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

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?

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.

Yeah. That looks awesome. Especially with the black stripe accent.

I like the tops on some colors but I never liked them on 69. The body color on the drip rail leading to the trim with the vinyl edge is way too busy of a design detail to compliment the rest of the body. I like the designs of the 68 and 67. The 69 design makes it look like its going bald to me.

I have been thnking of putting the top back on my 68 as it should have it. I am on the fence though.

Thanks for the links. I have read these before but have not gained clarity. The images are missing from the posts and the statement below provides the diameter dim but not enough detail as to what I am looking for as the part number is not present on the clutch.
"All three fans have a 3-inch diameter clutch-to-fan attachment bolt circle. Three different fan clutch part numbers are listed as having been used with these fans, all having the matching 3-inch diameter bolt circle."

No where is it stated that the 69 Eaton is the same design as the 1968 for sb with AC. If they are it helps as there is a pic of one side. Can you clarify this or am I missing a detail between the lines.
Thanks,
John
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 fan clutch with AC on: February 13, 2011, 11:46:57 AM
Hey team,

 I am looking for a rebuildable fan clutch for a 1968 SS 350 with AC. I have come across many and keep buying the wrong ones as I do not know what this clutch looks like.

Can anyone inform me as to what they looked like? I was informed that the after market ones are a new design for this application and are visually incorrect.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
John

69 Fan Clutch in nice shape, not sure how rare these are so I figured I would share.

Too bad. It would look better sitting in a cradle in the shop next to the original car for that price.

Steve,

The tools were produced. I only have kept one of them that was useful for disassmbling the front end. I do not have the manual handy at the moment, it was the tool that has a bung on the bottom of a plate and drops into a jack when you remove the lifting plate. It  has a support for both ends for the control arm. You apply pressure with the jack, pull the bolts for the lower control arm and slowly lower the jack to remove the spring. Very painless and no worries about losing control of the pressure from the spring. No scratches on your control arms either.

If you are inteterested you can make them or punch in the part numbers in ebay every once in awhile. They will often show up by part number with the seller not having any idea what they are for.

Good luck,
John
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Chid seat in 1st gen on: August 11, 2010, 08:58:57 PM
Anyone have recommendations on how best to travel with a three year old in a 1st gen safely? I have been using a car seat facing forward but the front seat doesn't slide forward enough for him any more. I was thinking of trying a booster but have not seen anyone using one locally. Any thoughts on what to do? Traveling with my son is one of the things I enjoy most about having the ride because of how excited he gets to go cruising.

Thanks,
John
