I found an old pic of a 69 with 307 V8 showing the a/c hoses and the insulators and ties but I have no clue what the build date was but since its a 307 it had to be later in the build year when it came out.

Found my pic from when the new hose setup arrived... you can see the canister build is way off from the original one. The crimps are not at all like original either.

Another pic of my layout after I bought all new hoses and the alum. block and canister that connects to the side of the compressor.. I bought them all from 'oldairproducts' in Texas. I had issues with the fit of the canister where it bolts to the compressor, it was built with a 'throw' way to long to reach the bolt hole in the compressor. I had to use a long sleeve and adapt...grrr... then the take of from the canister turned toward the fender instead of 'down' so that put another bend in the hose to get it to where it belongs.
 I didnt use the grommet in the pass. side fender either, the hose was to large for it, so I just routed it where it fit.

Im guessing that early built 69's had carry over 68 parts like Mark said.. my car is 10D build in LA, an LM1. Just fyi if anyone can connect the dots on when they went to the plastic strap. I will have to look at that steel ring again and see if it is an upside down 19 but I dont think it is... love a mystery. :)

Just to add to the discussion, the clamp that holds down my hose and insulator to the alternator bracket has the letters " GI " on it. Not sure what that means but here is a pic...

also, not sure if all 69's had this hole and guide for the dryer in the pan below the battery but mine did...

Now if SF just offered "agreed Value" coverage similar to that offered by Hagerty and others... they might get some business. They vary their coverage state by state. They need to be consistent across state lines.

Kevin, Im in and out of there all day long, never a problem,,, think its something else, maybe in your yahoo or some lingering cookie or who knows these days...but my Norton and AVG are both clean, no issues, no hits. I will report it to the back room in TC  just in case... but keep checking.

 Here is photo of my setup after its all done... the heat riser works the choke nicely in our cooler climate here in Minnesota.

 I bought this cast iron intake to replace alum. edelbrock as I wanted to have it more original. It came from the seller with the holes welded shut.  Just FYI

IZRSSS Marty, just to clarify... the CRG report on 69 LM1 engines does say "LM1's have been found with both 2-bolt and 4-bolt blocks, though it appears that most were 2-bolt blocks"  I have one of the 4 bolt LM1's myself, its also a 3932388 block and my heads are  3932441   J-11-8 and J-15-8 , mine also has disc brakes,   they are an interesting combo :)

 Earlier in this thread, Kurt mentioned that the LM1 did not have the return line. I think he might be mistaken on that one. My LM1 with Qjet has the return line. Maybe Kurt will clarify for us.
