I checked both my '67 L35's and they have the stamped clamp.
They are: original unrestored survivor - T0214MZ - 4B LOS and restored convertable T0308MW - 5B NOR

"Even if it started life as a standard 68 optioned up and had the right bits added later I'm happy to enjoy it for what it is, as is."
Perfect outlook!

   Enjoy it while you still can afford it and are healthy. Life is truly short and we all take health for granted. John Lennon said in a song (Beautiful Boy) Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans. Nothing is worse than keeping it as a garage queen and then you get sick or die and then someone else enjoys driving it. Sort of like people who work and save all their money and not spending some to enjoy what it can bring. When they die someone else with gets your savings and having a good time.

It is held in place by the clamping force from the nut and bolt

 I use Rust-Oleum gloss black engine enamel for the radiator and their caliper paint for the calipers.
 On the calipers I applied a coat of high heat primer first.

 I assume you are talking about the open element SS cleaners.
Both my 67 L35's have what looks like more than a semi-gloss  (but not a full gloss) base with matching black tops.

606  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: July 09, 2013, 05:07:47 PM
The second photo in reply #106 (Bob) is the first Camaro driveshaft I've ever seen with the heavy-duty Saginaw-type nylon-injected yokes and trunnions (vs. the usual retaining-ring design); I've only seen the injected design before on full-size cars with concentric isolation dampers.

Hi John,

  Here is the front yoke on my 67 4B LOS with the original 396/TH400 + drive shaft that uses injection.
The rear used the injection too.

 That looks to be a 67 thing before tags were used.
This link discusses that topic: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9739.0
The only thing I can think of for using paint dabs in 69 (if it was actually done and not that the manual was just not updated) is it was limited to mono springs. It's just a guess though.

608  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Sticky Throw out bearing? on: July 02, 2013, 12:48:44 PM
 Maybe a worn input shaft bearing retainer cover?
I've had one with a worn groove in it causing more of a hanging returning clutch along with a not so smooth peddle return.
The groove wasn't that deep neither to cause the problem.

Juts a thought.

 If you press your fingers on the rivets to hold them in place and gently pull the top center away from the firewall just a little to and see how much rust is there. It's likely surface oxidation and nothing more.

   Interesting...it had a winning bid from e***p and now it's relisted by the original seller again.
Either the e***p is a bogus bidder to drive the price up or he/she backed out.

Mike. I posted Chick's link because those were his findings. I have always left the dogbones natural. It's obvious the nuts and shims were not painted due to the assembly process. I did not immediately notice the nuts appeared black in the photo.
For some strange reason I didn't see any pictures in the links. After rebooting my PC do I now see what you are talking about.
So the control arm, dogbone and mounted bushing's was painted as a whole unit. I can accept that. Were the end washers and bolts painted black too? My thinking is the washers and bolts were added during assembly and torqued down once the full weight was on the chassis (motor, options, etc...). Or were they installed lose on the dogbone ends and painted along with the rest?

Originally, the upper control arms, dogbones, bolts and bushings were painted black as an assembly. Instead, many paint the dogbones Cast Blast/natural and leave the bushings and bolts unpainted.

I've never seen an unrestored car with the above components painted as you stated above. The pictures posted of those items painted looks like they've been spray canned at some point.   
  As I understand it only the control arm was painted black along with the dogbone, bushings and end caps and bolts as a whole unit, correct?
The shims and lock nuts were not painted black due to being assembled later.

It's an eye opener when you browse through their feedback on eBay with customers that don't give positive feedback. Some are down right direct insults to the customer.
  Of the few dealings I have had with HBC, they have been fine. But, the replies to customers on eBay sure do give me pause at times to buy from them.

 A vibration problem I had in my 67 rag top turned to be a bent drive shaft. Once I put in a new one the vibration was completely gone.
Something to consider.
