I seem to be talking to myself here... :-[

I found a recall kit on eBay   Item number: 200178853605  I know they are hard to find but $300.00?  So fare no one has taken it.  Myself included.

I know the recall was in place in 1972, for the 1969 Z-28's. It would be hard to believe that the mounts would be rotted away by that time. I would think it would be a problem with too many hard leaves breaking the mount. GM was known to change the mounts to interlocking style, if tubing headers had been installed, and the kit would not fit around the exhuast.

My '69 RS L65 received the pictured (JohnZ) recall cable motor mount strap in '72. It was not just for the Z28s. Installed in a very short time as I recall. I also agree the mount would not be rotted away after such a short time. Lots of "hard leaves" around at that time with so many Camaros, Mustangs, and assorted other muscle on the street!
I've owned three Camaros, '67 RS 327 convertible, '69 RS 350 coupe and a '73 Type LT 350 coupe with split bumper.

I don't know if this makes sense but I broke the bolts that held it to the manifold.  I ended up going with solid steel mounts.  A little vibration at idle but it held that puppy down. I had to do something drastic cause I almost went under a semi-truck with a stuck throttle and it almost caused my heart to stop.  LOL

This is what I have.  I'm not sure what it fits but it's not the bracket John has.  Anyone have an idea?  I have 2 of them.  They were in a box of junk I got with my last Camaro.

 I have in a GM box, exactly the same version of a stop lift kit as you have shown shown stamped #6270739 also.
 The original paperwork enclosed with the parts state it is for 1969 Chevrolet 327-250 with Power Steering but doesn't specify Camaro or Nova (although the box does - but that aslo carries the #330265 part number - so I'm assuming it is misboxed).
 A friend picked it up at Carlisle years ago for me, assuming it would fit and be neat for my '68 Zed but I run headers and it wouldn't fit obviously anyway even if it was the #330265 version.
 Appears from the diagrams that 6270739 attaches to the front exhaust manifold bolt (either left or right side?? of the block) and tucks closely behind the power steering pump if installed on the driver's side... as the enclosed instuctions state "straighten the French lock and remove mainfold bolt. The power steering adjusting bolt may be too long and interfere with the cable bracket - if so replace adjusting bolt"...
 Might be able to scan a copy of the paperwork and picture disgram(s) if you feel it is any good to you, just let me know you're email addy if interested... So that is what you have!  - Randy

I do beleive that the cable was no longer needed with the newer interlocking motor mounts. Problem with older mounts was when broken the block could move quite a ways leading to the stuck throttle issue. Don't know what the cutoff date would be, but the cable should not be needed if you upgrade the mounts.
