Steve, what I found is in 68 and 69 L code is the 440 but in 70 L code is 383.

Yeah Chris.  This book goes to 70 and they are both the same.  OK  I plead ignorance.

If it's an L code it's a 383-2bbl in 70.   N code is a 383-4bbl.   Got one of each here.

The aircleaner is wrong for a 70 also, should have rectangular snorkels that year. 

Might be the original motor in there with some changes obviously.

Ok, checked the pad on the motor and it is a 69 383 so the motor has been changed. That's why it has the 4bbl, hp manifolds and dual exhaust. The motor does turn over so the next step is to lube it up and see if it'll run. Wish me luck.

69?  Could be the RoadRunner HiPo...   Some resto house would probably pay big bucks for that motor.  Commando12009-11-27 13:57:33

Well it runs on a prime. Won't suck any fuel out of a can so I can keep it running but that's to be expected since it hasn't run in 20 years.

Yes.  The N code is rather rare for '70.  I've found several '70 cars with the N that have been swapped out by a 440.  So, a rare car gets turned into another meaningless clone.
