76  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.

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.

Now for a neat trick look at page 283 in 68 assembly manual look at number 3 on page. Big block fuel line were held in place by clip which line snapped in held on by a rivet. Small block cars were held on by clamp which was held buy a bolt.


That is what I was getting at when I asked for a pic of the fuel line on the subframe.   Grin 



What is the fuel line size for the 68 big block cars?

67L78


3/8"

Disclaimer:  I am not saying that what I say is gospel but just my opinion.


The stripes are too wide on the turn all the way to the doors.  Plus the emblems are not in the correct position on the fenders.  Stripes are painted on the upper valance and on the front of the wheel openings.  Decal on the backside and on doors. 



Example of the emblems in relation to stripe on known original paint car vs your pic.





Also the return fuel line didnt start until 69.

I have my doubts its a true big block.  Its definitely been repainted or at least the stripe has been.  Also fenders have been replaced.  Camaro script and SS emblems are in different locations on each side.  Get a pic of the fuel line coming up on the subframe and to the fuel pump.  Also get a pic of the underside of the trunk where the spoiler bolts to the lid on the pass side.  From the pic I dont see an emblem which means the spoiler was added afterward.  Also could be iffy but car was built around the same time that power assist brakes were mandatory for big blocks.  Does it have the valve on the driver side of subframe in the brake line?  Also get detailed pics of the black tailpan paint lines in the trunk area and behind the bumper.  Also wheels look to be 15x8's which were not original.

The X44 car doesnt have emblem holes in the fenders..  Also is it a blue interior and Cortez Silver??  Might be worth it to look into it.  Also do I only see one fuel line on the Z10 car?

If you can push the pushrod down when the lifter is on the base circle of the cam (collapsing the lifter) and it feels springy then its a hyd.  If not then its a solid.  Base circle of the cam is when both the intake & exhaust valves are closed.

Or if someone could measure the height and width of their letters on the car would be great also.
