See AIM Page 223, under RPO C60 (AC), View B.  The clip, PN #3825416 is clearly show and there are no notes in the revision block that states that GM deleted the clip from production.   If some reason the clip was no longer needed, I would have suspected the AIM would have had a revision note stating clip had been deleted during the production year.   Granted, this is for an AC car...

I'm still searching the AIM, but so far, that's the only place I see it referenced.    Interesting, no where on Page 44 under heater hoses is the clip mentioned - not even in the revision notes stating it's been deleted.

For such small items, I'm not sure if it was worth the ink to have a revision, vs. A major component or options that was no longer available.
Larry does your car also have the rubber tie right by the heater hose bracket?
(The cars I have seen without the bracket seem to have an extra rubber tie in that location)

Yes it has a rubber tie there as well.  It's holding the negative battery cable that runs over to the thermostat housing.

My car being an RS is plum full of those rubber ties. They went nuts with them holding all those vacuum hoses up.

I have to correct and add to what I said after reading Bullitt's question again.  I had to go out and look at the car.  It does have a rubber tie but it's not right by the heater hose bracket as Bullitt asked the question.  Mine is further down the heater hose and not only holding the battery cable, but the alternator wire harness is also held in with it.

I have a 08C,(late 69) and I don't think there is any evidence of a bolt/screw ever being in that hole.

10E of 69.  Original clamp, alternator bracket etc.  Photos from '96 after the engine swap.  It was there when it had the 307.  My belief is that items like this were either forgotten to be installed at the factory or just overlooked.  Why stop installing on just one type of engine or combo.?.  Wouldn't make sense.  Also I would think if an item was deleted from production then it would call for an ECN which in turn would require drawing updates.

Looks like it might also have the rubber tie holding the wires.

The AIM shows the metal clip on the alternator for cars with AC but not on cars without AC. Thanks for the pictures.

The metal clip was most certainly factory equipped with cars that didn't have AC.

There are quite a few original 69 Z photos floating around from road tests back in the day that clearly show the heater hose clamp, metal clip or how ever it's referred to.

Here's a vintage photo from the hot rod test car, clearly shows the heater hose bracket.  See if this works.....
