I was having technical difficulties with the IPad
 
Corey. .  A total of 5.
 
In order that I'll want them. . .
 
TQ and the AFB  I'll need them in the spring
Then the Eddie for the 68
And then the 2 for the H. 
 
I have a kit for the Eddie, I need a kit for the AFB.s and the TQ.  It's a 76 440 TQ.  That's going on the 62.  The AFB came from the 62, but will stay with the 65.  The Eddie, I have no clue.  I bought it from a docker years ago.
 
I can do them, but I figured you could use the money

Quote from: POLARACO
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.
 
My 73 Imp came standard with the TQ + spreadbore intake. The performer intake, although advertised as "stock replacement" is quite a bit higher. Depending on what you want to put on top of the intake, it can give clearance issues on some cars (dont ask how I know )

I cant tell for sure as the car is gone, but as i remember it  was about an inch higher.It gave me clearance issues with a propane-carb I built with a TQ-throttlebody+adapter+Impco 425. I had to replace it with a Holley baseplate + Impco 425.

For the sale of the car, I converted the car to gasoline, and the Edelbrock 1411 carb fit without any problems on top of a thermal gasket.

The AFB is pretty much the same as far as adjustments go, stepped needles and jets-wise, the videos will help with the tuning of the needles. The Thermoquad is what would equate to the spreadbore carbs, small primaries, large secondaries, and a vacuum butterfly on the secondaries adjustable for vacuum operating of the secondaries.

It is a 600cfm (1406), the other number, a part number/production number and not needed.
 
This link will give you way more information than you will ever need, but very informative.

No problem. I like the AFBs and Edelbrocks for more stock applications, Holleys are easier to rebuild, blueprint, and tune as far as I am concerned, too.

The Eddy is not a copy of the AFB, but the AVS.

OOOPS. Too many different letters, but you are right, talking late 50s through early 60s on the AVS, had one on a 62 Cadillac, stock.

I prefer the AFB but the only way to have one is to buy an old one and hope it's good enough to rebuild.
