Default Continental N62 Carburetor Suggestions

I am slowly making progress with my '47 Clark Trucloader and am at a crossroads. This machine was converted to propane somewhere along the line, and long story short I am thinking of going back to gasoline. There have been many discussions about the benifits of propane, but assuming we dont revisit them I could use some carburetor advice. It has a continental N62 engine and it seems there are multiple gasoline carbs that will bolt up to it. Is there anything I need to be looking for specifically? Some I've seen are updraft from the bottom and some have intake air coming horizontally in the side of the carb. Any advice on what to look for?
