Correct.  Also, your oil pressure gauge line should have it's own hole and rubber grommet.

Jerry, what '69 powertrain combination had that backup lights plug/grommet in the firewall? I know 4-speeds had the backup light switch inside the car, on top of the steering column, with no external wiring.

I don't know about the 67 AIM, but in the 68 one its page 323 and section M20 anyway.  I got a repro one at Rick's.  I don't know if that's the right one for yours though.

John,

The back-up plug in the firewall is a 67 and 68 thing.  The plug in the firewall mates with a wiring harness that plugs into it, and the other end goes to a bracket and switch mounted on the transmission side cover.  The switch is part of the harness.
