If it's a stock 1969 engine, it's inside the fan housing, roughly about where the coil is bolted on.

You've got probs if you can see it!

Look at the engine with the deck lid open. See the fanshroud ( vertical tinware with the dynamo/alternator bolted to one side of it.)

It's in there to left of centre. Stands upright and almost reaches the top of the fanshroud inside.

On a later car it is fatter than the fanshroud so the fanshroud has a sort of "extension" at the back. this is known as a "doghouse"

Found it, it is inside the fan shroud with an air scoop under the engine... I was looking for one externally - no wonder I couldnt find one was beginning to worry. lol.

There should not be any 'air scoop' under the engine.

Well okay not a scoop as such but there is some sort of ventilation passage into the area of the oil cooler...

if you look down the back of the engine from inside the engine compartment are you talkign about something that looks a bit like this...



it doesnt scoop air, its the hot air outlet from the oil cooler to keep the hot air out of the sealed engine compartment, this style of oil cooler arrangement is known as a doghouse cooler.
