Proper engine decals location
« on: April 25, 2016, 03:11:08 PM »
I just my complete engine/engine bay rebuilt and I'm now ready to install the decals, back to original state.

I do have few questions, maybe some pictures would be appreciated.

I bought a complete kit for my engine (LM-1 350/255) from heartbeat, and I'm wondering if it's the best kit ? Maybe there's few other decals I should buy separately elsewhere?

Now I'm wondering about the locations for 3 specific decals:

1-The brake booster tag: where should it be installed, exactly ? Any pictures ?
2-The pollution/exhaust emissions decals: on most of the car I see, they were directly located on the radiator top bar (or rack, not sure about the proper name of it). On my car, there's few plastic clip from under, so there's not enough room to stick the two decal. Anyway those two decals are too high to be stuck on this support. Maybe there's a better place to order those decal and they have the right size ? For now I stick them directly on the fan shroud, is ut correct ?

The original emissions/tuneup sticker on my car is located on top of the radiator support bar, just to the right (drivers side) of center.  It is NOT correct on the fan shroud.

Like Gary said, proper placement of the emissions decal is on the radiator support like this:

Ok, that's what I taugh, but look at the pictures I took of my radiator bracket, compare to the size of both decals, and they can't fit in there !

It is correct to have the labels on the fan shroud if you have Air Conditioning, as the hood seal gets in the way of the labels in their normal location.  The cores support above is drilled for the A/C seal retainers.

These pics are of my unrestored original '68 coupe. The emissions decal is 1 1/4" wide.

In fact, I believe the holes are made to secure the vacuum hose for the right headlamp cover. This hose is routed underneath the radiator support, using some plastic retainers.

Also I'm sure the replica decals are slightly bigger than the original ones....

Where did you bought yours ?

My original L48 with A/C decal is on the shroud. There is a rubber seal that should be on top of the core support and a foam seal between the radiator and the core support if it has A/C.

In addition of the Z22 kit, I do have also the A/C from the factory installed on mine....

What about the other decals ? Anybody has picture of their setup to show. It's hard to see pictures about that and originality through the web....

1. You are missing the AC seal that goes on top of the core support.
2. No first gen ever used that thermostat decal.
3. Tune-up decal is fine on the shroud since you have AC.

Are you sure about #2 Kurt?

My Z being original in that area definitely had 2 decals on the core support.  It had the engine decal on the driver side as you would normally see.  On the passenger side mine has what I assume would have been some sort of coolant decal since it was close to the radiator fill.  However it was too deteriorated to make out what it might have been.

Is there another known decal on that side for early Norwood Z's?

Kurt, do you have a picture of this AC seal ? I've seen pictures of many Camaro with AC equipped, but never notice this seal....

Does this seal available from repro ?

Kurt, I've found a repro seal on heartbeat finally, but would appreciated to see a picture of it, once installed.

Also about the tire pressure driver door decal, if my car was originally equipped with F70-14 Redline tire, which one should I buy ?

This one ?

Great, thanks for the picture Dale. Can you tell me if the sticker on the shroud is an original one ? If yes, which one is it ?
