My fault. I thought I wrote maybe I'd sell. I reread and modified it. Sorry for the problem. Jim

Thanks John as I agree with you as mine is also black Primer which tells all of us that most all the ones for sale have the wrong zinc back plates. Then again one could always paint the zinc flat black!  Tkx again. Jim

4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 Bowtie question on: January 19, 2015, 07:47:01 AM
Today I found this in one of my boxes. I removed it from my 69 Camaro in early 1970 as I wanted to paint my grill flat black with no Bowtie. I notice on all the ones for sale they all show the backer plate in raw zinc plating. This is a factory original and the back has a factory flat black finish on it and I know mine is correct as I removed it from the car myself back then and has remained in a box ever since.
That all said, what do you guys think? I also notice my 2 part numbers are 3949705 and the assy # is 3943219 and I see supposedly NOS bowties on ebay in the boxes and they do not have this number?

I asked this question with a picture today because I thought it was informative and now the post is gone? What gives?

6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Speedo gear reduction on: November 26, 2014, 01:14:37 PM
I know I am late to the party but what I did was get 3 or 4 different color (teeth count) speedo gears then I used my GPS to get my actual MPH and Id change until I got to the correct speed on the GPS and if the speedometer is off a bit after that, just make a note of how far off one way or the other for you record.
I started by counting the teeth and then ordering the gear I thought Id need and this took way too long as the gears are not that expensive. It def saved me a ton of time. I got some gears off ebay the others at a GN dealer.

Everett. I pulled the grey wire plug moved it and now all is right with the world!~ Tkx Jim
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: console gauge lights on: January 16, 2014, 11:52:33 PM
Thanks for the input, I thought that's where I had it plugged. Ill ck it out tomorrow as I prefer the bulbs on only when dash is on. With the copper line I ran to my oil press gauge its a lot of work to take apart the console to replace bulbs. Tkx jim
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / console gauge lights on: January 16, 2014, 05:09:54 PM
I have installed the gauge tach set and everything works as it should. That said I noticed today that the console gauge lights are on when every the car is running, is that correct? I thought the lights would only be on when you pulled out the light switch?

KERR my 69 was born as a column shift 350 and they removed the switch and associated parts but left the gear selector arm on the column on the engine side where it's really hard to see. They must have used a sleeve to cover the column where the shifter was. I had the car 5 months before I even knew that. That's an easy and inexpensive repair. Jim
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 back up switch muncie using 68 parts on: January 06, 2014, 05:56:57 PM
Completed the back up switch today. I took the main harness apart under the dash and found the correct pink and green wires. Then I made a long test wire and checked for continuity 1st.  I used the 68 switch kit and harness extension. The kit wires are light green and dark green. I made plugs and plugged in the light green and Pink and tried the switch and it worked. I didn't know if that was the correct combo or not so I reversed the wires and the switch worked so I does not matter which goes where. Attached is my pic of the switch. My reverse lever has a 3/16" thick steel plate for multi use and that was on the car so what I needed to do was drill a small hole to attach the switch arm so it closed properly. I have made use of one of the holes in the steel previously but it didn't have enough "throw" to make the switch work, now it does and all is well. Thanks for all the advice as usual this is a very informative and helpful forum.
