Ed, it's been a long time and I can't remember which side but it was about half way down from the top. I recently sold a rebuilt pump and all I have left is the one in my car and one other that has thicker paint and some surface rust. I'll try to clean that one up tomorrow and see what I find. I will also try to find it on the one in my car but that might be tough.

I have a 6-cylinder pump off a 69 Nova I can look at tomorrow.

I have had a few of these pumps and most had a date code stamped in the housing. Sometimes it's faint. I can't remember what the format was. I'll look for some old notes.

Rebuilding them is easy, just remove a couple bolts and replace some rubber gaskets.

I'm not a legends judge but the 68's I found in yards years ago had the 293 BR coil. And the 69's in the yards had 293 B-R.

I used Mobil 1 Synthetic Universal Grease when I rebuilt mine. It's rated to 450F.

No, I've never looked for a 793 so I don't know how difficult it is to find one.

The one for my car is a 3857042.

The upper left bracket on the top photo is 6 cylinder lower alternator bracket. The upper right bracket on the top photo is short water pump small block V8 lower alternator bracket (i.e 67-68).

The lower steel brackets in the top photo look like brackets used when you install headers.

Jeff, what is your carburetor part number? I have a couple 68 parts carbs here if it's a 68.

I was lucky to find the correct fan spacer for my 68 L35 at a swap meet years ago. Not an easy piece to find.

Yes, you're correct, those engines don't use fixed fans and therefore don't use a fan spacer.

According to the Assembly Manual, 3927792 is correct for V8s. What is the length of your spacer? The '792 is 1 inch long.

I think what John meant was they used an engine coded for a Powerglide car, not a manual trans car.

I have an original hose and diverter valve if you're interested. Send me an email.

The 5 blade fans I have taken off 68 full size cars had 4 flat rivets.

44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: what is the correct type of oil filler tube cap ? "S rivet" or "engine oil fill" on: June 30, 2010, 07:09:45 PM
I took one off a 68 Chevelle 2-BBL engine built in Tonawanda years ago. It was stamped ENGINE OIL FILL AC-FC60.

Hope this helps.
