Hi Daniel,

 Was the look and texture close to the original?

The rubber side is near the bottom of the page. It sure looks close enough to the original finish.

Just reading this thread now...
Has anyone seen this pad? It looks correct enough in that it's not the smooth rubber type.
I need one for my '67 ragtop and this one looks the closest in texture, composition and also looks the same as in my other '67 survivor.

 I'll go with the steel lines then. I know item such as ball joints, brake hoses, repo tires, etc... we have no choice if the design has changed through the years, but for brake lines we still have a choice.
The ones I made in the 80's still look great other than the armor is slightly oxidized in some areas but that was due to my eventual stopping of an annual application with a preservative oil.
Hmmm....maybe steel with SS armor is the trick.

 Like Joe said, straight. Viewing from the rear it should have an ever so slight lean inwards (4 degrees per the manual).
This is where the correct base is a must to get ththe right pitch.

Good luck in your quest,

 Like Bob's, my 67 TH400 has no markings and is plain steel. It definitely doesn't look close to the one on eBay.
I've seen a few 1st gen Camaro's with the TH400 and never recall seeing a bold or any stamping as that one.

 That does it!
The next car I get is going to be a Revell model car  Cheesy

Let's see someone fake that!

 Thanks Kurt…Interesting reading!
So, one certainty with mass production is uncertainty.  Roll Eyes
Would it be safe to assume then that in this case of when the brass fitting was discontinued in place of the grommet, that there would not be an overlap of use or would an overlap be possible to empty inventory? Bobs 5E car has the brass and my earlier 5B has the grommet. It’s sounding more like my car had the dealer mod done at some unknown point in time.

Hi Bob,

  I have seen SS lines on restored to factory appearance cars and they stand out easily. I couldn't figure that out......restore to correct gloss, texture, dates, parts, over spray, etc..etc..etc.....and yet use SS lines when the correct was plated steel. Go figure!   Grin

867  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Ground wire on 67 PS Rag Joint on: May 07, 2012, 06:34:11 PM
Hi Bob,

 That plating looks to be either cad or zinc. I'd go with cad though because it held up nicely. Just a guess.
There is no copper anything besides the metal strap. The bolts and nuts are steel (looks black oxide).
 Many replacements now use a copper bolt. I haven't seen one in person so I suspect those are copper plated bolts. IMO, an all copper bolt and nut would be too soft
compared to steel under shear loads so I doubt it would be used in such a critical area.

Mike,
Interesting point but why didn't my NOR 05E ( I bought in 5-15-70 from King Car rental) have it done at the dealer. As a dealer modification I am not sure if the mod. ( no recall) was done on all new product or only if the customer complained of an oil leak.
When car rental agencies buy new cars do they physically go through a dealership?
Bob

Not sure what the rental cars went through back then. In 1967 I was in 6th grade! I'm thinking now that the previous owner had a leak so the mod was performed. That's the only thing that sounds logical at this point. I'd sure like to see more input to this from owners of 67's with the gauge option.

Bob,
 
  In regards to Brian K's comment earlier ".......My 11E build 67 RSSS has this set up owned since 1988, ....."   which setup is he referring to...brass of grommet?
Which plant was your Camaro made? I wonder now if mine had the retro done afterwards by the dealer.  Huh

I feel like the German peeking from behind the branches (Arte Johnson) from Rowan & Martins ...."veddy interesting"  Cheesy

Hi Bob,

   Now that is interesting in that it looks like the brass fitting was still used despite the design change around March 67 and the drawing date in April showing the grommet and your May car has the smaller hole indicating brass.
   I guess at this stage it would be good to see others chime in if their oil gauge uses a grommet or the firewall brass junction.
Lets start a separate thread to solicit input!?  Huh
