Perfect fit, includes gaskets!

August 19, 2014
I used this for a 1955 Buick Nail head and it worked perfect! Picture doesn't show gaskets, but I was relieved to see that they were included. The only other thing to mention, is that I had to center the butterflies before tightening the carb down, it's close, but it works great! The car never run so good.
Pros:
  • includes gaskets
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am asking if this adapter will work on the Ford 239 Overhead valve intake manifold. It appears that the small base "teapot" carb is similar to the 4bbl manifolds made for the flattie. I am trying to purchase an original '54 239 4bbl manifold and want to

This adapter is designed to fit on the early WCFB small pattern intakes and accepts the later Edelbrock, Holley, Demon, etc. It works on our flathead intakes when running the 390cfm Holley carbs and has the following specifications to compare to your application to verify fit: Bore Size is 1.5" on the small side and tapers to 1.685" on the large side. Smaller Inner Bolt Pattern: Side to side is 3-3/4" center to center, Front to rear is 3-7/8" center to center. Outer Bolt Pattern: Side to side on inner pattern is 4-1/4" center to center, Side to side on outer pattern is 5-1/8" center to center, Front to rear is 5-5/8" center to center. If you have the smaller pattern intake this adapter would allow you to use our 390cfm Holley carburetors or any square pattern four barrel carburetor.

(Part #5601079)
                        

This Offy single 4-barrel intake fits the 1932-48 Ford V-8 and features a Carter WCFB bolt pattern. For best results, our techs recommend the Holley 390 CFM 4-BBL which requires the Holley Flathead adapter 135-1935B.

You may also need to purchase 560-6091, 4" tall carb spacer (in addition to 135-1935B) to use a Holley carb on this intake. The spacer gets the carb high enough so that the base will clear the water hoses.

  • For 1932-48 Ford Flathead, 4-barrel carbs 
  • Requires Holley carb, adaptor, and spacer for best results
