I need some advice. While restoring the 69' sweet 16 with a 351, it was pointed out that the wrong intake manifold & carb. was used, hence the cover doesn't close all the way. Can someone tell me what carb. & manifold I should get?
Thank you

351 BB or Small Block?

When I put my Stealth manifold on, it was about 3/8" too tall. I shortened it a little by cutting the mesh down a little. Didn't hurt the performance, and no more hitting...

my 351w just fit under the hatch of my 67 16( which was rigged by holman moody) it needs low clearance dist cap and flame arrestor it was much lower and wider than a stock flame arrestor. what intake is on it now?

My old 1970 ski sporter 351 just fit as well, stock intake, new 650 Holley and stock flame arrestor.

that is even tighter than mine. my 351 had a short intermediate housing( bell housing to transom housing) so my engine was further back. My dist cap was not tucked under the back bulkhead like yours . but everything else was about the same.
