Well I guess that answers the question, nobody uses them when doing a restoration.

Should be shank length, not overall including head.

Interesting that the ink date code stamp is 3 digits (189) on the first tach pictured, and 5 digits (197 69) on Gary's tach. Is that a format change during production, or is the first one possibly missing the '69'?
64  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Zinc Anode Clips on: May 31, 2014, 07:08:16 PM
The 1969 Fisher Body Service Manual indicates that sacrificial zinc anode clips were originally installed in the rear window channels on Camaros (not convertibles). See Section 17, pages 5 and 6. In my work, we employ catholic protection on major highway bridges to reduce internal steel corrosion, so I am familiar with the concept. However, I cannot see that the anode clips would be very effective in this Camaro application. Cannot think of one owner who has routinely replaced clips as they corrode, nor anyone who has installed them during restoration. Anyone know otherwise?

Very interesting. I guess the vast majority of the time we see an X behind the rear seat, it's far more probable that the car has a black, or HT interior.

Thanks, appreciate the suggestion.

Thinking of you and your good lady Danny, keep positive and know that we are there for you.

James, so the letter(s) denoted interior color and the number the model/trim, meaning only cars with a black interior should have X(letter) on the rear seat/shelf structure, regardless of the trim tag X codes? So for example, a red interior SS350 would have R5, not X5?
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: June 69 Z28 Tachs on: May 31, 2014, 12:52:03 AM
The Julian date and the last digit of the year I think if I remember right. so the 18th day of 1969 Jan 18.
Thanks Brian, makes sense. So tach date codes would be either 3-digits (up to 2nd week in April or so), then 4-digits.

Reminds me of an engine build (ok, an ever-changing test bed) that Eric at Vintage Muscle Cars has, there is a great thread over at yenko.net here http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/415017/1
A little slow to get going, but well worth the read over a couple cups of morning coffee!
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: June 69 Z28 Tachs on: May 30, 2014, 07:03:38 PM
Pics of the 6-8K I sold (stupidly) some time back. January '69 dated
Curious how you decode that date? Looks like '189', or is that ink stamp not the date code?
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: kph speedometer on: May 30, 2014, 06:59:22 PM
Anyone used either of those recommended restorers recently?
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trim clip and fuel line clip colors on: May 30, 2014, 04:21:33 AM
James, very interesting detail; were those clips always color-coded, and if so, were different colors used?
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 stuff on: May 30, 2014, 04:18:40 AM
remembers the ones (made by boring 283's in the early 60's)... ruled the street in lightweight cars.. Smiley   but the best way to do this is with a 327 or 350 block and 283 crankshaft...  boring a 283 by 1/8" is chancey at best.. Smiley
Classic old hot rodder's trick, takes me back. I remember the guys in the know would always seek out an early 283 block, apparently they had much thicker walls than later castings and could handle a 0.125" over bore without much risk of hitting water. Can't recall the preferred block casting number(s) though.
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Original GOODYEAR E70-15 Wide Tread GT, Date Code? on: May 28, 2014, 04:56:35 PM
Anyone have a similar decoding reference for Firestone?
My brother works for Firestone corp and he hasn't been able to get an answer on the 60's era tire codes
Thanks James
