Kurt,

Make sure you make it to Tortuguero while you're down there.   :)

Haven't made it to Tortuguero yet. Corcovado is on that list too.
The kid's favorite was up by Cerro de la Muerte, over 9000 feet and cold - they get frost at night this time of year there. A really neat place with big oaks, very different than down lower.

Please note that tonowanda built SB had the manifolds installed before painting Flint did not.
What this means is Z28's did NOT come with painted exhaust manifolds.

That's correct - the process changed at Flint V-8 in 1965 to install the exhaust manifolds after paint; the photo below shows the Tonawanda paint line, and you can see the second engine is a small-block with the exhaust manifolds in place.

This photo shows what looks to be either a way to manipulate the engine for painting or part of the mask for the end of the water pump and the by pass hose is this correct?

It stood out like a sore thumb then again I happen to have been looking at the front of a 396 in paint dress for the last 6 months...
After examining it further I see that the "45 deg rail" looks like it could be covering the Stamp pad...

John how did the guys painting the engines keep for breathing in the paint fumes? It don't look like they had respirators.

In those days, there was no requirement for personal protective equipment, unless it was requested; most people didn't bother with anything more than a simple mask.

 Isn't that a water wall in front of them to act as an air filter?
