mask?

Going back to Darrell's post (#45) the footnote (4) regarding LeMans Blue says that only White stripes have been observed...Hmmm...makes me even more curious what could have caused my tag to be - - ? Does the color look like 71? This is a real curiosity to me that I thought KurtS settled, but perhaps not. Only other thing that was different about car are the XT rims seemed to be painted Argent and I do not know if this was done after car left factory. There is blue under the silver, but whoever painted them, did so with tires off as there is overspray on inside surface where tire mounts. Just because there is blue under the silver could be someone at Nor. did not see notes and corrected to what order said? Just speculating at this point. Would like to hear what others have to say and this is nothing against Kurt's expertise, which I respect deeply, but I have never been real sure about this TT's meaning.

Z28's would show the "-" special paint code on the cowl tag so that Fisher wouldn't paint the trunck stripes, but all other stripes we GM's to paint and they didn't use any of the codes on Fishers tag to determine what options went on the car.  Heck the front end wasn't even near the rear body tub when it was painted, it was in a separate paint booth, and was never near the body until it was installed.

If he's got an L78 with a dash paint code it has to have been be a non standard color originally, or a color paint that was discontinued earlier in the model year.
If I understand your point, Mark, you are saying the dash(s) on the TT only pertained to work performed by Fisher (cowl on back), so that front striping delete (non-Fisher work)would not show a dash on the TT. Correct?
First, I am not sure that I agree. Having said that, I am certainly no expert on any of the ordering, building, selling or any other operation involved with production of early Camaros. I do have a 69 L48 car with 2 dashes on tag where paint code is located. I wondered why this was the case as the color appears to be standard color (LeMans Blue) and, in my case, no stripes were deleted. KurtS pointed out that the dashes are probably because the D90 stripes are white, but the car has a black vinyl top, the default color shows a black top would get black stripes! Now, I am not sure were the default color change (dashes) affected the top or the stripes? I mean, was it ordered with a black top (default stripe color was black) and a requested the white stripe or was it ordered with the white stripe and a change in V. top color? The later example would point to the Fisher end of production. This would support what you say, but , in fact, is this the case?
The second point: The last sentence regarding the L78, being this is a Big Block car, couldn't the paint delete be the tail panel black(Fisher side)?
246  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Engine swap--are all 327s the same? on: May 06, 2014, 09:48:41 PM
One of my best friends in 1968-70 (I was in the USAF) owned a '68 Chevelle with the L79 / 4 speed.   It was rated 327 ci/325 hp in the Chevelle..  We beat MANY SS396 chevelles with that car...  I loved it...   327 ci engine was one of my favorite of all the Chevy engines, with it's great compromise between revvable HP, and drivability torque.   If that engine had been offered in the Camaro, why would they have needed the 350???   The 350/300 would have been a step down..
X2 those L79's were one mean and potent combinations that made gobs of power giving the Small Block a reputation as a fierce beast.

James that's the kind of out of the box thinking that get results on your camaro's history. Keep looking never give up the fight...

Kind of learned it from a guy I admire for his tenacity...goes by Vince Z28. By the way, the club disbanded years ago, around 84, I believe. Person I contacted was nice and tried to help.
248  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ohio guys -looking for info on this decal on: May 05, 2014, 08:19:31 PM
A little more intense invetigating turned up a name of the past president of the club in Jamestown, Ohio. I contacted this person tonight and they verified the decal was from that club from around 1978-9. The person was not sure if they still had a name roster, which I thought may help in past owner history. Just a month ago I made contact with two previous owners from that time period. I am thinking one of them is the link to this decal, so I will call them and see what they can tell me.

"My 11D car has a 11-22 axle, but so does my 12B car, same date, same BS code."  It was a little late when I posted and I chose to use my memory-a real faulty device of late. A little correction 11D= BS 1118 G2 E (Nov 18th), 12B= BS 1122 G2 E (Nov 22nd). Thanks CRG.
Jonn's 12B (post #9) is BS 1121, one day difference. I bet those rears where stacked like cord wood at the plant?!

Sounds like a lot of BS to me!  Wink

Paul

Ain't the first time I've been accused of this?!!...and that's no BS,LOL.

255  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Best Method For Instrument Panel Lens Cleaning? on: May 03, 2014, 09:49:45 AM
Toothpaste is what I have used too. Not so much what cleaner, but my concern would be what cloth being careful as any abrasive scratching is more to come from the cloth used. The cloth used for eyeglasses to clean lens would be good as well as old underwear. I think applying light pressure is important so not to scratch. If the lens is dusty or lightly soiled, I would use dish soap under a running fawcet with just using your fingers or a soft bristle toothbrush and let the lens air dry. It is the paper towel or cloth that scratches up the lens, so avoid using them.
