Marty, I've got my 12B Norwood car with A/C. Engine build is 11/21 and it has its original 61a alternator. I'll post the stamp info when I get a chance.

Excellent news John, thanks!

Anymore '69 early build A/C L48 owners that can help?

Oops, I think I lost sight of the original question on this thread. I need to inspect the zeros for a light stamp? Be right back...

Sorry about the hassle, but yup on inspecting the stamp. ;)

Also, just want to make sure I learned my alphabet; 8L27 = Nov. 27, 1968? The letter "I" wasn't used, correct?

Ok, the first zero is light but you can still see the full circle. The second zero is slightly deeper but not as deep as the rest of the digits.

From what I hear it's difficult to find an alternator from this time period that is a 10 or even a 7 or 8. Guess these things were used in several GM autos with the wrong brackets so in addition to weak stamps many were also banged up. 3 issues to deal with; legit dates that are legible and a housing that isn't banged up.

So far this is what I've been able to come up with;
   John's; 3rd 0 week but legible
   3rd 0 gone & housing banged up
   3rd 0 weak & housing banged up
   Housing great but 1st 0 completely gone

I'm following up on one lead that I got yesterday for a company that might have what I need. If anyone else has any leads please let me know. I know I'm a PITA but I know the one I'm looking for is out there somewhere.  ???

Thanks John!

I had my '68 alternator rebuilt and restored by John Pirkle in Auguta. GA. You can Google his name. It was $150.00 (about 4 years ago), and it looked very nice, what was plated was replated, date coded diodes included. Very satisfied with it.
I looked at some of my cores, and noticed 1102843 (yes,"2" as stamped; application?) and 1100843 and the 1st "0" is a bit fainter than the 2nd. possibly slightly smaller also. Dates are A 69 and B 69.

I wouldn't get too worked-up over minor stamping variations; Delco made those distributors at 1600 per hour (one every two seconds) spread across several lines.

Hi John,
 Was this a random daily occurrence or scheduled batch runs based on inventory levels and rate of consumption?

So what about this one? Is it a keeper (1st 0)? It can't get much better date wise for a 12A build.

Marty,  Were there no 843's made in Nov. (L) ? The "K" you have pictured is a Oct. build if I'm correct.
