Don't know if '68 is the same, but my original '69 spoiler Z/28 has the bottom edge of the "by Chevrolet" bar 1-1/4" forward of the edge of the spoiler, and the outboard edge of the bar is 4-1/2" from the edge of the deck lid.

Sounds like you've got an open in the main power distribution circuit; not sure if '68 is like '69, but power is fed to the fuse block from the battery via a pigtail (from the + battery terminal) to a plastic junction block behind the battery, then from there to the horn relay, and from there via a big red wire into one of the multiple connectors on the engine compartment side of the fuse block. If the terminals in those connectors get corroded, resistance builds up (which creates heat), and the "big red wire" connection can go open due to partial melting/distortion of the cavity in the connector for that wire. I'd pull those connectors off and check the terminals for corrosion/misalignment.

The J294 is an internal scheduling code used only at Van Nuys; it's not related to the car's configuration.

Must be the passenger car 350 - all Corvette small-blocks were built at Flint.  Smiley

I don't have a '68 wiring diagram, but those items are all fed from the accessory buss in the fuse block - I'd look for a bad fuse, bad fuse clips, or a bad connection inside the fuse block for that circuit.

Everything seams to be working except: wiper motor, heater fan, radio. I have tested these systems directly from the battery and the wiper motor, fan blower etc work. But there is no juice at the fuse block. Do these systems get there power only after the key is in the on position?

Yup, those items only get power with the ignition in the "on" position.

69's didn't have the bright belt reveal moldings - different body design that year.  Smiley

There was no factory option for a right side outside mirror in '67, but it was available as a dealer-installed accessory item.
3849  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: What options came with the Z21 style trim group? on: April 08, 2006, 01:23:01 PM
And a Z/28 ordered with Z-21 (an X-33 car) didn't get the pinstripes.

What year car?
3851  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Camaro Z/28 front sway bar and power steering bracket on: April 06, 2006, 09:39:00 AM
Sounds like the car you're looking at has an older aftermarket (probably ADDCO) sway bar, and the guy on eBay doesn't know what he's talking about (as usual).
3852  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ride Height Measurements on: April 05, 2006, 11:15:22 AM
'69 ride heights are specified in terms of design front and rear suspension heights (spring deflection) and rocker-to-ground heights; there's a chart in the UPC 0 section (sheet A10) of the '69 Assembly Manual that shows how to measure them and gives the numbers for each tire size/option condition.
3853  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Instrument panel question(s) on: April 04, 2006, 12:53:47 PM
I have two real quick questions involving the restoration of my instrument panel.

1. I canít seem to be able to get the front light knob off. Does it unscrew??
2. I canít get the entire left ďastro ventĒ mechanism to release. I canít find the screws?

Any tip on actually taking the entire instrument panel display off so I can clean and restore it and putting it back on would be a huge help.

Thanks,

Nick p.


The back side of the left astro vent housing is a slip-fit with a foam seal into the Fisher Body duct attached to the plenum; it will pull straight out.
3854  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Z28 engine dates on: April 04, 2006, 12:47:28 PM
Engine assembly date (stamp pad date) typically precedes car final assembly date by 2-6 weeks, although there are many exceptions; the block casting date must (obviously) precede the pad stamp date.
3855  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Camaro Z/28 front sway bar and power steering bracket on: April 04, 2006, 12:42:38 PM
That's not a factory sway bar - all '69 Camaros used an 11/16" bar (except for the 13/16" bar on COPO 9737's); the end of the factory bar was nowhere near the upper ball joint (see photo below). The rear power steering pump bracket goes on top of the motormount, not between the mount and the block, as shown in the Assembly Manual.
