   Yes. Often found on carbs of that part number . Green color is correct.
When was the end of the use of the green tags ?

CPVC pipe is commonly  used in fire protection sprinkler systems orange  color is common and typically if it has water in it and is exposed it will only char, pipe being above sheetrock is preferred. There not designed to extinguish but to send an alarm and control a fire until the fire department can arrive. As Jeff stated the fires in this thread are not typical.

Does this pump have a date code on it ?

The parts you need would be the 390 GT manifolds ?

Do you know the date for the radiator.

I have a VP Racing Fuel distributor near me, so I run straight 110 leaded in both my Kirkham and KR. 

Each car has an aluminum side-oiler (468-cid/10.5 compression/580hp KR; 482-cid/10.5 compression/600 hp Kirkham) and they love the extra oomph of the race gas.

Yes, it's $9/gallon, but is worth it to me. I don't put a ton of miles on my cars, and want to be able to drive them on hot days without detonation or cranky manners due to California's crappy pump gas.

Plus, who doesn't love the sweet smell of race fuel in the exhaust...and knowing you're spewing enough hydrocarbons to offset the earth-saving smugness of about 500 Priuses every time you drive it.
With lead added 100 octane comes out to about $4 a gallon with east coast pump prices. A 68 owners manual calls for premium fuel of 99 octane for a 390GT which had 10.5 compression.
