Of I look at the picture of the motor and enlarge it a bit , by the windshield washer resevoir there are two holes in the metal.  Could that be where the headlight vacume was mounted?  Would there be a switch in the car somewhere that I can check.

I will be down to see the car tomorrow.

Also, when I look at the picture fro the side, the wheel wells have a chrome strip.  Isn't that RS accenting?

I see nothing under the hood that is evidence or suggests this car having OE RS including the washer reservoir is in the wrong location.
The headlight switch should have vacuum hose connections.
Wheel well bright work is evidence of the style trim option that was also part of the RS option, but does not exclusively point to an RS equipped car

Another question is, did the quarter panels come from the suppliers with the rear holes already punched and then the factory closed the hole if it did'nt get the rear option?  My friend's D80 car did not get the rear antenna option of course, but running my finger under the bottom of the quarter inside the trunk, I can feel where the punched hole was.
No

Originality / Re: Small Block Spark Plug Wire Retainers Painted Black?
« Last post by BillG on January 15, 2017, 09:54:06 PM »
My understanding has been, the wire retainers were on the engine prior to painting... on the L48.  So, they got painted orange along with the rest of the engine.

Restoration / Re: Eaton CV Fan Clutch Restroation Question
« Last post by z28z11 on January 15, 2017, 09:33:45 PM »
Pic of my original Eaton clutch, my X77 is an 01C build.

Bad part - I spray bombed the fan and clutch black in '75 during a rebuild - thought at the time it looked better, plus I couldn't foresee the stamps and surface finish being as important then as it is today. My bad -

Good part - the paint kept the surface and the stamping intact as you see it today. I got curious about the date coding a while back during one of our other threads, scraped the paint off with a fingernail and discovered the Eaton, CV and date stamps intact (thank goodness). Now, if I could just figure out how to remove the rest of the paint without wearing all of my fingernails to the quick, and taking a month to do it -

Regards,
Steve

General Discussion / Re: 1969 M22 breakdown of Quantities

There are reasons to believe the 837 M22 L78 number includes COPOs. Internally, COPO build orders mention L78; it is listed on Canadian COPO documentation.  COPOs 9560 & 9561 were not RPO and didn’t exist for statistical purposes. When the YTD totals were rolled up all COPO data was likely assigned to L78. When I apply what is known about production totals [and factoring October] it looks like this:

L78 – 690
COPO – 178
Total SHP BB - 867
Z/28 – 1,250
Total M22 – 2,117

The trans production number that has been long thought to be FUBAR is the M21 total of 26,501. There is no way to get anywhere near that number; the total production for all cars that could have had an M21 is 28,159. Subtracting 2,117 M22s leaves 26,042. An M20 is not uncommon in a Z/28; a reasonable estimate is 21%. It was also available for all big blocks. While rare in COPOs there have been a few documented. Also, there were 3,692 automatic big blocks built, most probably L34 & L35. I have seen a number of documented M40 L78s. 30 of Yenkos L72 Camaros were automatic as were 22 ZL1s. Of the 1,015 Camaro L72 engines built 193 [19%] were MO coded for an automatic. For these purposes I estimated total COPO production at 950. When all this is factored M21 production comes in at 18,849.

The 2117 number is not just a CRG number, it is posted in multiple sources and it had to come from Chevrolet or GM records at some point.

So any breakdown of the M20, M21, M22 numbers for the 427 cars?

The 73 is the difference between the end of Sept numbers for M22 of 2,044 compared with the final M22 totals of 2117 provided on the CRG option PDF list.
