1969 Z/28 spare tire hook size?
« on: May 02, 2017, 08:33:31 PM »
So I am doing some "research" for a 69Z, and it is missing the spare tire hook. I checked my neighbors stock 68 Camaro, and his is 8.5. I asked Gary on here and he had a couple, one of which is 9.5. So my question is what is the correct size for a 69Z, and was it exclusive to the Z, for any reason. Anyone with a 69 and a original spare tire hook size please chime in with the length.

(BTW this is for an early Los Angeles 69Z , if it makes any difference)

thanks

thanks for the link. There is no way it is 6", for the YH/AD spare
I have a 7.5 on hand, and it is to short.
I think either the 9.5 or 9.75 has got to be the correct one.

Come on 69 Z owners, take 120 seconds out of your day and unfasten your wing nut and measure that Hook. thanks

Bright zinc. I don't think they are assembly line correct.

The 1969 AIM shows the J-Hook used in 1969 Coupes with PW7/PW8 (F70-14) tires was P/N 3929975. Although the Z28 doesn't show a different J-hook being used, I would imagine it would have been the same 3929975 as the F70-14 wheel/tire combination.

The P&A's are all very confusing regarding the J-Hook part numbers. One book will say WITH such and such, and another one will say WITHOUT!! And this is for the same part! This is one of those items that can only be determined by someone with an original car.

Come on guys. There must be SOMEONE with an original 1969 Z28 that can answer this question.

Sad part for me is I have one, but my red car is in the midwest, so to far away to measure currently. Initially I thought this was an easy question...
its funny how some basic (mass produced) parts like this get over looked when you already have them, but when you need to know about them, they are a little harder to run across.
