Fits poorly

February 22, 2012
When installing with 3 hole side down there is no clearance on the 3 hole side for installing nuts. The rear is impossible. Had to go to a special nut with a 3/8" head. Short term these should be included with the part. Long term the casting should be changed or some machining done to give adequate clearance for standard nut and wrench. All three holes are tight but the single rear is the worst.
Pros:
  • Holes threaded both sides
  • Holes are perfectly spacd
No, I would not recommend this product.

No this will not fit your throttle body injection intake manifold, nor a 500 cfm Holley 2 barrel. Sorry we do not offer an adapter for that conversion. You may be better off changing the intake manifold to a four barrel version such as 91011260 and then simply using a four barrel carburetor or to use the Holley 2 barrel an adapter such as 1351936A on the four barrel intake.

Will this reverse-fit to a stock 49-51 Merc intake? I am trying to adapt a 94 or 9Super7 to my stock Mercury intake (4 bolt) I now have a collection of 2GC's that are not the right size baseplate. So I figure I would just go traditional, but I don't want to buy a new intake.

We apologize but adapter number 5605159 has the same 4 bolt pattern as the Rochester 2GC. This is 3 ¼ side to side and 1 7/8” front to back.

THIS ADAPTOR IS APP. 1-1/2" THICK. IT CAN BE USED TO PUT A 55-68? SMALL-BASE ROCHESTER/CARTER CARB ON AN INTAKE FOR 3 BOLT OLD FORD (94'S, 97'S, ETC) CARBS. IT COULD ALSO BE USED TO PUT 3 BOLT CARBS (LIKE THE '9 SUPER 7') ON INTAKES THAT NORMALLY USE THE SMALL-BASE ROCHESTER/CARTER CARBS. Dimension for the 4 bolt Rochester carburetor are 3 ¼” x 1 7/8”
