Re: ground strap locations

You are speaking of the radio supression straps? Two go from valve cover to fire wall.
Pasenger side is attached to inside valve cover bolt next to manifold.
Driver side is attached to outside valve cover bolt above the header.

There is another ground that attaches to iner fender on the passenger side to the frame.
The 4th is attached to the frame below heater box and ataches to firewall.

There is a small ground strap running from negative post on battery to the inner fender.
There is the larger ground from negative to the engine block.

Re: ground strap locations

The locations are all listed in your 1967 Camaro factory Assembly Manual.

That little ground wire to the fender sure makes a lot of smoke when you try and start the engine and forget to reinstall the engine-side ground strap.
Ya know, both original side post battery terminals are in the memory parts box. Wonder if remnants of that little wire are still there? Be right back.
Ah ha! Doen't look too bad.
