Started cleaning the intake I had then a buddy of mine texted me wondering what intake I was using so I told him and sent him picture. Turns out I have a spread bore intake and the carbs for that are super expensive so I decided that I am going to buy an Edelbrock performer aluminum intake for a square bore dual plane. Trying to decide if I want to just say screw it and buy heads which will put the engine build in next spring\summer before I can have it finished.

Have you thought about a phenolic spacer/adapter to go from a square bore carb to the spread bore manifold? A lot cheaper than buying a new manifold and it will help keep some of the heat out of the carb.

I never heard of something like that but after looking at the price of it I think that may be a really good option.

He's right that is a great option, and you can still get a new intake down the road if you want

Update on carb info. So as of right now after making a discussion on the intake in the bullnose part of the forum I am going to try and see weather or not the carb spacer will work otherwise I will have to get a new intake. The reason for this is if I buy an adapter then it raises the carb so high that the kick down rod will bind.

I am hoping to order the carb on pay day but funds are going to get even tighter now so this build may come to a slow down again. Hopefully I can get the engine moved to my storage unit soon since it is in the dining room right now.

So far have two of the four ports ported on one head and 2 1\2 of the thermactor bumps ground out. Still have to clean the other head. Been taking longer then I wanted. Next the heads get sent to the machine shop to have 3 bolts removed.

So some more updates air cleaner, Valve covers, valve cover bolts by arp, intake bolts by arp valve cover breather, and motor mounts are all ordered. Painted the intake also. Installed the new temp sender.
Taking the heads to the machine shop tomorrow.
