If you have a trained eye you should see a hanging rod on the right side of pick.  Can you name it?  What it does?  Where it attaches?  I'll save the answer and have some fun with this one. Cheesy

I believe that is part of the kick down lever that connects to the carb when throttle is wide open.  It attached to the trans lever.  I have a 68 so if you look in the Assembly Manual on page 337 of the M35 (powerglide option) you can see the parts

In researching my car and others on ebay, it looks like the 68 camaro with the base 327/210hp AC cars used the 1002 7 blade fan but came with the 21" smaller radiator.  The other Camaro AC cars appeared to use the 23" larger radiator but I have not researched those fan applications.  Wondering if the smaller radiator usage in these cars was offset by the 7 blade fan.

I have picked up two original sets (supposedly) from camaro owners doing restorations, and the body mount bolts for position #2 and #3 both had the captured washer as part of the bolt head.  I am curious if any original 68 owners have bolts like these on there cars?

In 68, it was galvanized finish and bolted to the exhaust manifold using 2 exhaust manifold bolts.  The tube bolted to the heat stove using one small sheet metal screw.  I just finish de-rusting mine and it cleaned up very nice with a light wire wheel and scotchbrite pad.  I then used a  VHT Flameproof high temp clear which gave it a nice sheen and cured the paint using a heat gun. Hopefully this will prevent rust from coming back.

In the Corvette restoration world, we also see very tiny stampings on the machined boss around the front outlet, occasionally in 1968 and more frequently in 1969; that's a julian assembly date. If you look VERY carefully at the photo below, you can see a "3" and remnants of several other numbers on a '68 master cylinder boss.

I can make out 353

Just want to be sure these were dip primed black.  After removing paint metal looks to be plated underneath, anyone with survivor RS your help would be appreciated.

I also have a 327 mostly original vert and back in the mid 80's I had a few leafs added to my original mono leaf spring because of sag due to age at a local spring shop.  I plan on replacing with a nos mono leaf's or removing the additional leafs and have the original mono re-arched.

84  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Choke Cover Paint on: January 21, 2010, 07:23:15 AM
On a base engine with painted intake, was the choke cover painted or unfinished?  Also I assume the thermostat housing bolts were also painted as this was installed before the engine was sprayed, correct?

Thanks

Go to Glen Burnie, Title/File Room, at first they may refuse due to privacy laws but tell them you are not interested in personal information and it can be hidden with a sharpie and they will print all past titles from microfilm. You can see info when held up to a light or you might get lucky as in my case because they had a problem with the film and agreed to mail my title info and them forgot to black out the personal information.  I was able to locate the original owner as well as discover Pat Goss from Motorweek fame own the vehicle at one point.

Good luck

Congrats,  nice segment Jerry, but I wish it was longer. 
They could easily devote the entire 1/2 hour to that car and we still wouldn't get bored

See page 345 of 1968 ASM.  Screw part # 447143 was used and I believe AMK Products has it listed on there website.

The bracket you need is on ebay from Chicago Muscle Car Parts, ask for Ralphhttp://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1967-68-69-CAMARO-ENGINE-LIFT-STOP-BRACKET-350-327-302_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ34202QQihZ006QQitemZ160151032429QQtcZphoto

Can you measure the length of cable on the passenger side as that is the part I need unless you are willing to sell it
