I need to find out what the bolt center is on the baseplate of a 51 Chrysler 6 Cyl carb

Did you figure things out Steve?
 
Do you not have the manifold it bolts onto?  It's a 2 bolt base plate right?  Could you not get the measurements form the manifold?

OK  I got the carb kit today.  4 bucks  what a deal
 
The base plate on the 251 1 BBL is 2 3/4 center.  That adaptor is 2 /5/8.  I can drift the holes with an end mill in my drill press.
 
But ultimately, if this doesn't get too expensive, I am buying this

You could get a stock dual carb set-up on some of the heavy duty trucks in that area with the bigger flatty 6's as well.
 
I bet she'll sell for close to $200....

I'll go the 200 and no more.  Not too may lookers and it hasn't moved in days.  Maybe they're being sharp shoppers
