    I've got a 4bbl intake on a 232 if anyone needs it... could swap for a half decent C-Cab seat...

    Pretty soon unaltered late (low) 2bbl manifolds will become the rarity!!

    Jeff,
    Hoping maybe you will see this. Sent you a PM with pictures of the manifolds on tuesday and there has been no responce since. Perhaps somehow attaching a picture to a PM made it disapear into cyberspace, and you never got the PM's. I don't know if you got it or not. Or if by some reason you have decided you don't want the manifolds, please let me know. Thanks Heather

    No adapter needed*

    * If you are using a modern AFB with a Stude A/T, the GM kickdown linkage piece on the AFB carb that hangs down below the throotle shaft needs to be trimmed at the fold seam so the throttle shaft arm will clear the heat crossover part of the intake casting.

    Some Stude applications are height sensitive for hood clearance, so every little bit helps.

    I'll make room in the truck for them Jeff.

    Seems like all I've done this year is haul intakes across the country for you. <grin>

    That's kind of what I thought. I know that they are all SBC's. Would this then refer to the 259's? I may look at this option for the 60 if so.

    by late model, are we talking 65-66? how much does it cost to convert a 2 to a 4? I never knew it was possible

    But wait- I have not sent Heather your (or the other folk's) contact info yet...
    Good score Jeff!!!

    If I thought Dad could haul them home in his luggage--
    I'd have done the deal an hour ago.

    A family member has at least half a dozen of the late 2bbl ones if the person doing the 4bbl conversion is looking for cores and will be at South Bend, or have somebody pick them up on their behalf. Price is $10 each delivered to South Bend.

    If the person doing these conversions sees this, or somebody knows who it is, shoot me a PM and I will put you in contact.
