I recently bought a used edelbrock torker 2 intake manifold for a 454 that I am building. When I went to install it, I noticed that the fitting seems off. The manifold appears to not cover a hole that appears to be a coolant port. Does this look normal or is something wrong? Thanks for the help!

The 1972 - 1979 Pontiacs have a similar hole above the carburetor heat passage from the center cylinders. The hole serves as a heat insulator from the exhaust passage. It supposedly helps to prevent the cylinder head from getting red hot in the area above the passage and burning and coking the oil that is splashing around inside of the valve covers.

That doesn't look right.There is nowhere for the bolts to go.
