Well I had a pretty busy night getting everything lined up for a complete oil line. I was looking at the Ricks oil line kit and the Paragon oil line kit and ordered both. I believe I'm gonna use the Paragon oil line kit so if anyone can use the Ricks oil line kit PM me. I got the fitting in yesterday but didn't check my mail until this morning at 6 AM. Looks good and undamaged. Just need to get the rest of the parts in and I'm all set. Thanks guys for the help. One more little missing item I wasn't aware of scratched off my list.

Yes, I did find that site and I went there as I said in reply #54. I didn't meet all the requirements to register (no FEIN# or State resale# and no business) on the website and saw no other way to make a purchase, so it was of no help to me. I did click the radio button to 'preview warehouse" and when I entered the number I received a no such number alert. You gave me 0650 111200 which I assumed was the part number but nothing came up. I did ask where I should look on the site but this was all very vague. I also sent email but haven't received a response yet, but it is of no consequence now anyway.  I did more searching last night and found everything I needed somewhere else, so it's all good..

Hey guys, got all the parts in for the oil line today. I have a question on the grommet. I was looking thru the 69 A.I.M. and didn't see a reference on it unless I missed it, but I'm curious which way it is installed...from the engine compartment or inside the car and what direction does it face?




Note:
Found it UPC U17 A1,2,3. Page 414, 415, 416. Looks like the grommet gets pushed in the firewall from engine side with tip protruding inside the car.

Here's what I have set up. This should be correct right?

That's it, it will seal perfectly with a fresh set of fittings.

Gary;
Don't want to lead you astray here, just remembered some additional info. The Post 25 fitting 16001 is a larger nut style 3/8" and not the same as original. The only place I could find the original 5/16" nut style shown on post 26 was from: Part number 0650  111200 B.E. Atlas (773) 283-2550 in a pack of 5. Didn't want you to be disappointed when you get the new one, cause it looks different, it will work fine its just not the same as the original.

Hey Todd sorry for the Hi-Jack but I just noticed that we have the same cam. I have not installed my motor yet, but I am wondering how you like the cam?

Thanks

Hey guys I'm getting the impression that the oil line fitting we worked out last year isn't correct. There is another post on T.C. now discussing this. So which one is correct then?

Was looking in the 69 AIM UPC U17 and it definitely shows something different from what was discussed here.

I'm not sure where the confusion came from but in fact Chick and Gary asked me my opinion at the Solid Lifter Showroom @ Carlisle this past weekend and I stated that the fitting on the unrestored garnet red Z we were certifying had the correct configuration that I've seen on all unrestored I've owned and certified. This is the configuration that Dave V. showed in his first post in the above provided link to TC.

For you 1968 guys....my original setup is identical to the one shown by Dave in the TC post.  And this is the setup that screws into the back of the block....not behind the guages.

His post on TC was sorta confusing as to which one he believed to be correct; his first photo was the one with the 'internally threaded' compression fitting and the last two photos he posted showed an externally threaded compression fitting.  
Steve:  You're saying that you agree with Dave that his 'first photo' shows the correct 'internally threaded' compression fitting?

Just to add some 'brightness' to this thread, it seems to be a great place to follow thru on my promise to Steve S. (PaceMe) to post his photo here for all to see.. :)     Here he's shown posed with a very original (I think?).. '67 little old lady owned, one owner, original, never-smoked-in, but slightly-dusty SSRS...  oh.. and I should add 'back yard find' to make this more interesting to the barn find folks.. :)

PS.   It was great meeting you at Carlisle (finally) and getting to discuss some of this stuff personally, and thanks for the loaner badge.. :) ..    Also great to meet with Chick, TMR Eddie Sells, Skip Locaste?, Tom Flanagan (a great '69 yellow-blk Z28), and a few more whose names are escaping me right now while at Carlisle.

Gary, I think Dave's first pic has the cap screwed on/assembled and the last 2 pics separated.
