l have a 69 ss 396 325 hp that came with a quadrajet but the original carb is not with it. Does anyone know the correct carb number and a date? My guess is 7029200 but not sure of the date. The engine build date is T0416JG. Thank you Earl

Earl -

Good guess!  7029200 is the correct carburetor for the '69 Camaro 396-325 hp (L35) engine with the TH400 transmission.  The carburetor was installed at the car assembly plant, so it should be dated from about ten days to a month or two prior to the car's final assembly date.

04C

Earl -

Any carburetor with a date code in the 02C - 04A range should be satisfactory.  Everyone agree?   Smiley

A carburetor with a date code of 0489 to 0949 (2-17-69 to 4-4-69) should be satisfactory.  Everyone agree?

Unfortunately, there's some confusion in the various references on this carb.
The correct # 7029204 FF.
The date could even be a week closer (about 1019).

FF is the customer code, sometimes referred to as the broadcast code.

I am seeing the 7029204 was used more for the 350 hp motor.

Possibility? Which, the date or the carb #? The carb # is the correct one. I believe the L34 auto used the same carb, but I can't confirm it, yet.
The 7029200 is not the correct carb.

If 7029204 is the right number the search begins again for me. I finally found a 7029200 recently. I should have asked first. Don't worry Earl, I am looking for a Nov. 1968 date so we won't be competing for the same one.

The website that referenced the carb # also had the L35 districbutor as a 1111497. Is this correct?

I'm not. 204 is what is actually on original cars. Never seen a 200 on an original car.

I'm looking in the CRG database. We have several 69 L35 cars that we have data on the the original carb. I also confirmed it via broadcast sheets.

I have the same car with the build date 09A, and carb. number 7029215 .
I assume that this is the factory carb. as everything else is stock on the car.
Am I incorrect thinking this?

Your car must be a 4 speed as the odd numbered last digit would indicate. If your car is 4 speed it is probably the right carb based on another website I found recently. The 7029204 is for automatic.

I do not think that's the correct carb for an auto car.

L/34 is the 350hp-396.  L/35 is the 325hp-396

7029204 and 7029215 are the 396-350hp & 427-390hp carbs based on my research.

For 1969, the Rochester 7029204 FF Carburetor was used on the 396/325 and the 396/350 with Automatic Transmissions.

The 7029215 EH Carburetor was used on the 396/325 and the 396/350 with Manual Transmissions.

Note that both of these differ from published listings, but CRG research has shown these applications to be correct.
