In need of info - 460 intake for thermoquad

Cannot find a picture, casting # info, or pretty much anything about it.
I have a project (not truck related) that I think this would be perfect for.

I am in need of one of these intakes as well.
Got one to sell? PM me, please.

Thanks

You're talking about a Carter Thermoquad such as the 60s-70s Mopars used?

I know that my 1971 429 had a square-bore intake manifold on it, but it was cast iron.

What are you trying to accomplish?

Many of the Lincoln 460s used Rochester Quadrajet carbs, those manifolds would be spreadbore like you need. If you want a spreadbore carb, I would highly recommend the Q-jet over the Thermoquad. The phonelic (sp?) body of the T-quad warped and leaked a lot.

I have read that the thermoquad was a california item.

Thunderbirds and trucks, maybe some others.

I have the TQ carb. Ford #D4AE-BC
Now, I need the intake. I think it's D4VE-B1B. ??

I shoehorned a 429 into my 67 cougar, but I have to run a low profile
intake, for hood clearance. Currently using and AFB. (not an E-brock)
Runs great, but I want to try out that phenolic bowl.

The 74 California 460s used a Carter Thermoquad which is a little different bolt pattern than a Quadrajet. The only 385 series engines I ever saw with a Q-jet were the 429CJ engines in the Torinos and Montegos. They were iron manifolds. I have one of the CA spec TQs, it showed up in my shop one day and the guy who had it wanted $25 for it, I still have it. Good luck on an intake.

Wow, I did not know that. I have only seen TQs on big-block Chrysler products.

Would a TQ fit on a '78 460 cast-iron stock manifold? They came with the Motorcraft spreadbore carb.

I think from what I remember that the 4300D, TQ and Qjet were all just a little bit different. I believe the 4300D and TQ bolt patterns were the same, but the bore spacing/ locations and size were different. Best bet would be to see if you can find mounting gaskets for the two and match them.

Thermoquad bolt patterns

Thermoquads and Quadrajets share the same bolt pattern, but not the same base gasket, the Thermoquad is unique in its base gasket, and you will have a vacuum leak if you use a q-jet gasket on the tq. The tq is a great carb when working properly, producing good fuel mileage and torque without sacrificing top end power when you want it.

The one I have would need rebuilding as it has been sitting for a number of years. I can get some pictures of it if the weather ever improves.

I haven't been able to locate it. The one TQ I saw, turned out to be a MOPAR version. If I still have it, it is probably buried under something else.
