So is there a difference between a (68) 3874242, and a 3914753?

3874242 is the casting number for the base. It's not the part number for the mirror itself.

I hate those that seriously misrepresent cars.

Why can't people just be honest?

we had the unmachined hubs traveling down a belt conveyor at the foundry.  Hitting a ductile hub versus a cast iron hub yields a dramatic difference in "ring".  We always cast a gray cast iron "test" hub & painted it fluorescent orange so that it wouldn't get mixed up with the ductile hubs.  The test hub had to fail both the ring test and the ultrasonic test.  it's the wheel hub that you should be ringing, nut the rotor itself.

Isn't the gas line clip actually above that?

Its tight.  I do not recall much pain but I like to use the ratcheting box wrench.

Now up for sale is this beautiful 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 375 HP V8 Automatic show car in outstanding condition throughout!  This is a true RS/SS and to the best of our knowledge is a numbers matching original. 

This is an original RS/SS but we are not repping this as a Numbers Matching car although we believe it is.

Itsí original Holley Four Barrel Carb is included in the sale...

Car has factory A/C so no 375 hp engine. It was entered in the CRG db in 2002; was an L65/M38 at that time.

If one is made out of cast and the other is ductile, those hubs shouldn't sound the same on the "ring" test Mike.  Did the ring like a bell, or just have a dull thud?
  I used a light weight hammer and tried on different parts and they had a dull thud. I could get a slight ring from the rotors though but I figured it was due to the circular shape that would allow some resonance.
  Based on your experience with metals, if you had the rotor in your possession would you be able to tell what type of iron it is made from?

Hi Tim,

  The bolts are the same length but the threads don't match so I reused the original SAE grade 8 bolts.

Good to know they fit! Did you re-use the original SAE, or the new metric bolts to mount the repro rotor on the original hub? Just wondered if the bolts are the same length.

yes - gas clip on the rear bolt - you can see it in the first picture that I posted above.
