***Wanted PICS of 69 Z Radiator Hose Markings***
« on: August 11, 2006, 06:39:40 AM »
I am notat all satisfied with the reproduction radiator hose markings. They are nowhere close to correct... it is actually funny how bad they are...
If anyone has photo's of NOS or Original Hoses I would greatly appreciate copies... if you have the hoses on hand and could take some photos with a ruler or tape measure showing the height or width of the characters I would appreciate it.

There were alignment stripes on some (yellow or Blue) I would appreciate photo's of the stripes as well.

I am going to make a stencil, stamp. or silk screen to replicate the markings... I am SOOOO tired of buying reproduction parts that are not right...why bother making them, I can buy incorrect stuff at the local autozone any day of the week AND it is alot cheaper.

Judging by the response on other boards quite a few guys feel the same way as I feel.
I may be busy repopping rad hoses...

Hay,

What's the part number for the hose?  I may be able to help...

Stay away from the repop crap unless you drive a ford, then it fits right in!!!

Here are the results of the 2 stamps I have made so far... does any one (JohnZ) know what I need to do as far as permission/licensing from GM in order to sell hoses with the stamps on them?

Thanks John, I have sent a request to them.
The 67-68 Z hose markings were taken from the photos of Jon Mello's survivor 67 Z hose.
I will keep everyone up to date with the results of the request to equity management...

Yeah...

I just got a set of upper and lower hoses from Rick's for a 69 SS, and the GM markings were pathetic....

I didn't have the heart to put them on....

Someone has been making correct looking hoses for the Corvettes for years.
The Camaro ones currently available are not even close to authentic.

Put me down for a few sets.  ;D

Exactly why I did some research and came up with the stamps...

Will do Jeff, I have submitted a request to the licensing company... let's see where it goes....

Good news  ;D I heard from EM and I am going through the process... I will let everyone know when everything is finalized... I will be doing upper and lowers for SB and BB 67-69 Camaro's to begin with. COPO's included. Next will be 70-73 SB uppers and lowers. I have the research done for all of the above listed hoses and will be submitting the Part#'s to the licensing company.

Lower is 3942561 SM

Anything you can help with would be greatly appreciated

Are those numbers exclusive to the z/28? I think those are also all small block for 69. My build sheet for my 69 has JR and SM in the boxes for heater hoses.

Jonesy you are correct the 69 hose is for all SB... the lower markings with the UY are for 67-68 Z exclusively...
