1967 L30/M35 combo - should I have two carb return springs?
« on: October 09, 2016, 03:17:20 AM »
Howdy all,

Trying to reassemble my car that I didn't disassemble.  It's a 67 L30/M35.

In the AIM, UPC 6/D2 shows the one spring running from the coil to the 2 barrel carb for the 327/210.

UPC M35/A14.5 shows the "production spring" running from the coil bracket to the carb, and another spring running from the kickdown rod to the spark plug retaining tower. That has a specific part number for the L30 version of the spring. I cannot find the production spring by doing a part number search on the Google machine.

So, should I have two springs, and if so, should I just use two of the 390425 part numbers since the "production spring" doesn't appear to be for sale anywhere?

Cheers,
Jon

Jon, first, welcome to the site. Second, I see that no one has replied, so I guess I'll go over this with you.

The 1967 Camaro L30 "Production" spring was part number 3904245. At least that's the only number I can find in the parts manuals. This covered ALL 1967 models with a 4BBL carb and the M35 Powerglide transmission.

The AIM calls out that same part number (3904245) for the L30 or L48 "kick down" rod, so it appears you'll need TWO of those springs. This is a lime green spring and was also used on other models as well, including the 1967 Corvette. The best price I could find was from DOC REBUILD.

I highly recommend Doc, but be prepared, he's not the friendliest person in the world! However, if you use his on-line store, you shouldn't have any problems.

Ed,

I appreciate you taking the time.  Looks like I'll be picking up another of those springs.

Baby steps.   ;D

Cheers,
Jon
