Get a dual plane off a old 327 and use a carter carb.
The edelbrock C3BX is right out of that era.
So is the Weiand 8016

The Street master is a 70's disco era intake manifold.

60's was solid lifter cams dual planes and dual quads.

You will need to recuve the distributor. bigger valve lash ='s more 60's era solid cam sound.
smaller valve lash ='s rougher idle.
do not go looser on the valve lash than +.006" looser
than the crane cam card spec. you can go up to .012" tighter on the lash.
the lash spec is .022" hot. so,,, you can vary that from .028" to .010" and get a different sound from the cam.
This will not harm the cam or your motor. but will adjust the idle sound to your liking.
adjust the valve lash once a year.
Cool - thanks for the tip on the old school intake & cam
