    Bill, the nipple is not pointing the wrong way. Every EGR I've seen, at least 73-74, has the nipple pointing towards the choke coil spring just like yours. It points forward towards the front of the car.
    When you mentioned it, I thought you meant the nipple was pointing straight down to the intake. That was prior to your pic. When I saw your pic, I was thinking of just the base and the part number and not the direction of the nipple at that point.
    I apologize for any misunderstanding.

    Billy that pic is kinda misleading, it points down to about the 6 or 7 o'clock position not straight ahead in the 3 o'clock like it should.

    Okay, I see what you mean. That has to be unique for the 6-cylinders, at least for 73. Thanks for the clarification, Bill.

    No problem at all. Thank you for finding it and posting some pics. I appreciate it.
    That one is very close to what I need but unfortunately not for a Z28. In my previous post from the parts catalog, you can see it meets all the criteria except the most important one. The typical "missed it by that much".
    Is the other one you have the same number? Thanks.
