    alright..my buddy has my old K5 and when i had it, i had and edelbrock performer carb on top of a performer manifold.. well lets skip what happened to that carb.. but now he bought a holley truck avenger, and i was just wandering if anybody else had mounted a holley carb on and edelbrock performer series manifold, and if so, do you have any tips on what to look for in changes from the edelbrock carb?

    It should be pretty much bolt on. I have a Holley 3310 on a Performer RPM manifold. You will need to sort out the throttle and kick down (if required) cables and fuel line. But you would have to do that with an Edelbrock carb too.

    The Performer is a dual bolt pattern intake so it will accept both spread and square bore carbs. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    If you are putting a square flange(all 4 barrels the same size) holley carb on a spreadbore edelbrock intake, you NEED to use a spacer. It's a thin piece of steel and a couple gaskets. The Edelbrock Part # is 2732. My old price sheet shows it to be 7.00. This is needed to prevent carb gasket leaks on the secondaries since the bores are such different sizes. Other than that, you might need a new throttle linkage stud, depending on whats on the carb now. most holley carbs come with an assortment of studs with the carb.

    yea thats what i figured.. we allready got the adapter/spacer plate..it needed that regardless to clear some stuff in the back...thats a pretty big carb.. and we set it on top of that and i noticed that the bracket that holds the throttle cable onto the manifold was gonna have to be changed..well thanks guys
