Intake/Carb ID question


I picked up a Chevy cast iron intake with a clean Rochester 4bbl at the Tillsonburg swap meet today for a song and have a question.
The ID on the Rochester is 7042208 which according to what limted liturature I have is a 1972 4bbl for an automatic Chevy. Any idea what CFM this would be?
The intake casting number is 3927184 which according to nastyz28.com is a 1969 intake. I'm not sure if I am reading the application chart correctly. They have it listed as "350 C.I, A B F X Y / 255, 300, 350 HP, srv repl." I'm assuming all this means:
AVAILABLE ON THIS BODY STYLE:
A - CHEVELLE
B - FULL SIZE
F - CAMARO
X - NOVA
Y - CORVETTE
and came on
255, 300 and 350hp motors as well as was the service replacement intake. I've never heard of a 350/4bbl rated at 255 hp.
So, if I'm right, I think I scored a correct intake for my Laurentian. At least I'll be able to run a 4bbl until a nice big block comes along.

There should be a casting date on the intake. I think it is likely under the coil. Something like C 24 9 or whatever. That would be March 24/69.

See something there?

The date code is B129 which would be Feb 12, 69. I didn't buy anything else. I was feeling a bit frugal today! It looked like a lot of vendors didn't show. Too bad as the weather was great today and the roads were fine.

I just found out the 255 350 was RPO code LM1 and was offered in early '69 Camaros.
What would we do without the internet?

Looks like the intake is a good one. The same intake (with a date code a few months later) is on ebay currently at $102. SEE IT HERE

Or a bogus warranty claim.........

A friend of mine told me his uncle got a call years ago from GM. "We are just checking to make sure you are happy with the warranty repair on the differential in your almost new pickup".

He bought the truck new and had never taken it in for anything like that!
