286  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z28 Dashboard Switch- what is it for? on: August 19, 2011, 08:11:18 AM
It has an up and down toggle function; could it be for the rear defroster? 
According to the AIM, that what it is.

I've seen two repro shifters, one a Camaro and the other the Chevelle, and both of them had the early style detent with the six balls.  The Camaro repro had the gate spring and hat installed but the Chevelle as I stated earlier did not have the gate spring but did have the hole for the spring and hat.

Joe & Harvard....all the parts pretty much match up between a repro and original.  I bought a Chevelle repro shifter body, no handle or mounting ..they are cheaper, and used some of the small parts to complete an original and the only problem I noticed was that the reverse detent housing from the repro would not seat into the original main cage....had to use the original detent housing and the other parts from the repro.  You can plainly see that all the flat metal parts on the repro, like the cages and shifter arms, are laser cut...whereas the original ones are stamped cut.  But there are no significant differences when viewing the two side by side.   Oh yes, the Chevelle repro did not have a gate spring and hat assembly and the photos in the ad even showed the gate spring missing.  Does anyone know if the Chevelle shifter came that way from the factory?

I understand that the repros are made from the original drawings....not sure about the quality of the steel in the parts.

nice item.
The small Muncie shifter parts are hard to find. I had a box of parts from the old days of cutting off the chrome stick to convert for use on aftermarket Hurst shifters and i saved those small parts.

I am rebuilding one now and need the rubber donut.

Anyone have a extra rubber donut that goes on the main shaft between the shifter and the mount plate or know of a source?


Joe....what are you using to replace the springy cover, that holds the ball bearings in place and holds tension on them, on the reverse detent assembly?  Haven't found anything good yet...am looking at using some heat shrink tubing...put the tubing over the bearings and shrink it down.

ED....I think Joe was referring to the rubber retainer that looks like a grommet  that fits over the main shaft.  Item #7 on the diagram below.  I would like to have a couple myself.  I've found some regular rubber grommets that are 1 1/8" outside diameter and 5/8" inside diameter that might work out...haven't ordered them yet though...still looking for the originals.

Marty.....check this link for Paragon Corvette....it is for a 1970 corvette closed air cleaner but it might fit.  If you have any other questions about this item you might give their tech support a call and see what their opinion is as to fit.

293  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ever heard about punch 4 camaro Z28 on: August 11, 2011, 08:54:35 PM
My info indicates 1967 & 1968 only.
294  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ever heard about punch 4 camaro Z28 on: August 11, 2011, 08:02:02 PM
I presume that you are talking about the Z28-4 option....it is a regular Z28 plus Exhaust headers and air plenum intake.

Other Z28 options were
     Z28-1     Regular Z28 option
     Z28-2     Air plenum intake only
     Z28-3     Exhaust Headers only

Jerry,Muncie shifters?
Yup.....Muncies!  Need some parts.....might have it.
296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67-68 shifter mounting nuts - for sale on: August 10, 2011, 02:47:01 PM
Kurt....Now you tell me....I bought at keast three used shifters on Ebay before I finally got those nuts.  Seriously though....I was also looking for other shifter parts when these nuts finally showed up on one of them.  Don't know for sure how many used shifters I now have but I think I now have enough good parts to make two complete shifters and rods.

Do you have any other shifter parts on hand?  Always need to know additional sources for any part.

The only problem with re-chroming the lid is the silk screening underneath.....it will be gone.   You would then need to send it somewhere to get the silk screening redone.  I think Paragon Corvette can sell you a reproduction, re-chrome your existing lid, re-screen your existing lid, or re-chrome and re-screen your lid.  Their Tech telephone number is  (810) 655-4641 (this is not a toll free number), give them a call and they can fill you in with all the details...might want to check with them before trying to get it re-chromed elsewhere.
