Jim or Bryon, you might want to post this on the CHEVELLE WEB SITE.

There is a new section over on sYc for non Camaro orphans started by our own GM guru D.W. Cook. So put it up on there as well

Not a Camaro block. It's from a 1966 Chevelle produced at the Atlanta plant.

TO222EDH 6A127018 - is the stamped information.

I have never seen a chrome oil cap on anything other than a BB in a Camaro, Nova, Chevelle or Corvette and only on the sb Z28 Camaro and Corvette.


Dont forget about the L79.  Im referring to 67-9..  You may mean just 69.

To call it an "option" accertains it could be ordered. An example you use of the Chevelle (and, I'll add, full size models), not having bright accents, implies that one could order the accents if desired. That was not the case. The engine packages either had or did not have these accents depending on the model car the engine was installed. Not all L48 (300hp) engines were created equal. That has been discussed on this site and I have owned and pulled enough of these engines, BITD, to know that only the Camaro/ Nova had "accents" that consisted of a chrome air cleaner lid and a chrome air cleaner lid ONLY regarding the 69 and 70 model years that I sought at the time. The full size L48s, and this is not a hard and fast rule, did not have 4 bolt mains either. Other than that, these engines, no matter what installed in, were the same.

To further clarify, I have never seen a 69 Chevy L48 engine with a factory chrome oil cap. I have never seen a chrome oil cap on anything other than a BB in a Camaro, Nova, Chevelle or Corvette and only on the sb Z28 Camaro and Corvette.

I haven't used them, but several people I know have got CHQ's rocker mouldings and said they fit well and are very reasonably priced compared to NOS GM.

Originality / Re: Identifying 3961398 Oil Pan, 1969 302 Production line?
« Last post by Bryan302 on February 17, 2017, 06:29:46 AM »
When I saw that the P&A listed pn #3961398 as the 302 pan in the Feb. '69 time frame, I remembered Steve's NOS example of 3974251 being dated Feb. 1969 also.   This could be a time of change between the two, or they used both at the same time, etc.  I was hoping someone would have an NOS example of 3961398 or other parts catalogs such as Mitchell Manuals, etc. to have another listing of this pan.  GM didn't just stick this PN# in the manual, there has got to be something to this pan's existence.  It might just be the early to mid production line pan!! ??  It might not!  Let's see what can be found?

I don't think there's much disagreement. I've never seen a chrome oil cap on a 69 SS350. Yes on SS396.
Just documentation catching up to what they built.

And I take exception to your title. There never was an engine accent option. Engine accents were part of other packages.

From the factory, it probably had a Sept carb on it.
I'm saying what most cars would have come with. I'm not saying right or wrong. You can put on whatever date you want.

My 10B LOS 68 SS has a September 67 date on it  my 2 cents
Exhibit A.
