My 68 396/325 w/ smog has the orig line and it is JAMMED in btwn the block-cover & smog pump mounting bracket.
Amazing how tight it all is. Lots of contact. 80K mile LOS car Coded "MY"
Makes hooking up the carb a hassle and must start the threads while carb is not on studs to get the angle correct.
I have not adjusted the valves in a while but think the vlv-cover is a bear to get removed.
There must be some slack to tweak the line as needed to get things attached.

Dave, I kind of cheated when I fluffed the underside. The dealer undercoating was SO thick I chipped-scraped it off the plugs the plating was preserved and the orig sealer held the plug perfectly that I just touched up the orig sealer with a bead of fast-n-firm. I could see some evidense of stamping but very hard to decern the text. Due to the fact I did the underbody fluff as the last item to refurb I did not  remove them for better documentation-examination and can not offer much details. I will say the  (LOS) underbody was black with lots of factory white (50-A) overspray on the underbelly pan, frame rails & trunk pan.

I removed the plugs from both of my '69s. A couple of them had date stamps. All of them were indentation up. Can anyone point me to the correct sealer product for re-installation?

I just did the underbody make over on my pace car and I used:
3M
Fast'n Firm
Seam Sealer
Beige
08505
12.8fl-oz
(Tube- like caulk gun style)

Sets up hard and is more white-beige Perfect product.

I think these reply’s are right on the mark. I am in the same boat on my 69 right now.

I chose to order a SPECTRA tank from a local vendor and installed it in my other car, a 68. It looks really good, better than the OER painted version. Fit well and appears to be ‘SAME’ as orig, but I really did not study all the curves, bends, folds, indents, welds and on and on,,,I was basically happy.
The option for a NOS replacement item is nice, at double the cost and dependant on condition and if you are a NOS or nothing kind of restorer.

I even called my local plater to ask about options for strip-&-plate ideas for an old tank,,,turns out to be a poor choice $ wise, safety & correctness.

Exactly ----

I pulled my clips off of my pace car and they were so heavily coated in body shop undercoating gunk that when placed in a mild  (Solvent 140) tank the grime came off exposing the tranlucent Blue dye coloring..Nothing like the clips in the left side of the pictures above.
Ultimatly what I did was include the clips in my plating batch (Bright Zinc) and hung them from a wire and mist sprayed them with Dykem Blue layout Blue,,,they look very close to as found.

I like the "Quanta" Made in Canada tank I got for my 68, as I did not care for the painted OER version I saw at swap meets.

Most opt for a replacment tank vice restoring the OLD tank, my thinking was after all the years of abuse, dents, undercoating, corrosion, paint overspray, etc the efforts to restore, (obtaining real plating vice spray painting the exterior) and cleaning & sealing the interior of the tank was not worth the efforts when compared to the current quality avail and offered by the Quanta tank.
The appearance of the 67-68 tank is great.

I have heard that with the 69 tanks (Brand unknown) can have filler neck, position-angle issues?
