Very helpful, thanks Kevin.

I didn't mean these were factory body shims. These are aftermarket body shims is what I meant or at least that's what I used in the shop for years. No the original shims were not zinc. Sorry for the confusion but he did say he bought them at a parts house so I took it for granted he understood they sold him body shims instead of front end alignment shims. Maybe these are alignment shims that they use now. I've been out of the business 20 years.

For clarity the bright zinc shims in the photo at the top of this thread are currently being marketed by the parts houses as factory correct control arm alignment shims for 67/8/9 Camaros...I didn't purchase them.

Just came across this, seems to be the same style jack sleeve in the photo with the Endura jack however the part number decodes to an Oldsmobile item.  Think I've answered my own post.

Working on a few engine compartment and suspension details and I've not been able to locate a reference for the correct, factory installed, control arm alignment shims used on Norwood built '69 Camaros.  The parts houses sell the style of shim in the first photo below in bright zinc with a hole in the top and the size ( 1/32" or 1/16" ) stamped on one side, as correct for all 1967-1969 Camaros. The second photo is of a shim that I pulled out of a '69 that I can't say was original to the car however it shows significant age. It has the same general shape however lacks the hole and has no size stamping.  Would appreciate some help to identify the factory correct version(s).

Below is a photo from a current eBay listing for a very nice, original, late production (9J, 1969) bumper jack set from a survivor '69 Camaro with a factory installed endura bumper. I have not previously seen the rather long, rubber lug wrench retaining sleeve and was interested to know if this is orginal, period aftermarket, a late 1969 production item or even unique to the endura bumper option? The more typical retainer straps (2 required) I have seen (and discussed in another related CRG tread http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1451.0 are shown in the second photo

I think I do, but not sure. If I do it's burried somewhere. Do you have a spare?

$12...that's a deal, nice ones usually trade on eBay for 3x-5x that price, well done. Do you have the poly bag for it, an important detail.

 

Gary, I don't have a spare poly bag but there's a really nice one on eBay, item # 400442437592 .

I'm in the market for an OEM owners manual for my 06A Z and I have noticed that all the ones I have seen on ebay are First Edition August 68's. Were there other dates printed or was that First Edition use throughout the whole production run?

Gary, there is a nice Third Edition Owners Manual listed on eBay Item # 400435738472 .

My 4C Norwood car has the April, 1969 Third Edition manual

Thanks for the additional details Mike.

Mike, thanks for the posting, that's excellent information and the photos help a great deal!  For completeness of topic and future reference, do you have, and would you post the measurements for the non-cowl stud as well.

Lloyd,

The stud in the photo looks correct for a cowl hood car, however I think your wing nut is not the original, it looks to bulky in the wing thumb hold area. The wing nut should not be chrome, and the stud ( i think) is like a dull black phosphate. I had changed mine many years ago ( put a chrome lid and stud/nut off a non cowl hood car) and in going through my original kept parts for my car ( reinstalled), just came across it and the wing nut, ( as well as the lid) I will snap a picture Monday and repost it for you.  

Would be great if you would post a photo of an original, thanks Mike.

The cowl hood (original paint) and air cleaner assembly on my '69 Z/28 are original however at some point a few fasteners lost their way... including the air cleaner stud, and I have been painstakingly trying locate correct originals. The air cleaner stud seems to be a particular challenge.  The commonly available era correct stud is ~2.25" total length, the lower segment that screws into the carb is ~0.50" and upper segement that secures the cleaner lid and filter element is ~1.75".  I use an AC Delco repop 212CW air cleaner element which measures ~3.00" in height and an original 4053 carb with paper gasket.  I understand the original 212 element was also 3.00" high.

The stud has a lot (no photo) of excess thread length above the top of the air cleaner lid with the wing nut secured and doesn't look right. What is the correct total and segment lengths of an original cowl air cleaner stud and are there any differences vs a non-cowl hood open element stud? I am also interested in how the top of the stud was finished/cut. The stud in the photo is tapered rather than bunt cut  Huh
