Bringing up an old topic.  Was the positive batt cable clip from the starter up to batt was it installed before or after engine paint?

Looking at a 67 AIM UPC 12 Sheet A5.5 for V-8 engine it indicates "Clips part of engine" in the illustration.  Not sure if the same for all three years though.

Thanks.  Yes I am aware of that but I wanted to make sure if it was installed before or after paint.

That clip & if it has automatic, the cooler line clip was also on the pan rail before being painted...Joe

Just to be clear I would like to know for all 67-9 if this is the same.  I assume Joe yours is a 69 that you seen that on?  Just making sure there wasn't some weird anomaly during the 3 years.

I just had to figure this out for myself on my 69. I used information provided in the AIM book. You could see drawings on those items & there was verbage that went with them. Never any part number so on would come to the conclusion that these parts were on the engine when it was built at the engine plant. My engine code is CJG which was stamped at the engine plant. I think it would've also been written on the side of the block to tell the builders what components made up that build. CJG was 396(400) w/th400. Same with the battery cable clip. Does that make sense? I did find other like pieces from other engines I've taken apart. They didn't have paint on the backsides. Other years could be different....Joe

OMG..  I realize that...  I have seen that as I stated previously..  I just want factual data to make sure it was painted or installed after paint.  For 67 just to verify it is the same as 68/9.  I don't wanna assume anything.  I don't 100% trust the AIM on every single thing.

I thought I had a picture saved but naturally can't find it. It has been posted on the HAMB several times in a Chevrolet factory of BB engine ready to be installed. The complete exhaust manifolds are painted.
