General Discussion / Re: Big block fan shroud
« on: May 25, 2018, 03:52:11 AM »
I have worked for gm parts for 32 years. Never seen 67-69 Camaro shroud with out part number cast in the shroud. That is the way  i would check in the shroud. But i have seen one were the hole was not drilled. We sent it back to gm as defective. So i would say anything is possible as far as the hole. Also checked 2 nos shrouds have 3 beads one used does not have not have bead's all stamped with part #3947619. Hope this helps.

Glad to see you know what the car is now. Don't see many Red on Red Camaro's. Kool find since it is also Z-28. Also plum l78 you are right about at the motor mount clip. I was talking further  back were the fuel  line comes up the frame. Look in your 68 assembly manual for big block fuel line  show good picture of it.

Just checked 68 & 69 assembly manuals 68 shows capacitor 69 does not show one. Both 68's in our garage have capacitor on coil bracket one am car one am/fm car. Hopefully some 69 owners will chime in to help you out.

My 68 396/325 HP 4speed came from factory with 307 gear. Changed ring and pinion to 3.55 ratio but kept 3.07 gear in case i wanted to go back.

Where the  front fuel comes up the  sub frame if it held down by a bolt and clamp it is small block. If it has a double sided clamp that is riveted into the frame it is a big block! The big block fuel line will just snap into the clamp. Hope this helps.

The car i am talking about is 327 car one owner. The only thing that was changed on the motor was the water pump for which i have found a correct dated water pump. She has kept invoice's of anything that was fixed on this car. The motor has never been out of this car period since it left the Norwood Plant. So tell the experts they are wrong cause i know this is the original flat handle that left with this car brand new and she states it was never changed period.

Steve got you covered have the flat handle. Since you car is late car will be flat not round. There is topic on this originality group. But replacement's does  have SE oil on it. The blue car's originals does not say in on it and now your car a week after it.

Steve that is the early one the later like yours should have a flat handle. I found you one years ago it should be in your pile somewhere!  Am i going to have to come out there and find your 68 parts for you like i had to find Darrell's smog stuff. Better yet you need to bring that car to me so i can have 3 of the late colors 68's.
