Well I'm about to find out, I just bought an NOS OEM accelerator cable from him. He has a lot of nice parts on ebay and an excellent feedback but I sent him an email this morning and he hasn't replied. Normally that would put me off but it is the only OEM cable that I have been able to find.

Has anyone dealt with the ebay seller joparts? Good Bad or Ugly?

Nova cable attaches to the firewall with one screw. I can take a pic. of the Nova set-up if you need it. The Nova Q-Jet cable will work. The Nova Holley cable has a different end.

Thanks for the confirmation and no need to post a pic. I have it from a few different sources now that it will work so I'm going to order the Nova cable.

Have you checked what Lokar has ? Quality products.

No I'd prefer the stock look. While the engine is not the original L6 it does look stock under the hood. There are a couple of problems that a Camaro guy would pick up on like the 1967 valve covers and oil filler in a 68 car but most people don't notice that.  I have the stock air filter and exhaust manifolds and for the most part it looks like a stock camaro.

So far I have come up with GM part 3998632 as fitting early Nova with four barrel carburetor. Can anyone tell me if the Nova cable attaches to the firewall the same as the L6 Camaro cable? Mine is screwed to the firewall.

Thanks for all of the replies and suggestions but I'm looking for someone who has already been through the conversion and knows of a cable that will fit. I'm trying to avoid buying two or three cables to find the one that works. There are differences in length and how they attach to the carburetor, firewall, manifold and gas pedal. Nothing is simple.

It was a hard lever action linkage in 68 on the 327.

68L30

Do you know if the cable assembly is interchangeable with the lever assembly without altering the firewall?

Thanks but I the engine is not original and I prefer the cable to the lever. I also think that the hole in the firewall is different between the two versions so it wouldn't be easy to convert.

Years a go I converted my 1968 L6 Camaro to a 327 engine with quadrajet carburetor. At that time I was able to use the 6 cylinder accelerator cable on the new engine but it was a little bit longer than I would like it to be. Also I recently read some where that there is a Nova cable that was used with a 350cid engine that fits a little better than the L6 cable.

So my question -  has anyone been through this that can save me some leg work and trial and error finding a good fitting cable? Did the 68 Camaro use a cable with the V8 engine?

TIA Mike.

Bryon:

I bought my 68 Camaro in 1987 with a matching number l-250. The pump has the number 16 cast in it and is stamped 30454 with the letter "A" just below the numbers. I believe that the pump is original but can't be sure.

Some of you may already know of this but it's new to me. It a site called The GM Heritage Center. It's interesting reading and has downloadable information packages that are loaded with technical detalis.

here's a link to an ebay auction for a set of tires that I like the looks of:

Nice looking car!
If it suits your needs, go for it!
We certainly did back in the day....

Oh I remember, I was born in 1954 and have owned this Camaro since 1987.

Here's a photo that I took a last week, I've always liked the look of the 215/70 radials but like I said earlier I'm thinking of something a little racier.
