General Discussion / Manual shifter has very close gear locations
« on: June 04, 2010, 05:18:37 PM »
This spring I purchased a 1969 Camaro and found that the 4 speed Muncie transmission has little room when putting it into gear and I'm find that it is difficult to determine if your in reverse, first, or third. I have driven a lot of stands new and old and have never had one that is this tight between gear locations. Iím wondering if this is normal for this tranny model or is the linkage not setup correctly on the car. Any info would be great. My center console is missing but I canít see that being and issue (here is a picture).

I guess I'll have to use the OEM parts, and I did finally find a filter allowing air flow through both the sides and top inside the the air intake.


 :) The feed back I’ve received from this site has been great making me to ask another question. I have a cowl induction hood with a standard filter under it (no seal around the hood intake and I hate when things are installed to make a look but not utilized) and I’ve looked up cowl induction intake kits but they are not exactly what I’m looking for, the air filter intakes have been original intake in design when I’m looking for a intake kit that takes air into a filter from both the sides and the top. Also the intakes have a side draw for air within thee engine compartment which I’m assuming is for winter use to draw warm air into the carburetor or to prevent blockage in the cowl intake choking out the motor “but” I’m looking for a kit that draws air externally only into the carb and I have been unsuccessful. Is there such a kit or pieces that can be created to make that kit?

Looks like that could be my problem but I'll do a little more research to make sure. The info is great, thanks.

My understanding is there from the same era (69) and the width is 8" but i'm not sure.

Well I’ve driven my 69 for the first time and found the corvette rims with 15” 235 BF goodrich tires are rubbing in the rear, I was quiet surprised when I hear others with 255 and so forth on them. Is it my rims not being the proper rim for the car or what? When buying the car I was informed the rear end had new axels installed (4.11) but I can’t see that effecting the position of the tires in the wells. I’m going to take a hard look and make sure my axel hasn’t shifted but what I’ve could see so far it looks fine. I’m holding off buying tires until I can figure this out. I think going any smaller on the rear will really change the look of the car. When i get a chance I'll post a picture of the now and then later the after look you guys can decide if is better or not.

I Know a lot of camaro owners love the stock or cragar rims but I prefer the larger rims on the older cars and Iíve owned a 1970 dodge dart with 17ís a 1968 Delmont 88 with 20ís a 1969 GMC Ĺ tonne with 16Ē and I currently own a 1972 GMC Ĺ tonne with 18ís and now the 1969 camaro and I have never had one person ever say to me Iíve ruined the look because of the rims I installed. Iíve always received the thumbs up for a cool looking vehicle. Donít get me wrong I do like to see the stock car look but itís just not my thing. Iím more into the FOOSE looking redesigned old vehicles. I see I have a lot of replies but still not the info I was originally looking for, so dose anyone know the max size of tire? By the way charley cool looking ride.

I have purchased a 1969 Camaro RS recently and I'm looking to improve the look of the car with 18' or higher wheels and 235 or higher rubber. I'm not really into 60's corvette rims currently on it or going back to stock, but everything IĎve read on this sight is showing a 17Ē rim with 215ís on them being the maximum size. I have read the back can go to 255 or even 275 but Iíd like to keep the front and back the same (just a personnel preference for the look). As far as I know the suspension is stock. When looking at wheels and rims on tire sales sites they will sell you anything but I need to know what actually works. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
