"but I may come back over just because I now have all the time in the world.   I retired after 35 years in the oil patch.  "

Please do (come back) and congrats on your recent retirement.

If they were original quarter panels, the holes for the louvers would be present.  

Exactly!

When I saw the louvers were not present, I thought the same thing, and this is probably the case, but I remembered that JohnZ's car had the fender emblems removed and filled in and did not want to make an assumption.  But, that wrong wiper motor (non RS) was the last straw.lol

Can a 03B build have a Dec 68 cover and be ok?Huh

Why sure. It is better than having a 12B build with a 3/69 cover, which would NOT be ok.

  This guy in Canada has these ads a lot on eBay and for 67 & 68 tags the numbers are not quite right and the horizontal column alignments are not period correct.

Mike


...and maybe he (Canadian guy) knows his tags have problems and now we are helping him by telling what he needs to change to correct his parts. Hope this is not the case?
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Oil Pressure Gauge Block Sender Fitting on: September 05, 2014, 03:34:46 PM
Quite a bit posted about this topic, I know. 69Z28 (Gary) asked a week ago under 69ZEE's (Darrell) post about a pic of his fitting. I began to look for my fitting, which I can say without question, is the original fitting off my L48 11D Nor U17 opt. car. There is a small brass pin in the ferrule that goes inside the plastic line. This looks the same as S. Shauger's in post #75. For the record, here are pics:

Danny, It looks to me like you may be a tooth off, but it is really hard to confirm an assessment since the cam bolts are not installed. Install the bolts, snug them to seat gear to cam, then look at dots. If they line up, proceed to re-assemble, if not, unbolt, remove gear and chain, move (rotate) cam and top gear until corrected, then put chain back on without turning cam position.

BLANK      V 1204 TBC  = My literature points to a 1970 4bbl. 350 c.u. used in 1/2 to 1 ton .This is a Flint Dec 4th build. Look for casting date KERR and report back. My experience tells me this is a 4 bolt main block and a good cheap candidate for a powerful street /strip build.

3947041,   L30  3 I would double check the casting date and guess it might be an *8* instead of * 3*  These are or were great heads in the day. 64cc "camel hump" without the hump used on L48 300hp 350s and 302 Z engine. With todays gas and heads, there are much better, but without spending a lot, these can give outstanding performance particularly if you bore .030
the old adage,"when in doubt,bore it out" works well on a 350 and unshrouds valves.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Screen under cowl vent holes ??? on: September 03, 2014, 07:45:48 PM
Look around a salvage yard. I am sure there are several late model candidates. Most will be plastic- use epoxy like JB weld. My thought is that leaves and S**t will get wedged between screen and vent and cause constant problems cleaning out area.

Well that settles the dimple mystery.
 I picked up my timing chain set-up and it is a double. How do I know when to stop when pressing this on? Do I go until it stops, will it bottom out in the correct location? Will it clear cover? ... Danny
Yes,yes and yes...brings back memories of my first open engine surgery, yea, I was nervous, had the same questions, I was 16.
