Your's is the 2nd set of nos guards and hardware I have seen and they are both the same, including hardware, good find. What is the O.D. and how thick was the washer in your kit?
Now the question remains , at least for me, what hardware was used on the original factory 67,68 installation.
Did the lower hex machine screw asm. have an inside lock washer or was it a conical washer like the one's used in the nos assembly.
The 67,68 AIM shows a wielded on nut on the lower bracket but all I have seen have a pierced hole with 3/8-16 threads.
Thanks for the responce, greatly appreciated.
Bob

Here is some nos hardware from some nos rear bumper guards I have. I am not positive these are just like the factory installed ones.
Scroll down for the pics I posted on TC.

Correct.
I guess the info I'm trying to understand is the type of ground used at the top of the cluster.  The info seems to be that the round stiff wire around the high beam indicator is what came in 67's and was maybe used for some early 68's.  The flat strip was a later year change and is what should be on my car build date.  Then the additional ground wire at the bottom was added early in 1968 (which I have).

Petes L48,
Thank you for your responce.
Your description of #5 bolt has been confirmed by another member.
Your description of #3 bolt brings up a couple questions that you can confirm when you next visit your ride.

1-A is it a hex bolt w/a point? B is it a hex flange bolt w/a point? C is hex machine screw w/a point?

2-A is the star lock washer inside or outside? B is the lock washer captured to the #3 bolt (assembly)?

Head markings.

Is the #4 washer 1-flat? 2-conical? 3-conical w/dimples? 4-O.D. of washer and how thick?

I know this is allot to ask but I would like to rebuild my ride as correctly as possible.
Thanks again.
Bob

Yes, and you should have the additional ground wire on the back of the cluster.
My car has the same ground strap pictured in reply #9. Hope this helps, RonM.

So, some time after Jan 2 1968, certainly in time for my car, it would have changed from the wire around the high beam light to the flat strip.

So no one has a 67 with original RPO V32 rear bumper guards? I would have thought with 35,000 being produced a couple would have survived.
How about a 68, uses the same procedures and parts.
If no picture available , how about a description?

Your 05D ( May 4th week 68 ) should have the B2 view A setup. What is the date on the circuit board on the back of the cluster?
Well, I finally got under my dash and took it out part-way.  I have the wire, B2 view A and I have the solid round strap that goes to the high beam light B3 by the #7 bulb.  Not the flat strip like on post #9.  This would be correct for an 05D?

Mark,
Thanks for the info. and picture.
Did not think to try Team Camaro and I am a member.
With almost 9,000 low HP BB's built, I wonder how many had AC?
It is obvious that not many,if any of the shields survived.

Thanks again.

RonM,
Great info.,Flyingskibiker's 11C 67 build could have been built with the additional ground wire. The only question left, did any of the early production 68's have the small ground wire instead of the strap?
Just wondering, is the service bulletins binder something you can purchase or is it a private thing.
Thanks
Bob

I'm putting the dash back together this weekend so right now I can look at everything you guys are talking about. My car is an 07D and it has both the cluster ground strap and the cluster ground wire. In addition I have a service bulletins binder for the '68 models and it shows the ground wire coming into effect on vehicles built after October '67. Hope this helps, RonM.

John Z,
Do you remember if photo was of an original shield and hardware?
I've never put my hands on a real one, but see the photo below; it's plastic.
430  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 AC lower shield on: May 29, 2010, 08:37:18 PM
Do you remember if there was a 5/16 bolt with washer (assembly) or bolt and washer separate. Was the bolt pointed on the end or flat with a cut out so that it could cut  threads?
Bob
I had one on my car back in 76,it was beat up so I threw it away Sad Went to the Chevy dealer to get a new one,they did not have any,& I havent seen one since!I believe they were 5/16 machine screws holding it in place!
431  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Ground strap speedo pod on: May 29, 2010, 07:39:32 PM
flyingskibiker,
Great pictures of a 68 cluster.
In the first picture, is the lockwasher impression in the metal ground strap original, or was it something you added?
The 05D 68 build that 68zproject has should look like the cluster you have. except it should have the additional ground wire.
I wonder if that revision ever made it into production. Maybe someone with a late 68 build date (02 68>) could answer that question.
Bob

JohnZ,
You have made my day, exactly what I was looking for . Great picture with allot of detail.
The A.I.M. calls for #4 screw and#5 washer, but picture looks like a machine screw w/conical washer (Assembly). Your thought?
Thanks again for your continued input.
Bob

If your build date is 11C 67, then I think you have the correct ground system, if you do not have the ground wire (view A#6). RPO U17 gages would have no interaction with the cluster ground system.
Looking at UPC 12 B2, do you have the ground wire ( view A) # 6 ?
Yah, mine looks like (through a little inspection mirror and a cramped neck) the socket has an integral strap that runs up to the screw above.  I don't see anything like that metal(?) wire in B3...  There is nothing around/under the socket screws or anything.  But I DO have console w/ gages.  Would that make a difference?  I have a 11C '68.
434  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Ground strap speedo pod on: May 28, 2010, 10:15:26 PM
You can get one off a 67. Take the broken wire and go to the hobby shop and they can fix you up with the wire you need (airplane landing gear). What is the build date on your ride?
Bob
There looks to be two.  The page you were on shows something that looks like the HBC ground strap that the Screw #1 goes to.  The one I was thinking of is on page B3 and goes around the socket for the high beam indicator.  Mine is broken and I was looking for a repro of that and can't find one.
