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

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  ;D  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?

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?  :)    Curiousity killed the cat you know..  :)   but if it killed humans, I'd have been dead by age 12.. :)

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.

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....   :(

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.
