My lid is not with me but I think it had wording around each bubble. I found this one. Seen some vendors have pictured one as correct for a 69z. Read a thread where both may have been used. Any opinions?

I, too, have read about more than one cover for 69. I cannot prove that my cap is, in fact, "born with", but I have every reason to believe it is, as the orig. master cylinder is on the car (off now) 12B Nor. Bill, here goes:
Will also comment on the cap you picture Bill, I understand that there was no DOT specification in 69, so that cap would be wrong,IMO.

Maybe we could get some of guys to chime in that have known original caps. I have been looking for one myself I would like to make sure it's right. Also was there only one cap used through out the production year? (69)

Here is my original cap, it was replated when I had my booster rebuilt by Grigori...
I can take a 'straight on' photo to capture all the textual information if need be...

My original cap looks exactly like Gary's, word for word and number for number. Just has not been re-plated so not as pretty Smiley

FYI those pits and scratches can be worked out with time and patience.

Before


After - Notice that this is the style like the one you posted Bill.

Ko-lek-tor's looks like a 67 cap.

My early 1969 11D (68) SS/RS was born with the same cap that  ko-lek-tor has posted.  I believe the caps were an early vs. late thing.  Can't swear to a changeover date, but, I know mine is original.

My X77 01C Z's cap looks like ko-lek-tor's, no DOT, no J spec. Could not get resolution tonight, will try for pic tomorrow (cap is unrestored, pretty crusty).

My 68 cap also looks like the one ko-lek-tor posted. I bought the master cylinder with a July 68 booster. Martin

As a suggestion, if the cover you have is pitted, instead of getting one with surface pits redone, you can buy an exact repro (shape and stampings) for around $25 from many Corvette parts places. Outside from correct fonts there are no date codes to worry about.
There are two type of repros I have seen where it comes to the 4 vent holes on the sides of the cover under the bail wire. Some have the vent punches facing out and others have it facing inside. I have only seen inside facing vents (like those shown by ko-lek-tor) and those on my 67's.
  The place that has correct looking caps with the inside facing vents: http://www.westcoastcorvette.com/

Plating shops can strip it off for you, and possibly they can replate it as you like..  I don't think brake fluid will remove chrome..  (but I was wrong once before.. at least.. ) Smiley
