When a cowl plenum was purchased did the screws to attach the duct to the firewall come in the package also. I have seen different types of screws used. What is correct. thanks as always.

Take a look at the pics on this site and their attention to detail. There is a white '67Z under the customer car section w/cowl plenum. This might be the source your looking for...

Point...if you take the time to look at their site you will see a section where cars have been meticulously disassembled piece by piece. I am not absolutely certain, but they may have pics of the screws you are looking for.  

Go to their home pg and send them an email. You can access this under "Contact Us". Sometimes these things take a little leg work.

Good luck

5/16" indented head screws that are black phosphate in color.  Originals are on my white car.

When you are resizing pictures, look for a option, or check box to preserve the aspect ratio. That will keep them from distorting.
