In 67, 68, or 69, did the small block ever come from the factory with an intake manifold with the long oil fill tube and a Holley carb? I ask because my 327 (not original to my 67) has an aftermarket intake manifold and Holley carb, and this intake does not have the long tube in front by the thermostat housing for adding oil. To make the engine look period correct, I went looking on Ebay for a intake manifold with this tube, but all I can find are ones with what appears to be a Rochester Quadrajet(?) setup. I'd rather not use a conversion/adapter plate to make my existing Holley work.
If this was not any option for a 327, did Chevy do this type of intake manifold (with the long oil tube) on a 350 perhaps, and with a Holley carb?
Or, was a different manifold used whenever a Holley carb came from the factory? Using different valve covers with an oil cap?
Or, am I totally off?
Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
