My VN car also has the same shims as the bottom picture. I recently stripped an original '67 Firebird, and it too had the bottom type of shims on the control arm shafts.

Hey Gary, no "correction" intended; I thought it was yet another difference between the early (6k-7k redline) and mid-production (6k-8k redline) tachs......
What (if anything) does a tach needle resting above, or below, zero indicate about the gauge's functional state? I see the one in your picture is below, and mine (removed from the car) rests just above, zero. I'm planning to send it out anyway for rebuild and recalibration, but wondered if that may indicate some internal damage Sad
438  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Stamping Tool for VIN on Block & Trans on: March 30, 2013, 05:46:46 PM
I don't believe that's the correct tach for a Z28, Larry.   Z28 should 'yellow' at 5500 and red' at 6000.
Interesting point Gary; mine 'yellows' at 5700 and 'reds' from 6000 (to 8000, as it's an 04A car).
439  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 am/fm blue light radio questions on: March 29, 2013, 07:05:28 PM
The U80 option has only one speaker in the rear deck not two and one under center of the dash.
Quite right, my typing mistake. Thanks for the correction.
440  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 am/fm blue light radio questions on: March 29, 2013, 02:23:08 AM
My understanding of the radio options was that AM-FM would have been either U69 (mono) or U79 (stereo, 4 speakers - 2 in rear package tray and one in each kick panel). You could have also had U80 (2 rear speakers) with U69. If the kick panel speakers are factory originals, looks like your car has U79. If so, this would have included the multiplex amplifier, which was located under the passenger side dash, up above the glovebox liner.

That car is very cool, I love it! Thanks very much for sharing it with us.
Is the interior all original? Just interested because there was a recent thread regarding grab handle colors in code 715 interior cars, and your handle appears to be black, same as mine.
442  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Stamping Tool for VIN on Block & Trans on: March 27, 2013, 02:26:37 AM
Larry, that is a highly unusual color combination; I have a silver VN Z/28 with a 715 interior, but would love to see some pictures of your black on blue car if you're willing to post them!
443  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: !969 cushion grip or rosewood steering wheel with tilt column on: February 18, 2013, 03:51:03 PM
Any info on tilt column diameter or hub part #s or actual diameter @ the column end of the #3937896 hub would be helpful. Thanks
I just measured an original 3937896 hub as follows:
Overall diameter at wheel side: 3+5/16" (or 84.5mm)
Overall diameter at column side: 4+1/8" (or 104mm)
Hope this helps.

Can you identify which hole the wiring comes through (if any) in the image below?

Nice to meet you all, and thanks for all your help so far.
447  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Zl-2 Cowl Hood Production on: February 01, 2013, 07:34:28 PM
Now we are seeing good data!    Please show Nor. or Van.  with body production  and hood week.    Now lets keep the data coming!
The original hood on my 04A Van Nuys car is stamped '13'; although not requested in this thread, the quarters and trunk lid are stamped '12' and the roof reinforcement on the driver's side is '7'. Haven't checked the fenders or doors yet, where would the stamp likely be on those?
448  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Zl-2 Cowl Hood Production on: January 31, 2013, 06:33:39 PM
were flat hoods stamped as well?
Yes they were, on the driver's side rear corner - same as the picture posted earlier on page 1.
449  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Zl-2 Cowl Hood Production on: January 31, 2013, 05:04:34 AM
Here is my SS350 factory ZL-2. Probably very few made.
Does your car have a '270' ignition coil? Beautiful car, BTW!
450  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Reproduction Endura Bumpers are horrible on: December 05, 2012, 04:16:13 AM
I use a few hundreths of a gram less hardener than base at most and have had great results.
James,
Could you confirm which product you'd recommend for repairing cracks in an original VE3 bumper? I have had 3M Automix 05887 recommended to me, but noticed a reply on page 1 of this thread that mentioned 05883.
Cheers, Tim
