4 piston caliper date code ?
« on: January 23, 2014, 10:34:41 PM »
Sort of an old topic ,but looking for an answer.

I spoke with Lone Star a few months ago and questioned casting numbers/date codes ? Was told this is a common mistake and no real date code exists like on a carb/alternator etc.. I know a very reputable company , and who I plan to use by either purchasing outright, or sending a set of cores in. I imagine considering they were only used in 67-68 a set for my Z would be correct ?

I no longer have a '67/68, so if someone has use for this RH inner half caliper (NOS), let me know.. offer me something for my '69 for it?? :)   I obtained this in the mid 70's along with a pile of NOS parts.. unfortunately this single half was the only Camaro item.   It has casting number 5455530 with date code 304.

Mine got "lost" at the speed shop over 20 years ago--is what it is. I was switching to single pistons for several reasons at the time. Took them in with the intensions of having them rebuilt and than shelf--still have the pads...
