Looks like a 454, but supposedly the deck height is higher. Definitely not the pickup 6.0. I would have liked a diesel, but The whole truck was only a little more than it was worth for scrap. If I am only going to drive it a couple 1000 miles a year the price difference didn't make sense.

Not sure if it is currently stuck in high or low. Waiting on the door sticker to get back from the state so I can hit the road. The title only took 3 days. Been driving it around in the harvested oat fields. Seems like she is going to be screaming to get to 60 mph. Having the extra gears would be nice, some pretty big gaps as it is now, some big hills between home and where I plan to sell my crop this year. If I don't get it fixed it won't be the end of the world, it should still be better than dragging wagons with an open station tractor.

The 366,396,402 and 427 are in the same Chevy engine family but the 454 is a differant engine.

An optional 454 could be ordered in the C70 back in 1979-80.... When it came time to replace a 454, a new 427 could be bolted into place.. same manifolds, water pump, etc.. 366 was often replaced with a 427 also.. Wasn't uncommon to have a few new 427 crate engines stored along the wall in one of my stalls..

Those medium duty (40-50-60-70 series) 454 truck engines were a different beast than the light duty (10-20-30 series) 454 engines.

The company I worked for ran 283,327 and 350s in the early 70's when I started working. Then in the early 80s they run 366,396 and 427s in Chevy & GMC tractors. Also in the early 80 they bought 7 L series Ford s powered by 370v4 gas engine. When those engines gave out they repowered them with Chevy 427s. They did try 429 Ford and 454 Chevy and found the 427 Chevy to be more reliable. Mid 80s on up they went to tractors powered with 3208 cats,IH DT466and different models of Cummins engines. The 38 years I worked for the company I liked the Chevy 366 and IH DT466 engines the best. The tractor I drove with the Chevy 366 was a stronger pulling engine than some of the 427s.

Block the wheels and get under there. Disconnect the wires on the back side of the 2 speed motor and then operate the switch on the gear lever. If it doesn't blow the fuse then you know the problem is in the 2 speed changer. The switch often goes bad inside the changer. Last year a farmer brought one to our shop and the changer was so worn out we installed a whole new unit on the rear axle. It shifted normally then.

last 366 I had would top out around 70 you could hear 4 barrel sucking down the can remove the cover off the motor of the two speed on the axle and move the gear up or down from low to high or high to low and see if you are in hi or low
