Research Topics & Reports / Re: 67-69 Bumper Jack Design
« on: October 14, 2021, 04:15:39 PM »
I see this topic is old but trying to find a correct jack for the
1967 LOS 02B Sport Coupe

I read through the whole thread and was convinced that all of the LOS cars had square shaft jacks, but then the final list from @KurtS included a LOS 10B car with a trapezoid shaft. Was that a misprint or is this issue not settled?

During the 20 years my 67 was a daily driver I carried a compact scissor jack, used it many times.

Was always afraid of bumper jacks, although used them many times back in the day.

My 02B 67 with manual drum brakes has the bent bale.

I believe it's original to the car but couldn't swear to it since I've only had the car since 1975.

Just for more data, here is a pic of the padding sleeve from my 67 LOS car before tank was removed for the first time. There was a bit of dried tape left covering the middle of the sleeve.

Thanks 67cruisemaster, I'm glad it isn't something specific to the car because the marks didn't survive cleaning the tank.

Restoration / New Fuel Sender Unit, hose cushion detail.

I have to replace the fuel sender unit in the gas tank since it wouldn't pickup gas and the fuel gauge wasn't working.

The replacement I got from Classic looks very close. The only detail I'm wondering about is the piece of soft hose that cushioned the hard fuel line where it passed under the tank strap.

See the pictures, the soft hose is the texture of water pipe insulation and is in amazingly good shape after 53 years. There were slight remnants of tape that apparently held it in place.

At first I thought I'd replace it with a section of fuel hose, but after cleanup, it looks like I can just reuse this piece with the new unit.

What do you say

Originality / Original 67 Gas Tank with blue stencil markings.

Anyone else seen these marks on their original tanks?

Car is a 02B LOS build and tank has 5 D 7 (fifth week of 67) date code stamp.

Couldn't edit my previous post, gave up trying to upload photos here so put them in my photo gallery here.

My LOS 67 has the tank stamp.

5 D 7 (the D is reversed)

And a fairly complete  blue stamp or stencil that reads:

 12 19
MADE IN (I'm assuming USA got lost over the side.)

I have pictures but can't make them small enough on the phone.

For your own reference when placing your new decals.
Gotcha, thanks for the reminder. Just the kind if thing I'd forget and then be back here asking someone to measure theirs.

Might as well post the front AC label pic for posterity.

Take a pic, and measure,reference points your old sticker.
Not sure what you wanted? Here is a pic of my original (what's left of it) and the licensed replacement I got from Heartbeat City Camaro.
Here are more pics including the front AC label.

I measured best I could from point to point on the label lettering and everything matched up, have no way to know about the colors of silver and red from 50 years ago.

Originality / Re: CRG Report on Fan Blades question
« on: April 10, 2020, 07:09:22 PM »
Neither of my '67 fixed blade fans have numbers. I believe one has the letter 'S' stamped in the hub. Maybe the mfg?

I don't see any stamps at all on mine. Do you have one that no doubt came from an original 1967 V8?
Does your look like one of mine?

I noticed that one of mine felt heavier than the other, so after weighing and measuring found that

The darker one in the pictures is 8 ounces heavier and has 1/2 inch longer blades tip-to-tip.

Lighter one: 1 lb. 15.2 oz, 17 1/8 inch long blades.
Darker one: 2 lb. 7.2 oz, 17 5/8 inch long blades.

Could someone weigh and measure a fan that is for sure an original part?

I'd just clean it up. Engine looks mostly original, a restored air cleaner will look out of place, IMO. And the new decals are not the same....

I would powdercoat the fan though!
Anyone can fluff an engine compartment. And most bays have been repainted to some degree or another. It takes a lot of will power to resist the temptation to take an untouched engine compartment and just clean and leave it alone. Itís your car and you should make it to what suits you. But most hardcore enthusiasts will be more impressed with an original engine bay with original decals (no matter how frayed) & original paint even though things are not perfect...they are genuine and preserved.

I agree on keeping things original but this seems more like basic maintenance. I've been through a lot with this car since 1975, it's always been a driver and I'm trying to get it back to daily driver condition now. Not trying to fluff, restomod, or improve it beyond factory condition. Otherwise I'd slap on a chrome open-element air cleaner and be done.

The terrible cheap paint job I had done in 1988 got over-spray on EVERYTHING including the air cleaner, that's what looks like dust/dirt in the pictures.

I've got pictures of it over the years if your interested, including the receipts for the two paint jobs, 1977 and 1988, good for a laugh (or cry).

Most fans don't have part numbers stamped in them....
Thanks, good to know.  Makes it a lot harder to tell if a particular fan is really the correct one for a particular car.

Of course any of the four blade fans will be closer to original than the fiberglass flex fan that's been on my car for at least 45 years!
