Vette(s): 1969 427/390 Sport Coupe *Stored since 1984*
My alternator is not the original and I am trying determine what is the correct unit. By the Numbers says 1100833 for base 427 but also says 1100881 "2nd Production". I have found either part for sale with date code that corresponds to my car (date code 8K?? for Nov 68, my engine was assembled Jan 69). Anybody know what "2nd Production" means and better still which is the correct alternator for a 69 427-390 w/o A/C that was built Feb 69 and has engine assy dated Jan 69? Thanks for your comments.
The 1969 Corvette build cycle was from September 1968 until December 1969. One of the longest build cycles for a US car.

The early/late changeover was at approximately SN#18,744 in March 1969. A good rule of thumb is to check the vacuum actuator located on the right side of the firewall. The actuator was changed from the "can" shape on the early 69s to the "double pie plates" shape on the late 69s. This is not always accurate because some of the late 69s have the "can." Many of the parts changed during production, and early and late does not necessarily have anything to do with when the car was built. Even worse, some of the very early 69s used parts leftover from the 68 run, and some of the late 69s have parts that were supposed to be on the 70s.
