First, I got the inertia switch attached and working.  Thanks to all  
of you who have responded.  Needless to say, you have saved me hours  
trying to figure it out on my own, and your assistance will be the  
reason that another Monza is moving out of group red and onto the  
streets where it belongs generating interest in Corvairs - and  
perhaps making some converts.
Now, I was looking at the oil shut off from Clarks.  It looks like  
the alternator/oil filler assembly will have to be removed in order  
to install it.  There are no installation instructions included with  
the part.  It only mentions (and includes a diagram) that the  
assembly will allow the original pressure switch to be attached and a  
brief description on how the devise works.

I have spent 10 ten hours just this weekend and 15 hours in the last  
two weeks before -not to mention the countless hours since this all  
started in September, trying to finish this project (wiring harnesses  
replacement, installation of inertia and oil pump shutoff, and  

Sorry for all of the questions, but none of this is to be found in  
the '65 manual.

After this, replace motor mount, oil/filter change, oil pan gasket  
replacement, reattach air filter assembly, and road test.
