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.......

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.

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.

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.......

Here is a link to the installation instructions, for your reference, that will display all the parts and numbers included in the kit.....

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.

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.  

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

Or " refresh "
Yup....Internet Explorer calls it "refresh".....Firefox calls it "Reload Page".

Buy with confidence!! How do the ebay ads have text that runs all over itself like that? It's annoying.
Just reload the page and all the stacking will clear up.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Vin for data base on: November 06, 2014, 05:42:06 PM
According to the '68 AIM, #3915077 is the transmission for L34, L35, & L48 engines.

Haven't cleaned my car belts with this but have used it on my tow truck belts......Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Tub and Tile Cleaner.  Don't have to degrease, it will do that for you....just spray on, let it absorb into the belt and scrub with a plastic bristle brush.  After cleaning, wipe down with paper towels and then rinse in warm water.  May have to repeat, but it will be worth the effort.  My truck belts looked like new when I finished.

Alternator is mounted in the smog pump mounting bracket.  Huh
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What's the correct Alternator bracket for a 69 Z/28 on: September 19, 2014, 07:16:58 PM
There is a split spacer on AMK that states that it fits 69-73 GM Smog Pumps.  There is no GM part number associated with it but the specs are.....

.39 ID x .51 Length x .49 OD

Might find someone that has an original and get them to check to see if theirs matches the specs on this one.

As far as these car being sequentially, I thought John Z. said cars that required more labor are spaced out so the production crew have more time to do the extra work. If I'm not mistaken  convertibles require more labor. Terry
I believe the body numbers were assigned when the order was received....they could schedule the numbers in any order they preferred.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Hours of body part install on: September 17, 2014, 02:02:11 PM
Here is an alternative for comparison....  You might want to search around the internet for "complete camaro body shell" and read up on the various sites that will build you a shell.  One of them found will even build you a complete rolling shell for $22,000.00.
