Does anyone know who sells the correct screw for the bracket?

That maybe be a tough one. The 69 AIM has part number 187875, item #13, UPC Z28 A3, page 471. Looking on the AMK Fasteners website the part number doesn't show that it's available. Maybe someone here can post a pic or two with specs that has one and you can pick something up local.

You probably know this already, but....

do you have a 69 Z/28 made during or after July/August 1969?

according to JohnZ, “The added fuel line clip/bracket didn’t start until around July/August 1969.”

Thanks David.  My car is an August car and the bracket is original.  It has been missing the screw since I bought it in 1978.

I went down and took a few photos to help you identify the original bracket and screw.   My bracket and screw were brown with 'patina'.. :)  until I recently cleaned them in Evaporust..   so it should be a bit easier to see now.

Photo for the installed bracket (labeled Stamp Rite), with screw head showing.
Photo for the screw head (no markings observed, 1/4")
Photo for the screw length (1/2" screw thread, coarse or self tapping thread?)..

I hope these help..

Nice close up G. Looks to be just a common screw that could have been used anywhere.

Try using your camera's "macro" feature.  :)

You can still make out what the threads look like though.

In the A.I.M it shows the screw for the carb fuel bracket is the same one used to mount the battery junction block to the rad support.

Looks like Heartbeat City sells the screw.  It's part #EGP-1118.

The seller had an auction in progress a week or so ago, for a 992-dated 4053 carb complete with the fuel line, y-block and the carb stud support & screw. Made no specific mention of the fuel line support in the description. I was watching it closely to see what it went for. Got bid to ~$150 and then was ended early, reason given "there was an error in the listing". I'll bet someone either tipped the seller off, or they did some research after a question was asked, and realised those parts were desirable on their own; seller now has the carb and fuel line listed separately, and support is described in detail, including the 'STAMP RITE'. Listing also says: "From what I have been told, this setup is extremely rare and tough to find."
As a frequent ebay seller myself, it's fair that the seller realised what they had (by whatever means that occurred) and hence won't part with it for a low-ball price. But as a lover of our hobby, I hope the final price is fair and it sells to someone who will put it on their car, and doesn't get bid to ridiculous levels by the big money-men, or flipped for a fat profit shortly afterwards.
