« on: Today at 02:51:45 PM »
 I did read it here in CRG. I did a quick search and found these three threads related to the metal plugs.

Unpainted, yes. But they were put on the car prior to painting the body color so there may be overspray.

 Pretty car, but the trim tag just doesn't look right, especially the number 7's. Maybe it is the angle of the photo.
Too bad they didn't blackout the tail panel, like it should be. I don't like the fact that the side seams on the lower rear panel are filled in.

I wonder what was different between 67 & 68 TH400 stick assemblies

 That is correct.....they are symmetrical.

 That fact that the spacing between the upper perch and lower perch bracket is not fully closed make me believe a leaf was added. I don't think the factory would leave a spacing like that.

 With the factory multi-leafs.....was the main spring a dual taper (width and thickness) like the mono leaf, or was it a continuous width along its entire length (I assume the thickness was tapered). 
Just curious.

 If this is the same for a 67 TH400 then I can take it out of my car and measure it.

 What kind of adhesive would you recommend for the plain paper back, Jeff?

 Question......my 67 LOS L35 w/TH400 has the original driveshaft with the nylon injected yoke and trunnions .....do you think that these can cause issues from age?

Looks like the same that is used in the rocker gutter?

  Chick,
  The nut mounting direction in the AIM is for the reason you stated. Maybe this was a line workers error or possibly GM did things slightly different in LOS. I decided to assemble it the same (wrong) way when the car gets restored. I'll have photos to show it before the restoration. When at all possible I want to keep the few flaws (re: small paint runs in the door jamb by the pinchweld & firewall cowl top area) and any others I come across during the pre-restoration documenting.
   I stumbled across the shackle mounting differences when I was installing new leaf springs in the convertible, and using the LOS car as a reference, had a heck of a time trying to get the upper bolt w/sleeve into the frame opening due to the fuel tank interference. That's when I looked in the AIM and discovered the difference.  I reversed the direction and the install went quickly.

 Per the AIM the top nut goes towards the tank and the bottom away from the tank. The LOS is opposite.
