I will look into that thank you. I did some reading  (team camaro ) this afternoon and it said one of the wires going to the starter was wrapped. I need to look again  but as much as was on mine, I thought it might be more than just one wire.

I work in the Motor rewind  (NAVY) industry. That tape looks like. Cambric Tape
Yellow, varnish coated cotton cloth 2510: no adhesive; 2520: adhesive

When working on a 67/68 rear harness I use the tapes offered by the Vette suppliers, they have a 3/4" dark cotton tape w/o adhesive that works perfectly.

Summit even offers it at a affordable price.

Mild Modifications / Re: 67 Power Steering Pump bolts and spacers

The AIM does not tell you what size bolts to use. I have a Big Block and I am trying to mount the Pwr Steering pump bracket. Yes it shows you how and where but not bolt sizes, those are coded with a part number. I am trying to find out the bolt sizes and none of the mounting kits list the sizes of the bolts. Just part numbers and the letter code on the bolt. I would rather go to Ace and buy the good bolts then some re-pop dealer who wants $25 for a set of fakes or NOS which I don't need because its not a concours vehicle.

William:  Likewise, incredible information insight and very much appreciated.  Challenging to the dealer / sales individual is an understatement, without seeing the information it is amazing that the customer actually got what they ordered. This must have been also true / applicable for ALL Chevrolet or even GM product.

Had a color change from FG to burgundy, so it will be no help on the sticker issue.  BDY number 103834

My car's history is a complete dead end for anything prior to my brother purchasing in 1975.   He was only 15.   The car was sitting behind a repair shop when he bought it from the business owner.   No one remembers the name of the business.  Years ago I even tracked down the former owner of the building.   Turned out to be a retired judge.  I was able to find him in the 90's.   He  had no recollection of who the tenant was in 75, and told me he had multiple tenants during the 70's but kept no records.
That was my first dead end.   The second one was the Tax Commission "losing" any record of the car prior to my ownership.   They don't even have a record of my brother owning it for that year (I traded for it in 1976).    It really doesn't matter to me if it is the original rear or not.  But.... would be nice to know.

Maybe as a testament to how much the car was used? or for a original motor, maybe to indicate that a rebuild wasn't neccessary.

So it sounds like there wasn't any major damage, and its possible your rear end is original to the car. When you purchased the car did they give you any history about the car, or do you by chance still keep in contact with anyone that used to own it? You said your car has been kind of a local car for a while, maybe there are others familiar with your cars history? I am just trying to think of some different ways to figure it out

I guess I incorrectly assumed that Berry's white Z was an unrestored car.   I have the earlier version of Jerry's book, and IIRC (big if) it just refers to it as a 5000 mile Z.  Don't know why you would restore a 5000 mile car.   But then, mine had only 26000 on it and if DEFINITELY needed restoring.  It had been rode hard and put up wet.
Personally, I don't know that the mileage makes much difference once a car is restored, other than mileage since restoration.

Weak area. Someone may of reinforced OR repaired. Welds passenger and driver's side ? front and rear? Beads laying like a roll of times or nasty scar.
Sort of joking, but reason I ask, uniform work may lead to some indication of "beefing" it up. Single nasty " scar" might point to repair. Just speculating having no knowledge of your car's prior use. Correct in assuming no leaks?

Post a pic, probably get a few answers ASAP.
