Thanks Jim and Mike! Much appreciated!


Originality / TH400 Transmission Harness Clip
« on: January 10, 2020, 08:02:50 PM »
I need to know the correct finish of the transmission kick down harness clip that attaches the harness to block. It is shown as item 5 in UPC M40 A8. Wikiparts lists it with a latex finish (which I'm assuming to be rubber) yet all of the repro companies list it as natural steel.

If anyone has an original clip installed on their car and could have a quick look at it for me I'd appreciate it!

BTW...this is for a '68 L35/M40 car.



Originality / Re: Correct 1968 Camaro Smog Pump Bracket Bolts
« on: January 04, 2020, 10:04:52 PM »

I bought a complete smog system for my '68 L35 car a few years ago from Bill Hodel. In my opinion, he is the "go-to" guy in the country for smog systems and parts. He supplied me with coded pump, pulley's, hoses, dated coded clamps, nuts and bolts....i.e. everything. His info is below:

Here are a few pictures of the bolts you're after and what it looks like on my engine.


PS: Not sure why the pics are sideways!

Intake-longer (if my memory serves me), & non shouldered. Rear-non shouldered

Thanks Bentley!

Hmmm....I havenít found any repro suppliers that sell an intake manifold bolt kit that includes longer shoulder or non-shoulder bolts. Theyíre all the same size. Thatís not to say that theyíre correct! :) No mention in the Chassis Service Manual about different length bolts either. I did find a thread where JohnZ states that the lift bracket was installed at the engine assembly plant:

So is it possible they were all they same length????BTW...The same question would also apply to the smog bracket that is attached to the right side cylinder head.  Would the engine assembly plant install 3 different length bolts (2 for the lift bracket and 1 for the smog bracket)? Guess itís possible but I havenít found any proof of that yet.

Does anyone have an L35 (or L34) engine with the lift brackets installed that may have gone down this path?

Thanks Bob

Searched and searched but couldnít find the answers to my questions...

Iím going to install the lift brackets on my Ď68 BB L35 engine and have a few questions:

1. Are the bolts longer on the intake manifold to compensate for the added thickness of the lift bracket? If so, what is the length? Also, are they shouldered/non-shouldered and does anyone sell them (AMK?).

2. What type of bolt is used to attach the rear lift bracket to the cylinder head? Size?, shouldered/non-shouldered?, bolt+lockwasher or just a bolt?

It is sorta.  It says the default is black textured on the center dash trim but I wanna make sure a deluxe interior car didnít have a smooth finish on the tray.  Can anyone confirm?

ďBlack textured trim was the default for the center dash panel on 1968 Camaros. But ordering either a console, special interior trim, or custom interior added walnut woodgrain to the center dash panel. (The grain of the applique is vertical - Firebird used the horizontal woodgrain.) But the ashtrays on earlier woodgrain cars were black, in contrast to the rest of the center panel. In the Feb/March 68 timeframe at both plants, the ashtray changed to a woodgrain ashtray that matched the center panel.Ē

FWIW.....My 01D Ď68 has the black ashtray.

Is it deluxe interior?  Is the tray textured or smooth?

Standard interior, smooth black, Norwood car

It should mirror the tail light harness on the drivers side.

Agreed. It runs along the passenger side, underneath the sill plate and then runs up and over wheel well.

Yes, I noticed that as well. Iíve yet to find anyone that sells the stud that has that detail. But Youíre right, itíll never be seen anyway.

AMK offers several air cleaner studs. They do have a 1/4-20 x 3Ē stud (B-10030). They also offer a 1/4-20 x 3.5Ē stud which they list as equivalent to p/n 3921975 (agrees to what is called out in the AIM). AMK products are typically very accurate and I would go out on a limb and say the HBC one is wrong.

Downside is they have a $30 minimum order policy.

Here are a couple of pics of the adjusting screw from my 01D '68. I replaced the Nylon nut and replated the original screw.

Hope this helps.
