Not sure if this is the problem, but do you have the nylon connector installed that goes between the oil pump shaft and distributor?

18  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Y55 Battery Warranty Label/Sticker on: June 19, 2013, 07:13:33 AM
Approximately 1974 they stopped putting Energizer on the battery. So if your battery only says Delco on the top and not Delco Energizer, an earlier dated sticker before '74 will be incorrect.

Not seeing Energizer on the battery carton, and the dates on your label lead me to believe you have just Delco on your battery.


Not trying to be critical just want you to be informed.......Warren

Lawrence, are the ends that go into the radio straight, or right angles?

20  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Glass Production Date on: May 25, 2013, 02:20:57 PM
My 04A 1969 Van Nuys car has the following tinted LOF codes.....

Back window XV Feb '69
Drivers door AX Sept '68
Drivers 1/4 AX Sept '68
Pass door XV Feb '69
Pass 1/4 NV Jan '69

Original windshield has been replaced.

You might want to double check your XV and VX codes just to make sure you didn't transpose them. Also, you did not say whether your glass is tinted or clear.

21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: CROSS MEMBER POSITION on: May 23, 2013, 07:21:43 PM
If you are asking if the crossmember is installed correctly, it is. The extra holes that can be seen on the drivers side outer lips, two in rear and one in front are for attaching the Muncie shifter bracket. Those holes always go toward the drivers side.

It is actually solder. The ground wire is soldered to the case. There is an internal wire.

Terry, are there any dates on the motors?

24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Muncie ID ? on: April 27, 2013, 06:38:43 AM
If the input shaft has one or two rings going around the ten grooves it is not a M22.

25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What carb date for my 06A early June Z on: April 14, 2013, 02:10:53 PM
Thanks for the explanation JohnZ about the carburetors!

So the distributors were not installed with the engine assembly when shipped as they were shipped naked? Was the distributor that was tested with the engine reunited at the car assembly plant? When were those chisel marks done at the final assembly of the car?

26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What carb date for my 06A early June Z on: April 14, 2013, 12:51:27 PM
My 05E build Norwood car is (a little over) one thousand serial numbers less than your car Gary. Engine stamp V0514DZ with carb dated 943.

Bill, why were the carbs not included with the engine assembly? Distributors were, as I was told that is why they have the chisel marks on the intake, and distributor neck for basic timing alignment. Those marks were there in case the dist was disturbed during transit. So why not ship with carb attached? No gasoline would be included at that stage.

What is your engine assembly date?
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Just bought a 68 SS and need help on: March 16, 2013, 06:32:17 PM
I believe the tranny case is a replacement. Since it has CC0 stamped into it, it is a over the "Counter Case" and the zero after CC is for '70. Check your case casting number and see if it ends in '661. They started using them in the later part of '69. The '660 case was used in '68.

The number 41685 is the serial number of the case not of the car.

Replacement cases do not have a date of assembly stamp since they were not sold as a complete tranny.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: RPO U17 - firewall hole size on: February 24, 2013, 03:26:22 PM
The oil line hole on the 04A Van Nuys car is coming through the firewall near the speedometer cable grommet for Muncie 4 speed routing.

Original hole location should be approx 3 3/4" straight across from the center of the lower wiper motor mounting screw. There is a dimple in the firewall if it is not drilled.

The original oil line grommet is slightly larger than 1/2" on the topside. The firewall is drilled 1/2".

Not sure how to post pictures so I am going to send them to your email address in your profile.

Thanks for checking your horn dates for me......Warren
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: RPO U17 - firewall hole size on: February 23, 2013, 11:55:51 PM
I also have a 04A Van Nuys car.

If I recall the oil line grommet hole is not located in the same spot as the Norwood cars. It appears the assembly line workers were not sure of the location. Cant verify if this is true on all Van Nuy '69 Camaros built at different times.

Not sure of the hole size, but if I can get at the car I will get some pictures to show location.

Do you have the original horns on your car? If so, I would like to know the dates.

Thanks, Warren
