dyers used to sell the v6-71 they used 4 barrel intakes and made a plate to fit. you would be a lot better off finding the 6-71 gmc and having it converted over. it is possible , convert the v8-71 for gas. and have a good machinist build adapter to a 4 barrel intake, you would need to have your pulleys , crank hub and idler so he could fit it in the right location. Good luck and far as the top plate for carbs is simple
