RPO K30 was a factory option (or dealer installed accessory) for 1967 and 1968, but only available on V8 Powerglide cars. In 1969 it was only available as a dealer installed accessory.

Sorry guys, I've been MIA for awhile.

Let me know if you still need the instructions. I shared them around a few years back. The set I sent previously was what came in a complete system box for Dealer installation that was packaged by the manufacturing plant. I still have an extra setup that i photographed extensively that shows all parts needed for a full installation as it came out of the box. There are a couple of minor differences between the dealer install kit and the factory installed system that came on my Camaro.

Hey Big Iron, I hope all is well. PM me your number so we can catch up. Its been an interesting few years with lots of changes. All good though.

Bc69 - The throttle clip is a different design. This attaches the ball chain to the throttle arm that runs up from the accelerator assembly. The arm has a hole located in it for a mounting screw to mount the clip for factory installed cruise. One clip wraps around while the other is only edge located. The other main difference is in the design of the transducer. The input location is different on the dealer transducers I have seen. This could have been a running change. The finish and overall appearance is the same.

A rare part is the turn signal arm. This was injection molded ABS and Chrome plated. The lack of structural ribbing on the part often led to them breaking just past the end of the steel arm due to fatigue. GM had a black plastic replacement part that used the same switch and connector that is more commonly seen on heavily driven cars.

I hope that helps.

The throttle arm has hole but clip is not screwed to it.

Sure. I believe I have photos of both. I can send them to you or post here. The files are on a drive at work and I have off tomorrow. Does Thursday work?

Cheers,
John

Sorry for delay BC,

I have the images. Let me know what you would like to see. I have two clips. One  installed is showing an installation of a factory system that was moved to a car at Ricks First gen. Sorry bu t that is the best quality image they provided me. the other is from a dealer system that had a part design change. This clip was never installed. It would use the threaded punched hole on the throttle arm for a single fastener. It was installed vertically with the return wrapping around the edge of the arm to the other side to hold it in position. the two prongs or fork grabbed the ball chain.

BC,
Here is another image of the first clip design compliments of Big Iron from a few years ago.

Also, this is the lever on a 68. There was a service replacement part used for both 67 and 68 applications available that you could buy through the dealer but was discontinued in the mid 1990's. The replacement was black but used the same switch, wiring harness and arm. The plastic end was redesigned. I have one somewhere I could dig up if someone needed to see it.

The lever on mine as you see is ribbed.
If I understand this was ones first used. They were prone to break so
Your style was the upgrade.  My clip is just like one that is pictured in
The aim.

BC,

Which one is in the Aim? I do not recall as i do not have an AIM.

The turn signal arm I posted is what is used on a 1968 factory and dealer installation. Smooth and chrome plated ABS. The replacement is Black and a different shape. I have never seen a 1967 turn signal arm. Do you know the ribbed arm to be original? Is it a metal casting or plated plastic?

Hey Bob, I hope all is well. Lets get on the phone and catch up.

Yes to my knowledge and going through the files on this car, the lever is original. Chrome ribbed ABS
The clip also seems to be.
Having troubles with file size for pic
