Found a hot deal on a "6v71" Blower. Someone tells me that this is different than a standard "6-71" Blower. Alegedly I am to stay away from a "6v71" blower...any thoughts? Thanks in advance...!

Yes, the inline 6-71 and 6V-71 blowers are different. The inline version had 8 bolts that attached it to the side of the block. On the 6V engine the blower sets on top of the block between the heads, so it is V shaped to fit between them. It also uses 4 long bolts with square plates under the bolt heads to pull on ribs on the side of the blower case and 1 bolt through each end plate to hold it down.
There is no reason a 6V blower won't work on an engine, but it would require a different intake manifold to mount it, and I have never seen one.

I haven't seen it in person yet only pictures. It is being sold as a 6v71 blower for a SBC. It appears to have a consistent intake for a SBC from the pics anyways. It has dual 750 edelbrock's on top....somehow I discovered that "6v71" is actually diferent than a 6-71 so I worry what he is trying to sell...

If it looks like the basic 671 configuration the seller probably is confusing terminology. Which would make you wonder how much he really knows about what he is selling.
