Title: 1969 L78 Fuel line brass block with hold down bracket attached
Post by: Driveway_finds on March 14, 2022, 01:52:19 AM
When was the brass block with the bracket that attaches to the intake manifold used? Is there an early vs late difference? Thank you!

The fuel line support bracket was used on Holley equipped cars after June, 1969. Legends is leaning towards the fuel line block being painted silver

Looks like that one might be from a 1970? The bracket on a 1969 is attached to the brass block itself.

I'm not sure why the supplier or GM would apply paint to a brass block.  Extra cost for what purpose?  The pic on the post above doesn't look like it's been painted.  I assume the Legends guys have unrestored examples that show the silver paint finish?

It does look like the right line. I donít see any evidence of sliver on that one.

The non attached blocks are blackened.
Not paint not coated it is a forced oxidation.
Here is the one off of Dave Beem's Yenko 01B - Bill Hunter removed all of the smog and carb fuel pump within the first month of owning the car, this was one of the totes.
