First Gen Camaro radiator dates
« on: July 13, 2016, 01:32:51 AM »
Cook and I tried to learn something about dating of 1969 radiators over on another site, but all we got was insulted by an arrogant member.
What started the debate was a 69 Z radiator with a 'K' date. A radiator dated 'K'  was said to be an October radiator by one and November by another. When a 'M' dated radiator picture was produced, the November guy insisted he was still right and insisted that 'I" was used for September and he had 2 70 radiators as proof that 'I' was used.
Are there any 'I' dated radiators out there to prove that letter was used on 69 radiators?
Anyone here have a 70 radiator with an 'I' date?
Can it be said that the 'M' dated example is proof that an 'I ' was not used in at least 69?

I have a K date radiator out of a 10D car (oct of 68). It is not a Z  just a 2 core sb auto Radiator.

Thanks guys.  Unless there is already one of these started then Im gonna start a spreadsheet to keep this info in some type of order.  Hopefully more will chime in with their info.  This is what I would like to record and if someone thinks we need more info then please speak up.

Can't say that I have personally seen an I dated radiator in a First Gen Camaro. 

Exactly why I wanted to create a spreadsheet..  "Sometimes it takes more than google search to find answers to alot of technical questions."  Which didnt work for me in this case..    ::)

Looking at data, rads are typical stamped dates - no I.

I am aware and understand Kurt but this has become more of a personal thing for me now.. ;)  Just would like to have the info of rads vs build dates of the cars..  Never hurts to collect data. 8)


I would like to add all 3 years not just 69 so please if others wouldn't mind adding their info that would be great.  Thanks!

Another data base? Look at you (Darrell's Research Group), Just kidding bro. I think it would help to have Radiator list as well. Sounds like a new thread topic could be started, similar to the gas tank post. Each guy could post the build date of their car, and the date on the radiator. I would think it would be a good thread, because any first get owner could post if he had the original, and/or figure out if it was date correct, or had been replaced.

You may want to post a pic of where to find the date on the radiator. (similar to the gas tank thread)

Thats kinda the purpose of this thread although it has slightly evolved..  People can see the pic above for the location of the stamping of the date.  If someone wants to move this to the Research Topics & Reports Section (I do not have access to start new threads) and delete the unneeded stuff that is fine with me.

Good start, one recommendation would be to put them in order starting with the earliest 67, like the gas tank info. Easier to read that way. thanks Darrell

Wouldn't a radiator date code (J) be a little late for a 06A Built car?

Good question. But probably not too late for a bb 4spd w/air, and then by this date, COPO. Has a manual trans bb ever been documented with ac would probably be a better question?

Just my thoughts, but I will defer to those with experience.

So that would be "J" of 68?
So the metal tag is how you distinguish between 68 and 69 radiators?

Darrell, I am familiar with the CRG page, what I don't see addressed is how do you tell a late 68 radiator for a early 69 like Jimmy V, vs the same "F,G,H" date for a late 69 built Camaro. I didn't see a metal tag in his pic to help with identifying.

So my question is since there isn't a early production or late production distinction according to the chart, could you in fact use Jimmy V's dated radiator for a early 69 Z, and a late 69Z and it would be correct still?

This not the original radiator for the car. This radiator is original I purchased for car 15 years ago to replace the incorrect s/b radiator that was in the car when purchased it.

Currently I cant say with a 100% certainty but until the data reveals something different my gut says yes at this point.. 

This not the original radiator for the car. This radiator is original I purchased for car 15 years ago to replace the incorrect s/b radiator that was in the car when purchased it.

Thanks for clearing this up be unfortunately Ill have to have a question mark by your info as its not the original one for your car.

Come on guys, I know there are more of you who can contribute. 67,68,69, ALL data needed. List date of radiator and type of radiator (tank codes) and build date and year of car. Radiator MUST be ORIGINAL to the CAR.
I have provided 4 original Harrison radiators to 4 original cars, surely others have one if not more.
Any 'I' dated radiators??

1967 L48 with C60 and M35, LOS build of 11B estimated to be about 11/15/66 (K250 Fisher Body scheduling code), UK tag, OG and HI tanks with a date of K between the O and G.  Also has an odd BG small tag along the HI tank which we could not determine its meaning, appears to be some sort of Harrison plant code.

Kurt, that BG tag might be a broken clip that the overflow hose clips into. I have a BG tag too and also a AG clip for an overflow hose.
Sorry I can't help on the original radiator. My original RH tank was replaced. I do have a correct replacement radiator with an M date.

Mine has original radiator, and I don't recall the date off hand.  Doubt I could get at it well enough to read now since it's in the car.

I would be interested in knowing if the embossed letter for the date is the same for example, a Sept 1968 radiator versus a Sept 1969 radiator.

I still think there may be a way to make Darrell's sheet a Google doc and then be able to display it in a post. Any updates would be reflect in the post so it would always be the most up-to-date version.

I have an original, maybe even for my car but not known 100%.  It's an E or F.  Since mine was a late May, I think I've even seen an F on some.
