Daniel,

Yes, that was a 'kick panel' fastener, NOT the A pillar ....  OOOPS!   :)

Marty:  Yes, it could be an A...   appears the same as yours, and yours is clearly an 'A'  ..  I couldn't see it that well on my fasteners.. but obviously the same head marking..

From all the 'wrong' items on that car, restampings, etc... I agree with the poster from the earlier thread, wihch basically questioned *everything* on the car..  in fact, that car, although Yes, it's very *pretty*, could even be a complete *klone* built from 'new' parts and restampings...??
Has anyone ever tallied up a complete camaro built from the repro panels and parts?   Can someone do that, and throw in a few 'restamped' mechanical parts, a 'repro' cowl tag, and then try to make $$ on the deal by passing it off as a restpred 'real car' ??

You asked about 'other' Phillips screws, so I took a quick look while checking out the glovebox screws, and found these:
1)  End of dash pad - rounded head, dark phosphate phillips - no apparent washer, but I didn't remove the screw...  (see photo)

2) End of dash - rounded headed dark phosphate phillips with washer - I didn't remove it so don't know if it is captive washer or not ..(see photo)

3)  A-pillar trim - light colored flat head phillips (again, I didn't remove the screw).. see photo.

Marty,

I examined some of the screws and fasteners this morning that you requested.
1)  The cowl vent screws (4 of them) are all identical (1/4" head, with 5/8" captive washer, w/ head marking the same as the prev photo showed - 2 concentric circles with 'delta' symbol inside.  Screw threads are 1/2" long.   Yes, it appears Dave's fasteners are the same as mine.
2)  The screws - also in the cowl vent panel - which retain the squirter hard lines, are also identical.  1/4 hex with a small shoulder, 1/4" long threads..   both are identical on my car and do not have any head marking).
3)  I removed one of the retainer screws from the glove compartment box.   It is 1/2" long, rounded head phillips , with an apparent dark phosphate coloring.  (photos attached).

Steve,  If your snorkel is the same as 'original', and you want to sell it..  I'm interested..

Kevin:   I measured the vent tube diameter of my A/C...   it is 1 inch in diameter....

The head marking appeared to be 2 concentric circles with some kind of 'delta' symbol inside it..?  but my vision these days is about as bad as my cameras.. :)

I will check on the glove compartment screws tonight and let you know...  I am thinking that is a phillips, but am unsure til I check...

It's interesting that you mention 'cut off snorkel'..  Mine has that (was cut off about an inch away from the housing) when I bought it in '76.   In '76, Z28's with cowl were so 'rare' (unlike today), I thought that it might have been 'original'..  :)     NOW I'm looking for a full snorkel so I can 'fix' that cut off one..  :)

Hi Bill,

I went down and took a photo; it appears to be a continuous 90 deg bend to me.    What is the significance of the 90 versus 2 45 deg bends??  My car is an 09C (Sept 69).   This is the ac that was on the car in '76 when I purchased it..  didn't appear to have been added on (all original components).. so I believe it is original to the car...

Marty,

I bought a new camera which is slightly better than the old one, and I'm enclosing a photo of the original fastener from my car (WW tube hold down)..  PN 447143..  note that this is not a phillips screw, but instead is a hex fastener...

I'm curious what kind of oil would be leaking from a fuel pump?  If they have 'sealed oil' inside of them, it couldn't be very much.. I'd have thought any internal lubrication would be a heavier grease, not oil?  typically if there's oil leaking, it would be from the engine oiling system, running down the fuel pump push rod, and leaking from the gaskets on the cover plate or the gasket for pump installation.   Engine oil can also leak from one of the front bolt holes that go into push rod the passage way; that hole needs a short bolt installed with sealer on the threads.   In short, maybe you don't have a leaking fuel pump...  :)  but instead a simple problem that you can address yourself...
