Re: 1970 L34 positive battery cable routing
Your 1970 assembly manual should show three pages for that diagram.There were three pages of the Battery Cable routing,& you show the first version.
Page 628 is the final design,and shows that production clip/location was actually deleted before cars were produced for 1970.
Begining in 1970,Batteries were grounded at the Pass.BB head in the early production months,Later BB cars were eventually grounded at the Alternator Bkt.Even though an early built 1970 Chevelle received the NEW BB upper alt. Bkt with the threaded hole to ground these at,(and Alt. adjusting Hole),they stiil were mistakenly grounded at the head by the Ass.Line worker,(Used in 1969) untill they were notified to change this.
Assembly Manuals are iffy..meaning when you buy a reproduced one,chances are the reproducers deleted most of the pages that count.For 1970,it should be 915 pages TOTAL.
DON'T go to the Back when buying one of these to see if there is a page 915.That won't show you if they deleted the pages in between.
You need to look through it entirely to see if they are all there.
Your example here is a perfect one as to why you should do this.
Chances are if you bought it new wrapped in Cellophane,it is a Shortened knockoff.
The reproducers remove the earlier or later pages to save costs & just show you one possiblity of a diagram.
