You can isolate the headlight switch, manual valve and the actuators of a 69 following this posting

Entire thread here:

And here also: A post on 68 and my posting on the difference in 69 of the hose order. It has a picture of the switch hose order and the page from the 69 AIM. Don't yet know how to post pics here.

Good to hear they did right by you.

Mike - don't think so as I assume your gauge in the console is using the same ground as the low fuel monitor is.
But the low fuel monitor should be getting the same oms from the tank sender and report the same levels as the gauge.

That's why it is important to test the gauge, the tank sender, and the low fuel monitor. If you get 45ohms (1/2 a tank) at the sender, and the gauge and you test the monitor and get less then 45 the wiring or the monitor itself would be suspect.  Your base line test of the sender lead in the trunk will be the only standard, assuming you KNOW how much fuel is really in the tank.  

Here is a troubleshooting I wrote over on TC see if that helps you run the tests.

I would check the ohms at the gauge and then at the low fuel module to make sure they are the same reading.
365  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Decals and stickers on Air Cleaners? on: June 29, 2011, 09:23:52 AM
No the decals are original factory fitted items.
Each engine option had a correct decal based on its family (L6 or V8)
and its rated horsepower.  i.e. Turbo-Thrift, Turbo-Fire, Turbo-Jet with crossed flags on big block 396 engines, etc.

I think if I remember correct most if not all the small block V8's were Turbo-Fire,
Big Blocks were Turbo-Jets, and the L6 was the Turbo Thrift but I'm not 100% sure.

You can answer your own question by doing the following search on this site...  thegmparts



Hey Paul all I get in a search is this thread. What did you find?

Wow I like the color very much.

Easy direction come with the AAW Factory Fit brand harness.

No69x-44 - What is the issue you are having with fuel gauge? 
And I thought you said you fixed the issue in number one.

370  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Converting to Console Gauges and Factory Tach: which wiring? on: June 14, 2011, 03:58:07 PM
The "conversion" harness gets you the stub that would have been installed at the factory.

Once the conversion harness is there you use the console harness to connect that console gauge package to the conversion.

In my buddy's 69 RS the two harnesses had everything to connect the gauges except the oil pressure line. In fact he thought he would need the tach harness, but that was already included in the harness.

Great directions that came with the harnesses and the website had all the details on which console harness to get and why he needed the conversion.  

You will need to swap out the temp idiot light switch from the block for the correct gauge sender unit, again wiring in the harness already. Think he had to order that gauge sender when he purchased the gauge cluster.

Fuel sender stays the same.

In 68 and 69 console gauge sets the Oil pressure switch gets ditched for the oil line. Make sure you get a quality line and has correct brass fittings otherwise oil will flow nicely into the cockpit or all over the back of the engine. I don't know if 67 is mechanical or electric but someone here will know and drop in.

Double check tach requirements and hookups if you have installed aftermarket ignition/distributor setup. Factory tach is not happy without special filters in those setups. Factory setup work like a champ out of the box using the harness instructions.

Ammeter will work on these harnesses, unless you purchased a volt meter conversion gauge. I know AAW / make one for the 68/69 "saw-tooth" style gauges - don't know about 67's gauges. for 68/69 there is a conversion harness included with the volt meter gauge.  And they sell amp to volt conversion harnesses for aftermarket so cruise the website.

Was a fun project but took two days - could have been done in one - he had distractions left and right. Don't think a 67 would be much different.

Reserve not met. I wonder why? Smiley

Kurt - on your MS-office CD there are a set of Outlook tools. You may have already installed them on the computer so search for Scanpst.exe. This is the mailbox (personal folders) repair tool. It has saved my large Outlook 2002 pst files more then once.
373  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: '68 SS Console temp gauge not working on: June 09, 2011, 12:38:26 PM
Are you sure the sender is correct one?
Bench test it.
You can remove it from the block, ground it with a test lead, and place in a pan of boiling water with a thermometer like you would test a coolant thermostat.
Then check its output with the gauge or multimeter.

It maybe an idiot light sender which I think if not mistaken only goes live at a particular temp, where a gauge sender sends a range out from cold to hot.
