Ive got the book open to the page now

this is great since i can see a clip i am missing.

I did call a reseller and they are emailing me a page of the instructions to review, they didnt want to send the whole thing

you all are awesome as always

Typical - they sell you a kit, it is missing parts and instructions and they don't want send replacements - I assume unless you repay for them.

If you have the right part numbers the height should not be an issue. The "tin plate" goes on top of the manifold then the fiber gasket then the carb. Once upon a time you could buy one gasket that sandwiched the plate and the fiber in one - maybe at Acme Auto Parts.

You are almost there. Now you either get lucky and search State and local county Tax records for the vin or hire a investigator to pound the pavement chasing paper. Also enlist any active Camaro Clubs in that area.

Yes no database version available today is going to give you the names and addresses it has been scrubbed from the government clearinghouse version which is the direct descendant of the original NICB database. The database falls under the Federal Privacy Act.

Most Law Enforcement subscriptions to the system will just confirm it is not stolen or scrapped and provide no history. Most departments privacy and ethics regulation will prevent in-depth running of vins for personal use by any officer in Auto Theft divisions not involved in an active criminal investigation of that vin.

On the bright side NICB has a warehouse full of yellowing documents and microfiche shipping records slowly being entered into the database. These are the records they used to sell direct to the public.  So over a period of time shipping records having been sanitized to government standards removing all identities and addresses may enter the public sector again.

You can look up my threads over at TC about this but here is the digest version:

The old insurance industry database was federalized and sanitized via the privacy act removing all names and addresses. All the approved vendors offering reports are pulling off the same database so the content will be the same, just the output is different.

Some are just raw tele-type looking printouts, others are full of slick graphics and explanations of the different title brands applied to that vehicle. So look at all the vendors sample reports and see what is best your your needs and eyes, then use them for your report. I used the one that offered paypal payments Auto Data Direct.

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.

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).  
297  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.
298  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?
