"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.  


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

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.


...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?

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.
53  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.

Sorry for the abbreviated request...  Here is the rest of the story!     ( The Car's return made the local TV News here in San Diego, below is the story that ran)

Boy, you sure know how to blow me the country we say,"you could knock me over with a feather." I am speechless! And I must tell you there is a tear in my eye. Great to have you, your car and your story, here, on CRG. Glad you joined and this is why I am riveted to the site.
A couple of things: Next time, listen to your wife and from now on obey her every word,lol. God rest your mom, what a great lady and great family, you are blessed. Lastly, "long may you run" ole Betsy (Neil Young aknowledgement). Pretty rare car, in  my estimation. Guy that lives near me has exact color combo(originally, now painted like a Pace Car) on a SS/RS vert (orig. BB car now SB).

Welcome Newb! Hope to get to know you and your nice car. Could this be correct? Yes. Is there a standard rule...? Yes. Read this:
You forgot to mention the build date and other pertinent info to determine if those parts are dated correct for your car. So, please post more info.

Dave, here is a thread from a few months ago about correct master cylinder lids with pics and wording. Jerry M. told me that mine is the correct factory lid for my car and it matches Gary's (69Z28-RS) and is exactly like the one in his picture. Hopefully Darrell also has his which will be nice to compare with.
Hope this helps.

Are we (CRG) in concurence that there are more than one correct lid, an early and late? I  am confident my lid is original and several posts concur although it is different from Gary's style. Sorry, not intending to Hi-jack, just wanting clarification.
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Shat R Proof Front windshield with no DOT? on: August 31, 2014, 07:24:42 PM
Just a plausible explanation I will throw out here: Cars did get damaged in transit, that is a fact. Some where damaged before they left the plant parking storage. Some were damaged at the dealer lot too. Who knows, maybe GM supplied the cloth covered seals in those repairs... and those windshields have been on those cars since delivery to the 1st owner, so , since new. explains a lot. I have seen a lot of sheetmetal repairs and overspray on new cars as well. Also historically speaking, there was a lot of unrest during this time in our country (protests and riots) that could have interrupted usual supply chains.
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: August 29, 2014, 07:44:10 PM
Danny, Here in Ohio, we have a few car part stores (chain stores) that will 'loan' you tools like a balancer puller. You put down a deposit and get it back when tool is returned. Now, It might be hard to find someone at those stores that knows what a balancer or anything else on a car is that does not involve a laptop or a chip...but that is a different story.

Mmmm, steak!...better enjoy it now my friend. By the time I buy all the parts I need for my car, the only 'steak' I'll be getting is a Kentucky round steak (Bologna for the rest of ya'all).

Looks like you got a real keeper there, nice original stuff Darrell.
