691  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Brake line and fuel line clamps and bolt finish on: April 02, 2009, 05:49:40 AM
I going through my Survivor '69 Z28.  All the current small parts I have purchased (Coil, PCV hose, etc.) do not exactly match the origionals.  I have only used a few items that were close enough [The battery tray nut was lost, and I had to used the tray assembly].

I have only two of the 4 origional fuel line hose clamps (two were broken).  The origionals have square ends and are slightly smaller.   Photo of origional and new below.

Where can I get origionals or correct replacement Fuel Line and PCV line clamps?

You can get the fuel line spring clips in olive color from most shops. I dont know where you can get the clips that have the squared off ends.

While showing my 67 Corvette at a Regional NCRS event in Charlotte I was called for the "mickey mouse" ear clips. The judges told me to file them down square and I would be good at the next show. So that is what I have done.

My Z/28 has the original squared off clips in olive color.

Soon I will be putting the interior, gauges, wiring harnesses, etc back in my car. Would it best to attach the wiring harness to the cluster, put all the bulbs in the cluster before trying to put the cluster back in the dash?  Lawrence



Perfect....it has been a year in a half since I took it out and that is the way I thought I remembered it coming out but just wanted to make sure.

Thanks John

That's the way the factory did it. Smiley

Would it best to attach the wiring harness to the cluster, put all the bulbs in the cluster before trying to put the cluster back in the dash? As opposed to putting the cluster in the dash then attaching the harness.

Thanks very much guys,

Jerry,

Is the type of radio that you saw the dealers put in the car long ago?

Any idea why my car would not have the ground strap piercings on the firewall but have the ground strap on the subframe/body?
rat pack is right about the motorola radio, my car was ordered with a deluxe interior an radio delete 

Actually, there was no such thing as "radio delete"; the radio wasn't standard equipment, so it couldn't be "deleted". The car was simply ordered without specifying the optional radio.

For background info this is the radio that came out of my car. My car has no ground strap piercings on the firewall but does have a ground strap on the subframe to the body. My car could have been ordered as a radio delete. I am trying to figure out if in fact this is a "jipper" radio as discussed earlier in this thread. Looks like an original Delco radio to me but I dont know an original from a "jipper". Can someone else tell me?

Sorry for the double post.
698  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Ground Straps on: March 22, 2009, 09:05:20 AM
What type of radio is this?

Oh I believe you. I just find it interesting.

Dealers bought jipper radios back then which cost 10 cents on the dollar compaired to a factory Delco GM radio.  Anyone who worked at a dealer in the 1960's will tell you the same story.

That is wild. My radio looks like a factory radio. Has all the stickers etc that make it look like a factory delco radio. I will post some pics. Not disputing the fact.
My car is a RS Z/28 with an endura bumper, pedal trim, full gauges, standard interior. Does not seem like they would have ordered it without a radio. But like you said a way to make a few extra bucks.

Your car was a factory radio delete car. 

Having lived the era, many of us who worked at dealerships know the tricks of the trade back then.  In many cases, when cars were ordered new, the dealer would write up a U63 radio but order the car without a radio.  When the car came in, dealers would install a lesser grade direct fit AM radio to make more money on the sale of the car.  This happened a lot.  When I worked at Miller Chevrolet, we had boxes of look a like radios in the parts dept that were to be installed in new cars.

Jerry McNeish's 69 Z/28 book lists the spray can paint Manufacturers and the part numbers to use for different gloss percentages realtive to the different parts on the car.
704  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Ground Straps on: March 15, 2009, 08:41:53 PM
My 69 Z/28 has an AM Radio and the firewall has no holes penetrated for the ground strap screws. I did find the original lower ground straps that attached to the subframe. Do you guys think that this was just over looked or did not all cars have ground straps when an am radio was ordered?

I dont think I am going to put ground straps on since they were not installed when new. The car came with a radio from the factory best I can tell.

Thanks,
