 If 68 is the same as 67 here are some pics of my original 67 04B LOS L35 fuel line paths in the engine compartment (excuse the rust on the frame clip from the exhaust manifold and the primer dust from another car restoration).
It still has the AC fuel pump and also the square edge clamps. I believe the fuel line to be original as it was on the car when I bought it in 1980.

'69 L78 gas line, unmolested, clip missing (you can see the outline where it mounted to the gas line).

Line is intact, doesn't appear to have been bent or mangled other than missing the last two clips.


May have had headers too. I see a familiar mod to cutting away a part of the upper control arm edge at the rear bushing.
Only motor to get headers that close would be a big block.

I purchased a Gardner system last year and unfortunately the muffler problem reported by PaceCar Jeff still exists. You're right Chick, they do offer the best of what's out there and all of the rest of the exhaust system components are spot on in terms of quality and correctness. It's too bad the muffler problem hasn't been corrected.

WOW......that QC issue with the muffler is still around? For the kind of money he charges for the system it should be nothing short of perfect.

Anyone know why the chrome wing nut 219281 would have a 6 digit part number assigned instead of the conventional 7 digit number 9418699?
Just curious. Grin
My guess....the nut has been used for car model years prior.

 Here is a picture of the top views.
I'm inclined to think that it is a supplier change as you indicate, Kurt. This nut has been on the car since I bought it
34 years ago so I can only assume it is original. My thinking is the larger wings make it more comfortable to loosen a nut that is too tight.

Thank You,

Hi Bob,

  Thanks for chiming in. I'll post top views when I get home today.
Interesting find in the AIM. I didn't look at the 6 cyl portions.

Hi Bob,

  What was the difference between the two versions? Bolt centers?
I can look ay my 04B and check.

53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69z rag joint on: November 12, 2014, 09:53:50 PM
 I think you are fine with the power steering joint you have. I just checked a '68 power steering box off a Camaro in the shed and it has the exact one you have including the ground wire and the area with no splines towards the center. The one Bill posted looks like a manual joint, which has the area with no splines towards the side. I also have a manual steering joint and its the same as Bill's.

54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69z rag joint on: November 12, 2014, 08:06:22 PM
 Isn't there a difference between manual vs. power steering rag joints for '69? I thought the spline area varied between the two.
69ZX...what does yours look like now?

55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Vacuum tube/ washer hose on: November 12, 2014, 03:19:11 PM
Should these hoses have the ribs?

It should. My 67 still has ribbed hoses from the washer fluid tank to the motor/pump and from the pump to the two nozzles.

56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Rear end date stamp 67 Norwood on: November 09, 2014, 10:40:53 PM

I believe the rears were made in batches and sat on racks until needed.
The gear ratio likely made a difference when a specific rear was used and that impacted the car build date vs. rear date period (ex: a more common 3:07 may have a closer date to car build vs. a 3.73) plus there was probably no 'rotate stock' practice.
More can be found here:

57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 67 L35 black lid wing nut shape on: November 09, 2014, 05:50:17 PM
Hello Group,

   I did search the CRG archives and couldn't find a definitive answer to my curiosity on these shapes.
Attached is an image of the two different style wing nuts used on my 67 L35 Camaros.
As you can see the LOS shape differs from the NOR shape. This is not to be confused with the
one available today that has a more pronounced bulge in the wing tab shapes similar to the NOR nut.
  Theses have been on the cars since I owned them since 1980. The archive did mention the shape of the nut on the LOS
was a correct for that period but the one from NOR is of question. I'm not sure if this is due to an engineering change in shape, the wrong one, or just a vendor variance (I doubt the vendor would change a shape without approval from GM).

  Can anyone shed some info on this? Is the NOR one correct? I also attached a picture from Ricks that has the same shape of the NOR nut.
My air cleaners are the black lid type used till mid '67 so no chrome nuts were used.

Thank You,

Hi Don,

 As I understand it, GM used a few contractors to make the nuts so the face marking could vary. I know you asked for a '69 but I did check my '67' which have the original nuts, and found the following:
67 04B LOS - waffle pattern on face - remains of zinc plating on all nuts
67 05B NOR - DMC stamped on the face - zinc plating on all nuts
I would think zinc would be used for a fastener like this.

60  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 Convertible switch picture on: November 03, 2014, 08:43:32 PM
Hi Ken,

  Here are 2 pictures of the switch. I made an error in my prior post about being secured with speed nuts.
In these pictures you can see the screw is secured by the switch body wings (one screw fell under the car when I removed the switch so only one is pictured).
When mounted under the dash, the switch rocker moves with no binding. The connector on the back can only go on one way being it is keyed.
  Let me know if you need any more information.

Good Luck!
