Another view of front pad stamp.. Can somebody PLEASE tell me if all these stamps are original correct GM, including all the previous above. Do all the casting and dates line up correct?.. Danny

I can't say for sure on the engine stamp due to the corrosion, but I think it is probably OK.  Transmission and rear axle look good.  I did not look at every other component, but LOTS of original stuff there.

Oh and I think the casting dates looked fine too.  You might want to try to summarize them and put them all into one post.

I think your dates, codes, stamps, etc..  are all outstanding Danny....    That's a VERY original car..    it just needs to be Preserved, and maintained...  and use one of those discussed chemicals to remove the rust spots without removing the remaining paint.. :)

Gary, Thanx... I just know this was a big investment for my girl. And I wanna make sure it is all ok. I spent a lot of time getting info before the purchase, but I am no expert, that's for sure.

  Speaking of preserving... Here is a couple more paint work shots. LOT'S of elbow grease. And it is a fine line, you gotta pay attention while scrubbing. Going to use soaked paper towels with evaporust so I don't have to scrub THE WHOLE CAR! Just don't have the strength. Here is the top of the left fender complete and waxed with eagle one..... Danny

Thanx, I appreciate that. There is just no way I can do it all by hand. Maybe, but it would take all thru winter.. :( :(   And of course I am excited and want it done.
 
   Here below is a picture of the front pad with letters and numbers filled with soap stone to better show if these are original correct GM font and style stampings... Danny

That really works to show off the numbers. I know I did something similar a while back with plaster of paris, and that worked well also.

Yes Jimmy, this is just soap stone. And then I lightly blow and take my finger and get rid of the excess. Then I edit the picture extensively of course to get that dark surface look. That really makes the numbers stand out.
 OK, I am done for now, no more pictures... Danny

Hey, I'm looking for the bolt that holds the choke to the manifold.  Lost mine somewhere in the teardown.  Do you know what size and thread, headmark etc?  The AIM just says production bolt.  Thanks.

Wow! Car is looking good! Can't wait to see it when you get finished with the "paint" work. Keep it up  ;D

I read somewhere that you HAVE to have something in the top of the smog pump, or it will keep pumping into the manifolds and this is NOT good. Some kind of valve? True? What goes in this hole? Can I buy one? Can I run the engine without the belt attached to the pump? ... Danny
