511  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 BB Exhaust Manifold bolts on: October 21, 2013, 02:13:21 PM
Hey Don and gang,
No need to take the blame on the terminology, it's not a Cannuck thing this time, it was me. I referred to bolts as shouldered in my initial post and ,yes, I guess I meant flanged. You see what getting old does to you!,LOL. Thanks Steve for straightening me and Don out. Thanks Steve also for the pic. I have several topics that I want to clarify and get frustrated when a catalog says one thing, a forum on another site says something else, guy tells me something else. I always come to the CRG to get the truth. Bentley.

Man, if you can see a missing VIN plate from those pix, then you are an 'eagle eye'..  *G*   
I think what was meant is since no Vin is provided, it makes it hard to compare with Trim Tag body build # and date aligning. My first thought is if someone is so knowledgeable about the Z10 option, why can't he verify if the drivetrain is # matching? Seems that he leaves out just enough info to make me want to question car.i am not saying it is fake, because there is not enough info, but as knowledgeable as the owner seems...just saying.

Thanks SZteve and Don. Guess you can see why I am having so much trouble with this ?
514  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 BB Exhaust Manifold bolts on: October 18, 2013, 10:40:04 PM
Thank you Don. I was pretty sure on there being two bolts, just needed confirmation. Too many resto catalogs tell you wrong info. I 'll throw the washers back in with the SB bolts bin.
515  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 BB Exhaust Manifold bolts on: October 18, 2013, 03:36:04 PM
Did a lot of research on this site and TC with no definitive answer, so here goes: 1969 396 exhaust manifold bolts-cast iron heads. I know the resto parts book show a shouldered bolt used throughout, but a guy I met at a show with a 69 396 Chevelle tells me that 2 different bolts were used. Where the larger hole is in the manifold, the bolt with washer is used and the shouldered are used on the other holes. This would be 1/2 and 1/2,8 shouldered and 8 w/washers, if correct. Can someone shed some light? Along this topic, as I understand, No french locks used? No heat shields on plugs? correct? Wanting to put an end to the BS and get the facts. Thanks, as always.
516  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: To the paint shop! on: October 15, 2013, 08:05:20 PM
Congrats! Janobyte. I am still waiting for "that" call. Body man has put me off another year, need to find a new one soon if this guy can't do it although he is my first choice, I don't have a second choice. I am afraid I may loose interest if this drags out too long. By the way, If my car's body and paint looked as good as your before pics, I would have been happy with that and left it alone. Makes my car look like a real dog...sorry, no offense to dogs (wife and I are dog lovers).

4)711
5)NO Z23-No dash assist-pedal bright trim-does have wood-grain on headlight sw. and radio and console and steering wheel.
6)pebble grain with wood-grain insert in center-and yes, this is original I have owned since 1985 car is virtually untouched w/original paint,wheels etc..

518  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / round 1969 pinion snubber on: October 02, 2013, 12:31:05 PM
Awhile back,another post brought up the fact that there are two types of pinion snubbers used on 1969 Camaros. I have the round bolt on type on my 12B Nor. car. Mine is re-usable, but I may have found a suitable replacement. Here is the add: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-1964-72-GM-BODY-PINION-SNUBBER-ROUND-STYLE-TIP-GM-3996323-/350595013212  The part # is 3996323 for A body GM's. Did anybody ever determine what the Camaro part # should be? It just so happens that the traction bars on my car also use a snubber exactly like the pinion snubber. The traction bars,I believe, are about as old as the car and were on the car when I bought it in 1979. I am still trying to get info on these TBrs with no luck so far. Hope this helps those needing this part if it is correct, which it looks good to me.

No, never have I seen a deep groove from a 837 with a keyway, only the fan. I have 3 originals to compare.
520  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: First time Camaro gen 1 buyer on: September 19, 2013, 09:07:25 PM
at the very least,you might be able to pear down through the cowl vent(near the passenger wiper arm) with a light and make out the numbers. At the most,you may have to have owner remove cowl vent panel so numbers can be accessed. There is a second set of numbers under the heater fan, but serious diassembly would be needed to see this set. Most would be satisfied if the cowl vent number matches. It is a partial vin starting with 8n------(norwood built) or 8L------(los Angeles) for a 1968 model year. The rest of the vin should match dash vin 363426.All this information is here on this site.Proceed with caution!
521  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Sheetmetal Date Code on: September 19, 2013, 02:56:59 PM
Yes, My LH door has a H49 on top H50 on bottom. Now I am going from memory and those numbers may not be exact. The car is up on my lift right now and there is a car undeneath, so I cannot look at it. It is the original door and it is a 12B Norwood car. Door panel is off as I am waiting to get bodywork done. I thought it was odd when I saw it, but was hesitant to post as I am still new to posting pics.I have 2 other cars with original sheetmetal I can check, if I get time.
522  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / WOW! Chance to buy a COPO from Original owner on: September 19, 2013, 02:44:56 PM
Just found this interesting...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1969-Chevy-COPO-Yenko-Camaro-/271280681721?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item3f2996b2f9  . Claims 9,100 miles. Didn't even clean the dust or cobwebs off! I don't see evidence that it is a YENKO as owner claims, but orig. owner should know, right?   http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1969-Chevy-COPO-Yenko-Camaro-/271280681721?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item3f2996b2f9
523  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Need help on IDing a 69 RS-SS ??? on: September 08, 2013, 09:23:12 PM
One thing that I look for, all though it could have been replaced, is the fact there is no medallion on the brake pedal for power brakes. I view this like fuel lines in that is one item not usually touched or changed when converting to Pwr. brakes. It does show evidence of RS based on wiper motor and holes on inner fender where washer bottle was located on RS car. If you really want a true BB car, there are many details not present under the hood that would probably keep me from seriously considering this car as authentic. My 2cents.
524  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carb numbering on: September 03, 2013, 09:41:22 PM
ko-lek-tor,

Somewhere in the early 70s (I think 1972) Holley carbs went from a 3 digit date to a 4 digit date.  For a 4 digit date code, the first 3 characters represented the Julian date (1 through 366) and the last character represented the year of the decade.

3 digit date codes were prior to about 1972, and I believe the digits were for year, month, week.
Sorry,bcmiller, I was wondering about Q-jets. That was the carb in OP reference. I am aware about Holley's and dating changes.
525  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carb numbering on: September 03, 2013, 06:50:59 AM
I too, have a 7029207 Q-jet on my L48 '69. When I bought my car in '79, it appeared to be a virtually untouched original and because of that, I never checked numbers on any of the components until this year (crazy,I know). Most of my number verification efforts are spent on my big block car. The carb has a May '69 date, I believe, and the car itself is a 4th week of November '68 Norwood model. I assumed the carb was replaced under warranty and this post gives some creedence to that idea. I suppose it could have been replaced in '79 just prior to my purchase (Nov.'79). Is there anyway to distinguish dates '69 vs '79?
