Re: L78 69 Chevelle
If the engine is original it should have a Winters Foundry aluminum intake with a 780 vacuum-secondary Holley carb and numerous internal differences; i.e., four bolt main block, solid lifter camshaft, forged 11:1 pistons, HD 'dimple' rods, forged/cross-drilled/Tufftrided crankshaft and rectangular port heads. '69 L78 Chevelle engines will also have a unique 37 amp alternator P/N 1100837, a distributor P/N 1111499, deep groove pulleys, an 8-inch diameter balancer and a HD 3-row radiator with tag stamped IA XJ 28 BO (M/T only). Manual trans L78 cars are also likely to have either 3.55 or 4.10 rear gears. 4.10 gears have a KK code stamped on the front of the passenger side axle tube and 3.55 gears feature the letters KF.
