Used distributors at swap meets are $5-10. Maybe cheaper to do that for parts. Martin

Wrong power steering pump pulley.
Wrong crank pulley for a power steering car.
Smog missing and exhaust manifolds are non-smog.

I have a bunch of the orange detent covers that I bought from the original supplier. I'm willing to part with some/most.

I bought my 68 LOS Camaro in 1990 and had to go throught this same thing. The front end was changed and hardware store fasteners were used. I made lots of trips to salvage yards and finally found all the correct fasteners for the sheetmetal. I also verified them from looking at original cars at Pomona and Long Beach swap meets. RBW and an anchor were seen in 67 and 68. More anchors in 67 and few in 68. In 69 I saw more of the C fasteners. This is mostly the bolts for the fenders to inner fenders, upper round braces, hood latches and radiator support. The bolts into the firewall are different. You need to spend time looking at the AIM and a car to see what part number goes where and how many you need. I have that for the 68 standard front end but it's probably not in a publish ready format.

Sorry I don't know the answer either. I don't even remember seeing one of those pulleys.

I looked through my stuff and only found one that looks like the 3-speed lever.

Sorry. Martin

Is it the lever attached to the transmission that the rod goes into?

I have a jack base exactly like that one that I found in a 67 LOS Camaro years ago at a salvage yard. I didn't note the VIN or other data.

The extra threaded boss is for 69 and up. There is a bracket that bolts to it that isn't part of the 68 and earlier alternator brackets.

I have several 1100794 alternators and none have an ink stamp on them. Did they have ink stamps in 68?

The '429 tail housing on the Muncie trans has the speedo on the driver's side and I think you could use the same speedo cable as the auto trans.

Joe, the smog pump adjuster brace for 67 and 68 are very similar. The bend in the brace (see Charley's photo) is close to the adjusting slot on the 67 and the 68 is about 2.5" from the slot. I have several 67's but only my reference 68. I'll keep an eye open for one if I go to swap meets. I can take some photos of the braces if you're interested.

Vic, I found an extra clip in one of my parts boxes today. If you're interested send me an email.

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Single groove L34 water pump pulley on: December 11, 2010, 10:39:09 PM
I put the pulley report together many years ago. The 68 AM has errors in it and the pulley report was an attempt to identify the correct pulleys. The smog information was not known at that time. I have had most of these pulleys in the past and I still have some in a box.

The C60 crank pulley is larger and the water pump pulley that goes with it is smaller.

There is a single groove BB short water pump pulley but I don't think it was used in 68, only 67.

I think the 3905995 water pump pulley's without the ribs were used in earlier years (mid-60's).

I hope this helps answer some questions.

OK, I got the 6-cylinder pump out of the shed and my V8 pump out of the garage. The 6-cylinder pump has a stamp that looks like 0 4 9. The bottom of the characters is very light if there at all. The V8 pump took some very fine steel wool and I found a complete 8 with a possible character before it. The stamping is upside down when looking at it from the side. The pump in my car is too hard to read.

The location on both is on the engine side at about 10 o'clock. Set the pump in front of you with the pully facing you. Then look at the housing on the left side between the upper bolt hole in the cast iron housing and the top inlet.

I've heard that you need to turn the wheels to bleed the air out. I did that so long ago I can't remember much but I think I did it a couple times and didn't have a problem. To rebuild it, there are instructions in the Overhaul Manual or just take the 2 rear studs and 1 fitting out and the housing should come off. The cast piece has an O-ring and there are other gaskets where the studs are. I bought rebuild kits years ago from a parts vendor, I think they used to be around $12. Make sure the housing isn't distorted (it needs to be round) or it will leak.

I hope this helps.
