Thanks L78racer.

Here's a pic of a switch for 68 v8 without gauges, reproduced with permission from ebay user gtonly.
Also, I had a brain fade [typo] with my post #5 above with regard the pn for 67 v8 w/gauges - should read 0153321

Even this tag from HBC is wrong. There's no OO tank in 68, only 69 plus there's other anomalies!

Lol, it's a quagmire of part numbers and designs that according to the april 70 PnA grp 1.150, changed from year to year [for v8 at least] as per my first post.
01513221 is only correct for 67 v8 w/gauges - and yes, there is another pin design that is for 67 without gauges.

So to summarise v8 w/gauges:
67 is the nail head 01513221
68 is the pin style 01513130
69 is the threaded pin 01513462

67 without gauges is the same type of pin as 68 with gauges, but the pin is off-centre with a very different black thermo plastic moulding shape and of course has a different [copper] tail being a switch only. pn is 1993369
68 without gauges is the flat blade design, pn 1993426
69 without gauges is a little hazy and may only be applicable to L6 [all v8's had gauges??] pn 1993427 - also flat blade design

I've managed to hunt down some more pics, will post up soon.

Hi crew, thanks for chiming in and pointing me to the lectric connector, though the water just got a little muddier for me  Cheesy
The lectric connector is opaque white and of a style where the wire is 'in line' with the sender pin axis, whereas the classic one is black and has the wire at right angles to the pin axis.

It seems that neither of these is correct, as it should be translucent white or clear and at right angles?
If this is the case, then the classic one is the best compromise.

Cheers,
Rob

edit: In fact the lectric one almost looks like it's porcelain and immediately above it is kit 34620 which is very similar to classic's kit, though the lectric one has the eyelet [bolt -on type sender connector] already terminated to the wire and the others loose.
Even more perplexing is that lectric quotes that kit as being for everything except 68 with gauges!  Huh

Hi 69pace, noticed the ban a few weeks ago, but for how long it was banned before I noticed is anyone's guess. I've no chance to put it to a date.
Just tried it again and it was still banned, then tried a power off/wait/on and managed to get a new ip [58.7.134.18] and it now works ok.
Not quite so easy sometimes to get a new ip. As with intranet dhcp, even though you release the ip back to the pool by powering off, it remains allocated to my [the] mac address unless someone else logs on and happens to pick up that ip, only then will you get a new ip.
Thanks for your help  Smiley

Ah, I see. I'm in Perth, Australia. Current ip [dynamic] is 203.59.45.107 [iinet]

After reading some posts including this one http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=7732.msg51924#msg51924 it seems that 1513130 is the correct sender for 68 v8 w/gauges [1513321 for 67 and 1513462 for 69]
1513130 is what's in my L34 with gauges, but I'm missing the correct clip on the end of the wire.

This particular connector seemed impossible to find anywhere, but I did find this repair kit at classic http://www.classicindustries.com/product/impala/parts/ca34620.html which includes connectors for 3 of the variations of senders.
But, these pics here http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=10187.msg79618#msg79618 shows a connector that is white, not black as in classic's kit, though black may be correct for 68's?
Thoughts appreciated.

I crew, I know this is not your problem, but when I try to view posts as a guest at team Camaro [clicking links in posts here] I get a message "Sorry. The administrator has banned your IP address. To contact the administrator click here"
When I try to contact the admin, I end up with the same message!  Huh

Any way you could help me?

My 12C 68 is just over 13". Original p/n is 3864327 superseded to 3923912 according to april 1970 PnA.

It took me a while to hunt it down in that dinosaur of a book [listed in the index as Retainer chassis wiring harness]
It's in grp 2.559, last entry and I quote:
65 - 69 All ....3923912  Retainer firewall wiring [13" O.L.] gen. and forward lamp harness to rad. tie bar [Note 1]

Note 1 reads - Loose trough type wire and hose retainer [rubber] use at cowl or radiator tie-bar locations as service replacement for similar retainers which are part of wiring harnesses.

So the iron intake bb's did get some masking [pump neck, pad, bypass] and it looks as though the bypass mask was big enough to keep most of the paint off the hose?
I think you got a couple of runs there firstgen!   Smiley
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 power steering pump on: April 04, 2015, 10:43:25 AM
So, finally pulled my pump to look for this date code and still couldn't find one. Then stripped all the paint off and discovered an AMC logo stamped into it.



It does have the correct pulley as per below [looks like original phosphate under the black paint.]



So, I'm now on the lookout for a pump that has a reasonably correct date code to suit a 12c 68.
Any ideas what date would be correct?
Maybe others could chime in with what their build dates v. pump dates are.

These housings look good http://www.ecklerscorvette.com/1969-corvette-power-steering-reservoir.html
though it appears that the 'conning tower' is internal to the cover, not external like originals.

hmmm....never noticed this before. Here's what I have. First pic is nos, 2nd pic is good used. Wether it is original production line or not I can't be sure.
But it certainly is paint, looks like a dull aluminum.

What does the seller mean by "has the correct notches around it " ?
