Did 1967 console gauge cars also have a low oil pressure switch?  Was it located in the rear of the engine block (any pics)?  It was separate from the oil pressure line?    Where did the low oil pressure light come on when illuminated - dash cluster?  Thanks

 I don't think so. The gauge attachment point to the block is where the oil light pressure sensor would have been screwed into if you didn't order the gauge package.
I have two BB 67's and the one with the gauge option has the oil line screwed in the same block fitting that the 'idiot light' sensor is screwed into on the other car.
The AIM shows this in U17 / A4

I've never saw any  car with both units. Does your car have both? If so where are the senders located?

Nope. The oil pressure gauge line occupied that port next to the distributor on a car with gauges.

The OIL lamp in a car w/o gauges would be next to the BRAKE lamp in the speed-o.  There is a (low) FUEL lamp in cars with gauges instead of the OIL lamp.

Thanks for the info.

My car has the oil gauge and not the switch.

Mike,
Just wondering, do your 67's have a brass fitting or a rubber grommet for the oil line at the firewall?

Hi Bob,

  It's a grommet. I do have a brass one that I pulled from a parts car back in '87 that was screwed thru the firewall and the oil line was 2 pieces. I heard here that was never factory fitting but I dispute it because I have heard other people with the same setup in earlier Camaros. The car I removed this from was Dec 66 SS350 if I remember right.

Thought that was standard on Chevelle and Impala lines in mid sixties, maybe dealership service replacements?

 Anyone with the brass fitting have pictures to post?
I'm looking for one I pulled from a car 25 years ago to take a picture of.
I'll post it when I find it so we can compare.

Mike,
Just trying to pin down the change over date to the rubber grommet. I have a 05E build and not sure what to use as the change over was some time in May or June. Grin

I found the fitting and attached 2 pictures showing the body and the oil line compression method.
I removed this from a Dec 66 Camaro w/gauges parts car in '82 (not 87 like I said before). Notice there is a nut in the middle of the fitting to snug it to the firewall.

My 67 5B NOR car has the grommet and a single oil line. Looking at U17/A3 & A4 I see "Redrawn & redesigned" 3-10-67 and just show the grommet so I wonder if they eliminated the brass fitting if it did exist

Hi Brian K. here, I took a quick measurement of the firewall to engine block line and it's about 7 inches long. I dont have access to my inside line but the Chevrolet service bullentin says that dealers are to take off the junction, drill the hole bigger (1/2 inch in size) use the line thats inside the car to go to the block (it supposed to be long enough) and add the rubber grommet part number 3906193. Remember this is for people bringing their cars back to the dealer with oil leaks, that how GM told the dealer to fix it. The bullentin says effective June 5, 1967 the 2 piece design will be replaced to this one piece set up in production cars. My 11E build 67 RSSS has this set up owned since 1988, my original lines are white translucet in color. The current repops are black, I've found a good replacement from Auto Meter part number 990023 which looks and functions like original. Glad to help, I'm using my dads account here sorry for any confusion. Sincerely Brian Kotula
