RG, The 366 is the 427 little brother. Just slightly smaller. It is a "Big Block" Has nothing in common with the 454 or the new 6.0L.!!!!
A 366 with a 5 speed and a 2 speed rear axle is truly a Bullet Proof set up and just about unstoppable.This trans & 2 speed set up is commonly call the "Working 4th & 5th" I have personally carried 42,000 of dry wheat on a C65 tandem w/ a 20 ft Midwest bed with 18 in high risers!!! The truck stood naked at 17,000 lbs I have come across the scales at 54,55,56 Thousand lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like some of the others have said, Keep the oil changed, oil the 2 speed unit on the axle. It is electrically operated It shouldn't blow fuses. disconnect the 2 speed unit and try it, that should narrow it down a bunch.
The 366 will run with most 427s just not use as much fuel!. The Holley carb can cause some problems of No Power, if the Power Valve are blown! In the panhandle where I ran the one I talked about 56K was a hell-uva load about 50/55mph was top with that kind of a load!
When all is in order the Governor kicks in at 72 MPH. Hold you Rt foot hard on the floor let the governor kick in, then, Let the engine breath ever so slightly, and put the pedal back on the floor and leave it, and away it will go. Ours would run 80 mph All Out or slightly better empty coming home from the elevator. Hope this helps.
Later,
John A.

Now THAT is how you drive a 427. LOL.

We've got one in a fire truck here... most of the guys complain about it because the Ih with the 466-180 will walk all over it.
The 427 with Ruxel will out run it on the flat... and will pretty well pull with it on the hills IF you get her wound up and make use of the gears. Like you said... place right boot firmly on the floor and let her scream. She gonna pull hell then.
I kinda like running the old thing just to screw with the guys some days.

Rod, True Story,,,,We finished up wheat in July one yr. Both trucks were running crappy. Had Both Holleys reworked w/ new Power Valves. Fast forward to Corn harvest Mid October.
3:00 one afternoon we had moved to our East most Fields 10 miles away from our usual runs. As Luck would have it,I wound up sitting #4 in line @ the Elevator. #s 1'2'3 were our closest Neighbor over there... 3, Chevy twin-screw trucks with 20 ft beds, All w/ 427s and 2 5x4s, 1 13speed. They usually ran together and fast. Their #3 was last off the scales and a scant 2 minutes ahead of me as I sailed off the scales. As I cleared The North side of town they were only 1/4 mile ahead of me. Now our Fastest Tandem was a 72 C60, 366, 5speed and 2speed rear axle. Top on her was slightly over 80. I had a 10 mile run before we all took a side road to the west.
I poured the Coals to her, got her past the Governer, Lined out & Rt foot pushing the firewall forward!! I caught them by the The 5.5 mile line, passed them all by the 7 mile line in one sweep, cause I had a narrow bridge over a dry river bed,, had to contend with it, if I didn't, then had to climb a pretty good hill as I left that narrow bridge. Got to the top of the top of the hill in the lead, and made the turn and west just 150 yrds ahead as they made the turn. 5 miles west........
I parked in the turn row and had my tarp rolled back when they all three stopped and wanted to what we had done to our trucks Their trucks just wouldn't keep up with our smaller 366s. ...........just reworked carbs and knowing how to get all you can out of that engine. Namely getting past the governor, and plastering your Rt foot to the floor.. To this day I don't think they know how to get past the Governer!

John A.
