UPC-6, sheet C6....the Engine Section

Thanks..  I don't know how I missed that one *S*   and the sketch shows it's mounting consistent with the way JohnZ's is mounted in his photo...

Jim, your heat riser is 'rotated' as shown in your photo, from that shown in the AIM and on JohnZ's engine..  There should only be 3 potential orientations, and one of those is likely impossible due to interference with the engine.  Either of the other two might 'work', but I think I'd go with what the AIm shows, all else being equal.

My 70Z has the heat riser in the same position as JDV69Z's I cut what was left of the original exhaust system off of the car during disassembly. The car had never been apart.

The heat riser valve in the photo in reply #30 appears to be installed upside-down; pushing the weight down (toward the ground) against spring pressure opens it, and that valve can't be pushed down because of the limit pin - it can only be pushed UP. The valve has a flat side, and a chamfered side - the flat side goes against the flat exhaust manifold outlet with a fire-ring gasket, and the chamfered side goes against the flared exhaust pipe with a "donut".

The weight points towards the firewall
Well thats what is debatable, JohnZ car it is pointed towards firewall, and it also shows that in the AIM. I have seen original cars with it both ways (weight pointed to the firewall, or pointed to the frame rail). It made me wonder if they switched the way they mounted them, Maybe later 69 cars have it pointed towards the firewall? or who was working that shift on the line when installing? Just a wild guess on my part.
Sorry, I mis typed. John Z car IT IS pointed towards the frame rail. Mine is pointed towards the firewall, I have seen it both ways on original cars. I am unsure if one is correct and the other is not.

John check out the pic in post 22 and then look again. It looks like it is installed just as it is shown in the picture (chamfered towards the flared exhaust, flat side towards manifold)
also looks like it is installed just like JDV's on the bench.

the AIM only shows it one way... and the 'flat side MUST go up with the donut side down, towards the exhaust pipe....

I agree with the flat side must go toward the manifold, and donut side towards the exhaust pipe. I also agree that it could only go the 2 ways weight pointed towards the frame rail, or pointed towards the firewall. I think the only thing in question now is did the Z/28 leave the line with it only in the one position that is shown in the AIM, or was there a reason it may have been positioned toward the firewall or was it the line workers preference. OR all the original pictures I have and the one shown on the bench by JDV are the exception?

OK guys this is what I found on the 2 heat risers I have...It didn't dawn on me to look in the 1969 Impala A.I.M. I have so I just looked. The part number is 3887024. I Googled the number and found this link on ebay...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-GM-3887024-HEAT-RISER-1966-1967-1968-1975-CORVETTE-1971-Chevelle-SS-454-/181255491532?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2a33ab4fcc&vxp=mtr#ht_3282wt_1007

I founds this as well that has what dates it was used on. I think someone else posted this link too. HR024 is the number and one above it is the small block valve HR023.

No clue who really makes them or if anybody does other then GM.

OER makes a repro part for a lot less money($69), that seems to match up pretty well (in external appearance and configuration) with the NOS one offered for $240..  This probably works for most 2" Camaro V8 systems.

I'll reverse it and try again.

Here's an update...GM part #3880723, heat riser valve, no longer available, it has been discontinued. Add that to the correct aluminum nose piece used on the 1108367 starter. Well, it's back to looking for a used one again.

I called my local chevy dealer ltoday; they didnít show this number on their books. Discontinued for a long while, but they checked other dealers, and found a few dealers who did show one in stock:   They gave me a couple of dealers that showed them in stock (but the price is a bit high).  I called both and confirmed they had ONE part each:
Athens, TX    gm part in gm box..  $95.20.      903-675-5115
Grayslake, Illinois   part on shelf   $95.20   847-223-9086
