Steve and Bryon are correct.  Pull the trans/tailshaft and remove gear.  BTW you can't access the tailshaft area through the side cover due to the midplate. 

Point proven again.

Hmm same thing I said in my previous post. Seems a bit redundant. But nice of you to chime in.

Also not so much the just the mid plate as the rear bearing (#30) being in the way of access, also as I stated above, but thats OK if you missed it. I guess since the mid plate somewhat holds that bearing in place you could say both prevent access.

Gear is probably in the tailshaft, not the main case.
Well I thought you would be able to fish it out from going through the main case. Going through my pics of munches, I think the rear main bearing would prevent access to get to the tail shaft. Could you just remove the tail shaft, and re-install?
(might have to drain, and refill some of the trans)

 Hmm, with the car jacked up, can you just pull off the side cover, get the gear out and pop the side cover back on?
I have done it outside the car pretty easy. Not sure how hard it is to do with the trans still in the car. You just have to make sure the shifter forks go back in the slides when re-installing.

Man how many times do I have apologize here?
SORRY he did say it was a "intake", (with partial part number) guess I should have tried to look it up and figured it out before posting, instead of having him tell me what motor it was used on.

Many times members don't even respond to guys questions. (I posted at the same time Joe did, and didn't see his response.)

Next time I will make sure someone isn't posting more info at the time. (usually there is warning sign that pops up, guess i missed it)

Don't want to make anymore "useless" posts...

All I was saying to the OP is that not every guy that has a 67-68 Z even knows all the part numbers on his own car. I have seen guys post questions and not get any response from anyone, because they will list just a part number by itself.
Sorry if it came off rude. A new member listed a part number he was looking for a couple of weeks ago, didn't give much detail as to what it was, and didn't post a pic. I waited a bit and noticed he wasn't getting any responses. So I asked him a few questions because I tried searching the number with little results.

I guess I could have looked the part number up, seen what the application was then figured out it was a 67-68 Z intake and then came back on and told him it was for the power brakes. Maybe thats me being lazy... or the OP? ::)

What application was that intake used for?
ex: if it is Z/28, then I would specify, that you are trying to put together a stock Z/28 manifold and want to know what goes in the 1/2" hole by the distributor. The more details you can use in your question, the better the chance guys will respond to help you out.

I only say this because I have seen guys ask very basic questions, and not get a response. Then they think were all stuck up or something for not answering.

I don't have a 68 (yet) so I can't help you out on your question  ;)

Mine looks just like the one Bentley posted, except the small protrusion on the diagnol is on the other side. No holes, and hex fixed nut.

You can send pictures to someones private email.
You can upload pictures to a thread.
I don't understand sending pictures "in" a post?
If you are signed in on your phone and viewing a thread I think you can scroll down to the bottom and attach a pic.

Bill I am deducting points from your car at the next show for the reproduction clip,

Unless you post a pic of you standing on your head with the stick and mallet.

BTW does your Doctor recommend this type of head stand right after surgery .... ;D

I now someone who had a thousand or so made by a plastics injection molder from an original cap he had on a survivor. Total cost was about $600.

Wow, he had a whole batch made from one, and likely only used 3 of the 600. What happened to the rest?

OK Tim when I got my early 10B L.A. car all the smog was in a box, I have since installed it on the car. I looked at the bracket just now for you. Mine has a hex head captive nut. the bottom of my bracket has no holes, and at the edge of the flat part there is a slight extension of just the flat portion of about an 1/16th of an inch. Sorry no pics yet. Let me see if i can find a better image for you, of what I am talking about.

 I have been looking for about 10 minitues, and I saw another survivor car with the same style as mine, but I had to really zoom in to see it. I have noticed there are MANY MANY brackets out there, all claiming to be original. Some with square, and some with hex fixed nut. Some CRG guy here I would think would have one.

. I am guessing there were multiple vendors of this bracket, so it is going to appear a little different from one to another.

So did you end up flying out there, and then couldn't close the deal?
Or did it not get that far?

Ok, so When you said "directional lenses", I was thinking arrows molded into the plastic or something. Now that I know you are referring to the stainless trim used on the early cars, I am up to speed. thanks
