Here's a few measurements for you Tim...

Lynn,

Your 1  70 tank was from the first week of August...

Lynn, not all government workers are bad.

The coding changed and for your tank the decode was week one of the 1970 model year, not the calendar year. Obviously the Camaro model year for 69 was extended - but the gas tank codes changed.

What I meant was - is there any other damage on the underside of the car that might suggest a failure?

A couple of questions -
Date of assembly of your motor?
what is the foundry of your block? T or V
would the intake manifold have had an oil fill?

I will have other questions later

I was not aware of the gas tank date thread. Thanks Austin.

Lynn, there could still have been a failure though. Any other signs of that? Dents or signs of repair?

Again we need more data from this time. I have not run across anything unusual from the axle plants for full size or Chevelles. Yet.
No problem, And I agree it would be nice to find some more cars from this time frame. I don't see to many 08A, or July cars, but I know they are out there.

Kurt.  You can add my 08A car to the mix.   Tank was dated 1 70.   I thought it was a replacement tank under warranty, as I did not know they started dating for 70 in Aug.

I no longer have the tank.  One of my nephews decided to jack the car up by the gas tank back in the late 80's.   He was about 10 years old at the time.

I did pressurize the tank to pop the dent out, and it wasn't leaking, but it was just too ugly.   I gave it to a local guy who was building a 69 on a tight budget and needed a tank.

I had no idea that tanks were dated as much as 4 months after the car build.  Will have too look for that thread.  Makes no sense.   Perhaps a government worker was put in charge of gas tank dating.

Maintenance / Re: Quadrajet Float Bowl: Is anything not repairable?

I had the original carb sent to be restored on a 72 455 H/O trans am and somewhere it its past the frt mounting bolts were tightened too much and warped the top and main body beyond repair :( it was visable when you looked but I didnt till after was returned they replaced the main body and it did run alot better afterwards dropped .5 in the 1/8. I always wondered how you could do that? 72 was the last year for factory aluminum manifolds I would of thought threads would of pulled before that happened
