Hey Jerry, just wanted to mention that I went back and looked at the original photo of the Z, and the photo has Sept. 1967 printed at the top.  So it was the U. S. Nationals.

Wow,  All this time I have had this photo, I would think, Gee it was a shame you didn't take a photo of the side of it.  Great photo, this is very cool.  You know, the photos of the 67 Yenko posted the other day inspired me to dig this photo out.  Maybe others will start digging.

Thanks Gary for posting photo for me.  This photo of the 67 Z/28 was taken in the pits at the 1967 Indy Winter Nationals by my mom, with my Dad beside her, with me sitting on my dads shoulders.  I think my parents were taking a break from me screaming at the top of my lungs every time a Top Fuel went by.  My Dad still to this day riddles me about that.  I will say, I wasn't but 4 1/2 years old, what did you expect!  I hope someone recognizes this Z!

Thanks Mike, good to hear from you.  Mark , Would the stamp that we know to look for, on the pad, be only on camaro pumps, or does other GM bodies have the same stamp to confuse things even more?  In other words:  When we find our code on the stamp pad, then we have found our pump for camaro's.  ANYONE that knows of other bodies to have the same characters on the stamp pad, please tell us.

Hi All,

I found my perfect dated restored 7801149 smog pump on ebay, needed for my 69 Z.  This pump that i'm interested in is listed as other pumps he has in stock and is not the one for sale.  I could win the auction and he would send my dated pump instead of the one listed.  He has nice photos but does not show the back 7801149 number, and he does not show the stamp pad.  He does list that it is a 7801149.  I emailed him and ask to see photos of the stamp pad and he answered around my questions.  Has anyone dealt with Selloldparts, (John) and had good luck?  Does anyone know of these pumps as restamps?

Thanks,
Bryan

Lots of new NOS parts for sure, BUT, if you go to the list of parts, and about 3/4 down the page, you will start seeing prices.  These are the NOS parts that have been on the website for a long time.  Along with the long prices.

Thanks all, for the suggestions and help!

Due to the fact that they don't make things like they use to, and most cam companies have been bought out.  I ask for 69 Z owners to recommend a good poly lock that is reliable and will keep the adjustment well, and with a good quality overall.  I will be using a 140 cam and 3927142 springs and O rockers.  Please give your suggestions on a good brand and the part number.

Thanks,
Bryan

Chick, Thank you for those new photo's.  The carb studs were an item that I've been wanting to compare from this car.  The studs with the undercut at the top seem to be original across the board and very very hard to find.  Some of the more advanced vendors do not have these studs.  I have these same studs in my intake, and know of a few more cars that have them, but many have the replacement type.  I was wondering how rare these studs actually are, or not.

Thanks,
Bryan

I will have to say that the production figures that Gary has been using from the CRG calculations have to be pretty close to correct.  Gary figured the production of my 69 05A Z/28 while we were sitting in the motel room at Frederick this year.  Gary came up with May 7th (127th day), using the 629 car a day figure.  I knew that this figure was pretty close as I had an agent do the dealer and production search back in the 90's, and it came back as shipped May 8th.  I just got my NCRS search back and it said the production date was May 7th!!, and was sent to C. D. King Chevrolet.  It appears this method is pretty close, as it has been double checked twice.  KERR's car was done using the same method.

Thanks all, for your help.  I had to be ready.  The man said that it looked pinkish.  Well, thankfully he turned out to be color blind.  The wheel turned out to look about like John's.  It's gorgeous, I bought it.  Thanks everybody!

Bryan

Thanks Everybody!  The wheel I have already is about the same color as John's and Austin's, and is mostly what I have seen in the past.  I have seen some examples with an orange tint.  Maybe this guy is color blind, I hope so.  I'll let you guys know how it turns out.  The wheel I have has a grand canyon crack, so maybe this one will turn out to be a good one.  Thanks for your replies, that was exactly the information I needed as to what mint or NOS wheels looked like.

Thanks,
Bryan
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / N34 Rosewood Question? on: July 18, 2014, 04:32:52 PM
I have the chance to buy a mint rosewood that has been in storage for more than 35 years.  My question is, how much variation can be in the color of the rosewood rim?  The owner says that the rim has a very distinct pinkish tint!  I was just curious if they were more of a pinkish - orange color when new?  All other factors of this wheel are correct to a N34 wheel.  I know there is NO chance that this is a repop!  I have not seen this wheel yet, but need to be able to buy when I have the chance.   Do they all need to look like the examples in Ed's steering wheel section?  JohnZ and Ed, please give your opinion.

Thanks,
Bryan

If you need black belts, I know of a few places that have complete belts and buckles, singles or sets.  Please email me and I will tell you the sources and locations.  My email is in my personal page, click bryan302.

The Parts Place in Chicago, and OER reproductions, and Heartbeat City.  Ebay is also full of them.  From what I have seen of them, they are close in appearance.  The examples that I have seen were more of a chrome finish.  I don't know if they make the original brush finish or not.
