Would a 1969 L78 Camaro  with M20 and 410 rear come with a gear reduction unit? If so what is the part number?

Yes, the part number is 6476736, stamped 1:.777, 6476736. This speedo adapter is extremely hard to find. I have only seen two for sale on Ebay and both had sold for more than $700.00.

I found  a reducer with # 6476735 (1: .824). Would that work for my application?

410 4spd cars with 14 inch wheels received speedo reducer.

Interesting to note that cars equipped with 15" wheels such as Z28's and 9737  (sports car conversion) did not.  The use of the reducer involved a couple of variables such as tire size and transmission shaft/speedo gear as well.

It depends on the trans version the car received. If I recall the details correctly, the 4.10 could use either of two M20's (shown in the AIM). One was for the deeper gears and one was for the normal gear range. One required the use of the adaptor, one didn't. Which trans was used depended on availability in the plant.

I've definitely seen original 4.10 M20 cars without the adaptor.

Another isssue that comes into play is the drive gear on the main shaft.  There are two, 8 and 9 tooth.  In my 35+ years of rebuilding Muncies, I have seen both used for the same model year application.

I agree with you and Kurt regarding the use of the reducer "The use of the reducer involved a couple of variables such as tire size and transmission shaft/speedo gear as well." (driven/drive gears)

The transmission drive gears you mention 8&9 tooth, was 16 also used?

I have a listing of reducers which shows it was possible to have one on a 373 gear car as well. Have you seen any used on any 15" wheel applications such as z28's and Yenkos?


BTW everyone have a safe and happy New Year

Yup, that's actually the same issue. Those are the two different part #'s the AIM shows.

Steve, I'll have to look into the 15" wheel question.

I believe I answered my own question "The transmission drive gears you mention 8&9 tooth, was 16 also used? "

The 16 tooth drive gear was used in the Turbo Hydramatic application.

Steve,

That's correct.  8 and 9 are for 4-spd.  Also remember that the speedometer could be re-calibrated w/o use of the reduction unit by using a different driven gear ranging from 23 to 25 teeth.  All of of the oriignal 3.73 rear Z28 transmissions that I've rebuilt over the years usually have the black 23 tooth driven gear.

My original '69 Z/28, built with M21 and a 4.10 axle, had no reducer and a 25-tooth driven gear.

The 25 tooth gears are orange in color.

My car did come with the 14's, and L78/M20/410, just to recap what combination(s) of the following would it have from the factory?
1)Drive gear teeth?
2)Driven gear teeth?
3)Speedo adapter Part#?

The key is transmission drive gear teeth. If your transmission has a 8 tooth drive gear the following should work for
4.10 Rear Axle,  F70-14 Tires, 8 tooth Drive Gear (P/N 3924098), 20 tooth Driven Gear (P/N 3860343),  Adapter P/N 6476736. This is good for 3 or 4 speed transmission.

Thanks, would you know what the combination is for the #6476735 adapter as I don't have the other adapter.

I believe 22 tooth Driven Gear will work with that adapter.

And I think that with an 9 tooth drive gear, the car doesn't neet the adapter at all (like John's car).

That would be my guess as well. I don't have any data on 9 tooth drive gears utilizing a reducer. Each transmissions has a part# tag that designated its build configuration. If 9 tooth drive gear transmissions did not need adapter/reducer in high numerical gear applications then why wouldn't they install transmissions configured as such based on the part# tag. Assuming that the pn tag/brass tag in fact provided a configuration/BOM for the trans.

My original VIN-stamped M21, dated P9B17B, has the steel tag embossed 3946798, as shown in the A.I.M. in M20, Sheet A1 for use with M21 and Z28 or L-78.

Reguarding the 15 inch tire issue. I have a 67 Z with 4:56 and it does have the transmission speedometer adapter.

Finally finished moving and was able to dig out my books. That P/N "appears" to be for a 1970's car, so it's not correct for a 1st gen Camaro. Most of the 67-69 Camaro adapters are 6476xxx numbers.
