I found a recessed plug in the intake that was covered by a hose. I removed that plug, it was the exact size and I installed the correct sensor. I ran a temporary wire, ran the engine awhile and all seems well. I ran a permanent wire, enclosed same and now all is well! Thanks for all the advise and now off to sort out a rear back up light situation! Jim

I did the side mounts to the new 69 Camaro I bought in 69! The insulated covers do not get hot. This 350 has Dart heads, Headman shorty headers and a short curve to the side 2.5" exhaust. It has plenty of power and torque. It is very loud and that's what I wanted. I have not been to car show of sorts in over 20 yrs. I have a 76 Rolls I drive and that I have won many national awards. I don't even own a trailer as I drive all my cars as often as I can. After 8 months I am still sorting this one out but down to the thermostate sender which I think I solved and hope to do today and the back up light switch which I have from a 68 Camaro and need to install and find the proper wires to hook up. I still have a front right brake problem which locks up from time to time. I have changed the lines and hoses but will work on the calipers next.

Everett and L78, the temp end on my sensor is 1/2" and it had the threaded top and its the OE that came in the kit but the thread is too big as you stated. I have checked other forums before I wrote the original post and someone stated that the GM6400759 is the console gauge sensor possibley thats smaller? Tomorrow I will ck the pipe size with my threaders. If I do not have the correct size sensor maybe the the GM part has a a smaller dia? It seems though that my options are remove the head and make the hole bigger because its easier then trying to do that with such close clearance or drill and tap the intake near the thermostate? Best Ideas please?
L78 can you show me a pic of where exactly to tap the intake? my intake is aluminum.

I recently finished my console gauges and tested everything and I thought it was all fine until I went for a drive today. The sensor that came with the console kit was too large a dia appox 3/4 dia thread and appox 1-3/4" long overall not including to top screw. The hole in my Dart Head was appox 1/2" or 5/8" dia and appox 1" long so I installed a stock GM 350 sensor. That all said once I drove appox 1mi the sensor went to red hot and I pulled over and the radiator was still cold!
First question is: Is there a difference in these sensors?
2nd If there is ,Can I use a brass adapter from 5/8 to 3/4 to make it work if I do it will be protruding outside the block.
3rd Or can I get the proper sensor with the 5/8" thread and if so where?
Thanks Happy New year to all!  Jim F

Thanks. I bought this car in April as a 95% finished car. I now have had over 95% apart and redone.  The engine was suppose to have less then 400 mi on and when I tore it apart it was surgically clean but the bearings looked like they had 200K on them. The good news is now everything is either new or rebuilt. Jim

I tried several adhesives and operated the window and they would move. Id clean them and start again. I settled on the same adhesive used to install windshields. Filled the gap, pressed on tight let dry 2 days then used a single edge razor to scrap off excess off the glass and there on forever! I actually saved my severly scratched 1/4 glass as it was original and I used a 3" felt pad and a special powder and spent hours removing most scratches. There still slightly noticeable but Its not a show car. Good Luck. Jim

Headman shortys fit perfect and 2 stock bends welded in fit my new 2'5" 67 Vette pipes and just needed to bend the covers slightly to make it all work. Sound awsome now!

69 Z I bought the entire kit from "Ground Up" and It will be my final project. I'm still waiting for my trunk harness to get here. Today I did all the upholstery and tomorrow Ill assemble rear seats with new belts then off to my lift for the rear light switch work, Ill keep you posted. I stll  have not found the green wire under the dash but I did find the pink power wire and a cut off yellow that I'm not sure about. Any Ideas on the yellow? Its connected by the pink wire in the harness Im hoping they are the original wires for the column back up switch.

68Z I think you might be right as mine was already a tube type pressure unit before I copper plumbed it to my new console gauge!  Thanks

Today I installed the washer pump, hoses and bottle and all worked. Yea! The question is what is the wire on the right side of the wiper pump with the rubber cap end? I believe its a blue wire.][URL=http://s196.photobucket.com/user/rufcar/media/washerpumpsmallerpic.jpg.html][/url]

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 69 back up switch muncie using 68 parts on: December 24, 2013, 11:02:42 AM
Can some one show me the assembly pin or drawing of how the 67-68 parts mount onto a 69 tranny for back up lights? The only pic I have is for hook up to the column and and have zero of those parts in my car and I have headers. So I decided to use the 67-68 assembly and wire it in vs using the Hurst set up. I just need a pic or 67-68 spec assembly page to show how it all looks and where it all goes. I got the parts from Ground up. Thanks and Happy Holidays to all!  Jim
