Mike, the Mustang looks great as a result of your efforts.  Thanks for sharing the pics.  I would have never known that acetone could take off the white lettering without screwing up the blue underneath.

In the eBay link Ed provided above, the seller (ggordog) states in the listing description...

"This will fit all small block Winters casted Chevy aluminum manifolds from 1962 on."

Picked it up today. Its always sat lower on the driver rear than the passenger rear, which I assumed were due to aging leaf springs - looks like I was wrong...

I've enjoy seeing such a wonderful looking 68 in what looks like it was lost and stuck in time and then awakened in 2016-....

Thanks for the post and pictures. My 68 is so from original i don't know anything other than it was a V-8,  real RS and had a Muncie. A repainted with many things changed former drag car from the 1970's had little clues left when I found it in 82 with no mortar or trans. Even the 12 bolt date dosent quite fit the time line close enough. But it did still have a 5.38  :D

The rally green is my favorite color from that era. Mine was British green now old DuPont midnight blue I think I remember it being said.

Fan for AC or K02 cars

For 1968 cars with hydraulic lifter engines with AC or K02 (except 1968 L34/L35 with K02), the 3789562 fan or the 3931002 fan was installed. The 3931002 is a seven blade fan with limited observed usage on Camaros; it has so far been found on some LF7 (327/210hp) cars with air conditioning.

Yes, limited use, but only on the LF7 with A/C

No, there are several. Mostly for cast iron, but even the aluminum have a few different ones.

Anyway, the 1967 & 1968 302 3917610 guard isn't listed in the P&A, but the 3932472 is (1969 302), and that one uses the 3758369 GUARD. I would assume the 3917610 uses the same guard, but again, it's not listed so I can't say for sure. Maybe Jerry can verify this since he probably has a million of these manifolds stashed in his office!

Thank you Ed; I had already read this. Since the reference to the 1002 fan is, again,  "limited observed", I was looking for confirmation of l34/35 (real-life cars) of having being equipped with the 1002 fan. Reference car is 68 l34 non-AC. I see no documentation stating the 1002 fan was never used on the L34/35.
I also was under the impression that only the solid lifter engines received the 3871276 fan due to the higher revving engine requiring a larger fan-to-clutch mounting circle.

Any help greatly appreciated.
