help decode a hemi

Post by jmmymac » Thu Jan 25, 2007 11:50 pm

Ive got an oppertunity to purchase a complete hemi minus carbs. The guy tells me it's a 1966 426. i'm haveing a difficult time finding info, then I happend upon you folks. this was built for a boat. reading your forums i'm guessing its a 331. here are the numbers I could find: C51-8-39440, 1323329-1. The distributor is in the rear. I'm actually guessing this is mid to late 50's, but hopeing it is what he says. thanks for any help.
