Spacer needed for AMC 360 intake??? WHICH ONE DO I USE

I have an 360 that I want to put a 2" spacer under the 1406 Edelbrock carb and not sure which one to purchase? The intake has two large openings and two smaller openings on it and I am wondering if I can use a spacer that has one large opening or should I get a spacer to match exactly the intake opening? Thanks in advanced for any help.


Joe

You have a dual plenum intake. The spacer you have is for a open plenum. I would use a dual plenum spacer to coincide with the manifold.

This is for square bore carb to 4-hole Q-Jet intake. Has curved small to large runners to help smooth the transition & align ports correctly.

Just wanted to post the latest information I have found out. This intake is a rare intake that will only fit a Motorcraft carb. There is no spacer availible to retro fit a different carb at all. So I am looking for an intake for a AMC 360 now. Hope this information helps someone else out before they get everything installed and find this out as I have done.

You sure that no other carb like either a square bore Holley-type else a spread bore won't fit?

If you can, post a picture of the manifold or measure the bolt pattern and throttle bores and post.

Everything I have read about this intake states only the Motorcraft carb will fit. I will try to take some pics and post them.

If you don't mind spending about $50, get p/n TRD-2199 from TD performance. It allows a standard pattern square bore Holley, etc. to fit onto your "odd" manifold.

More here.

Edelbrock also has an adapter like the one you stated however the intake has a "mickey mouse" looking set of holes in it. Two large ones and the two smaller ones are more to the inside and not centered from the large holes. I will try to post pics so you can see it. I haven't found an adapter anywhere of that nature. I said screw it and bought a Edelbrock performer intake tonight.

You mean you have a different bolt pattern than the one shown in the link I provided above??? It is not just another square bore to spread bore adaptor that's shown. It mates a square bore carb to the oddball Motorcraft intake flange.

AFAIK, Edel. doesn't sell an adapter for a square bore carb to the oddball Motorcraft-pattern manifold.

But this is all moot if you bought a decent manifold, which I would have done in the first place. You won't regret it, once your wallet recovers.

That OEM intake is good as an anchor, IMO, and little more. Same for the OEM carb.

Good luck!

I know that this is an old thread but there is some information that has to be corrected here. The original AMC 4-barrel Ford Spread-bore manifold that came stock on many AMC V8's was and still is a great manifold with great breathing and is probably better than any replacement Edelbrock Performer that you can get, although heavier. The problem is that there seems to be no one that makes one adapter that goes directly from Ford Spread Bore to Chevy Spread Bore but it can and has been done with two spacers. The Trans Dapt TRD-2199 will go Ford Spread Bore to Holley Square-bore and then a Trans Dapt TRD-2034 goes from HolleySquare Bore to the Quadrajet, the best "cheap" carb for off-roading but it takes a bit to get it there. The manifolds are still in demand by Jeep off-roaders so don't discard it, look to sell it on www.IFSJA.org and you might get a bite.
