any thoughts of what the bracket was plated or painted? mine had remnants of black paint like a dipped part. after looking at Garys and I found this pic of a 21,000 mile car thats on the board

I think he is right it seems that only the later cars got this bracket.
Consider yourself lucky, since who ever bought the one on your car, only wasted a little money on it, could have been worse.

I've always thought it was the later built cars that got this bracket too, even though adds say correct for "all" Z/28 302's.    I don't see any remnants of one ever being on my Z/28, 12/68 build.

Im not sure if they figured out what month these got phased in. Maybe around May of 69?

the earliest I've seen anyone report on in our CRG discussions is around May or June '69...  even though the drawing shows it for late '68...   JohnZ responded to that (seeming) discrepancy in one of his posts on those threads, stating that the change didn't go into production at the drawing approvals, but at another point (and I can't recall the exact words he used so I won't try).. :)

Anybody commenting on the 26 buck repop? My car does not have one but I like the looks. Would it have came on the L78 as well?

It's not clear to me that the bracket does very much??  maybe it supports the rear of the fuel line/distribution block, but it doesn't seem to be much weight on the fitting above regardless.... maybe they were getting complaints of that rear fitting 'leaking' fuel??

Thanks, I figured it was sometime later in production.

My guess Gary is that it's there to help with vibrations, that could possibly fatigue and crack the fuel line over time.....maybe.   Don't know if there are a ton of reports of that happening but that might explain why it was phased in at a later date?   Other than that, I see no need for it.   Glad mine never got one, I'm not paying $300 for a piece like that.  If I had to, I'd go straight for the $25 repop because I see nothing wrong with it, other than a different stamp.  Don't think anyone looking at the car would care much about that.

Been watching for one of these on eBay for about a year.  They don't appear very often.
Even so, I bid to 50 and might go a bit higher, but not into 3 figures.  The repop is very good for an item like this and I already have one of those.  Maybe once my restore is farther along and I have a better handle on costs I can look harder at these kind of things, but I've got a long way to go.
