Very cool, looks like they're bigger than the 1/4" threaded holes on the plate that dual exhaust cars receive. they're probably the same size as the holes on the passenger side frame rail where the plate is welded inside the rail. Noticed the repro frame rails came with the holes also and wanted to make sure that the originals came that way.
thanks for the picture and post.

If you mean the tapping plate mig-welded on the outboard side of the rear rail, yes - '69 coupes with dual exhausts got that plate.

Do you know if single exhaust 69 Camaros had pilot holes where the dual exhaust plate attaches on the outer left frame rail?

Drove by a gentleman's house yesterday who is the original owner of a 2A L.A. built RS Z28, white with black stripes. He keeps it parked in the driveway since new, go figure. anyhow didn't appear to be home but peeked through his cowl grill and everything visible through the grills including wiper linkage was black. sort of faded since its stored outside. Pretty certain this car has never been repainted. I'll cruise by again soon to have him pop the hood and get a good peek.

Thanks John :-)

Thanks JohnZ, what do u know about the cowl area on a car that received black stripes? Mine was repainted so the cowl area including wiper linkage is white, it's a white car with black stripes.

no, I'm referring to the bracket that is on the left side but inboard of the frame rail, its pictured on page 117 (UPC 8, A4) of the FAM, holds up the transverse muffler on single exhaust cars.

see the link on the 2nd post on page 3 of this thread:

Did dual exhaust cars get the single exhaust hangar bracket that's welded to the drivers side underbody just forward of the gas tank?
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: LOS/VNY 69 Z28 cowl paint on: June 08, 2009, 11:11:06 AM
Like I said, linkage "appeared" to be painted, can't say for sure. So, did black stripe cars receive the same treatment? What should the finish be on the wiper linkage?
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / LOS/VNY 69 Z28 cowl paint on: June 08, 2009, 10:51:57 AM
I recently saw an original paint Lemans blue L.A. Z28 with white stripes and the whole cowl area was white from the top edge of the firewall back. This appeared to include the windshield wiper linkage as well. This was a mid to late April car.
Jerry's book mentions white striped cars were painted white under the cowl grill.
My question is, would a January built L.A. dover white car with black stripes receive black paint under the cowl grill? Was the wiper linkage also painted?

From original black plate california cars I've seen live and in pictures, I've researched this topic, I would say to be in the ballpark '67 plates can typically start with R, S or T, '68 plates U, V, W, and '69's X, Y, Z and first run blue plates for late model '69's as well. Of coarse all vary by date of original purchase and by county as previously mentioned. Hope this helps.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z/28 heater hose bracket on: January 29, 2009, 01:40:04 PM
For the cars that did have the heater hose bracket on the alt bracket, does it attach with a single bolt from the top or a stud of some type using a washer and nut?
The FAM shows a washer and nut to a stud which sticks up from the underside of the alt bracket. I've always thought it was a single bolt attached from the top, no washer no nut. If it is a stud, is that actually a bolt threaded from the underside of the bracket?

Thanks John, I actually walked into the local AC Delco distributor and gave the D1312C number you provided and the service guy told me I wouldn't see it for about a month. Fortunately I found the AutoZone part number and after I picked up the first one last night and confirmed it was a B28, I ordered a 2nd one which I should have by Saturday for my original 480 which will remain on the shelf even though i completely cleaned and reserviced it including reskinning so it looks great!! oh well. BTW, picked up a small tube of moly grease for the grease well at a local hobby shop for $5.

As for the B28 I picked up last night, stuck it in my DavesSmallBodyHEI this morning which although I specified 6"-8" of idle vacuum when I had Dave build it, he supplied with a B26 can, (VC1808 or same as VC1765/B20). so with full manifold vacuum the engine would hunt around and idle would surge and drop and hunt and... you get the picture. Because of this for the last year, when I put Dave's SBHEI in service,  I've had it hooked up to ported vacuum.
So, like I said, Installed the B28 this morning, reinstalled the distrib, set static timing to 8*, hooked up full manifold vacuum to the can and the car runs great!! Crisp throttle response, stable idle, significantly less to nill gas fumes in the passenger compartment... nuff said!!
So with 8* of initial, total timing @ 3200 rpm is 37*. could probably stand some more initial but runs great and starts right up as set now so there it will stay!!

I know this subject has been beaten and rebeaten over the years but... Grin

The VC-1810 is ideal but NAPA tells me it is NLA.

AutoZone sells them as # DV1810, $12 and no additional shipping or freight charges if ordered from a local store. You'll get it in 2-3 business days.,dv1810/shopping/allResults.htm;jsessionid=5E07B3BEBFE00E9E93B1D95A3164F469

Leaking fuel is most definitely a safety concern.

Jimmy V.

Let me rephrase that, Its either gonna to leak or its not, just as a new pump could, and can be easily monitored. JMO. Personally, I'm running an aftermarket Carter on my car.
