yeah I know its street carb but quality is important since its not for gasoline, The Carb will get will be already rebuilt for the E85, ofcourse is this not enough for us so we will disassemble, I guess the rebuild kit will be better quality since made for E85

From what I hear Ethanol is hard on gaskets.. also I'm sure you need to jet up quite a bit since ethanol has less energy in Ethanol meaning you need t burn more...

Yes its true about the jets it will need more 20% 30% fuel but does not mean that much consumption , my friend converted his VW Golf to 100% E85 by making new jets for carb
as for gaskets this is  not really true, they are confusing with Methanol, or gaskets are already old or bad

In the 85% alcohol and 15% gas, I'm indeed 20-30% saving but its not only about money, the car is running faster and engine is quieter smoother, Octane is 105, no extra consumption on highway driving!

 You mean some of those boat anchors are good for something besides handing out hernias?

I finally got a clear answer from Eherenberg.  He suggested that manifold over the pre 74 because it is made to accomodate the the TQ.   The aftermarket manifolds mentioned earlier are slightly better.  But for the buck, this is the clossest thing to the performer.
 
He suggested it because he was appealing to the Hobbystien side of me.

We own Mopars, not Chevys.   
 
Corey, I was thinking of sending out to you to rebuild.  Going on the 62 413.  I have an edelbrock I have to identify for CFM.  If it will work in the 65 413, I'll do that.  I have an AFB I need done for the 68 Fury.  And I have 2 Holley's. . .   Do I get a quantity discount?
