Chris,
Is this from your N-N coupe? I thought it was a 10D car?

Kurt,
Yes, N-N coupe.  It is 10E,   L309454.  Sorry it took so long to respond.

Ever seen a male plug used, from the factory, in either boss?

Thanks Paul.  Nice looking manifold.  I had it set-up for a guage at the head and the idiot light off the manifold.  The car is not an original Z.    Ever seen a female plug used, from the factory, in either boss?

ok then.  Water by-pass plug.  Thanks.  I was told it was the Temp boss.  I have it right on my set-up.  Anyway, ever seen a female plug?

During the 1968 model year production, the themperature sending unit boss was plugged on a Z28 intake.   Does anyone know what the steel square drive plug looked like on a 3917610 Z28 intake?  Was it a female or male plug?  I have seen it both ways.  Does it depend on Los vs Nor build, or early vs late production?

Drop the bumper or remove the tail lights. If it still has the  factory finish there will be untouched paint. My O5C LA car was glossy since i purchased it in 1980, This year i stripped the car and had it repainted and am now sure it was semi-gloss.

Don't want to start this up again, but i thought this might be another good referance point.  Here is a pic to a tail pan with factory paint with the tail light removed.  I had waxed the left side to get rid of the fading.  The paint around the light matches.  The right side of the pic is untouched, dirt and all.  It's semi and looks very close to the tail pan on Post #20. Definately not full gloss.

Reading your link and post #21 BY Jerry@CHP it appears they are just as good as long as you shot peen, mag, and use good ARP bolts.  My car does not have pink rods, bnut we did the above plus polished them.  Good luck. - cm

I have not idea about what notch you are talking about??  Only thing on the end cap is a machined boss area that is used to machine or grind down when you balance the engine.

And basically, all of the large journal rods are the same.  Once you shot peen, mag and install good ARP rod bolts, you have a pink rod.  One of my race engines does not have pink rods and it has several hundred runs on it.

The aggregrate on sand paper is aluminium oxide.  If you bast with aluminium oxide it avoids the problem of paint not sticking.  You still have media that needs to be shop vac out of the car, but problem solved.  Just keep the gun moving and shoot at an angle so you don't burn a hole in or warp the metal.

I have a friend that has done this.  Assuming you have enough power, it is all in how the rear-end is set-up.  Start your research there.  I'll talk to him and see if I can't find out more. 
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Gas tank date codes on: January 07, 2010, 11:10:37 AM
I have two, both are for 68 model year.

Los 10E car - 7 5 N  (7 may be a 2 and 5 is upside down)

Nor 02E car - 68 32 (2 is upside down)

I believe both these tanks to be original to the car.  I have owned the Los 10E car since almost 25 years.
