466  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 BB L78 oil dipstick on: September 09, 2008, 09:32:43 PM
Update:
Received information from Steve 68 (he has a 68 P&A) that verifies that the original 68,69 dipstick #3925599 with A measurement 19 17/32 and B measurement 20 11/32 is correct. The stick does not have a part # on it only full mark and add mark with "Engine Oil M " It has a yellow plastic insert and this is verified in the 68 AIM L35 A4 page 279.
 John Z made most of this information available in another thread.
I hope to have more information on the 67 BB dipstick soon.

Steve,
Could you verify the following:
67 P&A 1.516 gauge
65-66 Pass 396,427
66-67 Chevelle, Camaro 396 3925520     A measurement 17 13/32  B measurement 18 1/2
67 P&A 1.516 tube
What does your 67 P&A specify for a 67 Camaro 396 ? The following is what my 69 P&A shows:
65-66 Pass, Chevelle 396,427 3870324
    67 Pass, Chevelle 396/427 exc. H/Per. 3899640
3925520 was substituted with 3959158, is that Oct, 2001?
All your 68 #'s are the same in my 69 P&A.
Thanks for taking the time to respond.

I posted it over on pacer car sight one person told me they had a black tip 396/325 horse car ill keep you up to date also the part no# i have on the oil pan were from a 74 part book that should the 67 pan by itself
Phil,
The closer we can get our reference material ( GM P&A. AIM rev. dates) to the build date, the information I believe will be more accurate.
If you find a 67,68 P&A for sale ( and you do not want it) I will buy it.

Phil,
The  rev. 10-1 69 GM 69 P&A (Parts Book) that I am using only shows one oil pan 3958657 (group # 1.426) for 65-69 Chevelle and Camaro. I was hoping that someone would have  a 67-68 P&A that could verify these numbers.
I think the pans are the same because the sub frames (67,68,69 Camaro) are alike except for frame to engine mounts and some minor stampings ( front rad. support rails etc.).
The 67 dipstick and tube are at least 2" shorter than the 68,69. I think the  reason for the redesign in 68.69 was the C60  AC option for BB's
Let me know if you find anything to the contrary.

470  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 BB L78 oil dipstick on: September 06, 2008, 07:21:41 PM
should have a salmon tip on the end, also check to see if its the same as a 66 67 chevelle bb cars I believe they are. Phil
Phil,
The salmon tips were used on 65-67E Corvettes and the changed to wht. in late 67L. Pan 3958657 was used on 67,68,69 Chevelle & Camaros.
Look at post in Originality to see what I found on the subject.
Waiting to see if anyone can verify the information as correct or not. Just because it's written in a book does not mean it's correct!

Update,
Did a little more research between the 69 GM Parts Book and all 3 (67,68,69) assembly manuals (AIM or is that AM) and here is the following results.
67      AIM page 287 L35 A4   Dipstick 3925520 Purple insert.
                                     Tube    3899640
68,69 AIM page 279 L35 A4   Dipstick 3925599 Yel. insert.
                                      Tube   3928901
All numbers confirmed in 69 GM Parts Book (PB).
The 69 PB shows only one pan being used (camaro 3958657) so I conclude that the 67 dipstick is somewhat shorter than the 68, 69. I also have to conclude that the L78 uses the same dipstick & tube as the 67 L35.
Can anyone verify these results with an original 67 .
Are these dipsticks and tubes correct for judging?

474  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / correct dipstick and tube BB L78 on: September 05, 2008, 10:54:34 AM
While doing a search, found a reply from John Z. that indicated that there was no part # on the stick only Full & Add marks, "Engine Oil M ". The finish was ( Noblecoating)  and the handle has a yel. plastic insert.Would this description hold  true for the 67 BB L78 ?
The reason I ask, is that the 69 GM parts book shows a different length between the Full & Add marks between the 67 & 68, 69 and a shorter distance between these marks and the rubber insert on the handle.
Does this difference mean there is also a difference in the tube design Or length ?
I notice that there are reproductions (excuse the word) of the 68,69 tubes but haven't seen one for the 67. Is this an indication that there is a difference in the 67 tube?
The 69 parts book has  a specific part # for the 67 dipstick (3902399) and tube (3899640). Does anyone have a 67,68 parts book that could verify?
Just confused. Huh

To all,
Trying to find correct dipstick and tube for 67 BB. Tryed search but only found responce from John Z that it did not have a part #  but had full & add marks also had " Engine Oil M"on the stick. Did that apply to the 67 as 68,69 had different dipsticks ? What was the shape of the handle, was it a round tube and did it have a color coded plastic tip? Anyone have a picture of a original ?
Jerry M. I know you are a small block man but do you have any idea what is correct for a 67 BB L78.

Did you need any pics for your conversion.  I did the same and love the seat.  I use the crap out of that seat for groceries and car show chairs and cooler storage.
I could use some pictures of the latch and covers !

Jerry,
Is the trunk latch hardware for the 67 also not painted?

John, thanks for the reply.
Looking at the 67 A.M. page 374 the caption [ HYDRAULIC STEERING 396 ENG EXCEPTIONS ( RPO L35- L78 ) ], I take the word Exceptions to mean that  sheet is to be used for the assembly of L35 and L78. Am I interpreting this correctly ?
Will be at Camaro Nats. in a couple of weeks and hope to meet you and Jerry.
Again thanks for your help.

Joe , thanks for the reply .

I am in the process of building a 67 w/BB and thought I new the correct components for the power steering system .
The 67 assembly manual shows on page 374 ,2 sleeves, 1 clamp and a clip ( part of steering gear ) and on page 370 it only shows the sleeves and the clamp ( no clip ).
The 68 A.M. shows on page 375 the same as 67 A.M. page 374.
The 69 A.M. shows on page 405 2 sleeves, 1 clip, 1 clamp and a clip ( part of steering gear ) .
I bought a very late 68 ss/rs/396 ( in 69 - July or Aug. delivery ) and it had the 69 set up. I am not sure if it had 1 or 2 sleeves.
Also need to know if the return line hose uses screw or pinch type clamps an optional clamp ( 9424894 ) is shown ?
John Z or Jerry do you have any thoughts on this topic ?

Bob C
