Here's another question I have. How common is the elbow that goes in the valve cover to connect to the open element AC? A.I.M. has part #3923260 for Z28 open element page 473 UPC Z28 A5 also page 483 ZL2 A3 has it for RPO L48. So was there no difference in the connector (elbow) use? At least I'll know what to look for if I have to find one.

That was part of the research on the other thread was to try to pin point the time frame of the change.  We know Steve's 01C car is straight and Im still waiting on rare396bronze confirmation on his lid being straight or curved.  My initial thought is that the lid is for a 68 at this point but it is still a little early to know 100%. 

I would really love to hear from some other late 68 & early 69 cars if they have the original lid..
My original 1968 07C Z28 has the curved lettering.
