R45TS are tapered seat plugs, don't use them unless you're using 70's heads with tapered plug seats. Your 69 "186" heads should use washer sealed plugs with 13/16" hex. As Everett said, AC R44, R45. Some Z28 guys are using Autolites with good results. Don't use platinum plugs.

Looks a lot like my 68 AND guaranteed for life!! I'll take it. :)

How many VIN digits are off? Just one, like a typo?
Probably wouldn't have gotten another car's engine from the factory.

2B, welcome to CRG! Enjoy your X44 until you figure out what your ideal car is and the level of project you're ready for. Keep driving it until you find what you want or sell it to have cash to make a deal. Always come back here during your search if you need help identifying something, there's a lot of fraud out there. Good luck!

I'm curious about this thread as well. I've often considered building a JL8 type setup for my 68.
I seem to remember on one of the forums (TC, SYC...) some fellow(s) successfully building rear disc setups that appear "JL8-like" or "SD-like" using combinations of fabricated, aftermarket/repro, and NOS/currently available/original components and being somewhat affordable. I briefly searched but couldn't find the threads.

Hakan, I think I'm wrong. There may not be a hose with a molded curve for 69 BB. I was thinking different year and I should've checked before mentioning, sorry.  :-\

Thanks for the little video! What a pretty machine!!
You may check the next time you need to order parts, I'm pretty sure the correct molded bypass hose (between the intake and water pump) is still available so you won't have to live with that kinked piece of straight hose.  ;) 
Great work and thanks for sharing!!

Really, really cool. Great thread. Love the red interior.
68Z's are popping up everywhere.

No mention of the 307 or L78 either, among others.

This year I'd like to do some things to my 68. Rebuild the steering column, Swap out the junk IROC steering gear for an original, and hopefully upgrade the old Edelbrock EFI controller to something more modern. If I could just get this stupid house remodel project done!!

Hood insulation was included w/SS or custom interior, I believe.

Saw this one posted over at Neat car and the ad has a "link" to a lot of pics showing some dates and details.
