Ok, so you say it's a poor assumption that there were 4 suppliers then you state there were 4 suppliers.

I'm out.

Well, we already know there was more than one style used. Square and trapezoid. The 3841913 is an older number, probably released in the early 1960's. There's no history on that part number in any of the P&A's, so I can't comment on it. The 3909148 was ONLY used on the 69 Camaro, but some of the jacks for the 67 and 68 Camaro were used on other models and even divisions as well!

3909107 - 1867 & 1968 Camaro only

3909108 - 1967 & 1968 Camaro, 1967 Nova & Chevelle (except station wagons & El Caminos) and 1965 & 1966 Buick 30-4000 models (Note that both the November, 1968 P&A 691A and the February, 1969 P&A 30 also show this jack being used in 1967-1969 Camaros although it's not shown in the 1969 AIM)

3909109 - 1967 Camaro only

3909113 - 1967 & 1968 Camaro only

3927456 - No history on this part

3841913 - No history on this part

3909148 - 1969 Camaro only

The load rests are a completely different story! There are several versions used on a ton of different cars and trucks!

As with most components, there was probably more than one supplier.

Yep.

In 67 there were 4 jacks listed in the AIM, therefore 4 suppliers:

3909107
3909108
3909109
3909113

In 68 there were again 4 jacks listed in the AIM, so again, 4 different suppliers:

3909107
3909108
3909113
3927456

In 69 they cut it down to 2 jacks, so 2 suppliers:

3841913
3909148

1973 was the first model year for the CAMARO. I don't know about other models.

OH!! You mean THESE things (see below). Yes, 1973 was the first model year for these.

I'm not sure I understand your question, but if you're referring to the package tray, it's just cardboard. No jute backing. If you're referring to the speakers themselves, they just attach to the bottom of the rear deck. Again, no jute.

There are some good pictures in THIS THREAD.

General Discussion / Re: 69 console gauge light socket
« on: May 07, 2020, 01:49:00 PM »
There's nothing special about it. I've purchased replacement sockets and pig tails at Auto Zone. It's a type "S" socket and was used on a bizillion cars and trucks through the years. Dorman sells it under their part number 85805. Available at most car parts stores. Here's the one from AUTO ZONE. Uses bulb 1815 or 1895 (original bulb was 1895).

General Discussion / Re: 1969 console fuel guage accuracy ?
« on: May 06, 2020, 06:13:05 PM »
Walt, what you're experiencing is actually fairly normal. These gauges, even when new, weren't very accurate and I've owned several first gen Camaros that did the exact same thing you're seeing.

I wouldn't worry about it, but if it REALLY bugs you, you can drop the tank and pull the sender to check the "travel". You'll need an ohm meter (a cheap HARBOR FREIGHT meter will work if you don't have one, but an analog meter like a Simpson 260 would be much better since they have a needle and you can see the "travel" much better), and verify the reading goes smooth from full to empty. THIS VIDEO is of a Mercedes Benz 190SL, but the concept is the same.

The service manual states to loosen the parking brake cable at the equalizer then remove the drum. That's always worked for me.

Adjusting drum brakes on the Camaro isn't required. They're self adjusting. If you replace the shoes, you just adjust the star wheel until there's just a hint of drag on the drum when you put it back on, then drive forward and reverse several times so they adjust themselves.

There WAS a GM part number for the "cover" (P/N 1455658), but it was used on cars built up to 1964 (cars without self adjusting brakes). Note that this "cover" was metal and snapped into place. P/N 1455658 was superseded by P/N 5464803 in 1979 and was a generic part for all GM cars and trucks, but was never installed at the factory. This was a rubber (then later plastic) plug that pushed into the hole.

As for adjusting the parking brake, once the rear shoes are adjusted correctly, the parking brake is adjusted via the equalizer on the cable. All this is in the CHASSIS SERVICE MANUAL, Section 5 (Brakes), starting on page 5-7.
