Starter with the bolts in line will take a 153 tooth flexplate/flywheel - small.
Starter with staggered bolts will take a 168 tooth flexplate/flywheel - large.
Don't forget to install the starter front brace, it will save the nose from breaking.

Your Dad ought to be proud. Nice looking Camaro. Congrats on the buy.
63  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: VIN on a Powerglide on: October 07, 2012, 12:10:18 PM
Most Powerglides had the VIN stamped on the pass side pan, I believe.

Could the top wheel have been sanded/ground about the stamping area - see the detail?
Are most OE wheels stamped like Marty's wheel, meaning , do you read the letters from the hub or from the rim?
Also, it looks like Marty's wheel, the stamped characters follow the circular pattern and randomly stamped where the ebay wheel the whole stamp is flatlined.

Mike, yours is not an OE flexplate, should look more like Steve's flexplate.
At this point, I would try another t/conv and/or flexplate just for giggles.

What have you done in troubleshooting the problem?
I suggest taking a singular 200 to 400 ohm resistor, any value in between, and attach one lead to engine ground, the other lead to the green wire going to the gauge without the sensor and view the indication.
If rock solid indication, then bad sensor.
If the indication still varies, move resistor to the gauge itself and disconnect the green wire and connect the resistor.
If gauge indication is solid, check the green wire for chaffing to body ground and firewall connector for good connection.
If indication still varies, bad gauge, or bad ground on gauge itself, or intermittent power to gauge.
The problem may not be power as you did not say any problems with the other gauges as each gauge power comes from one wire in the console harness.
Could be a bad crimp in the power wire for the gauge, depends upon how the harness was made.
Unless I'm missing something here.

All flexplates are the same except the 400CID, whether 153 tooth or 168 tooth.
Could flexplate be installed backwards?
As long as the button fits into the crankshaft and flexplate is within 1/16 inch , should be good to go unless t/conv has to be slide out from the trans which might disengage the body from the oil pump.
68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67' without console automatic floor shift ? on: September 09, 2012, 04:10:38 PM
Nice looking Camaro, but '67's did not come with spoilers did they?
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: '69 horn wiring on: September 03, 2012, 08:31:01 AM
Is the spring too big to fit into the hole?
I would imagine the contact fits into the hole above the spring and twist & lock into place?
70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Dumb questions about interior rear side panels... on: August 27, 2012, 08:32:46 PM
Nope, just the window crank handle and rear seat hold in the side panel.
I installed an stainless steel #10 oval head screw with a finishing washer in the lower corner to secure the panel.
Seat cushion covered it up.
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Interior Lights on: August 20, 2012, 08:16:05 PM
With the light(s) getting alitttle dimmer with CCW rotation of the headlamp switch, suggests the white wire is grounded in the light circuit.
Could be the crossover wire from pass switch to drvr switch, dome light, console wiring, or under dash lights.
Door switches can be unscrewed with a 7/16 inch wrench.
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: DSE solid subframe mounts - stock bolts too short ! on: August 20, 2012, 08:05:54 PM
I used Moroso's bushing kit, only has the upper bushings, six each, and used stock bolts and washers and had no problem.
As said, tighter feel, especially with frame connectors.
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Starter clicking before start on: August 14, 2012, 08:13:04 AM
Good suggestions given and battery charge is the key.
So is the starter brace.
Also, cable gauge also, min 1 GA cable vice 4 GA.

It reads like the solenoid on top of the starter either needs replacement with an AC/Delco unit,
or the present one torn apart and the washer turned 90°and copper studs turned 180°, then reinstalled.

Is the female half of the bucket missing, or am I not seeing it?

X2, who knows what the story is??
Speaking of Baby Boomers, 'The Shadow' knows......
