Jerry,
I thought the digital download would pick up the darker background, but I tried it anyway and it came out perfect.
Thanks for the link. Grin

Charley,
What color is the plastic wire clip that goes in the 3rd hole from the front?
What type head markings do you have on your 2 bolts?

Could someone with a 68 Assembly Manual reprint that has white paper pages please scan page 0 A 8.5 and Email it to me?
I have a 68 AIM but it has the off white color paper and can not use it for a 67 firewall piercing project I am working on. I sure hate to spend $40.00 on another reprint for just one page.
Help greatly appreciated. Grin

I would be interested if owners of original 67,68 Camaros would check there blade holders with a magnet and let us know if they are magnetic.

John Z,
Could you explain what satellite dull finish is and did the Federal regulation start at the 67 start up or was it phased in during the production run?

Actually will be looking for a set for the 67 Camaro. Sure thought the Camaro blades where original as it has not seen the street since 1970.
Something unusual about the 67 Camaro blades, they are not stainless steel. they are steel with a dull gray coating on them. Lacquer thinner will not hurt the finish.
Every part of the blade is steel and is magnetic.
I have an 05E build and I wonder if there was a change over in material and stamping in late 67?

John and Jeff,
Thanks for the reply.
My 67 Camaro and Corvette have satin peaked blade holders but the are stamped  TRICO    MADE IN USA. You indicate I will need the blade holders with TRICO  only stamped on them? Is this correct?

Bob

Yes - those are assembly line correct for 67 - 70 Camaros.  And Corvettes Smiley

The blade holders are different though.
63-65 corvette - bright chrome - flat  <Trico>  Dots rubbers
66 Corvette same as 67 Camaro  <Trico> some Corvettes used Anco from the plant in 67.
67 had peaked blade reading <Trico>
69 had peaked blade reading  <Trico> made in USA
70 used the push pin blades like Novas.

somewhere along the line the "squished flat peak" blades were used - may have been in Late 69  I am not sure when the change occurred.

I grabbed 2 more sets - just can't help myself Roll Eyes

Please explain if 67 Camaro had polished ,flat, blade holders. Please explain the difference between flat and peaked holders

Mike ,
I remember why. The AIM isn't an assembly line document, it's an engineering document.

Mike,
Which brings me to a question as to why view B is needed on L48 A4 if holes were punched in a hydraulic fixture?

Bob

Mike,
Look at L48 B2. Gives measurements for stencil placement.

Mike,
Did you notice if the starter mounting pad on the block has paint on it.The starter being painted black as an assembly still causes me to wonder about a good ground return. All ground wires on the Camaro have star or lock washers to achieve a good ground through painted surfaces. Looking at L35 A5 no such precaution was taken on any of the starter fasteners.
With the block being painted and the starter brace being painted, bolt #4 would not be a very good ground return even if #4 nut cut through the paint on the bracket.

Mike,
Do your stamped numbers on your main case show paint in them ( stamped then painted)?
Is the phenolic end that is broken black or brown?

Bob

For reference how long are your lines(2) for your BB? The excess line at the console was taped (U17 A3), what kind of tape was used?

Bob
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 oil line clear or black? on: April 21, 2013, 10:28:16 PM
Long line for a SB. That line also looks bigger in dia. than the interior line in your picture. The wall thickness on the old plastic line was thinner and gave that translucent look but newer line is white and believe is thicker in dia. Just not the same.

Bob

That is on the engine side of the firewall, so could that be where a plastic cable strap goes? U17 does not show one but it does go up into the wiper harness area. M40 shows a strap in that area but I am just guessing.Does that show up on your auto?
