Pic is likely over 400 kb, the system won't accept it. Bob is 100% correct - you couldn't have posted a better picture to verify the crank. The Z shaft is the only one produced with that kind of identifying notch. Nice flywheel, though - I wish mine was that pristine.

When I first looked at that pic I didn't notice the crank flange impression. Man, it is so obvious what that flywheel was attached to now that is see it. Great pic.

Well that picture is a flywheel, and it is not specific to the 302.  Had lots of applications.

I think he's pointing out the impression on the flywheel that was left by the crankshaft. The notch is exclusive to the 302 if I'm not mistaken. You can see a picture for reference HERE that John posted in another thread.

That notch is NOT, I repeat NOT exclusive to the 302.  Some 283s also had it, as noted in the thread above.  Here is the link.

Larry, I am not trying to cast doubt on it being a 302.  Just playing "devils advocate" in this case.  Somebody has to once in a while.

But I am confused on the redline of the original tach picture you posted.  It should be 6000.

Camaros didn't come with the 283. But some 283's came with the notched crank

Seeing that you're both in OH, I'd guess that the cars were ordered at the same dealer. May have similar options (or may not).

Several on the Pilots in 1967 were 283 equipped.

I have been out of town since last Thursday so I'm catching up on here. Went to the Charlotte Autofair. Been attending for the past 26 years.

Our body numbers are two numbers apart but our VIN #'s are 5,925 #'s apart. Interesting.

Picture is 42.1kb, I have resized it several times. Going to try and post it again with this reply.

Looks like the can be attached now. Same pic that I tried to post last week, same size too.

As for the tach, not saying it was original to the car, just that it was in the car when I bought it.

Thanks,

Larry

Maybe, but no saleable units were made /sold in the US with 283's.

Our body numbers are two numbers apart but our VIN #'s are 5,925 #'s apart. Interesting.
Body #'s in 69 are order confirmation numbers. Meaning the orders were placed right after each other. If a dealer ordered several vehicles at the same time, the numbers may be consecutive.

My car is black. There are a couple of pictures of it on the first page of this thread.
