From another site, just trying help this guy out. Can anyone say for sure which is correct? I know which one I think it is but can't prove it yet.

The first one posted on the left. Both the Canadian Chevrolets & Pontiacs used them. They almost look more like the U.S. Pontiac type with their removable lid, as opposed the U.S. Chevrolet's removable body (shown on the right).

I also believe the one on the left is for sure canadian BUT it also has a slight cut out under the front to clearance the fuel line coming into a Factory FOUR barrel rochester carb.  i think this is also correct for 61 and 62 canadian fulsize.     The oval snorkel i cannot verify as to what year it is correct for tho.

One thing I just saw also, the top hose in the right picture goes to the drivers side, like the 66 and newer years do.

That sure seems to be a solid proof the left side one in the top picture I posted is correct then. Thanks.

Not sure if the right side one is Chevy/Cdn Pontiac , but I know on that style, it was used in different Chevies but you had to count the dimples on the top. Some looked the same. Mine is chrome, which is correct for a 63 Chevy 340hp 409, Im not sure what is correct for the Cdn Pontiac 63 409.
