Question Edelbrock 1407 onto stock 350 intake?

Allrighty then. Went for another little wheel today, broke another little Q-Jet today as well.

Time for a new carb.

My question is, will the SQUARE BORE 1407 bolt directly onto the stock intake of the 350?

I read in another forum that the stock intakes are drilled and have holes to mount both square bore and spread bore carbs. Just wanting some confirmation on this.

Thanks.

I am well aware of the fact that the 4x4 Q-Jets are much better offroad than any street carb, Edelbrock or not. I won't be wheeling this truck until it gets an engine swap and it's built, so off-camber function doesn't matter. This will be my winter truck for now.

I've heard good and bad things about both Edelbrock and Holley; not all the cons are due to people's brand loyalty, some carb's suck.

What Holley are you steering me towards, the Truck Avenger?

Back to the question, does anyone else know the answer?

It'll fit if you get an adaptor plate.

And just how do you manage to "break" another Q-jet?

Get the flat (thin) gold adapter plate from Edelbrock for less than $10. Do not get the thick aluminum tapered adapter, they bring the suck. And yes it will bolt on yor manifold. If you don't use the plate, it will suck the gasket in and you will have a vacuum leak.

For a 350, a 1450 600 cfm would be all you need. I'm "brand loyal" to Holleys because they work, they're easy to adjust, there is a massive support base for parts, and, did I mention they work?

Thanks GM guy, that's the answer I was looking for. I know that Lordco has the plate you're talking about, so I;ll get it when I go grab the carb.

And just how do you manage to "break" another Q-jet?

Thanks GM guy, that's the answer I was looking for.
The first Q-Jet's housing broke, sucked air, wore the throttle shaft's bushings out completely. As a temporary fix, I threw a used Q-Jet from a Jimmy on the engine, went well, but after about 3 weeks, the throttle shaft bushings are gone again; just old age.

Thanks again

I doubt I'll ever run another gasoline vehicle, besides the Sambar, but if I do, I'll try the Holley

Ok then.

We got the 1407 all bolted/plumbed in, plus new valve cover gaskets.

Haven't started it yet, but will report back once it's running.

Fired right up after a couple cranks.

After letting it warm up and setting the idle we went for a little rip.

I love it, so far.

When it digs into the secondaries it lights up the rears in second

Since this will be a winter/DH shuttle truck, I am excited about the manual choke over the Quadrajunk's electric choke. Having the ability to choke it to any point on start-up makes cold starts and warm up that much faster.

The adapter plate came with all the gaskets, as did the carb, so I have a spare.

Thanks everyone.
