I dropped the air cleaner off at the local iSold It store on Dec 13th.  As soon as they list it on eBay, I will post the link.

oh, is AIM the factory assembly manual (Assembly Instruction Manual)?
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 heat pipe on: October 12, 2006, 03:32:29 PM
I'm not familiar with the AIM or P&A. Are these available through places like Classic Industries, etc (that's where I purchased my Factory Assembly Manual several years ago)?
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 heat pipe on: October 12, 2006, 09:57:29 AM
Thank you for all the helpful information!

BTW, is there a better parts manual other than the factory assembly manual?

Thanks Ed.

I have a 2BBL but want to convert it to a 4BBL. Someone on this forum told me the stoves are the same for 2bbl and 4bbl (the tubes are different); can you confirm this for me?
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1968 heat pipe on: October 11, 2006, 05:43:35 PM
I recently bought a heat pipe (connects the manifold stove to the air cleaner on small blocks with automatics) that the seller claimed was from a 4bbl '68 El Camino and would also work on the '68 Camaro.

Can any of you confirm this for me from the images posted below? If it is correct for the '68 Camaro 4bbl, I will store it away until I source the air cleaner (this is a low-priority project); if not, please let me know what application it does fit so I can resell it.

Thanks in advance.

Iíve written tentative copy for the item description (if I go through iSold It, Iíll provide it to them). Please let me know if you see anything I should change.† Thanks in advance!

Up for auction is an air cleaner consisting of the lid and base. There are minor dents on the snorkel. The air cleaner appears to have been repainted. On the lid, there is a red sticker (partially lifting from the lid) that reads as follows:

327 TURBO-FIRE 275 HORSEPOWER

Research suggests this air cleaner is for the following application:

1967 (except California) Camaro V-8, 275 HP, 327 Cu. In., RPO L30, 4-barrel carburetor, manual or automatic transmission.

Please note the following:

This air cleaner does not have a breather hose attachment provision.

This air cleaner does not have a damper door mounted on the snorkel.

This air cleaner is discussed in the following forum thread:

Thanks to each of you for the helpful information.† I am now more comfortable with listing it for a 1967 Camaro L30 (except California) equipped with either automatic or manual transmission.

Iíll decide in the next couple of days whether to sell it myself on eBay or drop it off at the local iSold It store to let them handle the auction management.

Either way, I will post a link to the auction.

Also, if anyone has additional information to offer, please post.

Finally, my preferred choice would be an even exchange with someone who has a 68 L30 ThermAC in comparable shape to my 67 L30.† Just as a point of reference, I donít think the ThermAC being auctioned on eBay (the link was posted above) was in comparable shape to my 67 air cleaner (that auction closed without a bid and has been re-listed with a slightly lower starting bid).

I started this thread simply to get more info about the cleaner I want to sell, but I also received a lot of good information about my plans to retrofit my base model 327 to the 4-barrel ThermAC--thanks.† I have a couple more questions about that, but I may start a new thread with a title more appropriate to that specific topic.

Very interesting info; thanks for posting it.

I have the correct heat stove set-up with my 2-barrel, and I was assuming (perhaps incorrectly?) that the stove itself was the same for both the 2-barrel and the 4-barrel ThermACs. Can you confirm this?

You probably do not want to go the route of an even exchange since, as you indicated, the correct ThermAC for my application is harder to find and would therefore command a higher price.

Still, please let me know whether the stove set-up is the same for the 2 & 4-barrels.

Thank you for the added info.

Iím not sure about the base being correct for a í68, though. As I noted above, it has no provision for a breather hose, and my understanding is all í68 Camaros were equipped with breather hoses attached to their air cleaners (but I may be wrong--thatís the reason for this thread).

I had intended to auction it on eBay (either myself or through one of those iSold It on Ebay stores).

Frankly, Iím not sure what price to ask for it, since I can not be 100% sure as to its intended application. Thatís why I was going the eBay route.† If I sell it myself on eBay, I plan to include a link to this thread so someone who is looking for this part can decide for themselves whether this is the correct application and place a bid accordingly.

If you or someone else reading this thread has the correct ThermAC air cleaner I need for my application (1968 Camaro with V-8, 275 HP, 327 Cu. In., RPO L30, 4-barrel, powerglide transmission) in similar condition (as you can see from the images above it is in decent shape, better than some of the ThermACs currently being offered on eBay) post some photos and we may be able to work out an even exchange (I emphasize may simply because I had forgotten all the problems I had trying to find out why the seller had sent me an item different from the one described in the auction--thatís why I put the cleaner on a shelf and forgot about it; so Iím going to need to see some images and feel comfortable with whomever I would be doing the even exchange.

If I do put it up for auction, I will post here with the link to the auction page.

Any other information would be appreciated!

Thanks again in advance.

Several years ago, I purchased an air cleaner from an eBay seller who claimed it was from a 1968 Camaro with 4-barrel carburetor. He had posted an image showing a ThermAC, but the cleaner I received had no provisions for the damper door mounted on the snorkel. The seller subsequently told me the image he used was from another auction, but he reiterated that the cleaner I received was from a 4-barrel 68 Camaro.

What I wanted was a ThermAC for a í68 L30 powerglide (I want to change my 2-barrel to a 4-barrel and still be 100% 50 state street legal--and that requires the í68 4-barrel ThermAC, correct?).

At best I was going to have to pay to ship the item back to him in order to recoup any of my money, so I put the cleaner on a shelf and forgot about it.

Now Iím cleaning up my shop and want to sell this cleaner, but I need to know its specific application in order to properly list it.

Iíve taken a look at the CRG Research Report 1967-69 Camaro Emission Systems and some posts on CRGís forums and Team Camaroís forums, but I still need an expert opinion.

Presuming it is from a 1st generation Camaro (assuming the eBay seller was being truthful with me), it can not be for a í69 because the snorkel faces left, not right--correct?† It also can not be for a í68 automatic because it lacks the ThermAC.

It also has NO provision for a breather. The lack of a breather suggests it could not be for a í68 manual since all í68 Camaros used a breather attached to the air cleaner--correct?

Therefore, assuming it is for a first generation Camaro, it must be for a 1967 Camaro L30 (but not California since it lacks the breather--correct?) equipped with either automatic or manual transmission. Does this sound correct?

I appreciate all the help with this!

Thanks in advance.



















P.S., I can take additional photos from different angles if needed; just let me know.
