I think "one of one ?" is a Ford or Mopar term.

The only Mustang I ever had was a Fender.

I have seen factory air cleaners dented for the fuel bowls, float adjusters, ect to make a Holley fit. My corvette that came with a 600 Holley was dented pretty could to fit a 780.

Not that I know, but just a thought. Think someone was thinking here are actually 70 model parts slated for 69 cars? Of course if only one ratio kind of makes that ? But I don,t think rocks or whatever did it. Could someone say" this load is going to Norwood and should not have the C" ? Maybe one guy on one shift who was later corrected. Maybe his work station was in the 12 bolt area? Lot of maybes here. I worked on an assembly line in the 70,s for IBM and heard phrases like that part came off 3rd shift because someone installed something differently. Not wrong just different.

I am a huge Holley fan but the Qjet is really hard to beat. Yours being a 60,s model makes it all the better. There are people that can repair or restore them. Look for the guys who actually test them on their "mule engine". My cars that came with them still run with them.

Bryon, I don,t think I gave you my 08E. I will try and get it to you in a day or so.

Did Norwood build impalas? At any rate you are probably in the same boat as all of us, the one without a paddle.

Subtract CPO,s ZL1,sZ11,s and Z10,s from total per previous post. Kind of rare considering that they are everywhere.

Refering the lens as a bulb when looking parts might confuse people. Years ago I tried to find "bulbs" for my 68 vette. It was the cable loose in the console.

I think you have it narrowed down now. Some HP valve springs are thicker and have been known to pull up the umbrella type seals. Even if they look like they fit they will touch at full lift. Just a thought.

There is a utube video of a guy a guy checking out of the box aluminum heads mainly for valve angle cuts and leakage. It shows some really surprising things good and not so good. I think you brand was one of the brands. Valve seals would be my first place to look. I might would contact them and tell them you are doing that.

William, you never cease to enlighten me. The 4889 for L78,s is what I always believed. For automatics 10% or 489 is what I thought. What is your thought on L78 auto?

Since no one has responded, I have looked at them but not side by side and the repop looked good to me. You might contact JM and ask. He is a nice guy and I feel sure he would know.

While I agree with the above, a few thoughts. I assume you have a dual plane intake? Kind of makes the pics showing one side of the motor with darker plugs rule out a few things.  What heads? rebuilt original done at the same time? aftermarket? two that were not a pair? I think several valves on one side are leaking oil. I would start with all the seals on that side with the head on checking for excessive clearance while doing it. Worse case you can pull that head with the intake on. Just bolts, exhaust, ect. I frowned on doing that until we had a completely show detailed engine with a gasket leaking water in one cylinder. It was fairly easy and a little touch up on the head paint and ready to go. If you have an AC car I would drive it like it is.

I think the seal procedure is the same in or out on an assembled engine. It is getting the oil pan off and on that is the real b-t--. I did a pan swap (no seal) and should have pulled the motor. Some cars the pan drops off. Some cars fan shroud, hoses, exhaust bolts, motor mounts, ect. Then the motor is just sitting there.
