Rather than type it out, I'm attaching Lars Grimsrud's excellent paper on how to install a Chevy V-8 distributor; follow the instructions and you'll have it running in no time.
Good write up on "walking the distributor rotor".....I learned this many years ago by accident and never had to use a long screwdriver to index the oil pump shaft thereafter.  Like Lars said, you can walk that rotor around faster than you can find a long screwdriver.  The rest of the article was very well written and informative.  Have never seen this before but I'm sure going to save it for future reference and sharing.

My July 1969 parts book says the part number was 3914863 and in a 1972 parts book the 3931449 has superseded the 3914863.

BTW.....right now GM Parts Direct has one for sale at $14.27 plus shipping.  Looks the same to me.

Danny....this is the usual layout for the plug wires.  The wires are usually cut to length for this layout.  You don't necessarily have to have the #1 plug wire in the position shown.....the #1 plug wire can be anywhere as long as the same firing order is followed, as shown, and the rotor is aimed at the #1 plug wire (at top dead center on the compression stroke)...and also as long as the wires reach the cap slots.  Hope this is not confusing.

Danny...this should be the correct layout.

Anyone know if this is Bill that once lived in Lubbock, Tx.  I heard that he had moved somewhere.

Before you install your balancer........I would put a ring of black RTV around the end of the balancer hub and also some in the key slot to seal out the oil from seeping through.

Looking at my picture and John Z's picture, I better rotate dot-to-dot tomorrow in prep for timing chain alignment. THEN rotate back to 12 and 12 for dist. drop-in.... RIGHT ?... Danny
Good idea.

Danny....You have my curiosity aroused, never thought about that dimple before.  My '68 has a dimple but it is only a 1/4" to the right from the line (balancer laying face down).  Maybe someone will have a logical answer.

Could this PVC and hose with the 2 black pinch clamps be the originals ?  I understand that the PVC could of always been changed for a replacement but what about the hose ?  There's 3 ridge like lines down the hose with no other markings.  Was this a common GM type hose or did they usually have a p/n printed on them ?

Thanks
Hi Darrell....that little PCV valve and hose might be worth as much as $400.00.  I bid over $300.00 for a PCV valve just like yours and didn't win the auction.  So hang on to what you have there.  As to the hose....I have my original 1968 hose and it doesn't have any ridges, it's smooth,.  The ridges could be a '69 thing though.

Yup, just is I thought, you have the short spoiler with no braces.....the same one that was on my 07C car.  The hardware is very interesting also....your car has the standard center bolt (5/16 shouldered) and the small hardware is shouldered screws.  My car has shouldered machine screws on the spoiler side and nuts on the valence side.  There have been several threads on the spoiler and the hardware and this shows that there were indeed two different types of mounting hardware, screws and machine screws with nuts.

Thanks so much for your time and effort for fulfilling our request.

Danny....not distributor related but could you take a few photos of the front spoiler.  Always looking for an original 1st, design spoiler.  Hard to find photos of them....most have been replaced by the larger service replacement.  Thanks in advance for your trouble.

You had good luck on your water pump....quick results.  I was looking for three years on eBay and finally found one this year for my car.  Scored one that was in excellent condition and only needed a rebuild.  My pump had a cast date of E-1-8 which closely matched the casting dates on my block and heads but my engine build date was 6-19.

Toad...call Jerry and ask him what was right and what was wrong about the car.  When Jerry appraises a car he does a very detailed assessment that is usually several pages long.  Most people will not show you the details of the appraisal because they don't want to show you what he found wrong with the car....they just show you the signed document that he states the car is a Z28.  He may relate additional facts about the car than has been discussed previously.  The more you can find out about this car the better off you will be later.  Call Jerry M. to get the facts.
