Looking into tracking down some original tower-style hose clamps. There seems to be many sizes available (no doubt manufactured for numerous other makes/models), but as these aren't cheap, don't want to get the wrong ones. Is the clamp size specified to suit the hose that they secure, or the maximum opening size of the clamp?
Anyone know the size for heater hoses (I believe there are 2 sizes) and upper and lower radiator hoses for a 1969 small block? (Not putting smog back on).
As far as I can tell, Wittek clamps were dated by quarter, so there would only be 4 date codes per calendar year.
Thanks for any help!

 I was on Facebook 1 st. Gen. Camaro page this afternoon, and they started talking about Mod tops on early Camaros.  I had never heard of this.

Mike, Interesting timing as I just got back from the Muscle Car and Corvette National show today in Rosemont near Chicago where I met RogerH from Team Camaro.  He has a beautiful restored mod top Camaro in the show that he bought new in '67. He said he scoured the internet to eventually find a dealer who happened to have some of the material with the exact pattern to restore his top.  He's also from Illinois (Quincy) so maybe you'll be able to see it sometime.

OK, checked the car this morning, and the 2 bolts that attach each of the inner VE3 brackets to the bumper itself have 'RBW' head markings (as do the bolts for the outer brackets). The bolts that attach the bracket to the frame horn/extension have 'L5' on the head. Anyone seen this head marking in this application before?
(FWIW, the car had a starburst drag racing paint scheme applied over the original silver in 1971, you can see the paint overspray on the bumper and brackets, but it is evident on inspection that the front end was painted without being disassembled, so I have no reason to doubt these bolts were on the car, at least in '71, if not when it left the factory. When I eventually remove the bumper (and brackets) for repair, I'll take photos showing the length of these bolts.

'RBW' (bumper to bracket):


'L5' (bracket to frame horn extension) sorry about photo, not very clear but hard to access:

This was taken when I first pulled my subframe out. It's the best one I could find while they were still attached to the car.

  I was on Facebook 1 st. Gen. Camaro page this afternoon, and they started talking about Mod tops on early Camaros.  I had never heard of this.  During the conversation one pic. was posted of a Gold '67 Camaro with White stripes that look correct.  Further into the conversation I was directed to site where the pic. originally came from, where it stated that the car was believed to be the 25 th. Z28 built delivered to Funston Chevrolet.  Not saying it was a "factory installed" vinyl top, but it seems there were quite a few "Dealer installed" Mod tops.

 (I think this car may be the 25th Z-28 built, which was in fact shipped to Jim Funston Chevrolet. Notice the snow on the ground? This suggests a January-February timeframe. On the side it looks like it may say "Kar Topper". Lots of interesting stuff like body color rally wheels, gold line tires instead of the usual redlines, & white stripes when they should be black. I see shoulder belts too. Pretty cool but wonder what happened to it.)

I noticed that my coil wire terminal is bad on my 69 Z28. Where can I find an original wire terminal. It's in the shape of the letter F and has two wires connected to it.
