Thanks to all for the advice.   I just received the new harness from American Autowire.  I wrapped it and put it under the Christmas tree for the Wife (after all, it's her car!)

I'll let you know how the installation goes.

Happy Holidays,  Johnny B.

Thanks to all for your help and advice.

I decided to remove the entire dash harness.  I carefully removed it, making certain to identify and label every plug, etc, for re-installation.  It was a good decision to pull it.  I found [potential] problems every where.  Now I have saved up enough to purchase a new harness, including the headlight-door diode and courtesy lamps harnesses, and new dimmer switch.  I have found three vendors who can supply these parts.  They all are priced competitively.  I need advice on which is most reliable.   

These vendors are:  American Autowire, M & H, and Lectric Limited. 

Please help me.

JohnZ,

I have been in touch with both Lectric Limited and M&H.  Lectric Limited lists a Fuse Block Repair Kit for $110, however all existing '67 stock is reserved for Dash Harness Kits, so I would need to purchase a complete dash harness for $386.  M&H would sell me a fuse block for $140.  They also recommend I buy a complete dash harness (same price as Lectric Limited).

I am intimidated by the prospect of replacing the entire dash harness (plus, I can't afford the cost).  This little repair project is turning into a major rebuild.  Everything I look at is in need of upgrade, thus I resist tearing it apart any further.

Thanks again for your help.  If you know of anyone who has successfully removed the fuse clips and connectors from a fuse block in order to clean them up, please let me know.

Regards,  John B.

I am new to the CRG forum searching for help with my 67CamaroRS: Corroded Fusebox.  (See [author=jmburkhart link=topic=7221.msg47520#msg47520 date=1287945329])

I searched the forum for "fusebox" and found a reply from [author=hotrod68 link=topic=1134.msg6407#msg6407 date=1157687718] in Decoding/Numbers Re:cowl trim tag, dated 09/05/06.  I send an email to the address listed in his profile, but it kicked back as undeliverable. 

I would like to ask hotrod68 for details on how he replaced or replated some of the fuse clips and terminals in his fusebox as he stated in his reply.  I have tried to remove them with no success.
 
Thanks for your help.

I am new to the forum.

I have searched extensively for help with this problem, with no success.  Need help!

While troubleshooting electrical problems on my 67 RS, I have found the fuse clips and connectors in the fusebox to be corroded.  I would like to remove the clips and connectors to clean them up, but having no luck.  Any suggestions?  I have searched for a replacement unit, finding only the modern sytle retrofit kits.

I also need to replace the indexed connector to the ignition switch.  It has melted at the brown wire (ACC).  In my searches, I have found a replacement wiring harnesses that comes with that connector, but I can't afford it.

Thank you for your help.
