View Full Version : 2 x 2 intake

I bought a new repo 2 x 2 intake for the Ute sometime ago and a few WW backdraft carbs. I figured I was pretty happy with that set up until I saw this original STU-V at the Hovander Stude Show today...

Too cool to pass up [8D]


It's for an early V8 (no end hold down bolts), but I can live with that. In fact, it's even cooler with the early long manifold clamps (IMHO).


Soooo....does anybody need a new Stone aluminum 2x2 intake with a couple of backdraft WWs? $350 plus shipping.

:) That's pretty cool, Dick; I've never seen one of those! I'm now trying to figure out how you get a hot-air choke tube to that right-side carb without having it run into the linkage for the left-side carb![:0] :DBP

Wouldn't only one of those carbs have the ckock hooked up ?

Looks tight [^]. I doubt if I'll run chokes. I didn't on S2D for 10 years and 35,000 miles. No problem. Not as if I live in Indiana or someplace like that where it gets cold ;).

With the carb air horns facing the sides, you have a fighting chance of running air cleaners at least. It's impossible with the backdraft WW's in line.

A guy at the meet yesterday had the same setup WITH the STU-V finned aluminum air cleaner adapter to a stock air cleaner...

:) That [u]is</u> cute, Dick. I see he isn't running chokes of any kind, unless he has a manual choke hidden somewhere. Ditto a Battery Hold-Down![:0];) :DBP

Gosh Dick, You find the neatest stuff. I'll bet with the rarity of that intake and carbs, the air box is like finding hen's teeth. Bet your contacts could make one similiar out of Stainless steel and adapt a neat stainless or aluminum custom air cleaner. I think I'm jealous. That'll look great on the ute. Bob

...or maybe just 2 small air cleaners.

I'm tempted to take you up on it, Dick, just for the carbs! What condition are yours in?

Yeah but...they would not look nearly as cool sitting sideways, as a flat mounted air cleaner! [^]

One problem with the LS dual deuce intake (when used with side inlet carbs) is the air cleaner issue.
There just isn't enough room between the air horn and the other carb to put an air cleaner of any sort on there...
A screen maybe...

Nuthin' is impossible, but it would take some work to get it right..
http://inlinethumb22.webshots.com/12885/1226885985038087468S600x600Q85.jpg
(and this concept would never work on a '53-'55 hood setup.
I love that air inlet setup in that pic...
Way retro, and good looking.
Form follows function.

Howdy Dick, check out the vintage aircleaner on the STU-V in my collection. http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l11/studemaker/CIMG0361.jpg Heres a closeup of the milled ribbing. I am guessing that this probably constituted about 90% of all aircleaner setups in the day, home built. I like you also like the early clamps, these have been chromed, and look great!

On second thought, I got a bunch of WW backdrafts from Joe Robert's son and I think I'll hang on to all of them until I'm sure the Ute is running good. So JUST the Stone repop 2 x 2 manifold is for sale at this time.

It's new...never installed. Aluminum. I've deburred it. I think the one Jeff shows is the same (only Jeff's is highly polished).

$250 plus shipping. I think Stone gets $300 for them.

Nifty [8D]...and I think that type of air cleaner will work fine on the back draft style carbs also.

Thanks for the pictures, Dick. You're doing sorta what I was gonna do~
I've already got a Weiand 2x2 intake, but I have no carbs or linkage to go with it... [:0] [B)] [xx(] [V]

Here's a question for the masses~ do these intakes have to use those rear draft, backdraft, or whatever you may call them (they have many names [:o)]) carbs, or would carbs from later models work as well [?] [?] [?]
I've been thinking about going this route on "Ruby's" motor, you see.

Any Stromberg WW will work....in fact I think the early Rochester 2G carbs have the same bolt pattern.

I don't know who Ruby is, but the 2 x 2 was an early to mid 50's thing. Bigger 4 barrels dual quads and tri powers replaced the 2 x 2 by the late 50's.
