Thanks Darrell - just wondered why the limited search results from the top right search field? Would think many members are missing out when searching for specific details this way.

Noticed over the last couple of weeks that the forum search function only shows limited and very recent results. However, if I use a search engine (eg Google) with the exact same keywords and the prefix '' it will show the thread I'm looking for.......
Example: was searching for an old thread about Paragon Reproductions today; searching from within the forum for the keyword 'Paragon' only found today's posts. Google threw up the thread from some years ago that I was looking for.

Austin, I recall the carb stud fuel line support bracket thread, but pretty sure Paragon's logo is a 'PR' inside a diamond or shield shape. This plate bracket also has 'GM3913608' on it, and it's been on the car since at least 1971.

Here's a picture of the photo on my camera screen - not great, but enough to see the symbol. I have to figure out how to get the original image from my SD card to the iPad.....

I don't recall it ever being stated that it was TWO different stamps (used)...
Gary, every hidden cowl or blower motor hole partial I've seen has lacked the prefix '1' that drivetrain partials do have. There would have been no reason to remove the '1' if the same gang stamp was used.

Know this is old, but wanted to add to the content. 5 years ago, I posted to this thread:
Is it likely that GM used more than one supplier for these brackets, especially for LA cars? I have a NOS front bracket with the GM stickers and AAc, but the rear bracket (def. original to the car) has the GM part # stamped on it, but no AAC...... I saw the eBay auction that people have referred to, and I went out in the dark with a flashlight to check my brackets... no AAc on the rear though  :(

Well, yesterday I was working on the rear of the car and noticed a stamp in the rear plate bracket that I hadn't spotted previously, when looking in vain for 'AAc'. It is a capital 'P' inside a triangle. Couldn't get a decent photo in failing light, but will have another go today.
Haven't seen that stamp before on any other component, or in anyone else's build thread AFAIK. Alternate supplier? LOS assembly peculiarity?

Great photo Steve! Seems amazing nowadays that people (especially kids!) could get so close to the cars, even assuming that shot was of a slower victory lap.

Yup I could have been clearer but by 'may have what you need' meant a solution to fix the stripped threads, or a correct vent bowl.
Also in re-reading the OP's question I missed that it was particularly the rear bowl - I *think* only front bowls were vented where required, but anyway the recommendation for Eric still stands. He's very knowledgeable and does fantastic work - restored a 4053 for me and it was so perfectly done that I wondered if it deserved to be in an illuminated display cabinet rather than hidden under an air cleaner!

Some float bowls are vented and some aren't. I'd suggest getting in touch with Eric at he knows these carbs inside out and will be able to offer good advice - may even have what you need.

Saw that a day or two ago.
Have not seen a jack mast base that shape in a 69 Camaro before.
Assembly line jack components (ratchet mechanism, load rest hook and base) are typically grey.
Rivet date code number unclear (at least to me) but could just be the photo, or because the rivet appears to have been sanded to show it.

What a great car!

Originality / Re: 69 Oil Pressure Line Firewall Hole Location

Here's my car's firewall in that area:
The large hole on the right of the photo is the Muncie speedo cable hole, the upper hole just past the throttle arm bushing is the LOS oil line hole, and the lower hole is for the speedo cable clip AFAIK.

That's where mine is Kevin, and several other LOS cars have it there too - see this thread from 2013 which (although it took a few turns) finished up with a photo posted by Mike (rszmjt) showing the same location, also matching the Location described by Warren (WorkinProgress) on his 04A LOS car:;all

Red, was your car assembled at NOR or LOS? The firewall oil line penetration on my LOS car is not in the location shown in the AIM, and I've determined that several other LOS cars have it in the same position as mine. NOR assembly seems to have followed the AIM locations.

OK, so after the new info you learned and updated here and in the older post, can you confirm:
- what previously made you think the car had A/C?
- if it did have two fuel lines? (if so that would indicate QuadraJet carb, and not a Z/28).
