Anyone have any pix of the heat riser on a 68 GTO installed? I received the heat riser but I believe it's for the RA. Will it still fit?

No pictures on this end. Just a Google safe website warning

Are you referring to the heat riser valve mounted under the right side exhaust manifold? Those were deleted midway through 68 production (around March I believe)

If you are referring to the hot air stove/shield mounted on top of the left exhaust manifold, the RA/HO heat stove is different than the standard engine.

The next trick is getting riser to line up like the pix in number 3. Any tips on installing it? Bolt holes seem to be bent the wrong way.

The heat shield/or stove as called out in the service manual, attaches to the cylinder head bolts.

The heat risers built into the passenger side exhaust manifold.
