Thank you for the info.  I just added a clock to a '69 that already had the console gauges.  The wire harness was confusing so I didn't put it in. I have all the manuals just lost patience after 3 days under the dash replacing the dashpad.  Those damn clips!

I see cars with a center console that includes gauges, but no clock in the dash cluster.  I thought the clock came with the console gauge package.  Am I wrong, or was just the console gauges added to a non gauges car?

I deal with Steve's Camaro in San Bruno, CA  because he is local and has great service.  All he does is 67-69.  Dave

If you are not in a "smog" state taking out the vanes and plugging hoses helps.  Still looks stock.

A shaky 7.  Advancing the timing helps a little.

The 3rd picture is what was on my '68 Z that I had from '71 to '75.

I gave it up a few years back also because of logon issues.  Don't think I've missed much.  Dave

I was a member @ Team Camaro for about 10 years.  One day I couldn't logon.  Since I couldn't contact anyone on the site for help I gave up.  It's been many many months now.  I don't miss it.

I'm in the same boat.  I ran some utilities that wiped cookies.  Now I can't logon to Team Camaro either.  You can't contact them send them unless you are already logged on.

A while back they wanted members to update their passwords to be longer and include numbers and symbols.  I never updated mine so using my old password in useless.

I recently had a fuel pump from NAPA auto parts.  I was having drivability problems along with a gas smell when driving a highway speeds.  It turned out to be the fuel pump. I put a pressure guage on it and it read 9.5 lbs. of pressure.  I solved the problem by adding a regulator. I mounted it to the front of the cylinder head using one the accessary holes.

The cable core spins freely in the sheath. I had the core out right after I installed new cable when still "flickered" I lubed the core with white lithium grease from a tube (not spray).  The driven gear is also new.  It installed with no issues.  The cable is routed and secured at the factory locations.  I have ordered a used original speedo to try next.  It won't show up till this weekend.  I will follow up.  ???

I've been having this problem for quite some time.  I have replaced the cable and the driven gear.  I also pulled  the core out of the new cable and lubed it with white lithium grease.

It there a way to lube the speedo itself?  What would I used if it can be lubed?

 It's a '69 Camaro.  Thanks, Dave

The speedo is an OER repo unit.
