Ill check the casted number on the block tonight.
Looking at Jolly's site, it says the 401 magnum was used in '66 and later trucks.
Mine being a '61, I think I may not have a magnum...

The Magnum engines were introduced in 1966 so a 61 would just be the smaller port 401

Blast, I'd do the 2 barrel holley then. Unless you like fabrication. Only one of us that I am aware of that fabbed a non-magnum intake for a 4 barrel.

2bbl might be the way to go, since I won't be "racing" it.

I don't race mine at all. lol Engine is built for torque...Id lose to a 4 cylinder ricer. haha But when towing, it seems the extra barrels help. I towed 10,000 pounds up a grade and accelerated from 1500 RPM in 4th.

No racing here, just trying to look cool, and maybe haul my '46 with it.
I got numbers from the block. 40103079
I included a shot of the vin also.

I got all the running lights working. Left blinker still doesn't, but i think that's in the switch.

Did some spark plug searching today...
Didn't find much.
I'm planning on using a AC 44xls? I think that's what I bought. either way, it's long reach. That's correct right?

Next is to see if any of you guys are trying to part with a magnum intake?

Getting a magnum intake will be a bit of a chore. haha Many don't want to part...I got mine and will never part with it because it took darn near a year to get it. lol

Probably a ground issue on the blinker. Really common.
