This seems to be all a person can do & there should be a lot of them out there in junk yards or maybe at swap meets. Just be carefull, I'm sure their awfully brittle.

I agree w/Jerry!

I'm not sure how much detail you are after here, but just in case, this "Strap" was added on 1-23-69...hopefully you can begin to understand how important it is to have the AIM.

Hey Marty, I don't see the clip on the alternator bracket. Does this strap take place of the clip? I thought I read somewhere the clip was discontinued and replaced with a strap. Is this the case?

Daniel - Unfortunately all I have to go on is the AIM and its usually the safest bet. If you look at AIM C48 - A2 both are used in unison. Also, the Revision Record only states it was added. Doesn't say anything about a replacement. I guess the thing to remember is both the clip & strap (or some sort of hook) went into effect on 1-23-69. Hope this helps.

I'm curious to know what #11 looks like installed. Does anyone have a pic they can share?

#11 isn't a hook, its a plastic strap/tie wrap. It secures the battery cable and alternator cable harness together. On AC cars such as yours it may have been routed differently,as pictured.

I guess a strap makes sense as long as the negative cable is attached to the swivel clip at the Alternator bracket. Otherwise it would be worthless. As my post stated, I was just interested in seeing a pic as it applies to the AIM. No need now that I know its a strap (knuckle head...it says it right on the AIM  Embarrassed).

BTW #11 wouldn't apply to me...my car is a 12A build. Although I like this set up much better (strap to light harness & neg-cable).

Here is my 9B of 68 built L34. There was always a clip attaching the alternator harness to the alt bracket. Not sure what you are searching for, but below is a picture my L34 survivor. I have higher resolution just PM me.

Steve - this thread has changed topic about 3/4 times... sorry if you've been mislead. I agree with you 100% with regards to the negative cable as it relates to the swivel clip on the alternator bracket. My question has nothing to do with that. I was just curious to know what #11 was/is per AIM C48 - A2. When I first looked at it, it looked like it was attached to the alternator itself. You answered my question when you mentioned it was nothing more than a strap. I over looked the description at the top of the AIM pg.

The reason it doesn't apply to me is because #11 was added on 1-23-69 (per Revision Record at the bottom right corner of the AIM pg.). Any cars built prior to this date did not have them. This is why I stated it does not apply to my 12A built car. Hope this clears things up  Wink.

That doesn't mean there wasn't something there before that this strip replaced. And you need to read http://www.camaros.org/AIM.shtml - that date has nothing to do when it was implemented on the production line.

I'm not sure how anyone keeps up with all this stuff. Thanks, I found it towards the bottom of your link. If I read this correctly, just about any 69 can have this strap. In that case I think I'll add it. Seems like a good idea.

The date of a revision almost never indicates the date the change actually took place on the line; it just shows when the sheet was revised, which could have been well ahead of or well after the part change occurred in production at the assembly plant.
