Noticed this 046 has a D combustion chamber. All 046 460 like that?

Founds some good info posted by Wiggs in KY on 046 460 cylinders.

((((((((There are several different 046/460 cylinders. The earliest 046's, they had the d-shape chamber, larger transfer ducts and larger upper transfers, coupled with more transfer duration.  The last one i put a wheel on, Going off memory here, was around 100/115/75. Very little blowdown. Stock for stock, they will walk the dog over the late model 460 jugs. Not even a contest....

Then they shrunk the upper transfers and tunnels and gave it more blowdown. Consiquently, the exhaust port got smaller when that happened. Finally they ditched the D-shape chamber, gave it even more blowdown, and a pencil sized exhaust port opening. ))))))

Put a DP muffler cover set up on a 046  guy that said his dad bought new in 1994.  He got it with bad piston not running and redid it.

Also put a HD2 air filter, switched to KL200 40:1 and tuned with a 16" in the ash log.  Fun fun let'er rip potato chip.  8)
