Thanks Bryon. Looks like the MS 201 15 seems to be correct. Both of my 1111169 distributors have this vacuum advance pod.  Though I'm not quite sure I understand the differences between the cams.

Thanks Jeff. Then I wonder what application uses the 534 cam? I also have another 1111169 distributor with a 524 cam. I'm pretty sure the differences in the cams is the length of the advance slot but by how much I don't know.

Many thanks to all but my OP was in regards to the correct cam for the 1111169 distributor not the 1111499 distributor.

Thanks,

Bob

Thanks Kurt. I thought the 732 was used only with the L-78 and L-72 engines with the 1111499 distributor but I could be wrong.

I'm considering purchasing the correct date coded distributor (1111169) for my '68 L35 A/T project. The numbers on the vacuum advance pod are 201 15 and the number on the cam is CCW 534.

Are these correct for my application?

Thanks,

Bob

And just a couple more pictures...

Here are a few pictures of my '68 01D L35 air cleaner which I believe to be original to the car when I purchased it in 1978. Maybe I have the oddball lid, but mine has two silkscreen instructions!

Thanks Ed!

Mike - Good suggestion!

Well, I didn't think I'd cause such an in depth discussion when I posted my original question! I figured surely someone must have run into this during their restoration, I'd get my answer and continue on with my project. Boy was I wrong!!

Anyway, I thought I would start to tabulate what we know so far from all of the previous posts:

Year    Engine    Build Date     Clamp Type

67         L30          610B               Wire
67         L35          704B               Stamped
67         L35          705B               Stamped

68         Z28          801B              Wire
68         L78          806?               Wire
68         Z28          807C              Stamped

Thanks Ed. Looks like mystery continues!
87  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Big Block Distributor Hold Down Clamp on: July 18, 2013, 01:01:55 PM
Ed - Well, here is more more interesting info. I found this picture in the '68 Chassis manual. Unfortunately, the picture is for a 6 cylinder engine but the interesting thing to note is that it clearly shows the wire type clamp.

Mike - What is the build date on your cars?

It's still a mystery to me why some cars have stamped clamps and others have wire clamps, particularly in light of what Ed reported in an earlier post. It also doesn't look like there is a rhyme or reason as to which size engine got which clamp since the Chassis manual shows a wire clamp on a 6 cylinder engine.

Thanks Ed.

My friends Vette is also a 427/390. Not sure of his build date though. I'll ask him what his build date is.

Thanks,

Bob

Jerry,

You would think so, right? It would seem to make sense. I'm just not sure which one to use since I've seen both type clamps advertised.

I just had a friend check his '69 427 Corvette he is restoring and it has the wire type clamp. Go figure? I even asked him to check the NCRS judging manual but unfortunately the manual makes no mention of distributor clamps.

Jerry,

I've been following a similar thread on distributor clamps but it had more to do with small blocks and the correct finish. My question was more aimed more at big blocks and which type clamp was used. The type of finish will then of course need to be answered as well.

Perhaps other members can take a peek at their big block engine and report back what type of clamp is installed and what month the car was built.

Thanks,

Bob
