    So what's it going in? Keep the story going, I'm eventually going to do this on my 318 2 bbl, and I'd like to hear what you run into. What carb. are you going load the old LD4B with?

      I don't know where to start. Great thread and start to your project. I will get going on my LD4b/600 Edelbrock swap when spring comes and temps are in the 60's at least. (you lucky dog C) Keep us posted with your needs and what works. tmm

        Looking great C! Lemme know any tricks you have up your sleeve for torqing the intake bolts beside the carb flange. I had a #$&!@# of a time!

        Whats your plans for the coil?

          From the valve covers and intake, I'm gonna guess that this is on a mid 70's car... 73 - 74....

          We ran an LD4B on the kids 71 Valiant with the Edelbrock 600 and it ran great, no stumble, and strong pull off the line...

          This will make a big improvement...

            I'm hoping I didn't screw this car up by messing with it :prayer:. The damn thing was/is SO dependable, but I wanted a 4 barrel LOL :burnout:


            The custom coil mount is coming in my next post....It turned out really nice IMHO :D

            Might be installing the intake tomorrow. I'll let you know on the torquing challenges....

            Don't worry, it will be just as or more dependable with the intake, carb, and electric choke...

            And that 600 Edelbrock is the easiest carb on the planet to adjust and tune.

            Didn't take any pictures of the throttle cable bracket before 3 ears were hacked off of it :eek:ops: & I don't know what Mopar it came off of either :scratch:

            Used the existing coil bracket & bolted it to the throttle bracket. I think it will work great!!

            Neat coil bracket, I'm partially impressed...

            and fully expect a certain response for that comment! LOL

            Good eyes....:glasses7:


            I'm hoping so...Thanks :)


            Green is a great color too LOL....Thanks :)



            I'm hoping it will be easy to tune. More familiar with Holleys, so this could be quite the learning curve...Thanks :)
