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  :-[).

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  ;).

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.
