This is on my 03D. I dont remember changing it

Bill, definitely the more popular clip. I assume it was painted at some point as I've not come across examples where they were painted with on diff.

My 69 is like Hawks but both of our cars are real late 69s. I'm thinking it's an early/late. The clip was gone from my friend's 1B car. Maybe more will talk about what's on their cars. Been a long time since I had a 10 bolt car. I wonder if they're the same?....Joe

I painted mine. The rest of mine were either blue and  i think a small one on subframe was green. What finish should this be

Bill, my research continues however it seems the original finish for the style of clip on your car was either natural steel or clear (silver) zinc.

Lloyd -

Is this the clip you're referring to?  Note the stampings. 








I don't have an axle picture stored in Photobucket yet - I'll load some up tonight with it installed and confirm its the right clip.

Great photos Hans, the stamping detail is interesting. This style is the most typical and possibly a standard. Many thanks for posting.

Here's some more Lloyd -

As found during clean-up and disassembly:



Close-up of bracket before cleaning.  My assumption was it was either natural or clear zinc but it might have been painted or had overspray on it.   I went with natural for the restoration.



You can sorta see the stampings on this pic

Anyone else have a photo of an original diff clip to post? Would like to see a few more examples to fill out the thread now and for future reference.

I checked the '69 AIM for the rear axle, page 65.  It appears there was a production change to the clip - see note "17".    Unfortunately, the copy quality of the AIM is poor and I can't make out the date when the change happened.   I also checked the '68 AIM, but I couldn't quite make out the clip used but something definitely changed between '68 and '69 as the engineering drawings changed.

So it's very likely the clip on your rear axle is the original production clip which appears to be the same as the other translucent blue brake line clips.

Here's the AIM section for reference - I can't make out the production date change in the notes block though

Thanks for posting John, your clip appears to be another variant. Green rather than clear zinc or blue (per mine) and and open center. Hmmm.
