Default Re: Unusual carburation on Flathead V8ís

The only good thing that came out of this whole thing is that when I was running the numbers on a couple of Quadrajets I had to get the proper kits, I found out one was from a 1979 390 HP 454 Corvette. I sold it on eBay for $400 (matching numbers Corvette guys). It was the best core I had; I was reduced to using a core from a very dirty '75 Oldsmobile; I don't know if it was my deficit in rebuilding it or just a bad core.

I am going to get back into this some day, but I think one of the posters above was right; the next time I dive into this I am going to make an adapter that hast four individual throttle bores instead of the open plenum I originally used.
