I have a RS/5605 that it stamped, foil tagged and has a very faint yellow ink/paint stamp with the part number on the side of the case.
Steve, it would be great if you can add your details to the list above; since your wiper motor has both a stamp and a sticker, it may be from around the time of the changeover - i.e. using up stocks of stamped casings at the same time the stickers were being added once the motors were assembled.
Cheers, Tim

Perhaps we can start off some data point collection, following on from Gary's chart?
If we can add the sticker details here, it may start to indicate a date range for sticker use....
Gary - I also added in column for final assembly plant.
Car build date    NOR/LOS      RS?       sticker PN?       Stamped PN?                 Other codes

       09C                                   Y         5045605                   N                      227      9     6      A
       ??                                     N         5045572                   N                      282      9     6      B

Thanks Gary,
Yes, the date code (as I understand it) is:
Assembly Part #
Julian Date (Day)__Year__Factory Line__Shift Code

So in your case, the part # is for an RS wiper assembly * (mine, 5045572, is standard assembly for non-RS car).
Assembled 227th Day of 1969 on line # 6, 'A' shift (Day).

Just trying to determine if there was a changeover date, with a view to putting the correct one on my 04A car.

* (Before someone mentions it, I believe that a non-RS car could have had the #605 assembly if it had the headlamp washer option, but that was rare).

I have a number of used '69 wiper motor assemblies and some have the part number 5045572 stamped on the end of the motor casing, and some have it on a silver foil sticker/label; the casing end just has Type E 12V on those with the label. The foil stickers are from later 69 production, judging by the julian date code on the stickers I have. The stamped casings don't appear to have a date code.
Would it be correct to think that motor assemblies changed over at some point from earlier motors having the assembly part number stamped, to later motors having it printed on a foil sticker, and if so, at what point in 69 production did the change occur? Was there a difference too between NOR and LOS/VN produced cars?

I do have one but I can't bring myself to sell it Sad
Most people that own original 7708M balancers feel the same, that's why you rarely see them for sale.

Where are you located? It is a Home Depot staple
Australia - no HD here.... and many products cannot be shipped here due to air cargo regulations.
337  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Fan Shroud on: July 28, 2013, 03:18:44 AM
Here's a picture of the part number on the shroud - sorry about cr@ppy cellphone image, but you can see the dash between 4th and 5th digits.
Maybe that is a way around the GM copyright issue for reproduction parts, use the same number but add a dash?
I should probably explain, I live in Australia so not very easy to get parts, there's no local GM dealer (unless you want a Holden....).
338  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Timing Cover date codes on: July 27, 2013, 09:53:34 PM
On my work bench I have 2 of these, one is '34 69' and the other is '13 70'. Unless there were different date formats, I think the "month, year" format could be ruled out. If it was "Julian date, year" I would expect to see many with a 3-digit date, followed by year, but have never seen an xxx yy stamp, only xx yy (anyone else seen an xxx yy stamp?). So maybe it's "week, year", and if so, is it production week of model year (like gas tank date stamps) or calendar year weeks??

Use the organic stuff in the bucket - Ready Strip - green goo cuts through several layers of paint.
Unfortunately not sold here.....

Thanks for the suggestions Steve - I have already tried various other methods, but found the heat gun delivers the best result. I may still give the fiberglass stripper a try though, was told it is likely too harsh, but could try a small area that won't be seen once installed.
My query was just over the part number, as I have never before seen a genuine GM 7-digit part number with a dash in it.
341  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Fan Shroud on: July 27, 2013, 04:29:06 AM
My original GM fan shroud was painted by a previous owner, and I have been trying various methods of removing paint without damaging the plastic. So far, the best method is to use a heat gun on a low setting, with a plastic scraper. However, this is taking forever and I have been offered an easy option - another fan shroud off a 69 small block car. My only issue is that my shroud has the part number 3938615 and the one on offer has 3938-615. I'm wondering if the one with the 'dash' in the part number is a reproduction - can anyone confirm?

Charlie, interesting to see what others recommend, but I have heard good things about Doug Thorley Tri-Y headers, especially regarding underside and engine bay clearances, so will be getting those for when I reassemble my car.

Awesome reunion, congratulations to you for setting that up - must've been a great day!
