I have a 68 camaro that's engine is currently being reinstalled. Does anybody know where the other end of the ground strap that is attached to the right a-arm goes?
I can't seem to locate this info in any of my books. Thanks
Don't know about this particular strap - but I just went through this and you should have 3 ground straps total. I think my Factory Assembly guide shows the locations but it's for a '69. If you don't have one (you should!) someone here would probably be willing to look it up for you.
I do have an assembly manual, and I have only been able to locate the two ground straps for the valve covers and the one from the frame to the lower right firewall. This one was attached when I pulled the motor, and one end is attached to the a-arm near the steel fuel line end. I just can't recall where the other end went.
I have this same problem. The grounding straps to the valve covers (depicted on page 440 of the Assembly Manual) I have located and replaced. The fourth strap (depicted in the lower right hand diagram on page 441 of the Assembly Manual) is the one I can't seem to find. I guess I just can't figure out the diagram. Any ideas what location on the car that diagram is supposed to described?
You need to take the RF wheel off. The manual is showing you the front frame member which is in front of the suspension. The view in the manual is looking from the center of the car out toward the wheel well. The ground strap goes from the wheel skirt to the frame. It will be right in front of you when look in the wheel well. It looks confusing, but actually the diagram is looking at it backward from what you see with the wheel off. Hope this helps.
