    Working on my 62 C-10 and I've noticed an intake gasket leak... So off it goes... (327 SBC)
    So I'm Looking at the truck and I just don't like the intake and Carb... Flat stock intake with a quadrajet, quadrajet needs rebuilt...
    I remember working on a Holley 4000, teapot which I always thought was an awesome design, but do they run good on a SBC?
    Also any good intakes and it carbs that would look good? There's just so much room for activities!!!

    Bored with the over used Offy's & Eddy's Tripowers? Just finished this rare Creitz dual 4, converted it a Tripower with the small base Rochesters.......................

  5. What are your requirements?
    -Low ET over MPG or vice versa?
    -How much are you willing to spend?
    -Period-correct 1962 or?
    -Do you need something now, or do you have time to search at swap meets/E-Bay/etc?

    Holley teapot (towering inferno)? On a Chebby? Really?

    There have been on number of threads on here over the years about this same subject, and it seems to me that the majority conclusion is that unless you are doing something unusual, you can't beat a quadrajet.

    You cannot beat an RPM air gap and Edelbrock carb or Holley of appropriate cfm for street performance on a mild sbc mill. Kinda boring, yes. The triple deuces look cool as hell. More fiddling to get it dialed in.

    Edelbrock C4B with either a 600 or 650 Holley vacuum secondary carb, [HASHTAG]#1850[/HASHTAG]. It's a nice, simple, and trouble free setup. It's era correct for the 1960's, and easy to find too.

    For my 59 GMC, I went with the Pontiac equivalent.......An Edelbrock P4B with a 600 vacuum secondary Holley on a 326 Pontiac V8.

    Not my stuff. but I couldn't resist jerking him a little.
    Actually, if I was going to build a race type car in the near future, I wouldn't mind having that manifold.
     
  15. LOL Its just a carb and even a gas soaked sponge will work in a pinch. :D

    I am running a Holley Contender and a Carter AFB on my small block. The Contender is hard to come by and I think it was replaced by the Weiand Stealth, which is a pretty good intake for street motor as modern intakes go.

    If you can find one the L-79 intake is a good vintage intake. A small Holley bolts right on one and they make a good combo. 600 CFM and vac secondaries work real well on a stock to mild 327.

    The quadrajunk is a good carb but they are a pain in the ass to work on. I wouldn't toss one for that reason, but the holley is easier to work on if someone is set bon buying a different carb.

    All that said I am taking donations for my current hot rod project and I really like that setup that @GearheadsQCE posted if someone wants to step up. :D Hey what is that intake anyway. :confused:

    When you open your hood it's a mile & a half down just to see the motor, you need an intake/carb set up that fills the "VOID" so to speak! JMO

    Is this full enough? its pretty hard to fill a C10 with a small block. LOL

    Jim McFarland was quite the innovator - mostly circle track - this manifold was called the Tork Link and was meant to give a car extra punch out of the corners....he eventually sold the patterns and someone else made em for a while - I ran across one at a swap a couple of years ago for $30....I thought it looked neat and bought it - when I got it home and realized what it was I put it on ebay and got $330 - a nice profit (even after the fees) to buy more stuff I needed....

    I recently bought a box of carbs on CR and there was a Holley 4165 in the mix. It is a spreadbore with mechanical secondaries and double pumps. It seems to have all of the best features of the Q-jet and Holley designs. Probably would work well with a mid rise dual plane on a 327.
     
  22. Wish I did. As soon as I find another one I'm scooping it up. If I find two I'll let ya know.

    I have seen several dyno tests where a C355B and trips has run virtually neck and neck with a performer RPM on mild small-blocks, just a little food for thought. I would go Rochesters instead of three bolts.
    If I were going to use an RPM, I would go with the regular RPM (or a Holley 300-36 or Z-28 intake) over an air gap on a mild motor, due to the cut down plenum divider in the air gap. But then a full plenum divider calls for a bigger carb, and we all know how the HAMB feels about that.

    ^^This would be my personal pick for a mild, daily driver sbc...or the tripps, if you wanted the "look".
