The key is transmission drive gear teeth. If your transmission has a 8 tooth drive gear the following should work for
4.10 Rear Axle,  F70-14 Tires, 8 tooth Drive Gear (P/N 3924098), 20 tooth Driven Gear (P/N 3860343),  Adapter P/N 6476736. This is good for 3 or 4 speed transmission.

As been mentioned the Gardner system is a near perfect replication of the original and the way to go if your planning to have the car judged. If you are not necessarily into original and want more of a performance system the American Thunder by Flowmaster gives you a good value. The flowmaster system is not close to original, although the tail pipes give you an original type look.

I believe I answered my own question "The transmission drive gears you mention 8&9 tooth, was 16 also used? "

The 16 tooth drive gear was used in the Turbo Hydramatic application.

Another isssue that comes into play is the drive gear on the main shaft.  There are two, 8 and 9 tooth.  In my 35+ years of rebuilding Muncies, I have seen both used for the same model year application.

I agree with you and Kurt regarding the use of the reducer "The use of the reducer involved a couple of variables such as tire size and transmission shaft/speedo gear as well." (driven/drive gears)

The transmission drive gears you mention 8&9 tooth, was 16 also used?

I have a listing of reducers which shows it was possible to have one on a 373 gear car as well. Have you seen any used on any 15" wheel applications such as z28's and Yenkos?


BTW everyone have a safe and happy New Year

You got it. I had a lot of fun isolating that problem. Grin
381  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Black Z28/RS Grill on: December 30, 2007, 09:30:32 PM
I'm finally getting around to correcting a few restoration issues on my '69 Z28/RS.  It's black with white stripe as original.  Only problem is the previous owner did not paint the grill the original Argent color.

Can someone tell me how much of the grill was Argent?  Is the entire area within the chrome trim around the grill what needs to be Argent?

In the case of black RS cars they received a silver grill (all other cars received black rs grills). Original silver grill plastic was tan/grey color and then painted silver from the front side. The silver coverage was complete looking from the front side, however from the back side you could still see the tan plastic on the outer edges.

If you have a black grill, you may want to paint the whole grill  tan/grey color first and then apply the finish silver.

I don't understand how the low fuel module could be attributed to a defective oil pressure gauge. The gauge is mechanical. The only electrical in the oil pressure gauge is the light buib.

The bulb actually touched the oil gauges copper band. That curved band deflects proportional to the oil pressure. Since the bulb was touching the band (mechanically interfered), limiting how much it could deflect, hence limiting oil pressure reading to 20lbs.

Would a 1969 L78 Camaro  with M20 and 410 rear come with a gear reduction unit? If so what is the part number?

410 4spd cars with 14 inch wheels received speedo reducer.

Interesting to note that cars equipped with 15" wheels such as Z28's and 9737  (sports car conversion) did not.  The use of the reducer involved a couple of variables such as tire size and transmission shaft/speedo gear as well.

The low fuel module does have what looks like a bulb socket(DO NOT INSTALL BULB). A friend of mine had just purchased a car and asked me to check it over, well what I found was that it had low oil pressure. After some diagnostics I found the previous owner had in fact installed a bulb in the low fuel module, which caused a mechanical interference with the oil pressure gauge, limiting the oil gauge from reading any higher than 20lbs.

My 67 la built l35 pace car had an open element and the lid was painted black.

Yes I briefly saw it 10 plus years ago. As I stated, I am with you regarding the mileage. The firewall and floor pans and paint looks awesome.
388  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: UNRESTORED ORIGINAL 68 SS 350 on: December 17, 2007, 11:04:28 AM
Based on the pics, I would think you could conclude that some degree of painting/restoring has been done to the engine, shocks and possibly other areas. I am not questioning the mileage. These are the  are the types of cars you need to see in person. I will say I see lots of original well perserved areas as well.
389  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: "388" block on: November 28, 2007, 10:39:33 PM
Originally it was thought to be rare, but as more data has been collected it is fairly common block. Certainly it doesn't add value over 010,618 or other four bolt configured blocks. This block has also been found in a few Z28's that I have inspected as well.

I found this site which has the Cyrkle hits including Camaro. Red Rubber Ball was a very popular song back then.
