I know this thread is old, but here's some pictures of my early '68 zinc anodes.

I bought a set from Rick's before the buyout. They are identical to the originals they replaced.  ;D

Original manual transmission cars had a stamped hole that left a "lip" approximately 1/8" wide that was directed downward for rigidity.

I had the same problem with the length of the rod also, too long. I just bent it to fit. It works fine, just doesn't fit like an original one.

Jerry is right about using the EOS. I'm using the crane version. The first one I didn't use EOS & the cam went flat right away. BTW the crane version seems to make lots of power :)

Does anyone know of a place that can rebuild the original GM vacuum actuators for the headlight doors. I have a pair of repops that the hose nipples are not positioned the same as the orignals. I was able to get the right one to work without any modifications. I had to cut the nipple on the rod end of the cannister back until it was straight for hose routing reasons. I tried to bend it to the correct angle but the cannister body started to deform. Also, does anyone know why the reproduction industry can't take an original part and copy it to the right dimensions? It seams that more often than not the repops are never fit like the originals, only close ???
