Hey there... putting away a few parts and just wanted to be sure before I clean them up and  stored them:

Was the carburetor and distributor on the engine when it was painted orange?   L48 1969 or just the distributor?

The lift hooks were on, the dipstick was not, the water outlet was on, the exhaust manifolds were on, water pump and no pulley's?   How about the fuel pump?


thanks guys.... I read the engine assy. process and saw pics from the 67 line but wasn't too sure if anything had changed.

The distributor was in place (and covered with a coffee can) when the engine was painted, but the carburetor was installed at the car assembly plant, as was the fuel pump and all the pulleys. The exhaust manifolds were installed after engine painting (that started in 1965).

Look in the Assembly Manual - any part that shows an item number and part number callout was installed at the car assembly plant, thus will not have orange paint on it.

Yes, but how do you get paint to stick to the exhaust crossover ports! Cheesy Mine are already plugged internally and externally.
