The other red flag is the seller stating the engine is, “The Correct Engine”. This usually means it isn’t original to the car.

Here's the eBay link; http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261104056476&ssPageName=ADME:X:BOCOR:MOTORS:1123#ht_3745wt_1143

Beware of this seller. I asked him about the trim tag. He said it is real cause his brother bought this car new and that's the tag that came on it. Kinda funny cause a while back he had a black Z for sale and I question him on it and he said the same thing except a friend of his bought it new.

That seller always has Z's for sale on eBay. I think just about everyone I've seen him have listed is questionable.

I ended up rethreading my 3/8 bolt down to 5/16. Works like a charm.

Danny,

15 seconds in the Harbor Freight bead blast cabinet. I suppose it looks a little rough, but it ought to look dandy after replating. Note the bolt size is identical to the hex size.

Shame they don't make these anymore -

Regards,
Steve

Steve ....sent you a message

I called them and they get their cables from Factory Fit. I have talked to Factory Fit and they I formed me they use the
3/8 bolt in their cables.

Danny - if you need this cable let me know - I won't be using it in all likelihood since I can't be sure of the number for my application -
Regards,
Steve

Thanks I appreciate it but the bolt looks a little rough.

Yes they do Danny cause one guy almost ruined my battery trying to put the wrong bolt in the wrong hole. He ruined the first 3 or 4 threads with the 5/16 when he tried to tightened it. Pulled them right out.  I was lucky as my disconnect had a longer bolt that went deep enough to catch the threads that were left deep in the hole.

Where did you get the cables?
68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 neg side terminal battery cable bolt on: November 05, 2012, 08:35:09 PM
Where did you get your cables? My new ones came with the correct 5/16 and the 3/8 like they were supposed to. Maybe get some new cables since you are having a hard time finding the bolt.
So you say your cables have different size threads on the bolts? Every place I called said the reproduction cables they sell have 3/8 threads and the bolt head is the only difference in size between neg and pos. The cables were on my car when I bought it.
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 neg side terminal battery cable bolt on: November 05, 2012, 04:48:02 PM
I've called all the above mentioned places and they all use 3/8 thread bolts in the reproduction cables since that's the way new batteries are.

Did you see my link on TC? Corvette Central has the bolts by themselves.

Ed


Yes but I called and those are 3/8

I looked in my battery book and yes Corvette did have the 5/16 neg connector. From what I see anything that used a Y77, Y79, Y87, or R79 battery they had the 5/16 neg.
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 neg side terminal battery cable bolt on: November 05, 2012, 09:00:22 AM
The bolt head looks correct but I can't tell what size bolt that is. I need a 5/16 thread bolt.

Looking for the 5/16 bolt for 69 Z28 neg battery cable side terminal. Someone replaced the bolt in mine with the 3/8 bolt for newer batteries. I have a Y 77 battery in mine. Can't find the right bolt.

If the original engine is gone the car can never be a matching numbers

You know that you will have to re paint the filler panel and stripes because they are in a different position on vinyl top cars

Yes
