I have personally removed 1/16 however I do not know if any have been from 67's.
The majority of my experience lies with 69's then 68's far behind is 67.

According to the 1969 Chassis Service Manual 20 lbs.-ft. is the spec.

The factory didn't use gaskets but the possibility of warpage exists. Check the flanges with a straight edge to ensure they are uniform.

Typically I will draw a flat file across both to ensure the mating surfaces are true, IMHO this is much better than gaskets.
The heat on the exhaust side of the head/exhaust manifold is the highest you will find on the external surfaces of the engine and serves to destroy most gasket materials.

I just appreciate all the information and with all the knowledge you guys have on this topic, and I have none other than I know what to call the part in the discussion, you have convinced me that the best course of action is to take it to someone who knows what they are doing. I'm going to try and spend some time watching them work on the diff. and gain the knowledge that way to begin with like you all have suggested. Thank you very much guys for your input. This site is know my go to site to read and chat and learn.

I sent you a PM.

As James mention, you can go to this link and order the information for that car, including...
1. A copy of the factory invoice or billing history.
2. A copy of a dealer order form for that year

That may be enough for the government there.

As far as title information goes, we need to verify the VIN first.  I would like to see the tag.
