The possible #6 car is a 12B, auto. Has the right options and was from TN and has some history.
Haven't heard about the car for a long time...

You just beat me to the punch on the pulley spacer rszmjt ...lol.  Yes the top bracket in my first pic is the correct one.  Len (6667ss138) had pointed out to me about a spacer that's pressed into his bracket in the most central hole of his bracket (which mine is missing).  Is that for the smog pump attachment ?

Thanks

Yes The upper smog pump bolt goes through the spacer into the pump.

Hmm doesn't the Z28 smog pump have a spacer under the pulley also for alignment?
Never have seen pics of an original set-up showing correct parts for alignment.
Anyone have pics and dimension for pulley spacer as well? 

Nope, 1969 Z28 does not use a spacer, 458 pulley goes rite against the white plastic fan hub. The Upper bracket is Correct, the lower bracket is for 74 up. My car has original smog, I will post a picture tomorrow

You're very welcome, Steve.

I don't think your question is dumb at all. I think what is posted is just a portion of the homologation papers for the Firebird. Because there are not photos in every place there could be, I think these are either supplemental pages to a larger group or (as seems to be indicated) "Pre-1969" homologation papers that are "interim in nature" to a full release of specs and details.

I believe there's more out there and hope to come across it someday, in which case it will be posted here.

You're welcome, Victor. Glad to be of help. I hope you're able to make it out there to see them run.

Reference to my 03B build.  Here's all 4 of my YH dated Ralley Rims.  1 is dated 92 26 ('69 Feb 26) and 3 are dated 92 27 ('69 Feb 27).  No spare...bummer ! Oh well I guess 4 are better than none.

He also wants to know if anyone can help him acquire a pretty rare option that originally came with his car.  He states that he has, "been trying to locate the fiber optic wire for the front turn lights to the fenders, no one in the after market offers that item.  Do you know of any outfit that might have that item!!! please let me know."

There is nothing to the fiber optic 'system' except for the indicators and the fiber optic itself (a coated glass fiber light conveyer)..  If he only needs the fiber optic line itself (if his is missing or broken in half), then a corvette supplier would be the best source, as all Corvettes built in several years between '68-9 and 1971 Corvettes had them.  Many people think they are more complicated than they are.     A response to a similar question on the Corvette Forum addressed this issue very well, which I will repeat here:
"There is nothing mechanical or electrical about fiber optics. They are very simple. Just fiber strands that transmit light very easily, from the light source to the individual lenses in the console. The purpose of these items was to show the driver if there was an external light bulb that was not functioning.

 Here are a few of the common reasons why a fiber optic does not work. Check to see if the bulb is burnt out. If the lights were removed to have the car repainted, it is not uncommon for the fiber optic end to get painted over and not allow light to travel to the console. The fiber cable could be broken as a result of a previous accident. Check inside the console to see if the fiber optic cable is connected to the console lenses. When I first got my car, I found some of the cables just not connected to the console lense.

 Anyway, this is very basic technology and it is not like trying to run down an electrical problem. As was previously stated, if you have a problem it is pretty easy to just re-run new fiber cable and re-tape it into the harness. IMO. "

ie.. to have them work, the fiber optic line must 1) be present, 2) be clean on the ends, and 3) be installed in the fittings of the console and lamp source.
