Hi everyone!

Hi everyone. Just registered on this awesome Camaro site. Just purchased a 69 RS/SS convertible. My Camaro has a 700R4 transmision and an aftermarket shifter. Would love to bring it back to looking original and want to install a repro console, gauges, and converted horseshoe shfter. I am hoping that I can find some recent or previous forum infomation about this especially the four speed shifter conversion kit and cable required etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards.

Re: Hi everyone!

Welcome...sounds like an awesome car....love to see some pics.

Whenever you get a chance I would like to see how they installed the TV cable on your car.

Re: Hi everyone!

Nice to hear back from you. I tried to upload a photo of the car but had problems. Will try again tomorrow and see if I can get a photo of the TV cable. Cheers.

Re: Hi everyone!

Welcome James! Just go to BowTie Overdrives for conversion parts, then get the original style shifter and cable. Just did mine with a 200r4 and it fit fine.

Ryan, I bought the universal TV cable from BTO and used an old TH350 kickdown bracket that mounted on the rear plug tower intake bolts. Cable was just the right length, but I had to fab a bolt for it to work in one of the pre-existing holes (perfect location!) on the carb. I have not run it yet, but all the angles look good. Nice thing it looks factory, not a lot blinged brackets.

I had a 81 TA I put a 700R4 in before bowtie overdrives was in existence, I could never get the TV geometry right as I was cobbling up S10 TV/throttle cable mounts.

Did you have a tranny shop check the install and pressures once installed?

Re: Hi everyone!

Ryan, This site was very helpful to me to get the angles http://purplesagetradingpost.com/sum...o/700R4p1.html

The guy who rebuilt my trans told me the pressures I need. The pressure guage is hooked up and as soon as I change the pan gasket to fix some leaks and bleed my brakes, I will be doing the pressure tests

Re: Hi everyone!

Thank you all for your thoughts and advice. I really appreciate it. Have just bought my Camaro late last week and am still waiting for it to arrive here. I have attached a photo of it for you to see. Am limited to the number of atachments that I can add. Hopefully my Camaro will arrive tomorrow or Thursday. Sorry it has taken me awhile to reply. Just getting used to the website. Thanks again.
