    I know the top is a 97 but what's the base. All the 97s I see then base is not pointed. Bore size 1.187. Is this something that works together? [​IMG]

    They had both styles of bases. Gary
     
  3. What you are describing is the "Body" not the top..and all 97s have the 3-bolt base

    Yes it's just that this base is different from other 97s. The PO put a lot of things together on this build that are not completely right but useable. It seems that everything needs to be tweaked to work right.

    The 1-1 above the big 97 indicates the later replacement model 97.
    More than likely says Elmira instead of South Bend on the opposite side of bowl.
    These also have smaller idle airbleeds, adjacent to the idle jets and a third idle squirter in the base. The venturis are notched to fit around the squirters.
    It's not a good idea to use the 1-1 bodies on the "D" shaped bases unless you enlarge the highspeed airbleeds.

    here's a photo to show a side by side comparison.

    I have four of the newer style that appear to be new old stock. it looks like they never had gas in them. I never thought to look whether they have south bend on the side or Elmira. they both have EE-1 on the bases.
    I plan on using the four matching carbs on my wc4d going on my 283. do you think that's wise?
