Replacement CC levers can be found on eBay but are expensive. CC with tilt is a factory option ( RPO K30 and RPO N33 ), all you need is a screw to mount the lever to the turn signal assembly.
I believe someone tried to install factory CC parts in your build and that is why we need the pictures of all the parts.
Do you have a 68 Assembly Instruction Manual ( 68 AIM )? You need to get one or down load file from this site as it will make reconstruction of the CC system easier and would not need all the pictures.

Kurts,
That is true but in this case every example has taken around 7/9 weeks give or take between assembly and installation.

T0131  03C
T0214  04E

Nice shot of tilt column, the CC lever goes where the silver turn indicator is. Which side of brake booster, picture of lines would help.
Will be leaving for weekend tomorrow and will not be back until following Tuesday.

Bottom picture is a 67/68 servo and is correct.
Need to see regulator.
Could you get a picture of the pink wiring on the fuse box with it disconnected from fuse box?
Bob

Try to get some pictures of the servo ( round thing under the wiper motor with the chain on it) and the regulator ( thing mounted on the left fenderwell that has 2 speedometer cables attached to it )
Your picture does not show much detail but it looks like the end of a CC switch / lever assembly with the lever removed. Wire colors should be Brown, Blue, Black at the plug end, a close up would be nice.

LVN 67 has an engine date stamp of T0106 and a build date of 02E. Does anyone have a production engine assembly date earlier than that? 
I know CRG has some January 01? body builds on file. I wonder what the engine dates are on them, as it took 7 weeks to get the engine into LVN's 02E build.Grin

Remember that the dipstick and tube are unrelated to the engine assembly date - they were installed at the car assembly plant.
John Z,
This brings up a question I have wondered about for some time.
If the production of L35's started on January 1, then how could they assemble engines ( T ), ship them to the plant for dress and installation on the same day?
Does this mean that there are L35's with date codes of T12?? or possibly T11?? and could L78's have earlier dates than T03?? ?
Just how long would the lead time be for bringing an RPO of this type into production? I know that the 396 was in production for use in other models but things like exhaust manifolds and oil pans are specific to Camaro's
Thanks as always. Grin
Bob

You're assuming production started on Jan 1. I've never seen that in writing that I recall.

Lead time - for what aspect? Filling the pipeline, from where to where?
Design to production?
Kerts,
You are correct, that is why I started the question with If. I was hoping that someone would correct my assumption. Do you know when the first L35 was stamped for Camaro production? Do you know what week the first L35 was built. How about the first ones you have in the data base for both questions?
As for lead time, from the date stamp on the first L35 engine at the Tonawanda NY engine plant to the engine holding area at Norwood or would that be based on number of engines ordered by Nor? I would imagine that they were sent to Nor. in batches. Grin

January L35 and March L78, so early L35's would have the purple buttons and L78's should have the Pink (salmon). I have know idea when the L35 transition  to the pink (salmon) buttons took place or if early L78'S could have the purple buttons. Revision dates do not reflect  when actual production started but early L35's should have purple buttons.
Bob
Anyone have an original early January L35 that could verify that the above could be correct?

Post some pictures so we can tell you what you have.

Mike,
Great job on the pictures. Grin
I wonder if the buttons where changed to identify a  difference between the two dipsticks.
All we need now is an original very early L35 to see what stick was used to complete this post, unless you want to add the 3899640 tube as you have an original.
Bob

Mike,
The 18 1/8" dipstick is 3860316 and the 18 1/2" is 3925520, both sticks had salmon buttons and fall in the correct time frame (2-8-67 /  3-3-67).
Do both of the sticks have round salmon buttons  or is one flat? Any other differences, type of imprinting ,size of blade etc.?

Chevelle guys have had longer to work at it and have more product to work with. I think most Camaro guys would rather modify than go original.
Look at the post date on reply 20, and we are just now figuring out what dipstick to use in a 67 BB.
Bob

Mike,
After engine assembly and painting, on engine dress line.
Could you check the dipstick length from the top of the bell to the add mark for me? Should be 18 1/8" or 18 1/2" = or - depending which dipstick you have.
Good info on pans, think #3 (3929257) is correct for 1st gen Camaro. Grin

Mike,
The measurements in the P&A are taken from the seal surface facing the stick end. The problem is that the stick shown is generic in that it has a washer and a seal and no bell.
Stop the press. Just found something interesting in my 67 Corvette AIM that may explain the purple button.
Bob


'67 Corvette big-blocks had dipsticks with pink (salmon) buttons, both before and after the mid-season running change.
John,
Thanks for the information about the Corvette mid-season (3-3-67) dipstick change from 3860316 to 3925520, both with pink (salmon) buttons.
Now, if you look at the 67 AIM L35 A4 everything starts to fall in place.
The first production BB's started in January ? 67 and had 3902339 dipsticks with purple buttons.
The revision record shows a change in 2-8-67 from the old dipstick 3902339 with purple button to 3860316 with pink (salmon) button and then another change in 3-3-67 from 3860316 to 3925520 with pink (salmon) button. This coincides with the Corvette mid-season (3-3-67) change stated above.
The index of part numbers at the top of AIM L35 A4 never reflected the change in the color code identification as it should be pink or salmon and not purple.
This does lead to the question as to why was the dipstick changed so many times when the tube 3899640 and pan 3958658 where never changed until 68.
In 68 dipstick changed to 3925599 with yellow button, tube 3928901 and pan did not change. Same for 69.
Which engine went into production first the L78 or L 35? This is important as early engines should have dipsticks 3902339 with purple buttons  Huh .
Bob


Pan # 3958658 is wrong and should be 3929257.
