Mickey, The engine from my car was taken apart 18 years ago by previous owner. He saved & bagged everything, but I got 2 lift brackets in with the parts. I saw the squared top bracket in Jerry's book and decided to use that one. Does not make it correct though. Maybe these are left over 1968 brackets because I have seen them on 68 396's.
Here are pictures of both of mine.  George.

I cleaned up some more AC hoses and took pictures. The "P-7510" designates the type of hose as I found it on Chrysler's & AMC hoses also. Four digits after that are Julian date and year hose was made. I took measurements of the hose & protective insulation also. George.

I looked at two very original 69 cars last Saturday. Both untouched black interiors,and norwood cars, 1 built 02A, 1 built 02C. Both cars had suede finish to rear trim pieces, screw heads painted, and matched the dash upper panel. I could not get good pictures at night. George

William nice picture. I think I have some old french locks off a small block manifold that have orange paint on them. Mickey I had my manifolds ceramic coated in a dark cast iron color then painted them orange. I  hope that as the paint burns off it will show dark iron color instead of rust. The picture below is from a 27 mile LS6 and you can see how quickly the paint burned off. Credit for taking the photo goes to (704EVER2008's). George.

Mickey, I had a similar problem this weekend with my Chevelle, same fan & clutch setup. My original fan clutch failed 2 years ago so I bought a replacement at NAPA, worked great. I wanted to get my car judged last year and bought what was supposed to be "assembly line correct" reproduction. It wasn't exactly like my original but close. I drove the car in 80 degree weather and it ran hot 210. Put the NAPA clutch back on and it ran 190. It really bothers me to pay 3X auto parts store price for a part that doesn't work. George

Guys, thanks for the input. John I really appreciate your comments, that means allot coming from someone who oversaw or implemented operations like these at the plant. We are lucky to have you on board. George.

I was at a car show with my 70 chevelle and someone commented on my by pass should not be painted. That didn't really bother me but it brought up a sore point I have had with judging in the past. Twice I lost points because I was told the by pass hose should not be painted. One of the judges said I had too much paint on my exhaust manifolds, but also told me my original 772 fan blade was made in 1972 so I just ignored his opinions. I worked on these cars when they were fairly new and worked on many original corvettes and distinctly remember the by pass hoses on CAST IRON manifold cars were fully painted. The paint did not adhere to the rubber hose so after 40 years only the clamps and part of the hose has paint remaining on it. Aluminum intakes had a mask that also covered part of the by pass hose but that's a different animal. Last night I got view an Original owner 1966 427 Vette that is one of the most untouched cars I have seen in many years. Her car shows paint on both ends of the hose.This is a NCRS awarded car. The B&W photo is from Chevrolet archives and clearly shows the hose painted. Another archive from VN shows the how BB exhaust manifolds were painted. I will also post how I painted my engine and would like to get comments, positive or not, if you feel that I did it correctly. This engine has not run in 18 years so more paint will probably flake off after I start it.
Thanks for your time. George.
