    On a 70 Camaro is there supposed to be a battery cable clip somewhere near the idler arm? And does the cable go between the motor mount tower and frame?

    The year would help, but there are three clips on a 1970 Camaro and you can see how it routes under the motor mount in the assembly manual. Below are the clips on my '70 Z28.

    1 attaches to the frame near the idler

    1 attaches to a motor mount bolt (mine is attached to the lower bolt, but that's where it was when I bought the car 23 years ago)

    1 is attached to the oil pan.

    The Oil Pan Clip is not in the assembly manual because that clip was attached to the engine during it's assembly prior to the engine being installed in the car.

    Does anyone happen to have the oil pan clip available? I’ll take one if the OP finds theirs first.

    Looks like I'm missing all 3. I see the oil pan clip is available reproduction- anybody have the 2 others I could buy?

    The Revision Record shows that clip 3990864 was added on 4/1/70 and that clip 3973662 was used prior.
