I know I will have more questions and possibly would like to invite myself on a field trip.  ;)

Grill is all gray, with black trim around the inside edge. I believe all '68's have gray grills. Some aftermarket grills are black, and incorrect... Danny

Hmm.  I thought this car was an RS I guess.  Just double checked and realized its not.  My question was as if it was an RS.  Thanks for the reply Danny.

Does this car have an all black grill or a chrome accent grill?

Thanks

Isnt there a spacer suppose to go on the lower alternator mount bolt? See the space there? I don't have a manual to check it but maybe someone can chime in here about it

Scot

If you mean here, that black sleeve is the spacer.  The alternator is spaced as far forward as is can go, but needs to go another 1/4" for belt alignment.

Here is the lower mount Iím using.   Everything looks like it needs to move forward 1/4Ē to line up with the water pump and crank pulleys. There is enough meat in the bracket to slot the holes and make it up.

Thanks guys. John that is a great old photo.

I was able to trace the proper arch from enlarged photos of Chickís car, Dave Bís blue one and some original bracket sets and use my press to re-arch mine. Fits a lot better now and clears the blades.   Alt is a mock up unit.

Shipped out today USPS Priority!  ;D  Danny

Danny,
The brace arrived. Awesome packaging by the way. :)

I ran it thru the sandblaster and welded up the hole. Next, grind and finish. Fit perfectly. Thanks a million for your assistance with our Z.

I found it!!! It has a small hole in it? Maybe got shorted out and took a chunk out while the battery was still connected. Weld it real quick, grind it down and repaint.
Or just use as is...Already boxed it up and it's ready to ship. PM me your address and I'll send it to ya.  ;)  Danny

Excellent Danny. Thanks.

D&R

Thanks for the response.  Have you used that exact one, or know a car that has it? 


Bill, is the orange one original? Normally sold in pairs! Where did you purchase the black one? D&R, Heartbeat and others probably sell what is coming from a central supplier. The repro's stamped with GT as far as I know work fine.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Camaro-67-68-Z28-Alternator-Brackets-2-pc-set-adjuster-brackets/371905775814?fits=Year%3A1968%7CSubmodel%3AZ28&hash=item56974fc8c6:g:CmUAAOSwc2FaSDkX

I bought the pair, stamped GT from T/A Performance in Ca last year.   I was trying to figure out if itís maybe the geometry of The whole set up, including the lower mount, but I see that I have the very same headers and lower mount as you do, so the elevation of the alternator is probably ok.

Well, my aftermarket reproduction brace appears to be no where near accurate.  Not enough arch so it gets into the fan blades.  Who makes one that is correct?

Thanks,
Bill
