Looks like we are starting to get a good sample size to see what the transition period was.
 Feel free to add to this if you have a 67 with original gauges.

Photo of the firewall for the oil pressure line to the console gauge. It has a grommet but you can see the score mark in the paint wher the brass fitting used to be. It must have been repaired at one time and changed to the grommet. 11C 1968 build.

Is any one able to tell me if the line and fittings need two of the small barrel sleeves (one on each end)?  My block fitting came with only one of these sleeves. If only one is needed what side does it go on (block or gauge)?
