X2  There is a small plastic ring that insultes the spring plate from the wheel's center hub - it looks like yours is missing in action. The part is hard to see in the link sent, but look closely and you will see it around the metal spring plate. Hope this helps.

Check your AIM, UPC 12, C2, Pg 176 for the standard wheel. Sorry I can't help more, but I have a RS with the shroud type wheel. If you don't have an AIM, there's a free download under the General discussions forum.

My early production '67 (L30) has no step in the tube  (other than the portion that goes into the intake manifold), and no tab for the return spring. Sorry I am not near the vehicle for pics. Hope this helps.

Looks like Evap-o-rust to me.
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Convertible Spare Tire Bracket on: November 27, 2013, 06:16:58 PM
  I have a 67 convert, with the full size spare tire (14"), and will measure the location via the hole in the original factory trunk mat, if no one chimes in, as I have provided pics of the mat / hole to other members, and I believe the location is the same for 67 / 68, as long as it's the full size spare, and a convertible. PM me if you need pics or measurements. I replaced the complete trunk pan in my car and currently don't have the "J" hook mount plate installed.

 elcamino72,

  I have pics of two original caps (one from a '66 production vehicle, and one from a '67 production - with indents in top of the cap) that came off of '67's with the open pcv system, and I will send them to your posted email asap - hope they help. GW

p.s. you can repost or share these pics if you wish.

  I believe the cap you show in your post is for the "closed" pcv system  (RPO K24 shown in the AIM @ K24, sheet A2, page 267), that system has the pcv valve threaded into the  oil fill stand pipe, while the "open" system (shown in the AIM @ UPC L30, sheet A3, page 279, used the cap with the mesh in it. I personally spent a lot of time researching this very issue, and viewed some survivors before making my decision as to which cap was correct. Hope this helps to clear up these questions. JMO

You should be able to look them up at GM Parts WIKI. Google says Chevele deluxe rear panel trim clips, didn't specify the year.

My 10B LOS '67 was purchased in Newton, Iowa. FWIW

Upscope,

  I emailed pics of my 67's original rockers black out paint (10B). Hope they help. GW

If I remember correctly, That shield was used only on the early powerglides that had manual kickdown linkages (as per John Z). Not sure if they still used the powerglide with manual linkage rods, etc.. in the '69 model year, would refer to the AIM.  My '67 Camaro with PG has that same shield, FWIW

I should have mentioned I use lots of drier sheets (change them out as the smell starts to go) as well, to keep the mice away, plus the car smells good too (added bonus).

Danny - yes I usually start it, let it get up to temp (and off high idle), then just run it through the gears, witout using any accelerator. It may be my OCD kicking in, but I have seen many components taken apart with rust above the lube line - I.E. Differentials and manual transmissions, that have been sitting for long periods. I always like to take the load off the springs as well, it keeps you at the specified ride height for a lot longer time (years), if you don't use your vehicle as a daily driver. JMO

I also store in a heated garage in a colder winter climate, and found I must monitor the humidity as well. I also jack the car up to relax the springs, and allow me to ocassionally start and run the vehicle through the gears to keep the oil on the appropriate parts. If your vehicle is an automatic, it also helps to keep the oil in the torque converter, as some older units tend to drain down over time, overfilling the pan, and you will have the trans oil coming out the vent, onto your garage floor. I always lower the windows a bit to keep temps and humidity levels equal as well. JMO

My 67 L-30 (610B, with wire) has an engine assy date of 0812 if you would like to update.

My '67 10B LOS L-30 has the wire clamp. FWIW
