I have boxes of the Muncie shifter parts and I know some are for 3 speed but it had to ID the parts when they are all sitting in a box.

 I have the trans levers for a 3 speeds because I had some 3 speed shifters
The lever for 1st and Rev is longer and has the small hole for the rev light rod

the one with the 9/16 thread looks like its for 66/67 Chevelle not for 69 Camaro

I collect shifters and had a bunch of them over the last 30 years of buying them at swap meets. Some had the original chrome shifter balls,
they used to sell on ebay for $100 to $200 depending on the condition of the chrome

 there was a repop non magnetic aluminum ball out at one time but not sure if they still sell them

Hurst makes a small lever that bolts on over the rev lever so you can use the rod with a rev lever that does not have the hole

I had many OEM Shifters and all of the originals I had were black rev lever and silver cad for forward gears

Some say they have seen original silver rev levers and some repops are silver

I have an original low mile set now and it is silver forward gear levers and black rev

The forward levers have the molded on rubber bushing but the rev levers didn't have it so there was a different process for the levers

it looks like the ball for the large diameter early Chevelle and Corvette but sombody tried to modify it to fit 3/8 - 16 thread used on 69 Camaro Hurst
here is an original
21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original Hurst Shifter or Not on: October 25, 2013, 09:43:09 AM
yes they are date coded , I have a page full of dates I collected over many years of buying Camaro shifters

the 68 69 Firebird used the same shifter but a different date code
Camaro used 6 or 7 characters
Pontaic 4 or 5  characters  on GTO and Firebird Hurst shifters

there were also replacement shifter and those codes don't fall in with the assembly line shifters

common 69 camaro examples are 29D21C  feb 1969, 108D41C Oct 1968

68 69 Firbird example 88D4 Aug 1968 , 98B5 Sep 1968
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Where can I find Baldwin Motion emblems? on: October 10, 2013, 08:27:24 AM
do you mean the black and chrome Motion emblem?

The Motion emblem (the word MOTION) was not used in 1969 but some put them on the car and the valve covers.

There was some repops on ebay

That H C ad is incorrect.The SS427 was from the 1968 Impala deck lid  so was not used on the 67 Motion cars but was used on some 68 and 69 Motion
Camaros and even on some Motion Corvettes.

1967 Yenkos had the tach mounted below the ign switch

I have seen some with aftermarket manual choke cable there

also maybe an aftermarket fog light switch

is the white 427 Camaro a double COPO?

I remember a white one like that that had original paperwork that showed it had COPO 9561 and COPO 9511  (special order 4.56 gear)
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Chevy Camaro Only Unrestored COPO in the World! on: October 02, 2013, 07:19:53 AM
I don't think it is the only iron 427 Camaro that is unrestored but definitely not the only unrestoed 427 COPO Camaro including ZL1s
as there is this amazing ZL1 story.

There are some 427 COPO Camaros that were old race cars that remain mostly unrestored but have mods from racing since new

unrestored ZL1

Motion used the Pontiac hood tach on some cars , Yenko used the Dixco hood tach on the 1970 LT1 Yenko Deuce Nova
the hood tachs look similar and are very light weight. The Dixco was widely used and had verisions sold by Ford and Mopar and as an aftermarket part and there was a repop of it sold by some Mustang vendors


I like the 67 Corvette stinger hood on 67 Camaros and the 68 L88 hood on 68 camaros although either one looks good on a 1st gen

This Corvette Bronze 68 Motion Camaro was built with a tear drop scoop hood then was brought back to Motion for a L88 hood replacement
It is low mile original MP car

from what I remember , on the original motor mount, if the molded rubber broke free from the metal, the engine was free to raise up quiet a bit

the redesigned motor mount had a tee shaped metal safety catch built in, so if the molded rubber broke free from the metal, the engine did not raise up as much.

It you replaced the original motor mount with the new design you did not need to reinstall the safty cable.

I remember replaceing some of these when I worked at a service station in high school. The machanic hated doing them so would save them for me to do.
The test for a broken motor mount was to raise the hood, start the car, put it in gear with brakes on, and gas it. Then watch how high the engine would torque up. Looked like the engine would pop out.

I don't think they were made of pot metal for two reasons. I used to work with pot metal castings and we always had trouble with air pockets and weak threads. The OEM ball does not have those issues. They look to be made of aluminum to me.

The problem with the OEM ball was the chrome came off. Most of the originals I have seen, had chrome pealing off.

They do get hot in summer and cold in winter.

here is a pic showing the notches in an original
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Chrome shifter knob on: July 23, 2013, 07:23:22 PM
they don't say if it is magnetic or non-magnetic like the originals

I had a few originals and they had small notches on the undercut
