I recently purchased a '69 RS 350 and am working on learning as much as I can about 1st Gen.s. My question: where is the sending unit/switch located on a '69 Camaro with a Muncie M-21 4-speed? (As for now, the lights are there without knowing where the/any wiring goes!)
Thanks for your help!

In my 68 Camaro 4 speeds, the switch is located in the transmission and is actuated by the shift levers. Is externally mounted with a metal support.

Great question. I have a '67 with a Borg Warner T-10D (improper). I can't find anything on it either. Is it supposed to have an external switch as well? I can't even find any wiring for it anywhere in the transmission tunnel.

I just had to rig one up. The trany (4-speed Muncie) had a TCI (timing control thing) and I thought it was the back up switch but only had 1 terminal on the switch. I ended up making an L bracket and putting a switch on it and wired it into the circuit. Had to do it this way, I needed to pass a vehicle inspection for a salvaged title.

'69's had an "interlock" from the steering column to the trans so when the key was removed and the trans in rev, the column was locked and the trans was as well. Soooo the switch is at the bottom of the steering column with 3 (Ithink) wires to it.
Also think that Hurst has a small switch that will mount on the trans that's activated by the reverse rods.
I removed the "interlock" rods so now have no backup lights. Considering the Hurst switch at trans. Any other ideas?
