X-22: How to determine if car was an L78 , L35 or L34?
« on: February 02, 2010, 08:24:26 PM »
1969 X-22 SS396 - It does not have the original motor/drive train in it. Are there any clues I can look for to determine what type of 396 it came with?

I am it the process of getting a records request from OH DMV - hopefully i can track down the original owners and see if they have any original documentation etc.

It does have the following:
- X-22 on cowl tag - build date matches the VIN code sequence
- Big Block heater
- Proportioning valve on sub frame
- Original fuel take with single fuel line sending unit

Thanks!

Single fuel line is L78. Quadrajets had 2; one smaller return line.

All 69 camaros had a single fuel line except the quadrajet ones (L34, L35, L48 and LM1).  Big block heater cover is a bolt on item.   Make sure the tag is original.

How can you determine if the tag is original or not? The date code on the tag matches the VIN.

Post a good photo of the tag here and the experts will chime in...    :)
