Well got it all apart. Pulled the pan under intake. Tapped a wide screwdriver in on each corner and just turned it sideways and they popped up. Pan was pretty clean, and so was the underside of intake. Took pictures and reinstalled pa. Cleaned holes with carb cleaner, blew them with air. Filled holes with Permatex Ultra Black. Then put a small amount under each head and knocked them in gently until they bottomed out. I feel confident they are in for good. Found some numbers...

 4. 18. 68 = April 18th 1968. Which should be ok for this car as EVERYTHING is May.

 4 583 Don't know what that is, Part Number?

 Then also a row of numbers and some proof marks? 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 45 / 50 / 60 / 70

Yes I agree, should be about $3,500 tops. BARE block, not even a beat up crank. And it's NOT standard bore!... Dannny

Hey Guys, if you ever see anything on any of these ads with-in 100 miles or so of CA Zip Code 95476... LMK and I can go look for you, and or buy for you. I just went and looked at a '69 Z28 in Half Moon Bay for a guy. Nice all original in need of resto, 30K. Wish I had the money, it sold. But anyway, I will make a run for ya. The semi Famous JL8 guy that got written up in Muscle Car review a few months back is 45 minutes from me, and so on... Just remember, for reference I am 42 miles north of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge... Danny

I forgot about that. I for some reason thought it was in another location. Maybe I'll pull the little pins and check it out. Thanx... D

I was surprised and somewhat bummed that the intake had no date. I read along time ago that some got dates, some didn't. Oh well, no big deal I guess. Just fun to gather date info. ... Danny

I made my own guide studs. Bought stainless steel and cut the heads off. Cleaned up and cut-in slot. Friday starts reassembly.  Danny

More cleaning, since pictures, drained all coolant.

   Drained the oil pan and removed the filter. Left plug out of pan and bought a 5 quart cheapy oil and poured it all thru the valley and watched it all come out the bottom. Should be nice now. Cheap investment at $19. She is ready to go... D

Ok, appreciate all the advice. I will drain the oil, and leave the plug out and pour some cheapy oil all around and thru the system and flush it all down. I don't wanna get into the bottom end at all. Just wanted to clean the pick-up screen. Someone here mentioned that I should drop the pan and do that. And yes, I do see a small leak at the front seal at timing cover/pan. So might as well pull it down and clean it all up, and seal it nice. I hate leaks. I was just wondering if I should replace anything, but I won't. I am not currently steased, and having some fun cleaning and prepping for re-assembly. I enjoy it when things are going well.. Grin Grin

 Here is my cleaning progress...

OUCH, I didn't know that. I already soaked it all up with rags and paper towels. I bought 4 filters, and 4 - 5 quart vintage car oil containers from Summit. So I knew I was going to change it all 4 or 5 times. But I will change it again before I fire it. Once I feel it is running good, I am taking it to my friends shop and putting it on the lift and pulling the pan. Clean it all up in there.

   Should I replace the oil pump with the best high quality one I can find??    Not high pressure, but maybe high volume??    Or just clean pick-up screen and leave the stock one from '68 in there??
    Replace the distributor drive and that plastic connection piece that holds it??  Anything else?? ... Danny

I have to say no, I did not. I just pulled the heater hose, and top rad hose. I will get it all back together and run it for 5 minutes, then change the oil and filter. Danny
