As a side note, the button on your gage is round which in itself is very interesting. Does your other L35 have the same gage?
Do the measurements I show for 3925520 come close to the ones on your gage?
L78 steve,
Yellow button was used on 68 69 gages.

Looking at page L35 A4 in 67 AIM it is very confusing. Note that there was a revision in 2-8-67 of the Gage ASM from 3902339 to 3925520 and in 3-3-67 the Gage (stick) from 3860316 to Huh? . No part # shown but  it had a purple identification code ( view A ). This is very confusing until you look at the P&A
69 P&A shows 3902399 as a stick # used in 67 ,  17 15/32 between full and seal, 17 39/32 (miss print 29/32) between add and seal, not sure about this stick (gage) numbers do not add up. The 69 P&A  also shows 3925520 as stick (gage)  used in 67, 17 13/32 between full and seal, 18 1/2 between add and seal.
Going to the 67 AIM I realized that item 4 was not an asm . but the actual Gage (stick) that was used. Revision 1   2-8-67 changed 3902339 ( do not know the identification code color)to 3925520 with purple color code. The tube 3899640 remained the same until 68 when the gage and tube where changed because of RPO C60. Have know idea what revision 2  3-3-67 is referring to
Mike I believe your gage to be correct and the button has faded from purple to pink over time. Blue and red = purple and fades to light red.

I picked up a 3931067 intake last night. The intake date code is A319. Jan 31, 69. Would that be too early to be "correct" for a 7/28/69 CJF 396?

It's not impossible, but it's certainly not "typical" to have an intake that pre-dates its usage by seven months.
Thanks John.

Is there a part number on that stick?

As a general rule, assembly line dipsticks didn't have a part number on them, but some Service replacements did.

I have no idea whether the bodies were cowl-tagged at Plant 21 or later at Fisher-Norwood, or both (re-tagged later); the fact that nobody seems to know anything about the Camaro Pilot process at Plant 21 or Fisher-Norwood shows the virtually nonexistent communication between Chevrolet and Fisher Body at the working level. Our nuclear submarine program should have had security that good.  Grin

Here's a personal example of the working-level relationship between the two Divisions. When I was a Production Foreman at Chevrolet-Willow Run in 1964, my Towveyor line had at least one full line stop a day for baked sealer in a weld nut preventing installation of an engine mount bolt. After complaining about it many times to our Chevrolet Inspection Department with no results, I took it upon myself to go "through the wall" to the Fisher Paint Shop to find the source of the problem. I found my way to the Sealer Deck, and to the operator who was occasionally wiping off his sealer brush on my weld nut; I described to him the line-stop problem that caused, and asked if he could wipe off his brush elsewhere. He understood, and said he could do that, no problem. I thanked him, and headed back toward the Chevrolet side, pleased that I had solved this apparently unsolvable problem with ten minutes' work.

About the time I found the door back to the stairs to Chevrolet, I was accosted by the Fisher Body Paint Shop Superintendent, who was obviously madder than hell - he demanded to know what I was doing up there, and I told him I had just solved a line-stop problem. He said, "Don't you know you're not allowed on this side of the plant? You don't belong here, and you don't talk to any of my people - all you Chevrolet a**holes need to know is the body comes up here raw and goes back down shiny, and what happens inbetween is none of your damn business - now get the hell out of my Paint Shop, and don't come back."

As I walked back to my line, I wondered how ANY problems got solved between Chevrolet and Fisher Body. About an hour later, the Chevrolet Production Manager (essentially the Chevrolet assistant Plant Manager) showed up and tore me a new one over being caught on the Fisher side of the plant, and said he'd fire me if it happened again. That philosophy is why nobody at Chevrolet-Norwood knows anything about the Fisher Body-Norwood portion of the Camaro Pilot program.  Embarrassed

Those are dated 3/67.
My bad - DF rims. I had 7" on the brain when I made the post.  Roll Eyes
Still, I think the amount of over spray onto the rim OD would be highly variable, only the over spray onto the rear of the rim would have any consistency to it.

In MI, you can run year of production plates for a lifetime for a 1-time fee. Easy choice for me....
That's what I'll be doing for my 69. You don't want to know what the 69 396 plate is on for now... It's my DD and tow vehicle.
And that's pretty pitiful in Washington state. I get what they're trying to do, but seriously, no 1969 on a 69 car?
