421  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / First Gen. Holley Carb. Color? on: July 12, 2010, 11:47:08 PM
I remember that first gen. Holley carbs were some shade of green with gold linkage. All the old carbs and parts I have are green.
Now I see restored first gen. carbs in different shades of gold.
Is gold cadium dichromate now accepted as the standard.
What is the correct color and does anyone do the correct first gen. Holley process?

Ron,
Not as solid as I thought.
You got me thinking so I checked a set of Packard TVR wires that I have for a L78 I am building and sure enough you are correct, #7 has a 90 degree boot.
The only reason I can see  for the 90 degree boot is so the wire does not rub on the booster.
I have never been a big fan of TVR wires as they do not work well with heat and CD systems.
I hope I did not lead you too far astray.

JoeC,
What you have shown is the hardware to mount the support assembly to the cross member.
I am looking for the hardware that mounts the cross member to the sub frame.

Rob,
All spark plug ends were the same.
Look at the firing order of the L35 18436 57 2. The 5 and 7 wires were separated to keep the number 5 wire from ( cross-firing) inducing an unwanted spark in the number 7 plug. This can lead to detonation, preignition and broken parts.

Look in 67 AIM UPC U17 A4 it gives  location and measurements. 68 ,69 AIM gives location but does not give measurements.

426  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 crossmember to subframe mounting hardware on: July 11, 2010, 06:36:44 AM
JoeC,
Thanks, a picture of the original hardware would be perfect.
I have been trying to find a set for some time now but I am not sure what I am looking for, and a picture would defiantly help me in that endeavor.
I am also trying on TC but have had little responce considering the amount of hardware that was produced.
The only thing I think is correct is that the bolt is a 3/8-16 x ?  9/16 AF hex flange bolt with an A - w/ three hash marks on the head. I have no idea what the washers, L washers (?) and nuts look like.

Still need info
428  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 z28 carb Nuts and washers on: July 08, 2010, 08:25:18 PM
Mike,
69 AIM UPC Z28 A3 shows only production nuts being used.
Others on the site could verify that being correct.

JohnZ,
Thanks for the clarification.

430  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: header and trunk emblems on: July 08, 2010, 09:35:35 AM
Look at 68 AIM  UPC 11-13 A5 it shows correct placement of emblem on header panel.
Bob
on a 68 rsss l35 car should it have a camaro emblem 3916654 on the front header panel? my car has a repaint and i think the fools replaced the factory header panel. but the emblem is on the deck lid where it is supposed to be.
431  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 V32 rear bumper guard on: July 08, 2010, 09:11:25 AM
What is the length of the bolt and the OD of the washer ? The AMK is 15/16 long w/.88 OD washer but I believe that the OD is too small for the application.
Bob
FWIW both sides were the same - the #3 bolt with that captured thick/dished washer, nothing else.  The car was repainted (poorly, in a similar color) when I got it back in mid 80's so I'm not certain the bumper was ever off the car.  I noticed the washer on mine seems slightly larger in diameter than the 3872455 they show in the AMK catalog.  The bolt isn't all that long to start with, don't know if they'd have another washer underneath this or enough thread to accommodate one.
432  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / AIM Nor. or Nor.& Los. on: July 08, 2010, 08:22:55 AM
Does the AIM pertain to Nor. or Nor. and Los. built units? Where was the AIM as a document composed? I have noticed that some of the hardware used in Los. built units is of a different supplier than Nor. Would there be differences in structural components?

433  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 rally sport relay bracket on: July 08, 2010, 07:41:57 AM
Look at Z22 B6 view A that shows the correct placement of the holes.
You are correct about B7, but when using the AIM, sometimes the small details in the drawings are not completely correct but it is the best we have.
Look on TC ( restoration) where I have a discussion on this same topic and there are several examples of the bracket location.
Bob
I'll have to dig out old photos before it was restored.  Thought we replaced the RH fender, not the driver side.  One is original.  One cage nut could have been lost off the bracket at some point.  Odd though, looking at Z22 B7 it looks like they only show one screw 3855554.   
434  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 rally sport relay bracket on: July 07, 2010, 08:09:22 PM
Petes L48,
The relay bracket looks original but it is mounted incorrectly. The hole being used to mount the bracket is for the wiring harness. The factory drilled two additional holes forward of that hole. Get a copy of the 67 AIM (Assembly Instruction Manual ) and look under UPC Z22 B6 view A for the correct fender piercing. The AIM is not always completely correct but defiantly worth the $20.00 and I would suggest everyone have a copy , and even all three (67,68.69) years.
Bob
This is what was in my 11B LOS car, believed to be original

I also included a pic of the fender which is also believed to be original.  Only has one hole, and the bracket only has one cage nut but an available square hole for a second nut.

Petes L48,
I want to thank you for the great pictures but I still have one question. Was there a large washer under the bolt #3 with the captured washer?
It looks like the factory could have replaced #3(screw & L. washer asm.),#4(spl. washer) with a bolt and conical washer. The thick conical washer would have the same function as the L. washer and spl. washer.
Now, can any one confirm this that has an original 67 NOR V32 option. There may be a difference between LOS and NOR. bolts.
Bob
RE: the #3 bolt, I think this is what you were looking for.

Here's what was in my LOS 11Bcar, I believe these are original.
