Kurt,

That's what I thought also, but after looking in the 1968 Chassis Service Manual, sure enough, it's 320 @ 2400RPM!

Ron,

You got that backwards. The Carb was installed on the engine on the engine dress line and not at the engine assembly plant. The carb should preceed the date of the vehicle assembly so if your car has a 02A build, the carb should be before that.

HERE'S GOOD READING regarding the assembly procedure of these cars.

Ed - Mis-usage of fasteners would result in lots of inventory problems (shortage of the one mis-used, excess of the one that was supposed to be used, etc.); although there were always multiple suppliers of fasteners, they looked the same (except for headmarks), and the same fastener from different suppliers carried the same part number on the box. Line repairmen occasionally used a "different" fastener for quick repairs, but regular line operations were only supplied with the fasteners released in the Bill of Material.

Thanks John. As usual, you're a fountain of information!!

So I guess the screws on my car are not original since Mark and Steve have the same type and mine are different.

Now... What about my top nuts?

And by the way John, what was the official policy on hardware? I know that some things were called out in the AIM, but did the line have any leeway in things like sheet metal screws, nuts, bolts, etc...? I'm talking basic hardware here.

I'm also assuming that there was more than one supplier for this type of thing so is it possible (like in this case) to have one car with one type of sheet metal screw and another car with a different type? Even at the same plant?

John,

No, my screws aren't flat head, but phillips head screws. They're also about an inch to an inch and a quarter long. The grille itself is held in with rivets. The screws attach the assembly to the valence.

Here's a picture...

Steve,

Mine's the same. Screw and U-nut set-up.

Steve,

I got your email but I didn't see any numbers on my grille except a number "1" between the two circles (see the picture). I would have more guys check their grilles though. you can't go by mine alone.

By the way, what were the numbers you found on your grille?

Ed

Mark,

There are several guys out there that can restore your carb for you. I'm not sure what goes into the Year One process, but you might want to check out ERIC JACKSON'S WEB SITE. He's one of the best and his pricing is very competitive.

Mark,

The 68 L78 carb is a Holley list number 4053 and the Chevrolet P/N is 3923289 DZ. They come up on ebay all the time so you should be able to find one with a date code you need. Just do a search...

This carb is also being reproduced, so if you don't care about a correct date code, you can go that route.

Actually, they're all pretty much the same since they all purchase from the same manufacturers. Do a search on this site and on the TEAM CAMARO site for opinions on quality. Usually, I go with whoever's closer and has the best pricing.

2081  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: STANDARD INT WITH DELUXE SEAT BELTS on: October 21, 2006, 05:26:28 PM
A lot of people (myself included) don't or back in 1967, didn't like the plastic buckle standard belts, so they opted to splurge the extra $6.35 for the A39 Custom Deluxe Seatbelt upgrade. As a matter of fact, 51,247 customers felt this way!

Mark,

Yes, what we're looking for is chrome on the horizontal strips themselves. It's difficult to tell, but it appears that the "shine" we see on your horizontal strips is either chrome, or flash from the camera. Which one is it?

Thanks
Ed

50 A is Dover White body and a White Convertible Top. If it was "B", it would have been a Black Convertible Top.

Thanks John. That's what I thought, but I just needed to make sure. I didn't want to give John (above) bad info.
