Will try and get back over to the 68 survivor asap.
Here are some pics of a 68 291, 69 291, and late 80's/early 90's service replacement.

Chick, I will try to keep an open mind about this as I could only see it being possible in a black interior car only, otherwise that car has had them changed sometime in the past. I would like to see the cast numbers from the backs of each handle.......................RatPack................

Troy, the car is a local 2 owner car with black standard interior. Guess I might be able to check the cast #'s with a mirror!

Great info here! Was looking at a 07D 68 Survivor today and the window crank knobs were the 69 style as pictured previoiusly. Assume since it is a late car the change was already made. Any thoughts on exactly when the change took place?

For me no use trying to speculate on the car, but thanks Jerry for communicating a genuine concern.

I have 4 Clip rings.....NO problems !!
A real bear to get off wheel.

Yep, they are a real bear to get off! In fact, how many of us have found them with dings from people (me included back when) taking them off? I use them with no issues and would not want to be taking them off and on.
Had to smile when I read Jon's note thinking about how we just beat the crap out of those cars and never saw a ring go flying off. And ticket free? How'd we do dat?Huh?

X2 and thanks Marty for communicating the situation.
Daniel, feel the vibes as they are on the way..... Smiley
682  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Z28 Front Coil Springs, Which ones? on: July 24, 2012, 06:19:09 PM
Thanks Ed.

It was yours and Chick's posts that helped me go with springs from Bob.

According to Bob his "look and sit right", however, it sounds like, one size fits all for the small blocks. I know HBC and Rick's sell springs based on application/weight added, but I'd like to know if it's worth the difference in price and do they work as advertised.  My leaf springs won't ship from Bob's for a couple of days, so I still have time to order the coils from him, if needed.

Paul



Wish I could help you Paul but I used my original front coil springs and sold the NOS service replacement coils purchased in 1979. And I have not read or have any info that could assist.

Jon, just want you to know when I bought our 68Z 30 years ago it was already torn apart and not too many hardware pcs. were bagged so I had to do the best I could considering. This screw is what I think it is considering the size and head diameter, along with the # I have as it is also used at UPC 1 B4. (68 AIM page 44) Hope I'm correct..... Smiley
684  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Ashtray bracket mounting screws on: July 24, 2012, 06:47:05 AM
Would someone please be kind enough to post a picture of the original screws which were used to mount the ashtray bracket into the dash of a '67-'68 Camaro? A measurement of the length of the screws would be appreciated as well. Thank you.
If you need I will dig mine out and post a pic but they are 8-18X1/2" long and the screw head is .31 diameter. The last few months I had to find and catalog screws/bolts etc. for our restoration. Just checked the AMK catalog (our screws are 68) to see what the differrence is between the 68 and 67. AMK shows the same dimensions but not as pointed screw if that makes sense.
685  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Speedo cable Clips on: July 23, 2012, 05:13:39 PM
I compared your clip to a original spare clip I have and I could easily bend my clip to same configuration as yours shown in the photos.
Compared the clip to one of my originals and you Copo are 100% correct. Should have done that to begin with so bad on me. It is somewhat interesting that two different cars had similar bent clips but the bottom line is they are the same.
Thanks for checking!
686  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Original Wide Tread Tire & DF wheel, weights, and valve stem on: July 21, 2012, 05:12:40 AM
Great pics Jerry! Hard to find examples like this. Good on ya!
Also good to see the date of tire/wheel (both July) vs. your 07C.
687  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Speedo cable Clips on: July 21, 2012, 04:55:51 AM
It l looks like standard clip that has been bent around 180 degrees to me.

Look at the form in the steel! You do not bend one around 180 degrees and keep that form along with the two outward indents. When formed the indents wouild be to the outside and not inside as it would have been if bent around.
688  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Original Wide Tread Tire & DF wheel, weights, and valve stem on: July 20, 2012, 08:53:07 PM
Thanks Paul! That valve stem cap with "Schrader" has me curious.
 
689  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Brake & Gas Liine Clip 3881339 on: July 20, 2012, 07:31:40 PM
Went through our clips and found one that you could clearly see was phosphate.
Were there differences depending on where they were used, i.e. gas vs. brake?
690  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 Original Wide Tread Tire & DF wheel, weights, and valve stem on: July 20, 2012, 07:10:28 PM
Recently I had the good fortune to come across an original 68 Wide Tread Tire and DF wheel that
I feel is unmolested and totally original. Wanted to share and also learn from the valve stem as its
different from what I thought I knew about.  All I ever read about were Dill valve stems!
I believe the tire is dated Jan68? It came from the original owner of the 68Z/28. Micro weight is like new!
Plan on using this as our spare but leaving it the way it is. What do you think?








Oh, and I checked the valve stem length of several DF wheels along with other Corvette rally wheels (68)
and they all stick out approximately 1.300". Opps, wrong length!
