Difference between the L34 and L35 in 68
« on: May 16, 2014, 10:26:52 PM »
Does anyone know the difference between the L34 and L35 as produced in 1968 besides 25 hp?

I believe the engines are the same except for camshafts.

X2, One had a high lift hydraulic L34, other low lift L35. both cams anemic in regards to performance.IMO Everything else the same.

I was afraid of that.Of course its all speculation without documents.I only know I have a BB 68 with RS/SS packages and a rear axle that had 3.07 gears.I suspect it had an auto due to floor.I know it had duel exh as the hangers are still there.I have to recheck the tach.For some reason I think it had an unusual redline of 5700.
