Tail Light Housings still in great shape with mounting tabs intact.  Will just need some TLC to the insides with new paint.

I'm also guessing this is dated as "9B21"  (Feb 21 '69).  Sems washer bolts with star washers

I checked and the mechanical pump on the hemi flows 110 GPH. I might put my pump on that replaced the 40669 and hope it doesn't leak. It has the correct logo but wrong number. I think its 40 years old and might see what the repops look like

I have not raced it but know its probably getting under 10 mpg. Gauge acts funny so I top it off regularly. 1300 cfm with one to one linkage and a fair sized fuel pump. Of course there's no way to drive it kindly.

Ok, all sounds good. I didn't do the rotor skip trick, as it fell right in place both times, so maybe I got lucky. I thought that distributor sounded all set-up correctly. It must be the carb. Cause when I try to adjust the fuel/air in, the idle just keeps climbing up and up, and with the adjuster screws all the way in it idles up to 2,000, but doesn't die. So I couldn't get it correctly adjusted. I bought this carb new off line. I don't know what it has. My original is boxed for now, as I think it needs more throttle bushing work etc, it's binding and not closing all the way.. I will send it out to a pro rebuilder when I get the money. Maybe this winter.

 Why did it run better with that crappy distributor ?

  Vac at idle is 10. So I will pull this carb and install 4.5's or 5's ?? It probably has the 6.5's in it stock, but not sure. I will go check the Vac at static idle tonight, with the original Dist. installed. I wanna use that one to measure Vacuum again correctly, right ? ... Danny

Thats what people don't understand about NOS stuff.  ALL of it came from the Service department.  When a completely new car came into production part of the servie organization at GM had to go thru each and every peice that they needed to have on hand, and decide if an existing part was Functionally equivalent to a part on the new car.  If so they stocked the funtionally equivalent part.  If there was nothing out there that could be used, they stocked that part or parts.  Over time as other lines changed, were added or deleted the definition of functionally equivalent got looser and looser.  Most servie parts are not the same peice that came on the car originally, and the further away from the year the car was made makes it even less likely the part was actually even used on the car originally.  Look at NOS trim rings as an example.  Production cars had either the 4 clip retainer or the dragons teeth retainers design up to at least late in the 69 model year, some had D shaped valve stem holes, some had holes open to the inner edge, some are oval some are round yet every NOS trim ring has the multi finger retainers and oval valve stem holes that came out late in 69.

Service parts are not production parts.  If people want to pay stupid money for incorrect parts have at it.

The term used widely now is 'form and function'.

Thanks Kevin for posting that pic...Did you find any signs of it being mask off on the back side to keep from getting on the argent? I would guess the amount of overspray would vary as well?

Steering Column with a few markings that I assume are dates.  There's an "9 A 066".  Would the "9 A" be year and month (Jan '69) ? and what about the "066".  There's also a number "46" stamped near the base.

I bought this silver grill at a swap meet a while ago and pretty sure the garnet red paint is the factory overspray.
