Yes you could swap in an working OEM Tach, but just be aware that most aftermarket Tachs will require that you use a filter if you have stock dizzy and ignition.

A more difficult procedure would be to bench test your unit but If you have a sinewave generator, or access to one you can bench test the unit.

I would double check your Voltage Regulator and Alternator outputs and check the wiring connection at the fuse block and the back of the tach, and the brown wire out to the coil.

Page 474 and 475 of the 1969 AIM has the layout for front and rear stripes.

Very cool
334  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: console gauge car or not? on: August 14, 2011, 09:36:50 PM
True Marty it may have had a console but not the gauge package.
Is it true of 67 as it is with 68's that the OIL idiot light bezel was changed to read FUEL?

That may be you only clue left Kelvin that it at one time did have factory gauges.

But then again someone could have added factory gauges after the fact and not changed out the bezel.

What was the status of the original wiring harness?

Try these. Both are 4 speed versions.
One is BW and the other is color.
Both show the torch cutout and the screw positions for the boot and the console bolts.

yeah if I didn't already have one or two printed versions of them kicking around I wouldn't buy one. Of the two copies I have - one is my buddy's who sold his Z years ago so I doubt he will ever need it again - but its printed on green paper and very hard to read.
337  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Z28 on eBay...Real, Correct ? on: July 31, 2011, 05:42:23 PM
yeah I'm no expert but it seems like this was born yesterday.

There is a current thread over at TC on this here was my reply...

If you do purchase a printed AIM at a swap meet thumb trough it as some of the versions out there are a hundred generations copied before your copy was made and some details are impossible to see.

The PDF versions of the 67, 68, 69 70, and 72 I have seen seem to have been scanned from very good low generation paper copies. I have both a paper and PDF 1969 AIM and find that the PDF pages are almost always better quality. But I need the paper in the Garage but sometimes I need to print off the pages from the PDF first LOL

LOL well it is easy if you do take the whole thing apart or at least off the transmission hump and put it on a bench.

Did you check the Hurst site?
341  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Convertible top boot on: July 24, 2011, 07:30:33 PM
I thought there was a chart here someplace that listed the 1969 "rules" for the black verses white vert tops, based on the body color and that the interior color was used on the boot under most circumstances.
342  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Adding console gauges and tach for 69 Camaro on: July 23, 2011, 09:37:37 PM
The readers digest version:
Yes you need both harnesses if your vehicle did not come with factory gauges and tach.

The first harness called the "conversion" harness creates the stub that would have been installed at the factory for the console to plug into. This harness allows you to re-wire features like moving the fuel gauge and transforming the oil and temp idiot lights to gauge senders. You must order the correct conversion.

The second harness is really straight forward and allows the console saw tooth gauge set to connect to the stub you created with the conversion harness in step one.

The third option is not to install a conversion harness, but to replace your entire wiring harness with a full system either factory-fit line from AAW or the classic update.

As for the gauge set itself really the only difference is if they are true reproductions - requiring external filters on the fuel and temp gauges, or internal.

AAW also sells a true replacement VOLTS meter to replace the factory AMPS meter.

Tachs are better calibrated now then factory. Factory and NOS are wicked $$$ for what they are - 40 year old low tech but its your call.

Mark - can you actually hear anything when the top is down?
344  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: LA/Norwood shipping on: July 18, 2011, 01:09:19 PM
Pull a vehicle history report from the federal database. That report will list the first state and date it was titled in and any "brands" such as salvage or total loss that were assigned to that vin since its birth..
345  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Firewall picture on: July 17, 2011, 06:51:08 AM
In the 69 AIM there is an overview of the firewall and marks all the factory holes listed by option if I remember correct.
