The first link I posted (Reply #2 above) is a picture I grabbed from ebay several years ago. It was being advertised as a 68 Camaro 396 pump. (But then again, what on ebay ISN'T for a Camaro!!)

The second link I posted (Reply #7) shows a picture of the pump that came with my car when I first got it. It WASN'T attached to the engine, but was sitting in the trunk instead. At the time (and for a long time), I thought it was the original pump for my car since it's exactly like the one in the ebay auction, but the date (November 28th, 1966) shows it to be for a 67 and not a 68.

By the way, that pump is now in my car and it fits just fine. Is it 68 Camaro big block? Is it full size?

HuhHuh

Yes, but that, being a Z28, is a small block, right?

The 69 P&A only shows one pump ( 7800515 ) for all the 67,68 V8 Camaros. The pumps are the same but the BB hoses are longer and have different numbers.
I had a 396 68 SS/RS (bought it new) and it had the same arrangement as is shown in the 67 AIM.
I am building 67 BB and it will have the pump as shown in the 67 AIM.
Just checked my 67 Corvette BB and the AIM and the pump is the same (different #) but has a female connector for the high pressure hose. Return is in the same location as the 67,68 Camaro.
ED,
I have another pump like your's and it is from a 67? BB Chev.

Thanks for your efforts and your reply.
At this point, I will assume the pic sent by 68z28 would be the correct one for my application.
Thanks again
Rod.

Okay boys and girls. Martin sent me a picture of the "correct" 67-68 Camaro big block pump and it was veified by Troy (thanks guys), so here you go.

Like Bob noted, it appears mine is from a 67 full size. Time to junk it!!

ED,
Do not junk it as maybe some of the Pass guys may need one. I think that the 66 Pass. BB was a rather rare ride. Grin

Just looked it up and the 66 Pass was available with a 427 390 or 425HP. I have always liked the 427's, broad power band. Not only rare but must have been fun to drive.

 This is a rear shot taken thru the motor mounts of the BB pump on my original 67 LOS 4B L35.
Comparing Ed's picture to this the return nipple bend looks correct relative to the lower mounting stud.
Hope this helps.

Looks exactly the same as the photo of the '68 Z/28 power steering pump I posted in reply #4!   Roll Eyes

Mike,
The high pressure line should go down and under the engine sand with the return line. Is the high pressure hose original ? Should not be a 90 degree at the pump but more like a 45 degree fitting on the hose. The 67 AIM N40 A6 gives explicit instructions on how these lines are to be installed so that engine torque does not fatigue the fitting and does not cause problems with the hoses.
Do you have the sleeves on your hoses?

Paul,
Your's is correct except for the lack of rubber sleeves.

Well, according to the 67 and 68 AIM, and the September, 1968 P&A, ALL 67-68 Camaro V8 applications used the same pump assembly (P/N 7800515) and the same reservoir (P/N 5692845).

I could have sworn the big block was different than the small block. Old age I guess!

Hi Bob,

  The hoses were on the car when I bought it back in 1980 and they still have the sponge like sleeves and the round rubber coated ring circling them. The car did have headers installed when I bought it and I put the original manifolds back when I brought it home (the owner supplied them). The hose routing was draped upwards to clear the headers and I never bothered to route them back on the other side of the mount.
