Well how about that! I thought I was the only one that was missing that section.  Grin

Thanks for the '69 section 5. I'll keep it with my '68 Service Manual and until someone else comes up with section 5 for the '68 version.

Thanks again!

FWIW, here's the sheet out of the 67 chassis repair manual.  Put it with the 69 spec sheet and maybe they'll have a baby  Grin  The specs for turning front discs is found in Section 5, page 5-29 of the 67 manual.

I don't believe the '68 Chassis Service Manual has a section 5 in the specifications section.  My mint '68 Chassis Service Manual (copyright 1967) doesn't have it.  I checked my '69 Chassis Service Manual (copyright 1968) and it does have a section 5.  One thing I noticed is, if you look at Gary's photo of the '69 section 5 page (reply #14), you'll see Section 5 is in parentheses while none of the other sections are!  Why?
Huh

Paul,
I ordered my manuals from Helm in 1976 after purchase of my car.  It also is copyrighted 1968. Are you saying that your Section 5 in your spec section is not in parenthesis?  or it is?  Smiley    Curiousity killed the cat you know..  Smiley   but if it killed humans, I'd have been dead by age 12.. Smiley

Gary, my service manual is the same as yours... (SECTION 5).  I just referenced your photo so other members could see what I was saying.  There must be a reason for the parentheses.

Well how about that! I thought I was the only one that was missing that section.  Grin

Thanks for the '69 section 5. I'll keep it with my '68 Service Manual and until someone else comes up with section 5 for the '68 version.

Mine was in an old brown '50 Ford tudor (my dad's hunting/fishing car) that was parked against a shed over his boat..  I was just TOO curious not to push that little round chrome button while 'pretending' to drive it.. and I got more than I bargained for, both when the car jumped forward against one of the supports for the shed, and a second time when dad got home....   Sad

Is your service manual dated?

No section 5 spec page in service manual specification section. Page 5-21 contains the information you're looking for.......0.060 is max.
