Not sure what to say, I took the picture from the 69 manual. Very odd.

Thanks James, good stuff. Interesting how none of the pictures have the lower hose crossing over the upper hose like this picture from AIM.

The AIM shows the metal clip on the alternator for cars with AC but not on cars without AC. Thanks for the pictures.

Thanks guys. I would like to know if any one can confirm the picture in the AIM is the way it was done for cars built later in 69.

The AIM shows the lower hose crossing over the upper hose for a V8 engine. However, I see a lot of pictures that have a band around both hoses that attaches to the alternator. Which is the correct way to install the hoses?  Thanks.

Thank you for the history lesson!  This is why I come to this site everyday.

I can confirm that my build date is August 29 1969 per NCRS and first 3 of the last 6 digits of my vin are 677. It is an X77 car and it came with cowl from the factory (I share this since I think that was a later option). As to the other car, it has been with the same owner since 1974 and sitting in his garage since 79-80. It too has the cowl hood from factory, is an x33, and the plate says 11D and I believe the First digit of the last 6 started with a 7.

I posted this message because of the information about tachometers in the reasearch pages - to clarify what is "mid" and "late production".

My friend is restoring a 69 Z28 X33 built in November 69. The car has its original tach and it is a 6000 to 7000 rpm tach. Any thoughts why it did not have the 8k or 8500 tach?  I also have my original tach and it is a 6k to 7k tach too and my car was built August 29, 1969. Just curious.

Thanks all.  Warren, yes, the floor gauges are repo. I will give my builder a call. I will let you know what he has to say.
