Anyone running an aftermarket carb on stock intake?
#1
Is anyone running an Edelbrock or a Holley carb on the stock spread bore manifold? I was thinking of making the change for better driveability. What is required for such a change. Will the stock air cleaner fit? I do want to keep the original so I can change it back later if I want to.

I had a quick fuel on my stock intake and everything still fit. I don't think you will have any problems with the edelbrock.

Tell ya what. With the internet search I just did I'd be willing to bet Hemikiller can hook you up with exactly what your going to need. Call it a hunch. Rolleyes

Unfortunately the spreadbore Ford intake is an animal all it's own.

Best thing you can do is pull the stocker and replace it with a D1ZX aluminum or a D0AE iron unit. The X will take up to an 850 Holley, the E will take a 600 as is, up to the 850 with a 1/2" spacer so the throttle plates clear the casting.

If you don't mind going non-stock, the Blue Thunder dual plane is the katz meow.....

edelbrocks performer rpm Air gap is a really good intake also except if you have ram Air you won't be able to use it. There is a lot of misconceptions also about the air gap because it is advertised for 2v heads. But if you read the description it does mention that it will fit on 4v heads no problem. I have 4v closed chamber heads and the air gap works great.

But wasn't the question about carbsTongue

Thanks to all for your input. I was hoping to use the stock aluminum intake. I called Edelbrock and they told me they have nothing for the spread bore manifold and no adaptor plates. I contacted Jegs and was reccomended a Holley 08050S with a new dual fuel line and adaptor plate. This is a 750 cfm carb. They said this will work with my stock air cleaner.

Trans Dapt PN 2199 may work for you. It is listed for a 460 Ford But, it looks like it would work on spread bore Cleveland intakes with or without EGR. Chuck

I had a freind with a 72 Q code that tried to run 600 Holley on the spread bore intake. The motor ran, thats about all I can say about that.Really hurt the car! I would think there is a carb guru out there that could get you the drive ability and performance out of that factory carb? That is a 750 cfm on you HO right? Have you talked to Pony Carbs maybe? Just thinking out loud.

That is another option. I will see what they have to say. I have put rebuild kits in it myself a few times and still sometimes have fuel bowl overflowing at times as well as starvation at other times. Mostly it runs fine, but not always. I would like to take it on a road trip this Fall and need it to be reliable. Thanks for all the replies.
