1969 single piston calipers have a stationary seal in the caliper bore and the piston seals against it. It really doesn't matter if the caliper has pits in it because it doesn't provide a seal.Therefore there is no need to re-sleeve it. If your pistons are pitted that's a problem that would contribute to a leak. George

Tommy, this car is an "02A" NOR car. George

The bracket in the bottom photo with the rounded corners is the correct bracket for 68-69 B/B. The rounded bracket in the above photo is correct for 70 B/B because the bracket was drilled for a return spring. The 68-69 B/B bracket did not have hole drill in it for return spring.
The rounded bracket with the small hole in I do not think was for throttle return spring because the hole is on the front of the bracket away from the carb. Here is a picture of the rounded bracket. It has a part number 3969829 stamped on it but the 8 is very faint, could be a 3. This picture is again from the 1970 454 LS6. George.

Marty, I am going to replace all my rubber hoses using my original aluminum tubes. In the process of having the aluminum crimp ferrules made and have sourced the correct crimper. I am probably going overboard on this but I would like it to look original. I will keep you posted on my results. George.

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.

That is the exact post I wanted to reply to but I couldn't find it in the search. Thanks.

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.

Mickey, the majority of my car is still at the bodyshop, the rest is in my garage reedy for reassembly. Thanks.
