Thanks guys. And thanks for the help in pulling it together.

I still have one issue that I haven't been able to document:
"67 and 68 V8 pumps were either mounted high on the engine, in front of the intake manifold / carburetor (see 68 diagram), or mounted on the passenger side of the engine."
I could not find any documentation to confirm the latter part of that statement. Reportedly at least one original 68 LF7/M15 was found like that. The person no longer owns the car so no way to verify it. But has anyone else heard of this mounting location? Perhaps I should have caveated that statement more.

The carb usage was out of the scope of the article. I think the applications are addressed in CBTN.
The CCS carbs had an internal provision to more accurately control part throttle A/F ratios. AIR carbs had a vaccum connection for the diverter valve. Both carbs also had the idle mixture limited so that you couldn't make it too rich by adjusting the screw out too much.
Note that the A/F ratio still needs to be 14.7:1 for proper combustion. They were just trying to be more accurate about it.
I can add these couple of sentences if y'all think it's needed.

We took down the form a while back. The reason is the amount of time it took to proof and enter/format the data and respond to/with questions. I did it, it was a whole lot of work.
We (mainly Daniel and myself) continue to add cars to the db. With 10,000+ entries, simply keeping the database updated is a lot of work.  ;)

Your originals were probably dated the same as your rears. Sometimes see them 2-3 weeks apart.

Post a pic of the backup light hole (click Additional Options).
Something's not right. Either someone did a good job or tags have been swapped....

Sure sounds like a LF7/M20 car.
No, no known exceptions.

For your 765 interior:
black belts and buckles
GM emblems, I believe.
1967 is printed on the labels, with the appropriate date code stamped on the label.

Article is mostly written, I need to finish it up......

Deluxe or standard interior doesn't matter.
Does matter if you have deluxe or standard belts. Trim tag will tell you...... IIRC, you have standard belts.

Model 214 fronts, 211 rears.
