The TH400 was used behind some pretty stout big blocks from the factory. I don't think I'd worry too much about it being behind a warmed-over 350.

Does this intake have any name or numbers on it?

At the bottom of the page on this link is a diagram showing how to measure the height of your intake manifold. The figures that are shown in the diagram are for a standard low-rise Performer intake manifold. Measure your intake and post the figures, then we can determine the rpm range.....

Thanks techinspector1!
It's about 10 degrees in the shop right now but I need to head out and warm it up for another project anyway. I read the instructions and I should be able to measure it and post the results in a little while. It has a one inch spacer on it. Not sure whether or not that will stay. I'll measure it and add an inch on both ends or 1/2 over-all and post both measurements-with and without.
I mentioned having a Cloyes double roller that has the option to be mounted either retarded or advanced. I have the cover off but haven't looked yet to see how it was set up. I'm considering using the slot for the key-way that's for advanced. Any ideas?

Got it! My highrise is 4 7/8 without the 1" spacer and 5 3/8 with according to the link. And there were some numbers scattered around on the thing as well. I may just zoom in and post some pictures if I bring it in tonight (gotta sneak it past the wife).
And vinniekq2 ... guys from my generation were never confused as to whether it was politically correct to "retard" our timing. But, if it offends you ... then you haven't been in many garages with red-necks a'drinkin' and a' buildin' them thar trucks n tractors.

99 times out of 100, you're better off to install the cam straight up, neither retarded nor advanced. What I advise is that if you intend to play with the cam timing, you should make allowances for it in your build. Here's the cover I recommend.....

Then, use a bolt-on timing tab based on the diameter of your damper.....

While you're doing that, verify the TDC mark with this tutorial....

You'll want to drill your cam gear oversize to 0.40625" and use the desired bushing to retard or advance the cam timing.....
