    I'm about to take a shower and drive 40 miles into town.. My ebrock's fuel inlet is definitely gonna hit the stock air cleaner. I know somebody on here suggested a banjo fitting.. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE SUCESSFULLY USED A BANJO FITTING WITH AN EDELBROCK CARB, WAS THAT CARB MANUAL CHOKE????????? It kinda looks like its gonna hit the bracket that holds the choke cable. If it will work, I'll pick up a banjo fitting at the parts store today.. if not, I guess I need to make a spacer for my air cleaner housing.

    If anybody has a part # for the banjo fitting that will work with my e brock performer, I would be forever greatful... hopefully this will get a few hits in the 20 mintues it takes me to shower, then I'm gone :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:
    Thanks,
    James

    Well I'm guessing it's too late. Anyway, hopefully you found a knowledgeable parts guy, but probably not. I don't see why the banjo fitting wouldn't work for the manual choke, that's just not how edelbrock designs things. For the most part, their carb parts are "one fits all".

    Assuming you are using an open element air cleaner rather than stock just get a 1" spacer between the air cleaner and carb. Any chain auto parts store should carry them.

    I have a banjo and manual choke - no problems here - banjo rotates to any orientation needed

    Bought a spacer...

    As many of you probably know, the stock air cleaner housing has some kinda indention that would prohibit it from sealing very well against the spacer, so I'm gonna have to use some slicone, RVT, or JB weld to seat this bad boy against my carb.

    I guess this will work ok..
