Dang, you're in 60's GMC heaven! Definitely get both of those engines. I'd offer him $300 for both and tell him you might be able to tinker with it enough to get one engine out of the deal if you're lucky, since they don't sell parts anymore.

These are diamonds in the rough. He probably hasn't had anyone come by looking at them in years. There's GOLD in them thar' hills!

You want to know the funny part of all of this. We was coming back from visiting our daughter and grandkids. They live about 3 hours away. Anyways it was on Monday and I wanted to stop and talk to him. About 5 years ago I knew of about 3 305's and 1 351 that he had in his yard. When I told him what I was looking for he told that he was actually looking for a 401 also for a loader or something that I really don't remember what it was. Well anyways he told me that he didn't have anything. I mentioned that i knew about the other engines and then he told me to check this certain truck but didn't remember if it had anything in it. So I found the truck and it still had a v6 in it. We still had about a 45 min drive to get home so I just looked at it real quick. At this point I never saw the one laying in the dirt. I called him when I got home and he said he would sell it for core price. So technically he has 3 401's lol. I'm definitely going to get both engines. He also told me that at the end of April he's acquiring another junk yard that the previous owner was a cadillac and gmc collector. He told me to contact him then and I can go with him to look an see what's all in there I'll let everyone know what I find

That last reference to another yard sounds quite interesting! May be more gold there too.

You're close enough I sure would like to, but I had to cough up $4k in taxes this year, 9k in ex wife bills, and I'm staring down the barrel of $6k worth of braces for the Powerpuff. Always the way with me. I'm so broke right now I can't pay attention.

I'm headed down Thurs to pick up the non magnum 401. Just curious is there pros and cons to either engine. Really hoping that the magnum once I get it out of the truck and home I can get it broke loose. What I've read on jollys site is the magnum produces more up but at higher rpm and less torq at a higher rpm. What's your guys thoughts

I can't swear but I think all's the same but fer the exhaust manifolds and intake options. Might be smoked up on that. . . . I bet ya someone will correct me if that's the case.

It's not all the same Magnum engines have larger port heads with bigger diameter valves, that's been common knowledge since the inception of JOLLY'S 6066 site.

I think you’d be ahead of the game either way long as you get a runner out of one.
