Positraction tag
« on: January 23, 2020, 01:19:47 AM »
Hi,
What colour is an original, assembly line correct positraction tag for a 1969 Z28? Is it red or orange?
Thanks, Terry

Note the period after DIFF.  Some repos don't have the period.

Is the hole diameter in the tag for the fill plug the same for all 3 years? I recall a similar discussion (perhaps relating to Corvettes?) which suggested a transition in plug size around 1967.

Tim, THIS is the thread you're probably referring to.
