Looks like C-C in several of the photos in Album #1.

There is a total of three albums at the Lucas Restorations site.....If you want to see the complete restoration see the below three links to them.

     Album #1 - https://plus.google.com/photos/107644629042187560326/albums/5254626687404326817?banner=pwa

     Album  #2 - https://plus.google.com/photos/107644629042187560326/albums/5254630737476855265?banner=pwa

      Album #3 - https://plus.google.com/photos/107644629042187560326/albums/5254634173615049921?banner=pwa

Had to edit the Album #3 link....the first time I posted the #2 again.  Now it has been corrected.

I sent an E-mail today to Larry Eakin and asked if the site is still active or dormant.  Will post status when and if I receive a reply.
Just received an answer from Larry and it says......

Jerry,

Thanks for the email. I have been collecting data but have not updated the webiste. I need to find a new webmaster to do that. I'm working on finding one.

Take care
Larry


So it appears Larry is still collecting the data but hasn't edited anything on the website.

Check the "Supplemental Operating Instructions" sheet that is in the photos.  Printed on the sheet is "Turbo-Jet 396 Engine" and "Turbo Hydra-Matic Transmission".  So I would think that it probably did have the automatic originally.
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Battery Ground Cable on: February 04, 2015, 08:09:05 PM
I just realized that both of my cables appear to be original, they have just had the ends cut? Are these numbers correct for my May '68 Camaro? ... D
  
   Positive = 6290590BV
   Negative = 2986167EH
Danny.....FYI, my Z28 has the same numbers on the cables.

     Measurements
       Positive - 6290590BV  (50 " - center of battery terminal to the starter terminal bend)
       Negative - 2986867EH  (22 1/8" - center of battery terminal to the center of the starter terminal)

Bob....Only other explanation I can imagine is that the correct hardware supply was depleted and they had to substitute.  Strange things did happen to keep the system running.

Yes.....the plastic parts do tend to deteriorate and break over time.  Always hate to use the reproduction parts but sometimes the repair of the original is impossible and you have to bite the bullet.
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Console Screw - 9421137 on: February 03, 2015, 12:35:34 PM
I've worked on many consoles. All had phillips for #2. IIRC, Home Depot had an exact replacement.

Thanks Kurt. For whatever reason, they must have been changed by a PO.

Bob
Are you sure that is an original console?  If not factory original, then it might be a reproduction.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Console Screw - 9421137 on: February 02, 2015, 08:42:16 PM
My 1968 has phillips in the easily seen locations.

I presume you are referring to the "Elbow".....there are two listed in the parts manual.

     1.  #3954219 - 1969/396  325hp or 350hp   (There was a note on the Aim that there was another part number used earlier and the number for it was #444052)
     2.  #3954220 - 1969/396  375hp

Here is a link that shows the elbow #3954219.......http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/581053/big-block-oil-fitting-brass-el
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: bolts on: January 15, 2015, 05:16:22 PM
Making a SWAG here but.....

     1.  The #33622 is probably the stock number
     2.  L/W is probably short for Lock Washer
     3.  3/8 is probably the L/W size
     4.  300 is probably the quantity in the bag.
Did a search and found that the #33622 is assigned to a 3/8 Lock Washer on the Fastenal web site but I didn't find the exact quantity as listed on the bag.  I have bought bolts, nuts, and washers from the Fastenal stores and they will put them in a bag for you and I can see them writing the info on the bag.

I would think that the bolts in the zip lock bag have nothing to do with the writing on the bag.  So as previously mentioned by Danny, several close-up photos of the bolts from all angles would be needed for the possible identification.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Dip stick on: January 07, 2015, 06:19:57 PM
As far as the correct 67 Big block dipstick tube, The parts list states 3899640 for 396/427 except HP. I could not find a tube for HP. Is it the same tube?
According to the 1967 AIM, the L78 engine tube is the same as the L35.  My July 1969 Master Parts Catalog for Camaro list only one part number for the 396ci and it is 3899640.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1968 Belgium Factory Assembled Camaro on: December 15, 2014, 02:11:06 PM
Question to anyone that knows, is there a preformed plate for the tunnel to make room for the Hurst 4 speed shifter linkage?  Any help is appreciated.  Also, anyone interested, has original Belgium title and import documents.
Sten.....The original factory shifter and linkage for the 1968 Camaro was the Muncie.  The Hurst shifter and linkage was factory installed in the 1969 Camaro.  If you want a Hurst shifter and linkage for the 1968, you need to purchase the Competition Plus aftermarket version and here is a link to the Hurst site displaying the shifter and installation kit for the Camaro.......http://www.hurst-shifters.com/products/3914339-manual-shifter-competition-plus-shifter/?mk=&yr=&md=&sm=&e=

Here is a link to the installation instructions, for your reference, that will display all the parts and numbers included in the kit.....http://www.jegs.com/InstallationInstructions/500/530/530-373-4529.pdf
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: exhaust manifold torque small block on: December 10, 2014, 06:36:08 PM
I think I've seen in a Haynes manual that the readings should be.....20 ft/lbs on the outer and 30 ft/lbs on the inner.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Motors Built Before Installed on: November 27, 2014, 12:03:18 PM
Depends on a lot of things.  The more popular a power plant, the faster they went through them.  Rare combinations are going to see more variation from time an engine was built to the time it was installed.  

-Mark.
For an example of an extended gap.....my 68 07C Z has an engine build date of 06-19.
