Mike,
That is a very interesting strap you have.  Huh
Time for a new thread.

Mike,
Could you get a close up of your clip? ..........
Bob
Hi Bob,

  Here is a closeup of the clip from the 05B car. The harness is out of the car so it was easier to take a close up.
 It's the same clip that's on the LOS car I posted a picture of.

Mike
Mike thanks for the picture, a little more detail than I expected.
Is that black clip correct? Not what I expected but understand why it could be used. Going to take a little work to make that clip.
Wonder if that is a 67 only thing? Where does it plug into? Looks like a newer style clip.

Mike,
Could you get a close up of your clip? I am going to have to replace my harness and my old harness does not have a clip so I need to start looking.
When they tape a harness they start at the main plug and tape continuously to the end. When they come to a short branch they do not cut the tape, they pull the tape to the end of the branch ( this case a clip ) and tape back to the main body of the harness then continue on to the next branch or end of harness. Short story, may not have an end to unravel.

Vince and Paul,
Thanks for the replies but the condenser they show I do not think is correct. This is the condenser that most vendor's are selling as replacement. The condenser they show is flat on the top and I believe the fins should have a 45 degree angle on the top front edge as shown in the AIM.
CCS in California has an upgraded unit that has the angled edge I think is correct but before I plunk down $330.00 I want to make sure what I am getting.
So, anyone have a couple of pictures that can help me out.?

Dave,
Do not think they put the clip in the wrong place, I think the end of the harness just got twisted. After you twisted the end to make the clip work all the wire colors match those in Mike's picture.
The thing that is causing your problem is the incorrect style clip. Do you have your old harness that has the correct clip?

Dave,
A couple strips of closed cell rubber will work on the sides. A little work on the corners of the bracket. A good grade of anti freeze formulated for aluminum and your ready to go.
Might take a little longer to warm up the inside on a really cold day but I do not have that problem in Florida.
I really like that core, I bet it is light. I wonder if they have an aluminum core like that for 67 with AC?

Is Spring Carlisle different than GM Nationals?

Dave,
Look at post 4, notice how far the clip hangs out from the tape on the end? Look where the red wires come out from under the tape. The wires are bending down at  the clip not an 1'+ like your harness.
The clip on Mike's harness looks as if it is of a different design that only needs to be taped on one end. If you have your old harness use the old clip. Push the barbed end under the tape on the new harness then pull back the tape like explained above, insert old clip where the new clip is , then pull tape back to clip. Now you can bend the wires at the clip like they should be.

Just route your wires like they are in Mike's picture and I think it will solve your problem. Looks like all the wires are in the correct position coming out of the harness compared to Mike's wiring. I just pulled the tape covering back on one of my old harnesses about an 1" with no problem. Just work the last 6 or 7" of the tape backwards with a slight twisting. back and forth  motion.

Nobody has a 67 with an original AC condenser? How about a 68 as they are of the same design at the top of the condenser?
Bob

Yes, but few know that there is an adjustment. The 67 AIM Z22 B3.5, 68 AIM Z22 A15 and 69 AIM Z22 B3 show the adjustment.
Bob

Yes.
Headlight cover to center grill adjustment. Headlights are adjusted after covers are adjusted horizontally, vertically and parallel to the grill.
X77-69z28,
Could we see a picture of one of them?
Bob

That looks just like the correct A-Arm shims for aligning the front end.
The originals do not have a hole in them.


The originals do not have a hole in them?

Chick,
The masticated sheet they show MAT014-WS is 1/16" .062, so they indicate. I wonder what the thickness tolerances are on this type sheeting?
Did you check the old seals on your 68?  Did you make new ones from the material you bought or use the old ones?
Does your 68 have the 5th seal at the LH firewall?

Anyone had any dealings with Classic Condenser Specialists in CA.?
Does anyone have an original 67 condenser that can verify the angle shape of the fins on the top of the condenser?
Bob
