Bob,

Which clip do you have? Installation will depend on that. There are a few that I know off. The plated one pictured below hooks vertically onto the throttle arm. It does not use a screw. This clip design has a larger hole located higher on the part and relies on the throttle lineage pin to go through it with the standard cotter pin to hold it in place.

The other designs used the screw. I do not recall which one I installed after restoring the car. I will check to see if I have the screw. It was a black oxide finish.

I can shoot my factory installed 68 clip and screw if you would like. Let me know if that would get what you would like.

BC,

Which one is in the Aim? I do not recall as i do not have an AIM.

The turn signal arm I posted is what is used on a 1968 factory and dealer installation. Smooth and chrome plated ABS. The replacement is Black and a different shape. I have never seen a 1967 turn signal arm. Do you know the ribbed arm to be original? Is it a metal casting or plated plastic?

Hey Bob, I hope all is well. Lets get on the phone and catch up.

BC,
Here is another image of the first clip design compliments of Big Iron from a few years ago.

Also, this is the lever on a 68. There was a service replacement part used for both 67 and 68 applications available that you could buy through the dealer but was discontinued in the mid 1990's. The replacement was black but used the same switch, wiring harness and arm. The plastic end was redesigned. I have one somewhere I could dig up if someone needed to see it.

Sorry for delay BC,

I have the images. Let me know what you would like to see. I have two clips. One  installed is showing an installation of a factory system that was moved to a car at Ricks First gen. Sorry bu t that is the best quality image they provided me. the other is from a dealer system that had a part design change. This clip was never installed. It would use the threaded punched hole on the throttle arm for a single fastener. It was installed vertically with the return wrapping around the edge of the arm to the other side to hold it in position. the two prongs or fork grabbed the ball chain.

Sure. I believe I have photos of both. I can send them to you or post here. The files are on a drive at work and I have off tomorrow. Does Thursday work?

Cheers,
John

Bc69 - The throttle clip is a different design. This attaches the ball chain to the throttle arm that runs up from the accelerator assembly. The arm has a hole located in it for a mounting screw to mount the clip for factory installed cruise. One clip wraps around while the other is only edge located. The other main difference is in the design of the transducer. The input location is different on the dealer transducers I have seen. This could have been a running change. The finish and overall appearance is the same.

A rare part is the turn signal arm. This was injection molded ABS and Chrome plated. The lack of structural ribbing on the part often led to them breaking just past the end of the steel arm due to fatigue. GM had a black plastic replacement part that used the same switch and connector that is more commonly seen on heavily driven cars.

I hope that helps.

Sorry guys, I've been MIA for awhile.

Let me know if you still need the instructions. I shared them around a few years back. The set I sent previously was what came in a complete system box for Dealer installation that was packaged by the manufacturing plant. I still have an extra setup that i photographed extensively that shows all parts needed for a full installation as it came out of the box. There are a couple of minor differences between the dealer install kit and the factory installed system that came on my Camaro.

Hey Big Iron, I hope all is well. PM me your number so we can catch up. Its been an interesting few years with lots of changes. All good though.

BC69,
Let me know what info you are looking for and i will see what I can help you with. Shoot me a pm and if it helps we can post it on here.

Sorry for the delay, i wasn't getting email notifications and hadn't checked in here in awhile.

Cheers,
John

That's the one. Not reproduced and very difficult to come by. Looks great.

John

Mike is correct. In 68 the stove pipe was blk, the stove was galv. The one pictured is not correct for the year. A 68 stove is wide and channels heat from the full length of the manifold and is a single piece stamping, unlike the 69 assembly design.

I see that the older pic posts were not recovered. I can post a pic of the assembly it it helps. The finish on my stove is not correct yet however.

Cheers,
John

Welcome to the forum. You will find a lot of knowledge here. Can you post a pic? It will help understand what is going on.

Thanks,
John

Is the hose running from the cleaner side to the crank case the original setup? What markings are on that hose? As I understand it, the 69 switched over to a steel line. I have a 68 and was missing this hose. Were spring clamps used on this?

Thanks for the help. Joe - Did you still need the auto setup images?
John
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 ss 350 air cleaner on: March 07, 2011, 05:58:49 PM
Th automatic ss350 cleaner had a heat stove and pipe directed to the exhaust manifold that started at the snorkel. Do a search on here and you will see other discussions with pics of an Auto setup. If you can't find it I can post them. Just need to find them.

Cheers,
John

Here is mine as requested earlier. As I said, I am not sure about the top. It is suposed to have one but I really like the sail panels without it.

Design trends and exposure to influencers alter perception of value heavily. Different age groups are attracted to products due to trends that are not always prevalent to those in other groups. The debate will always be a personal one.
