Maintenance / Re: where do these wires go to
« on: February 15, 2016, 01:27:29 AM »
Thanks for the info Camarocards, now I am more confused. I have the wires for the brake system already hooked up, also my high and low beams as they both still have the factory plug ins. This is a four speed, a/c, console car if that helps. I may need to get a colored wire diagram .
Thanks
Darryl

I am cleaning up the last of the underdash wiring on my 68. Can some of you help me on what these wires are suposed to go to?  A solid yellow wire, and orange and a white one together, two green ones and one orange with a flat plastic clip on it
Thanks
Darryl

Maintenance / Re: 1968 a/c power wire
« on: February 14, 2016, 07:25:03 PM »
Thanks, I have all the wires including 1/2 of the fuse holder coming out of the firewall, but not the rest of the power wire. I wanted to be sure I wasn't overlooking something.
Thanks

Maintenance / 1968 a/c power wire
« on: February 13, 2016, 11:43:54 PM »
I am trying to get my wiring straight so i can get my air conditioning and heater working . I see in the aims that the power wire for the a/c seems to come from the horn relay over to the inline fuse at the a/c case. Is it in the wire bundle that the starter wires are in, or was it ran seperate? Mine apears to be missing.
Thanks
Darryl

So if the gears are 3.08 already could he go with lower ones, But if his gears were in the 2.0's  the carrier would most likely not accept 3.08 or lower is that correct?

So no gas tank removal or anything like that right? I have dismantled junk cars in the past with no regard for beating up something to get them out, It's just been too many years to remember the details

Maintenance / Leaf spring removal

It doesn't look like there is a whole lot of room to slide the bolt out of the leaf spring shackel. Has anyone had problems getting that out ?

Mine was doing something similar, The pickup tube where it comes up out of the tank was not attached good to the round flat base, (where it is crimped on) I guess making a bad ground.

Didn't the 69 firebirds have something like a comfort grip on them?

Originality / Re: 68 SS hood ornaments
« on: June 12, 2007, 09:16:24 PM »
I thought rich had said the 68 ss hood ornaments went from the finned to the oil cooler type in nov or dec of 67. I will check the e-mail from him when I get home.   Here it is



In your visual I.D. table you show the 68 ss hood inserts for the 350 as being the finned type, while in articles by others they talk about a change to the venturi type some time after jan. Which of these is correct?   Thanks Darryl

I'm trying to recheck for you based on newer data.  We have an indication that a
change occurred in October, but we need to update the data, which we haven't
done in awhile.  Rich

You didn't reply to my follow-up, but our research re-cap says that cars built
early Nov or before have the 67 version, with the later type appearing by 12E on
cars shipped after 1 Jan.  Not sure of the weeks in between, but my bet would be
that this was a circa 1 Jan change.  We'll continue to try to pinpoint it.  Rich

I was just wondering, does anyone have a list of parts, or is there a book that shows what parts are still available from GM ?
