Gary;
 My car had the same issue, intake vacuum leak at idle and sucking oil bottom of runner, had the machinist take some more off the intake runners and rails .
I used the Felpro 1256 intake gasket it was the correct size for my 472 intake runners. I also used the Intake Manifold Gasket Alignment Tool posted over at Camaros.net
and used only silicone at front and rear runners. Leak free and vacuum now is up to 8~9 in hg. at idle. That is with the rockers at .030" lash.   
My idle is a lot better now I have it set at 1050 rpm. When it gets summer again I'll adjust it lower to see if it will hold a lower rpm. Plug check now shows no fouling and a good tune.

I guess I 'd ask the basic question, why are you performing a compression test? Having rebuilt my 302, I have never checked compression. I've been busy reading plugs and lashing for best tune vacuum.

The Camaro on the cover Joe Oldhams "Supertuning your Z-28 Camaro" appears to be that color.
Need to find a link.

I used these guys and they are honest and professional, and they honed cleaned my original 302 block.
L&R Sante Fe Springs excellent guys!

I have a Centerforce II in my 69 Z 3:73 and it hooks fine, no heavy pedal pressure.
I would use one again.

Gary;
 One other question what did you use for an engine cradle when you loaded your bellhousing.
All the ones I've looked at support the back at the bellhousing flange a few are oil pan rail supported.

 Which clutch are you using?
I'm using the Centerforce II and Centerforce thowout bearing.
Very good quality stuff.

Gary;
 Did you finish alignment?
How much was the tool from Browell?
I need to check mine.

Tuned my 302 per Johns instructions on 91 octane California gas.
As long as you don't get carried away on advance and curve that sucker,
it'll sing like only a 302 can. Warning it's actually fun to learn to tune them
just time consuming. The key is get the right tools and mapping the curve! 
My car runs great no hesitation and no ping!
It's just plain old fun to drive it when its tuned right and pump gas works, mixing gas
and such is a Hassle.

Awesome job!
That sucker should last forever. Plus looks original, from the outside.

William;
 Guess I'll need to send some pic's, but everything fits and functions correctly.
Non-interlock mount will fits tight on frame bracket.
No #5 spark plug issue. (non-ps car so ?)
and the balancer clears the sway bar with room to spare.
Weird

73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 69 Z/28 engine stands on: April 10, 2006, 09:55:40 PM
While restoring the 69 Z I replaced the motor mounts with units from Year One. After sending back the 69 Z mounts and calling the tech line/service
I was told some of the early cars had 68 Z/BB mounts, maybe until newer version release or supply was used up? Can any of you early 69 guys confirm? My 69 is a 68 built 10E car. Anyhow I have looked at the mounts a few times and
wonder why 68 style? The 68's are wider tower with engine mount containing spacers welded on right? I seem to remember the 69 style motor mount being too narrow to fit the wider 68 style tower? Also I'm pretty darn sure these towers are original, they looked like the original hardware had not been removed when I pulled the engine out.
 
 Next question; Do the modern style engine mounts I purchased contain a built in rubber isolater stop-lift fastening device?
By this I'm talking about the engine lift brackets I see on e-pay all the time. Seems in the first gen cars the mounts would break loose
and the accelerator would fully engage with disasterous results.
I'm pretty sure some of the newer design non-original mounts I've seen have a metal tab retainer built in them to provide break-away engine retainment.
Do the newer original style mounts incorporate a fastening device engineered through them to prevent this problem right?
Why is everyone insistant on providing stop-lift brackets on a restored car? Is it for motor mount retainment on original restored cars?
I'm a little worried if mine might not come loose at some point. If they aren't for retainment then why?
If these parts would be correct then why shouldn't every TSB part be installed for us anal-retentive correct guys?
Was this a major recall or just a TSB.

Don't tell John Pirkle!
I had mine restored by him and it's a top-flight job!
I have an extra one of the solid state units, no moving parts.
Here's an idea sell a solid state with an original lid and base!
My restored unit works great just a little more pricey than a $20.00
unit from Auto-Zone.
