Originality / 1968 camaro standard grille bracket
« on: August 19, 2020, 01:00:44 PM »
Does anyone have an image, or can take a picture, of what the original screw 9419380 looks like? This screw is in the AIM 12-A6 and is listed as the screw that attaches the grille bracket to the headlamp bezel. I haven't been able to find a reference to the size or an image of what it looks like. So hoping someone may have that info. or an original car that a picture can be taken of it. Thanks for any help. Cheers!


General Discussion / Cragar SS Direct Bolt Lug Nuts
« on: May 03, 2019, 10:39:42 PM »
I have a complete set of Cragar SS direct bolt 15" wheels (old school, dates are in the 70s) that I am going to mount on my 68 Camaro. What I am wondering is if someone has pics or knows what type of lug nuts I should use. On the Cragar site I couldn't find anything other than the acorn nuts recommended, but they have the sloped bevel and on my wheel they are flat where the lug nut would rest. I've searched the forum to no avail as well. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

General Discussion / Headlamp adjuster screw
« on: March 05, 2019, 11:55:58 PM »
I've searched through the forum and couldn't find many posts on this topic to get an answer. But I'm looking to find out what was the correct adjuster screw used for the 68 Camaro. I know the adjuster nuts were different between 67 and 68, but I've seen several variants of the adjuster screw from "original" buckets compared to the new kits. The part number for 67 was 5953005 and that was the entire assembly according to the AIM. For 68 and 69 the AIM specifies part number 3921445, but I see both the variation with just the phillips head and then the variation with the phillips head and nut head, and a larger flange. I've attached some pics to also show the differences I'm finding. So bottom line, I'd just like to know what the original adjuster screw looked like for 68, or if they changed throughout the year. My car is a 2nd week July, 1968 build date. Thanks

As stated in the ebay post, no vin# so not sure how to match up to the correct car. But I guess if you are seeking a date correct 350 for your SS this may do. Thanks

I'd sure love to spend a day just going over a survivor car like this, documenting and seeing what "just off the lot" looked like. Enjoy!

I'm looking for any quality images of a 350 CID from a 1968 Camaro (preferably manual). I've searched the forum and net, haven't found much. My set up has a power brake booster, power steering. If anyone had some can you post them here? Thanks for any help.

General Discussion / Kick Panel Speakers - spacer
« on: May 25, 2018, 05:45:22 PM »
I'm going to install some kick panel speakers this weekend, using an aftermarket replica stereo, in my 68. I've sourced some 4x6 speakers that will fit behind the original style speaker covers and the hardware I'll need. When looking at the 68 AIM it also shows spacers being used (I assume to help with vibration of the speaker and so as to not crush in the speaker cover with the screws) but I haven't been able to find them, or even a picture of them, to know what the material was, what they looked like, widths and depths, etc.
I've found part #'s in the 67 and 68 AIM of 3899809, 3899810 and 3899811 so I assume they are different widths on the spacers. But those part #'s don't show up on any searches I've done. Has anyone ran into this before, found a good solution or material to substitute, etc? I've searched multiple forums and google, nada. Any help or direction is much appreciated.
Everyone have a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend. Thanks

General Discussion / Fan spacer 3857041
« on: May 09, 2018, 07:07:53 PM »
I've searched through the forum and wasn't able to find any posts regarding this issue. I am trying to put back together correctly a 1968 350 for my car. I have gotten the spacer 3857041 and the correct 4 blade fan, along with the correct water pump and pulleys. My challenge is finding the right length OEM set of 4 bolts to hold this all together. I purchased a set on ebay and they seem to be about a 1/4" too long (they were our of a fan spacer 3927794). Both are pretty close to the same length according to the research report on CRG, but they won't work. They bottom out at the end of the threads on the water pump.
My question is, what length of bolt should I be looking for? I couldn't narrow it down by looking at the AIM for bolt 9425299 (couldn't find any size info) or is there a problem with my mount on the water pump that the end of the bolts aren't passing through to stick out a slight bit on the back side?

Thanks for any help. I posted the subject line as is so maybe easy to come up in a search later on for someone else. Shane

General Discussion / Delco Booster
« on: March 15, 2018, 01:30:01 PM »
Sorry if this has been covered, but read through many threads to find this answer. On the Delco boosters, was Delco Moraine stamped into all of them? Or were there some that were OEM boosters without the logo. I have a booster on my car, dated in April on one tab and 9079 on the other tab, but no logo on the booster front. So don't know if this is correct. Thanks for your input...

General Discussion / 68 L48 Harmonic Balancer
« on: February 20, 2018, 09:32:55 PM »
I've read through all the posts, and online info, I can find and haven't really found a confirmed answer. I'm looking to get an original harmonic balancer for my 68 Camaro. I'm having rebuilt and install a 1968 350 CI to put into it. I've looked to try and decipher and find a correct harmonic balancer. I've narrowed the part number down to 3896966 (I think), but as I search that part number I see many variations. Can someone point me in the right direction of what I should be looking for to differentiate a 67/68 balancer from a 69 (as far as I can tell by what I've read they are different even with the same part number). There are a bunch for sale on Ebay, but some say they cover from 67 to 74, some say 69 to 74, some say 67/68 and I don't know enough about them to know for sure which one I should seek out. Thanks for any input.

General Discussion / 3923239 SB Dipstick
« on: January 02, 2018, 03:12:53 PM »
Does anyone have a good source to find a repop of the correct gray tipped dipstick for a 68 Camaro 350 SB, #3923239? My car did not have the original engine when I bought it, but I have located a 68 350ci that has the correct MS code for my 4 speed car, just not numbers correct but I believe that to be long gone. Have been trying to source date code correct parts when I can for the engine rebuild to eventually happen, but this item seems to be pretty illusive. Been looking online for over a year with no luck on the selling sites, and as of now I haven't been able to find a reproduction version so wanted to know if anyone knew of a source, or am I just out of luck on this detail? Thank you for any help and Happy New Year to the Forum.

General Discussion / Pitting on intake
« on: December 04, 2017, 04:11:30 AM »
Can someone give me their input/expertise on this manifold. It's correct for my Camaro and I have the correct carb for it as well (I'm goin to put a date correct 350 in it), but as I'm not a very experienced mechanic, is the pitting on the manifold going be an issue where the carb and water neck mount? And if so, can it be fixed? Or will I need to find another intake? I know that there is a fix to plug the two extra holes, I'll do that, with either brass plugs or a 3 gasket set up I saw online. I'm just wondering if it's worth the effort given the pitting that is present. Thanks

General Discussion / Choke Edelbrock Performer RPM Q-jet
« on: November 27, 2017, 09:52:56 PM »
Question regarding chokes, and I thought I'd seen a string on this before but I can't relocate it. I have a stock Quadrajet carb for my car, 7028213, and I also have a NOS choke kit for that carburetor. I had purchased a Edelbrock Performer RPM Q-Jet intake for rebuilding a 350 to put in my car. When I mount the carb onto the intake, the NOS kit won't work/reach from the platform on the intake to the linkage on the carb for the choke. I then purchased the choke kit from Edelbrock (1931) and the choke rod won't work/reach.
Has anyone ran into this, options of another kit or rod to use? I'd like to stay with the NOS kit and keep it looking as original as possible, but not sure that's gonna work. Any help or input greatly appreciated. Thanks
