ground straps

Does anyone know how many ground straps and the locations of them for a 69 camaro with a V8. I have been told all you need is 3 but I also have been told there were 5 ground straps. Thanks!

Re: ground straps

I am changing mine due to a new engine being dropped in. Anyway, there are 3. 1 each on both valve covers, connected to the firewall, and one on the subframe for grounding.

Get yourself an assembly manual. It shows where, they are supposed to go. Best 19.95 spent

Re: ground straps

There is actually 4 on V8s in the RPO U63/U69 AM or AM/FM Radio option.
1 on each valve cover (2),
1 connecting the subframe to the body near the body mount on the right side of the vehicle, and..
1 on the front right outer subframe rail, adjacent to the front (smaller) crossmember, attaching the subframe to the inner fender. This is the only ground strap that requires measuring the hole locations before drilling. All other holes are existing, or have dimples to indicate their location.

See AIM pgs440-1, RPO-U63/A6-7.

Nov 68 Van Nuys. 327 floor-shift-auto, Frost Green and not much else when new.
