    As a side note...
    I can make sure you have hood clearance issues on your Stude (with an Offy intake), too

    The old Offy has a narrower square bolt pattern than the narrow AFB/wcfb.
    The bores really need opening up, and a good radius done to make them work decent.
    Port matching helps too.
    Adapter plates will work, but it will choke the throttle bores down, and if the adapter plate is too thick, the 'stack up' height can cause hood clearance issues on some Stude's.
    The corners need holes drilled in them and a flat surface milled for the corner hold down bolts.

    And the Offy can be prettied up, too!

    As far as that goes, aren't most Edelbrocks still drilled for the Carter WCFB pattern as well? All the older manifolds usually need is just clearancing the secondary bores for the larger butterflies. I've done it with a Dremel.

    If it's a Studebaker-Offenhauser intake, it shoudn't need any machining, just a simple adapter plate to change the hold down stud pattern.

    A while back, I posted need help on machining my intake manifold. I had someone out their who could machine and port my intake. He has a yellow prewar truck. I think it is a yellow coupe express. Can you email me your phone number our email address. I want to send you my intake. I have a Offy that I need to fit on my 1964 full flow block. Roy
