Carb Adapter Options

Post  96Mustang460cid on March 14th 2012, 6:59 pm

I need to buy a dominater flange (intake) to 4150 carb adapter. I looked on Summit Racing's website and seen a couple options. I bet there are better brands/options available, but don't know where to look for the. I would prefer one that's less than 2" tall.

Suggestions?

Have a good day!

Okay, guys, I've done some more lookin' around online and found a couple options:

1) HVH Super Sucker -- http://www.ebay.com/itm/190640557071?_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649&item=190640557071&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWAX:IT&vxp=mtr
2) Wilson -- http://www.wilsonmanifolds.com/products/spacers/carburetor-adapters/4150-to-4500-adapter.html

Something else that crossed my mind was using a nitrous plate. This would allow a simple approach to water injection. Does anybody know of a plate that will fit a 4150 carb on a 4500 manifold flange?

Micheal,

Both of those adapters that you provided links to, are 1.5" thick. I think you were wanting something thinner. Check with Quick Fuel Technology, I believe they may have something thinner. No sir, I do not make those carb adapters.

What intake manifold...?
Most intakes can be modified to accept BOTH carbs; then use whatever spacer you like between the carb and manifold.

Of course it will cost more than a normal adapter.

I'm using an older Ford Motorsports A460 manifold. I looked at that, but my untrained eyes weren't sure it'd work well. I didn't know how the dominator shape on the intake's flange would affect performance and carb signal with a 4150 bolted to it.

Is that considered a good approach?

Have a good day!

A "good" approach is to use the right intake for the job.
That is the best alternative.

Yes, I agree, but I didn't know a 4150 intake existed for A460 cylinder heads. After reading your post, I looked on a few websites (Trickflow, BFEvans, Summit, Google, ect) and didn't see any. If you know of one, please point me in the right direction. If one doesn't exist, then I'm still stuck trying to figure out how to make best use of my current parts (mismatched as they might be scratch ).

Have a good day!

just fill the existing holes with threaded alum rod, redrill and tap new holes for the 4500.

He has a 4500 intake but, needs to use a 4150 carb.
Quick Fuel has a 4150 carb with a 4500 bolt pattern but, apparently he already has a carb he wants to use.
Of course this is all guessing because, there is very little information to draw any concrete conclusions unless you do presume a few things.

Put studs in the passenger front and driver rear of the Dominator carb pad bolt pattern of the manifold. Get a 4150 gasket, turn it 2 degrees to the right and put it directly over the two studs there. Now, drill and tap two more holes in the remaining corners at the needed places.

The throttle linkage stud will even be at almost the same location between the two carbs.

Otherwise use the adapters available.

Guys, thanks for the replies. I tried clocking the carb, but the intake's carb pad didn't have enough meat on it to drill/tap the two new holes. I ended up purchasing a HVH SS4150/4500 carb adapter. It looks like this adapter has a nice transition from the 4150 to the 4500...sorta like a tapered four hole spacer.

Sorry, I thought I provided all the relevant data and didn't intentionally leave anything out there to assume. A dominator is overkill for my application. Though I haven't purchased it yet, I plan to go with an 850 cfm CSU blow through carb.

Have a good day!
