1968 z28 speedo clips
« on: January 06, 2008, 09:38:30 PM »
I am doing some detail work on my 68 Z28.I can see were 2 speedo cable clips are but all the suppliers say 3 are required per car. I can see one located about 2 inches from were the cable exits the firewall and the other one is in the trans tunnel. Where would I look for the third clip?

Thats what I think to but hard to see with car on the ground. DR classics book says 3 per car. I will try to look in an assembly manual. Thanks Paul

Not sure if Z-28 differs from BB SS but there are 3 on mine.  See below.  The one right outside grommet is missing but you can see the hole, second is right the entrance to trans tunnel (partially blocked by end of ground strap) and third is deeper in trans tunnel right before cable makes bend to go to trans.
Hope this helps!

As your pic says, "see sheet A6", it shows the three clips.

No, and fortunately, when one of us is missing something original, another person may have that and be missing something we have original.  Put us together, here, and voila.
