Give us a head casting number or check your plug holes again. It should use a tapered-seat spark plug.

on the outside D 3VE-A2A .
under the valve cover there is 3 different numbers 6L23. 201 .32
A guy at work gave me a Holley 850 to put on the 460.His son had it on his 460 in his Cobra kit. Said it ran a little rich . Will it be to much for the 460?

D3VE heads made the day before thanksgiving in 1976.

Those should use an Autolite #25, or NGK #UR4 or BPR4FS plug, gapped at .035" for points, or .045" for most electronic ignitions. The plug is a 14mm thread, 0.460" reach, tapered-seat. Buy whichever is on-sale.

The 850 is a bit big for your build, but it will do for now since it was free, and if you're willing to take time to tune it. It won't make the best economy carb, either.
