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.

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

Are you sure about the motor mount bracket for the PS hose as I don't see it in the 68 AIM

Steering wheel horn button dosn't look like RS cap but hard to tell from this distance.  Possible repaint at some point as no longer has lower rocker bodysil blackout.  Correct RS grill with chrome trim.  Nice looking car, similar to my 01C Norwood also with factory AC.

Try Classic Auto Air in Tampa 813 251 2356.  I just sent my entire 68 camaro AC system to them to be rebuilt and I included the fittings for the dryer and they said they used them as a template to reproduce them.  Ask for Curtis
