I am thinking about buying this booster. I once read that the early boosters had a smaller font than the later boosters. I can't find this information now and I don't know if the source was accurate. Does anyone have information or a link to font size information? Is there any problem with this code? If you perfer send me an e-mail instead.

Thank you. I did a search but did not find this thread. I need an early small font version so the search continues.

What's your appliation?  Power assist drum brakes used a different booster than disc.  In '69 the discs used booster 9204, drums used booster 3972.

See the following:  http://www.camaros.org/suspen.shtml#Brakes

Your fist pic has number 321 on the tab which doesn't agree with any usage listing for any 1st Gen Camaro in the CRG table shown in the above link.  The second pic with number 920 would be '69 power disc brake application (booster 9204). 

On the original booster from my '69 RS with power drum brakes, the front of the tab on the booster has 397 indicating the 3972 booster for power drum brakes.  On the back side of the tab is the julian date code of 013 (Jan 13, 1969).

321 is the back side, date code for the same booster. You can see the start of the 4 on the 9204 on the front. I did not buy it since it had the large font and was a very late 1969 model. I have disc front and drum rear brake system on a 12A dated cowl tag.

This booster was made in late 1968, not 1969.  I have added info on the fonts in the new 4th edition Camaro fact book,

I have a 68 Z with a build date of 02E out of LOS. The booster on it has a 8515 on the tab and a 292 on the other side. Any idea if this is correct for the car. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to our friends to the south of our border.

Could be, don't have enough data on LA cars to know for sure.  I know that my 11E 68 Z survivor has an 8515.  I suspect that it could be original to the car..........find more original cars in your area.

As always Jerry your expertise in these 302 cars shines through. Great pics on your site also of the new car.

Thanks Jerry,

Page 52 of your book. I got it backwards and thought the small font was early. Thanks again.

Will be in NJ Spring of 09, Atco and Englishtown for sure.  Might go to FL in March and try and set the record in D/Stock.  A lot depends on the economy for next year.
