My 02D Z/28 was delivered new in Canada, and had T60; I replaced the original (corroded) cables ten years ago with the same number reproduction cables (592-BR positive, 756-BH negative). It had a Delco #24-7YR battery in it when I bought it, and I just replaced it a few months ago with the same Delco Professional Series #24-7YR battery. Only lasted 12 years  Grin  Photo below shows its current battery and cable configuration, which is the same as its original configuration.

And that BR cable would be too short for a Y55 battery since it's a reverse terminal set-up (+ next to the fender).
So the MF cable would be longer.

The reproduction (factory fit ) BR positive cable has plenty of length as pictured in the post above to reach either teminal.  The BH negative is very tight(fender ground wire) for the reverse terminal setup. Your point is correct, but my reproduction cables fit otherwise. It would be helpful to compare the oriiginals to the repops.

Yeah, I could see how that would fit OK. John's neg cable would be long if that was a Y55 battery.

Does anyone reproduce the 6297684 AS positive battery cable? My 06A 69 Z has this cable on it.

Thanks,

Larry, did you try AMERICAN AUTOWIRE as Steve suggested in your ORIGINAL thread?

Of course, your other option would be to spend stupid money on THIS ONE.

Gary this guy is selling American Autowire. I got mine from him off the bay. He had a big sale going on and I saved about 20% on my order but of course I spent about $1000.00 with him that night.

"For LOS cars, the change to side post batteries occurred during the 05A week (cowl tag date). For NOR cars, it appears the change to the Y77 side post battery occurred in late April, while the R79 side post battery was used starting in early- to mid-May."

Thanks Paul. Of course my car is 05A. I own the car since 1978, but know of the car since 1975. It has always had a top mount battery in it. Anyone else close in production with a Norwood car ?

Buddy,
Your car is a NOR, so it's clearly after the side post change.

Thanks Kurt. I have owned it since 1978, and it had top mount cables then.

when I first bought my car (late 09C) in 1976, I had several people to tell me that the 'side mount battery is wrong for the car'.. and encouraged me to put in a topmount battery and change the cables...  I later learned the real story, and was glad I never followed their advice, but I'm sure the same thing happened to many other late build camaros during that period!  so maybe yours was one of them X77??
