Check out this site: http://quadrajetparts.com. I purchased my BB choke rod from them and it fit like a glove.

Bob,

Thanks for the reply. Much appreciated!

I was over a friends house last night who happened to have a TH400 lying around. We checked it for the clip and lo and behold there was one on it! Now, I'm not 100% certain it's correct but I've searched the web high and low and have come up completely empty on what this darn clip is suppose to look like.  He was kind enough to give me both the clip and screw, which BTW is another tough one to find! It happens to be the same screw that secures the fuel tank sending unit ground wire to frame rail but it's a real odd size that neither AMK or no else for that matter, offers.

So until I can confirm what the clip actually looks like I'm going to run with what I now have. It'll be a while before the engine and tranny are in the car so my hunt continues.  Smiley

BTW...My car does not have AC.

Once again, thanks for the reply.

Here is the CRG report: http://camaros.org/coolingsystems.shtml#fan

It does seem odd that a BB would have the 4 blade fan but if you didn't spring for the K02 option that's what came as standard.

It actually cools quite good. Always runs between 180-200 degrees.

Darrell,

Yes. The clutch fan (RPO K02) was included on cars with AC, 396/375 engines or Z28.

Bill is a great guy and does top notch work. I bought my complete smog set-up from him a few months ago. Highly recommend!

Chick,

I probably won't make it down to Frederick until Saturday due to some other commitments on Friday. If time permits, I'll be swinging by Carlisle on the way back home in my hunt for the last of the ever elusive parts I need for my build.

One of these we'll get to meet face to face!  Smiley

Does anyone know who might sell the clip that secures the kickdown harness to the transmission on a TH400? I'm not having much luck in locating one. The GM part number is 1368774. Item 2 in the attached picture. Item 3, screw, (p/n 3837950) is also pretty tough to find. This is for a '68 L35.

A picture from a members car might also help.

Thanks,

Bob

Lloyd,

Yes. It was the all white version and looks exactly like the one that Chick posted earlier. Perhaps their on-line catalog isn't up to date. I too, searched high and low for a long time to find the correct all white version and after stumbling across Bair's at Carlisle (and reading Chick's post) it was a no brainer to buy one. My rear still has the faded yellow vent tube but for a dollar I just couldn't pass it up.  Grin

You may want to give them a call. Ask for Brian...he's a real nice guy and I'm sure would be happy to help. Bair's riveted my upper ball joints about a year ago and do top notch quality work.

Let me know how you make out.

Lloyd,

Bair's Corvettes (http://www.bairs.com) sells them. I got mine at Carlisle from them a few weeks ago.....a bank busting $1.00! 😄

Here are a few pics of the Van and Ranchero.

Just got back from the Shelby auction. It went for $285,000 to a guy who lives in Philipsburg, PA (about 20 miles away). The car is absolutely stunning when seen in person. The Ranchero sold for $41,000 and the Van with 551 miles on it sold for $14,000. Huge crowd (probably 1000+ people). Nice that it's staying locally but thought for sure it would have gone into the Hendrick or Leno collection (both of which were rumored to have been in town to look at the Shelby).

Here are a few pics.

Thanks for your reply Martin. Seems odd that they have the slots with no key way in the shaft. Maybe they were also used in other alternators that had provisions for a woodruff key?

Bob
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / '68 L35 1100794 Alternator on: April 12, 2014, 09:24:11 AM
I've disassembled the fan and pulley from my 1100794 alternator to send them out to get plated and have a couple of questions which hopefully someone can help me with:

1.) Both the fan and pulley have a slot in them which one would assume would be used with a woodruff key yet the shaft on the alternator does not has a slot for a key. I'm fairly certain that both are original to the alternator and car since the pulley does have the "7" stamped on it and the build date of the alternator (A25) is in line with the build date of my car (01D). Why would they have a slot in them if the alternator shaft does not have a key way?
2.) Are the pulley and the fan attached with a nut and lockwasher or a nut and a flat washer?

Thanks,

Bob

The outside of the stacks are painted matte silver right up to the top of the stacks. The insides are chrome plated. The base around the stacks are also chrome plated. It's difficult to capture in a photo but there is just a very small amount of overspray where the matte silver meets the chrome plating at the base of the stacks.

Hope this answers your questions.
