 My 05C has a birth date of 5/6/68, seems odd to me. Any thoughts?

Sure. I believe I have photos of both. I can send them to you or post here. The files are on a drive at work and I have off tomorrow. Does Thursday work?

I have the chrome lever.
The throttle arm has hole but clip is not screwed to it.
Do you have a pic of yours?

Bc69 - The throttle clip is a different design. This attaches the ball chain to the throttle arm that runs up from the accelerator assembly. The arm has a hole located in it for a mounting screw to mount the clip for factory installed cruise. One clip wraps around while the other is only edge located. The other main difference is in the design of the transducer. The input location is different on the dealer transducers I have seen. This could have been a running change. The finish and overall appearance is the same.

A rare part is the turn signal arm. This was injection molded ABS and Chrome plated. The lack of structural ribbing on the part often led to them breaking just past the end of the steel arm due to fatigue. GM had a black plastic replacement part that used the same switch and connector that is more commonly seen on heavily driven cars.

I hope that helps.

Really does begin to sound more like a flow problem. Flush the system with the best product you can find, change the water pump and the thermostat. Check and/or change the cap - you need to run about 12-15 psi in the system to make it work properly. If no big improvement, I'd take the radiator out and replace with another known used clear radiator, or a cheap repop just to isolate the problem. Or, just core the old one like most of us are having to experience.

What does the coolant look like ? Dark colored, any foam in it ? Leaking head gaskets can cause hot spots/steam pockets like this. Oil clean ? Any coolant contamination ? Hoses collapsing ?

Bad flow across the radiator could also be a culprit, as we conjectured before. Bet the lower half is plugged - that's why the temp is so low in the bottom half.

One other thing - I witnessed a big block Chevelle do this once upon a time - turns out it was spun bearing (main), causing the engine to not only run hot, but choke down and die when it warmed up enough to start galling on the crank. Check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, and a mechanical temp gauge if you can. Just to make sure -

Regards, and good luck -

There should be a third choice to vote for. Buy a car that is in good cond.
I agree. How about buy an original rolling chassis, use your hood and doors, find some decent fenders. I also agree with Charley, that it would probably be worth more, and the original parts would fit better.

Absolutely, GM determined when a particular car was to be built based on their schedules, and their part availablilities and Fisher built it.  There wasn't really much on the fisher side of the plant that could result in a material shortage that wouldn't alos affect the GM side.  Maybe things like convertible and vinyl tops in certain colors, some interior peices, etc.  Most of fishers parts were sheetmetal stampings that were not specific to a certain vehicle, like a 302 engine, or an M22 transmission. I'm sure there were some things on the Fisher side that could delay a build, but most of them was probably on GMs side.

Hi just got a chance to check back in on this. That is very interesting how were you able to find that info Kurt? Anything you can share with me?
