I went to tune it up yesturday and removed the plugs.
According to Autolite the plugs i am supposed to use are PN# 85
14mm thread, 9.5mm reach.
Plugs I removed were PN#36 and dicontinued. replaced with 46
18mm thread, 11.6mm reach. Also the 46 series plugs were for Ford Applications
Any gear heads out there have any idea why these plugs would of been used?
also want know know if there is a valid reason why the PCV vacuum shouldnt be connected from the head to the carburators PCV vacuum port?

You need plugs to match the cylinder heads. I don't know for certain which head casting you are running but if they are truly double hump early style heads (291's for example) the 85's should be good. A head casting number would help nail it down.

Sounds like whoever built the motor did a reasonable job of matching the components. Match the plugs to the heads and compression ratio. Normally aspirated SBCs are very forgiving with plugs.
As far as the PCV, it has two purposes: across the board it will lower the positive pressure of ring blowby in the crankcase and under higher vacuum conditions it helps the rings seal better.
