My 68 without gauges has that kind of end and button on the sensor.  Where can you get the end that goes over the connector that has the slot in it?
I'm not sure about just the end but my whole harness came from American Auto Wire and it was the Factory Fit type. It's supposed to be identical to factory but my original harness was cut and spliced on this wire so I didn't know this was incorrect until this came up.

The rivet style pin on the sender is for the gauge not the light. I believe the straight pin style is correct but not sure. Someone must have the correct set up on there car. I need a pic. of the boot and sender.

"Straight pin" with no head on it is original and difficult to find.  The "nail head" is what the commonly available service replacement sensors have looked like for years.  That is why all the harnesses have been "modified" with spade clips added over the past 40 years or so.

Looking at their web site, it doesn't appear they have non-gauge senders available for the 1969 V8 cars. Only the 1968 V8 cars (P/N 01993426) with the following note:

TEMPERATURE SENDING UNIT, 6 Cyl., with warning lights (1/2 x 14 P.T.F.) Note: Requires a 56 series female connection

For "Idiot" light it is listed under switch not a sender...
From LectricLimited catalog for a 1969 Camaro....model numbers match the picture posted by Jim
Part - description
01993426-TEMPERATURE SENDING UNIT, 6 Cyl., with warning lights (1/2 x 14 P.T.F.) Note: Requires a 56 series female connection
Warning lights use the 56 series connector...

01513462-TEMPERATURE SENDING UNIT, with factory gauges (correct resistance and connection, produces accurate gauge display)
Uses the single pin.

I have seen guys convert and use the same temp lead and just change the connector.

Only the 01513462 matches the picture and that's for cars WITH gauges as I noted above. The 1968 V8 without gauges part number (1993426) isn't shown in their catalog, nor is the 1969 V8 without gauges part number (1993369). However, Heartbeat City shows the 1969 V8 without gauges (part number 1993369) with the same basic note, but additionally

Originally these senders had the pin style connector, however, currently they are only available with the slider style connector.

I bought an original for my 68 without gauges and it looks like the 321 picture.

My 69 original Z without gauges also has the 321 style. I don't think it has ever been changed, the lead wire going to the connector still has the felt fabric sleeve on it.

Can anyone else confiirm that a 69 Z without gauges uses the 321 style requiring the female spade terminal with the slotted cover?

If so, have the correct terminal, correct sender, but need to know where I can find the correct slotted terminal cover.  Guess I can make one if I have to out of a "regular" cover.

Lynn I saw a thread the other day where somebody found just a pig tail with the correct end on it. It was long enough you could splice up high enough to hide it in the wiring loom. In the mean time I search and you can too so maybe one of us will find it.

Daniel:

Yes you can buy the pig tails.  However, since I already have a bag of 56 series terminals and I need two of the slotted connectors (the one for my key buzzer wire is mia and it is the same slotted connector) I found those, and am buying 10.  If you need one, i will mail it to you.

Also, I am buying 10 feet of the heat insulation.  Should be enough to do 3 cars.  Anyone need that, let me know.

This car that doesn't have console gauges, (I am curious since mine doesn't either) what other factory options did it come with ? If you don't have any paperwork with it and are not sure thats ok. I do have the paper work for mine and since mine is a 08C of 1969 car it had the factory Tach and center fuel gauge as well as the spoiler package standard. The original owner special ordered it with the ZL-2 hood, tinted windows, AM radio, and basic interior decor group which had the stainless trim around the pedals and wood grin on the dash. He also specified the M-21.

I know a lot of guys who restore these cars automatically put the cowl hood on and console gauges, it sounded like you are trying to keep it stock, so thats why I asked. Thank you
