Really? was on page 237 ( F25) and only see the old camaro bolt and nut and washers?
Also these were made in '75 And up with No indent ( completely flat) because the car header panel located the nose . Thoughts?

Looks like FS763B is the 70-71 style and would work if it has tabs to locate the nut in the bottom subframe hole.

You can weld a washer on the bottom. I think that was mentioned, and the size needed, in the video. It NEEDS to be located so the core can only move side to side. This sets the front to rear distance.

That could be. The original clips on that "shim" is what had the 3 tabs ( on bottom) to index the core support mounting, with the nut on the top.
Like I said in the video, I welded a nut on top and washer on bottom to make it work correctly. The washer needs to be 2.5 diameter.
could weld a washer to the bottom of a 75-77 unit as it is flat and has no "indent" because the header panel sets the distance.
