Can anyone please help with a pic or conformation  as to where the mounting bolt goes on the heater box side when mounting this vent dump.

 There is a hole in the firewall for the left mount by the accelerator (circled in red). There are no other holes in the firewall by the heater box and I assume the hole (circled in red) is where it mounts.

 

I appreciate any info.

Youve probably already figured this out but, just in case, maybe this will help.

Thank you for posting the picture. I have seen a picture much like yours. However, the heater box opening and accelerator rod appear to be different than mine in both pictures I have seen showing this vent.

I'm still waiting for the heat  vent part to arrive in order to line it up with my excising holes. Based on your picture, the hole on the heater box is in a slightly different area on the box.

 

My concern, is my car is mid-'68 production and I wonder if the vent dump should be different part or even had one installed. Yet, this part is listed for all '67-'68 firebirds. 

 

Can anyone explain why there is a clear difference between mine and the other picture now posted?
