Thanks again for the info

The intake was designed and produced by EDELBROCK. They did the development and testing, not FOMOCO. That explains the difference(s) between that manifold and the later two developed by different manufacturers.

The reason for the carb pad placement was for first design carb type usage. Had EDEL been given instructions to use the H-D-4, the arrangement may have been different.
