There are several router hopper virus attacks that TC users are prone to. I got a hit on Wednesday or Thursday that Malware-bytes blocked its access to a IP address in Russia. It was trying to download a file x.exe Malware-bytes then removed a Trojan.

There are a lot of speedometer shops such as Bob's Speedometers, Speedometers limited, just to mane a few. Hit google for ones in your area.
Also Year One has restoration services for speedometer, tach, clock and console gauge units.  http://www.yearone.com/serverfiles/fbshopmain2.asp?hid=812AA11668

I am going through the misery now.
Yeah I noticed your other thread. I was looking to see if I kept any of the Chevelle info I had. If I find it I'll pm it over to you.

Hurst made custom shifters for many GM lines including the Chevrolet models Camaro, Chevelle, but also for Olds, and Pontiac over the years. I would say if you are trying to use a Hurst OEM shifter that was made for a Chevelle on a Saginaw in a Camaro you are going to need some custom made rods and linkage.

You can try rods and levers from a Competition Plus retail shifter for a Saginaw trans but change out the bushings for steel ones - Hurst Speed Pac or also known as the Pit Pac bushings.  You will most likely need to use the U clamp tail mounting method if the Hurst won't bolt to the standard Muncie shifter plate on the Saginaw. If your head isn't spinning yet you might also just want to scrap it all and buy a new comp plus retail with linkage for a Sag and call it done. At least that has a 99.9% chance of working the first time, and shifting every time. Dropped shifts and constant re-setting are signs that the shifter and linkage are mis-matched. Nothing like being in traffic stuck in neutral (better then fourth).  
292  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Clock Repair Recommendations on: January 03, 2012, 11:40:29 PM
If you can find one a clock maker should have no issues. Year One repairs them, and a speedometer shop might also work on them.
293  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Shifters on: January 03, 2012, 10:27:50 PM
Since the Competition Plus line of shifters was only aftermarket over the counter there were generic and specific mounts, rods, and linkage per application and year.  
They were not just over the counter. Z/28 and all 69 four speeds had them.
No Actually the Competition Plus is a retail line. Hurst made custom shifters to OEM specs for Factory installation only, for GM, and others in the late 60's early 70's that are not Comp Plus line shifters. These special shifters were available as service replacement from GM parts counters but not sold as retail units. The competition plus line was sold retail and marketed for the same vehicles that they manufactured special factory OEM units for. So in effect you could order a sag trans and get a muncie shifter from the factory, but buy a Comp Plus shifter down the corner at ACME and have a much better shifter.

While they may all "look" the same they are not. The Comp plus line had adjustment bolts front and back and other features such as push down to reverse lock out.  Factory OEM Hurst shifters do not. The linkage, rods, sticks and mounting plates are not interchangeable between the two lines for the most part. While you may get a rod or two or a lever or two to work, the factory stuff works best with factory OEM Hurst shifters, and aftermarket over the counter works best on them. Mixing an matching the parts causes misery - been there done that.  I spent hours researching archives.  There should be a few decent links here and at TC documenting the difference.

If this is an extended year 1969 didn't some of the rear and engine stampings become year 70, after August 1969?

Try calling D & Classics since they have the 67 & 68 listed in their catalog, maybe they have a lead on a 69.

What is the name of the company?

Yup D & R Classic is the name. Here is the link to their site.

All sounds reasonable.

Maybe an employee purchase?

Is it possible that this vehicle was ordered with custom paint or other options that were not on the lot so the dealer actually sold the vehicle on this date as the order was transmitted?
