Re: Trying to find axle stamping on a Camaro 12 bolt..
No X cars till 69, no torque rods after 67, seems I KNOW so much these days about things that just ain t so...ha ha. I love this site with so many that are fact checkers and keep us armed to true accounts. I do thank you for correcting me when I'm in error. Did some digging thanks to buenmayor s post and found out I have a 67 12 bolt, cast C 31 7, code QL, a 3.31 non posi, that was assembled May 08 , 2nd shift by Detroit Gear. stamp 05 08 G2. I was told by PO it was the original rear and I believed he believed it was. I removed the series 4 Eaton posi unit and the ring and pinion are GM gears stamped with a late 67 date. Ovuously someone built this axle for some heavy hammering prior to.
X77, thank you much. My plain Jane 67 Camaro , 210 327, power glide , 10 bolt has no radias rod bracket. Obviously it did not need one......do you know when they were used....12 bolt big block cars or certain gear ratios used or high hp engine combos. My older drag racer friend had a shop out back I use to hang out with. I remember seeing several 68 Zs cars in there for work, all small block cars that had the radias rods , and just assumed they were factory.....now I know they were added..thanks again.
