    I bought this years ago for $75.00. There is no casting numbers, marks or anything on it. By looking at pictures I have found I believe it to be Edelbrock. Any help would be great.

  2. Could be a "house" brand maybe. Summit, Jegs, Speedway,etc. That's my guess.

    See that oval shape between the carb pads? My guess is Offenhauser.

    Yep, old Offy for a sbf. I have exactly that same manifold on the sbf in my 27, it has the same adapter plates and all. Good manifold, I'm running two 600 cfm Edelbrocks on mine, but ran two Carter afb's on it for the first 20 years of it's life.

    Here is a better look at mine.

    Other than being ford it pretty closley resembles the offy I have for my SBC. I had to buy spacers for mine the carb linkeage wouldn't clear.

    COOL! Thanks for the help!

    Now I need to start looking some carbs and linkage.

    Don - what cam did you run? (love the look of your engine) and did you build the headers?

    Same here, Beaner. If you look under the one carb in the bottom picture you will see a 1 inch spacer on that one. Putting it in there gives enough clearance for the linkage and also seems to insulate the carbs a little better from engine heat.

    Thanks. My engine is a 331 stroker roller cam motor so I am running a Ford Racing X303 cam. My Son is running the same cam in his T Bucket with a 306 Ford in it. I like it so much I am going to run the same cam in the 366 Ford I am building for my Mustang daily driver.

    Headers are Limefires by Sanderson. Believe it or not, they are over 20 years old, one of the first sets they built for sbf engines. They have held up great for all those years with no cracking or any sealing issues.

    Beaner is right, when you get your carbs and linkage you will find you need some 1 inch spacers, but Pep Boys and everyone else carries them.

    Yeah, it's a little lumpy, but it pulls like gangbusters from 1500 to 7000. :D

    It sure was. IMO Ford Racing really did their homework on that series of cams. I know the hardcore Mustang guys have a lot of other brands they swear by, but dollar for dollar the X cams are really good.
