 They sure came out with much more choices since I got my can. This would be the same type: DRI TOUCH® DS Dewatering Sealant

Was it possible to get that VIN stamped so close to the head with the head on?

I plan on using one once I complete my current restoration. I'm going to use a small boxer type of fan to keep air circulating within the storage bag and also plan to have an air exit so as to allow moisture escape.

 I use Dri Touch ( http://www.birchwoodtechnologies.com/store/rust.html )
I have a quart since the 80's and use a small model paint brush to apply it.
The site above shows gallon sizes but one gallon will last you a life time.
I apply about twice a year. It dries and doesn't have that wet look nor collects dust.

 John, serious about real coffee cans? Were the distributors timed and locked down by that time?
Was the distributor cap on too during the spraying process?
Heck, if it was a real can I'll use a Maxwell House can and replicate the process when I respray my block again.

As a suggestion, if the cover you have is pitted, instead of getting one with surface pits redone, you can buy an exact repro (shape and stampings) for around $25 from many Corvette parts places. Outside from correct fonts there are no date codes to worry about.
There are two type of repros I have seen where it comes to the 4 vent holes on the sides of the cover under the bail wire. Some have the vent punches facing out and others have it facing inside. I have only seen inside facing vents (like those shown by ko-lek-tor) and those on my 67's.
  The place that has correct looking caps with the inside facing vents: http://www.westcoastcorvette.com/

 This is a picture of a 1967 L35 cast iron pulley P/N 3873847. I looked closely and it appears semigloss. The pump is gloss black.
I know you asked for 1968, but so many 67 parts and finishes were carried over to 68 so perhaps this is the same for yours?
Do you have the cast iron crank pulley too? I examined that and it looks to have a gray phosphate finish. I can provide pics of that if interested.
Again, this is for a 67 L35 MZ w/K19 smog pump.

Also Gary's is different than ko-lek-tor's.  Garys has SAE J1703 Brake Fluid
Ko-lek-tor's looks like a 67 cap.

 Very interesting! The first time I have seen an addressograph in action. It looks like a typewriter. I found it of interest how the trim tag was attached to the body. It looks like the bulp like tool may have gone through the rear of the tag rivets instead of flattening the end as on a Camaro tag. The other difference I realized was using robotic sprayers in '67 compared to the manual spraying (with no masks either).
  Thanks for the link!

72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct Bi-metal choke kit on: May 11, 2014, 09:01:21 PM
 Ed, that looks like the correct linkage LVN has in his two pictures.
I am looking at my 7037210 (396/AT,AIR) and 7027211 (396/MT) and they have the same linkage as the 7027210.
The choke rod has to pull the linkage down to allow the choke butterfly to open.

 If applying heat doesn't work (it may not because glue gets really hard after a few heat cycles from the motor), I have had good results by:
1- Lightly sand the paper coating with 220 grit or finer paper just enough to scuff only the decal surface. This will make the surface porous.
2- Spray or using a cotton ball, dab tar remover onto the paper surface.  You can get tar remover in any auto store.
3- After it soaks in for a few minutes try to lift the edges and work off.
4- Finish off with soap and water.

 Isn't that a water wall in front of them to act as an air filter?
