The drivers side repro doesn't point in the right direction.

Thats correct, the angle is just a little off from the originals. It will still clear the alternator fine though when installed. At least they did on my 73 L48. I've had my smog system on and off a couple times so I do have both original and repro tubes. ( none for sale). Plus a couple of each that had to be cut off the manifold. These are currently no longer available for the small block by any of the regular big time vendors. I bought my repro pair a couple yeas ago from Paragon. Not sure why the manufacturer quit making them. Might not have been enough of a demand. Some of the vendors still list the repro tubes for the 454 cars. You can keep checking eBay also. Prices are high! Another vendor( moderngenauto.com ) has a pair listed, part number 15759. Not sure if they'll work on your 69 SB. Pricey!! You might want to give Bill Hodel a call to see if he has a pair for your 69. He advertises in the NCRS Driveline. Here is his contact info. [email protected] or (330)832-0871. Or also try David Sokolowski, he too advertises in the Driveline. (310)329-52334. Here are a few photos of the original & repro side by side FYI. The original is on the right side in the pics. Note the angle difference, the different nut size,etc. All of the originals that I've seen have the K stamped in them as shown. It's on the bottom side of the butterfly...

Manufacturers mark stamped on original.

Here's another source for A.I.R. manifolds. I've never purchased from them so i don't know how they compare to the OEM pieces.
