Hi all - a little bit of a hijack regarding this post - but similar topic. I have a 1967 L30M20 (LOS 11A) with a complete and functioning AIR system to include the steel breather pipe on the rear of the intake. Itís positioned right over the bolt where the rear lift bracket mounts. A standard unit does not seem to fit. Was there a special bracket for the AIR cars? Thanks.

A few of you may remember I was fortunate in picking up this 1967 RS L30M20 from the original owner in the summer of 2013. Numbers matching bumper to bumper.  We'll, after lots trips to the CRG page, elbow grease, and a few beers.....I' now driving her any chance I get. Stripped the bottom of the car (no under coating ever, just needed a good wire brushing & paint), new exhaust, serviced the rear, had the trans rebuilt, and preserved/rebuilt/painted/ or clear coated everything in the engine bay (did not remove) - she cleaned up pretty nice. An old re-paint from the early eighties I thought was horrendous - compounded out ok (far from perfect, but with 2 kids in college, that will wait). Only major modes are multi-leaf, dual 2.5 inch exhaust (was dual from factory), and wheels. Definitely a driver - but that 327/275 and Q-jet 750 on the highway, well.......just puts a smile on your  face.

Restoration / 1967 front fender valence design
« on: March 25, 2018, 06:15:45 PM »
Question regarding front fender lower valences. My '67 RS (LOS-11A) does not have a hole on the lower edge (100% sure its orig.)  Every reproduction and from what I'm seeing of other orig. valences of which I have several (top pic) - all have the hole. I managed to find a very nice orig. pair at a meet last fall (bottom) with no hole. Is this a LOS/NOR variation or something else? As always - that's for the help.

Mine just pulls right off. No set screw or anything. The way it's designed once the pump is attached I don't think there's any chance it could come off the shaft.

Reducing the overall length of the shaft I don't think will work. The gear is down as far as it will go b/c of the machining to make 2 flat sides so the gear does not spin (i.e. so the gear turns with the shaft). Not knowing the internals of the wiper motor - I think it will need to be pressed in 1/8 of an inch? Electrical part so I can't return it  >:(

Yep - the issue appears to be the total thickness with the gear on. Yours is at 3/4 and I'm at 7/8 (just the gear at 1/4 thick is spot on so its not the gear) Shaft is sticking out too far. Now what to do?

Mike - sorry for the late reply. Life always getting in the way.
Still struggling with that gear. I have it pushed all the way down - but there is a shoulder on the shaft that's keeping it from going on far enough and its hitting the casing on the back of the pump. Its a rebuilt wiper motor so now I'm wondering if the shaft was not set correctly?

Thanks for the confirmation Mike. I'll try repositioning the pump and see if that works now that I know that cog looking part is the right size.

Restoration / Washer/Wiper Cog
« on: July 27, 2016, 01:19:31 AM »
So I needed to replace both my wiper motor and washer pump ('67) because the previous owner had Frankensteined a motor from what I think was a 60's truck and a pump that looked like a Jarvik 7 (some of you may remember what that was)  to the firewall. After attaching both aftermarket parts - I went to fit from the old wiper motor what I'll call the "washer cog"  - its a 4 pointed "star" which is 9/16 thick and is 1-1/8 tip to tip. Although it fits the shaft perfectly - it seems a little long and the washer pump housing does not fit well over it (like it would bind if activated). Looking to see if anyone can confirm the correct dimensions?  Thanks - Chris

Dang. That's a pretty close match. Thanks for the info. Now I'll need to track down the center caps in the second picture!

Restoration / Orig. Battery Cables

So I was about to trash these since the clamps were not original and they were - well just filthy - and I was sick of looking at them - but on inspection, pretty sure the cables are orig. (p/n's 6286165 & 6290591 - '67 327). Do they make a spring  clamp that can be reattached?

Garage Talk / Appliance Plating Wheels?
« on: July 20, 2016, 01:42:45 AM »
So last weekend I found a matched set of 4 torque-thrust looking wheels on C/L. After I got them home and spent a few hours getting them cleaned up (whatever they were on -pretty sure it was sunk up to the axles) and the old rubber off  - I was able to get a   good look at the backs - I think they are from a manufacturer by the name of Appliance Plating or "AP" - but not sure since I've never heard of them (comparing to Ansen, ET, American Racing, etc.) and there's limited information out there. They cleaned up really nice (must have been the mud) and seem to be of good quality. The only stampings on the back are "A JAPAN 9 27".....thoughts or memories?
