Battery Ground lead
« on: December 27, 2005, 07:11:56 AM »
Can someone please tell me the loction of the hole for the #10 hex self tapping screw that attaches the ground lead from the negative battery cable to the body at the PS fender reinforcer on 1968 Camaros. This is PN 9420415 and is #5 on UPC 12 A4 in the ASM.

A distance from say the ground lead screw hole location on the reinforcer to the centerline of the bolt for the rad support bar would be nice.

Cheers

Arno

 ...I'd need to go home and do an actual measurement, ...but isn't there a "dimple" in the area where it should be?

There should be a pre-pierced hole in the vertical wall of the fender reinforcement for that screw - it wasn't drilled at assembly.  :)

John

The only pre-pierced hole I have is on a small tab that sticks out at 90 deg from the reinforcer plate. This hole is too big for the #10 self tap screw. Any clue what this tab is for?  I've even felt the back and there is no hole or dimple. I am assuming that the wire mounts to the vertical drop off portion of the fender reinforcer between the 2 raised channels that run parallel along this section. Am i correct?

These are GM NOS circa 1980 RS fenders and everything else seems OK. Very odd.

Arno, maybe someone more familiar with the detail of 68's can respond; I pretty much focus on 69's.

Arno,
See photo, 8-13/16 from the edge of the extra metal support where the fender bolts to the core support to the center of the hole.

Hope that helps!
