Your clip I have seen before on a couple of Camaros, but its not the normal clip used. The Heartbeat City clip is the correct style. Dave

Dave, thanks for your input. Its becoming clear the clip is not typical however I'd sure like to see photos of other diffs of the period that used it.

Thanks Dave, would appreciate a post-restoration "after" photo if you have the time and opportunity. From what I can see, the same (as 11) shouldered bold is used and the clip appears to be similar to the HBC repop with flared/eased edges.

Here is a sample I can offer;
1969 04C Z11 LOS Car


Thanks Jim, entirely different design that my example. Seems there is an air gap between the line and the clip, almost resembles a front brake hose clip.

I'm reassembling the 12 bolt differential from my 1969 2B build Norwood RS/Z and trying to confirm the correct rear cover brake hose clip and fastener. There is a CRG thread on a related topic but it doesn' specifically address the clip ( ). After researching the Rear Axle Brake Line Clip PN 3956700 I can't locate a photo of a similar one to compare with and the typical (HBC) repop is different and doesn't spec a bolt or washer. I'm confident that neither the diff or rear brake line have previously been out of the car or worked on as the car was sidelined in the 70's with just 22K miles and has the tell-tale signs of not being messed with including the original single-crimp rear brake line etc. My brake line clip uses a non-captured washer and non-shouldered bolt (see photos). It also has the presence of blue dye typical of frame located brake line clamps. I would appreciate opinions on originality

Bringing this back up, a couple weeks ago at swap meet I found a washer bottle, cap bracket and RS bracket with 2 out of the 3 caps intact so I bought it - check this thread for measurements and more pis if y'all need -Lloyd?
James the guy that had them made up is he selling these? I know its been 3 years
and lastly do y'all wanna know how much its was?
$1  ::)

The simulated caps that were on the 10 10 RS/Z survivor (that James made up?) were discarded when I discovered they were not original. They appeared to be made from a fiberous material (rather than plastic per the originals) so I replaced them with an original set I located at the time.

Excellent work Lloyd! Care to explain your process?
Thanks, Doc.

Time and bodywork. Following media blasting and grinding with rotary Scotchbrite discs, fill the deep voids and any uneven areas with JB Weld as the weight of the battery on regular filler risks cracking. Use regular filler to skim coat followed by high build primer then sand and repeat until a smooth paintable surface is achieved. Paint with 30% semi-gloss black.

Looks great Lloyd, as always. Are you enjoying this project as a full restoration, rather than detailing and preserving a survivor?

Thanks!  Restoration vs Preservation are bookends apart. Preservation of a mostly complete car is a matter of verifying for originality, cleaning and detailing, (sometimes) locating those parts that have seen service replacement or Day 2 removal and then maintaining.  Restoration is also verifying for originality however it extends to many other processes. I enjoyed the preservation process and am equally enjoying restoration. Having owned and studied a survivor it has made the restoration process much better.

At Chick's request, here are a few photos of the original battery tray pre-restoration compared with an NOS tray. In addition to the "tab" there are a few other subtle differences as shown:

Looks good Lloyd . Your car is going to turn out real nice, if everything looks as nice as that battery tray, wow.

Thanks - itís a painstaking process - 1 part at a time.

Just completed the restoration of my original tray from my 69 Norwood 2B Z/28 (with tab).

Tim, this set appears cobbled together, the load rest appears correct and it has the usual stamping, the base is not nor is the jacking mechanism, both are incorrect. The photo doesn't show enough detail to assess the mast (although the trapezoid shape is typically correct). The shape of the jack handle looks OK however the photo detail is inadequate.

Usually they put blocks in a forge and then weld with nickel rod.

How are they going to repair this one?
No near term plans to repair the block.  It will be shelved in hopes of hearing from the owner of the original, matching chassis 68 Z.

Block was purchased by my shop partner for his 68 Z (not its original engine), manafuxing revealed a main web crack. The block is repairable. Below is a photo of the stamp:
