 Places like Home Depot. If I remember right it was off white in color.

 As I recall, the cement looked like rope calk that was pressed down.

  I looked at mine and I see the knockouts (not to be confused with the Wittek Noc-Outs  Cheesy ) are still in.

Re pops I bought were junk. They were a kit.

Same here.  It helps to hold the "tower" portion of the clamp with a set of pliers but the hardest part is keeping the screw to stay centered and not walking out of the little pocket.

Mike thanks for the ebay link.  But those clamps do not look like the ones on the L78 car (bypass hose).  Is your 67 like these or ebay?

Sorry for the hijack.

Hi Darrell,

  The bypass hose on the '67 has the same ones in your picture. For the heater hose though mine has the Corbin style ring clamps on both ends of both hoses. The only clamps to use a tower is on the larger radiator hoses. And in the case of the '67 LOS with K19 AIR, that too uses the tower design clamp.

 Where I work the pictures are filtered out by our web monitor appliance. I'll check when I get home and let you know.

 This site may be of help? I found this on ebay.

Kurt or anyone who has seen original rubber fuel lines,

  Does the SAE marked fuel line look original? Is that what was stamped on the lines back then?
I have seen those rubber stamps that has the word gas and some triangles on them as supposedly correct for these hoses.

Thanks,
Mike

 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  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 67-9 Fuel lines on: November 20, 2014, 09:07:43 PM
'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.

Regards

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.

Bob
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.

71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 L35 black lid wing nut shape on: November 18, 2014, 10:14:31 AM
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
Bob
My guess....the nut has been used for car model years prior.

Mike
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 L35 black lid wing nut shape on: November 17, 2014, 08:34:08 PM
 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,
Mike

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.

Mike
75  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.
