Thanks Mike

Mine are solid whereas the ebay ones have a slot in the center of the band.

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.

Interesting that it has the fuel line bolted on your car Martin.  My fathers L78 has the clip like Mike S pictured.


Fuel line was moved due to header install in the '68.

GM was 'practicing' ..  to make sure they got it right by 1969....  Smiley

Must have been the psychedelic enhancers they were ingesting for them to think that. 


My 67 L-48 is 3/8.

Good to know.  Thank you.
112  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67-9 Fuel lines on: November 21, 2014, 09:53:36 AM
All 68 V8 cars were 3/8"

Return lines did not start until 69.


Also the small block picture I show above is a 67.  This is the reason for the clip and not clamp & bolt on the rear of the line like the 68.
113  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67-9 Fuel lines on: November 21, 2014, 08:22:37 AM
See what happens when I talk about non-69's. Smiley


You mean they actually made Camaros before 69!!???!!   Roll Eyes   Grin




Ill get a few more pics tonight.  Can also get 68 Firebird pic as well just to see if something is different.  Here is the 68 LOS Z

Kurt, I sent you an email.

Big block



Small block


115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Radio antenna ground plate on: November 20, 2014, 03:31:41 PM
It also helps keep the antenna assembly from rotating and moving by using the groove and notch to hold the assembly to the plate and the ribs on the plate to help bite the fender.
116  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 67-9 Fuel lines on: November 20, 2014, 10:43:37 AM
The rear hose from the tank to the main line would be the same 5/16".  In 67 the only engines that got 3/8" were L35 & 78 & Z.  I am not 100% sure on the L48.

Nice ride and welcome!
118  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 67-9 Fuel lines on: November 20, 2014, 07:32:05 AM
All V8's were 3/8 in 67-68. I thought this was on the site, but I don't see it. If I can get comparable pics of the SB vs BB line routing from original cars, I'll add it.

Kurt, to my knowledge that is only true for 68.  67 did have small blocks with 5/16".  Ill get you pictures before the weekend unless someone else can get them sooner.
119  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 300 bare big blocks for only 499,999.00! on: November 19, 2014, 12:33:15 PM
At that price you would take a loss..  You would have to average at least $1700 a block to break even..  That doesnt include man hours to inventory & advertise..  Not an investment I would consider if I had the money..

Not that it matters but I have seen a few like the #3 (less than 5).  #1 never.  Most of the time its been #2.
