70-81 4 Speed Reverse Lockout Rod

Hey guys, I'm just finishing up the restoration on my 1981 Camaro Z28, 350 L-81 Corvette motor, Saginaw no ring 4 speed... I have everything hooked up and she's running great, but I don't have the lower reverse lockout rod that runs from the lower point of the reverse transmission arm to the reverse lockout linkage on the frame... Being a Saginaw transmission, I'll need one from an older model, probably 70-77 as some of them were stock with the Saginaws... Does anyone know what length that rod is, part numbers, maybe have one lying around that you could live without?...lol It sure would be nice to finish up this awesome ride with some working reverse lights...hahahahaha

Sweet, I will check into those part numbers and see what I can find out... Anyone have any idea how long the rod is?... Muncie's should of course be longer since the reverse lever is further back on the tranny, yes?...

Some of these rods have a partial part # stamped into them.
Example : Part # 3975603 would have 5603 stamped on it.
