I recently bought a heat pipe (connects the manifold stove to the air cleaner on small blocks with automatics) that the seller claimed was from a 4bbl '68 El Camino and would also work on the '68 Camaro.

Can any of you confirm this for me from the images posted below? If it is correct for the '68 Camaro 4bbl, I will store it away until I source the air cleaner (this is a low-priority project); if not, please let me know what application it does fit so I can resell it.

Thanks in advance.

Depends on if your Camaro car was a 2BBL or a 4BBL V8.

But, if it was a 327/275 or 350/295 car (Rochester 4BBL), then yes, the Nova, Chevelle and Camaro shared the same tube.

Group 3.417 - TUBE, Air Cleaner Intake

68 Nova, Chevelle, Camaro with A.T. and 4BBL (327, 350) P/N 3916309

2BBL applications were a different P/N

Hope this helps...

Thanks Ed.

I have a 2BBL but want to convert it to a 4BBL. Someone on this forum told me the stoves are the same for 2bbl and 4bbl (the tubes are different); can you confirm this for me?

Yes. All 1968 models with V8's and A.T. used the same stove, P/N 3916302.

Thank you for all the helpful information!

BTW, is there a better parts manual other than the factory assembly manual?

Kinda.

The AIM is great for original Chevrolet part numbers, but of course, no help at all for the Fisher stuff. Fisher used another manual that's never been released for reproduction, but it sure would be nice to have!!

The Parts and Accessories Manual (P&A) is great, but it too has limitations. If a part is discontinued or superceeded, another part may be substituted, but not "correct" for your car. It works, but doens't necessarily look the same.

There's no one book that will give you everthing. You have to have several and do some comparison.

I'm not familiar with the AIM or P&A. Are these available through places like Classic Industries, etc (that's where I purchased my Factory Assembly Manual several years ago)?

Yes, the A.I.M. is the Assembly Instruction Manual and available through all the repop houses. The P&A isn't available in reporduction form so you have to find an original from places like ebay or one of the automotive publications dealers like Walter Miller or the like.
