Default 8" Timing Cover?

I have an October 69 L78 70 Chevelle. My question is this the correct timing cover for my application?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes & No.
Yes it's the right original assembly line design for your 1970 L-78 engine.
No,it's not the right date for your October '69 assembly,being it's the week of Nov.3rd to Nov. 9th,1969 date.
Past your assembly date.

Thanks guys! So "45" is the week in '69, not the day of the year. I'm not too worried about the date more so worried about the correct cover.

That's right,45 is the week in the year,not the day in the year.
It is a correct original cover.
