    I designed and cast several side draft intakes for other inline engines. 40mm carbs would be a better option for a mildly modified street engine. Also, billet carb bodies used as air valves work good for EFI conversions.

      I have a Weber setup going together now. The Clifford intake has a unique throttle system. Here is a picture of the common rod needed to make it work. You can see it and the two rod end bearings it rides in. It's just one of the parts you need. I can post some more pictures for you later. I am using 45 DCOE Italian Webers. It's a sexy system, but most sexy things are expen$ive.

        Theres a gentlemen on salnsix.org that runs 6 individual motorcycle carbs on his slant six. He is not using a clifford manifold though.

          If I was a crafty fellow I would definitely try this conversation.

          They do look beautiful! Oh man. The price tag on each carb is what’s scaring the heck out of me but they do produce a beautiful sound!

          I don’t know what route to take anymore.

          I have a 440 on the side with rebuilt 904 transmission. I also have a b body rear ended from a 68 Dodge Charger.

          I’ll probably spend more on the carbs than the conversion

          I’m looking for the article but can’t find it. Do you know when it was published?

          Well if you are going to start messing with a slant, you started with the hardest intake system. Baseline a build with a single 4 or a super six 2 barrel system will be a lot easier and cheaper.

            You’re absolutely right! I’m going to try and find a nice manifold while I stack up my parts list for the swap.

            I’ve been looking for a decent manifold but seems like they get bought faster than a bat in Wuhan. The websites are at least about 500 plus with shipping. Even the headers are a bit pricey! I love the Dutra headers look if any member has one for a decent price!

            It wasn't an article just one of the members i remember crossing paths with. He had the motor in an old 50's chrysler. Ill do some digging and see if I can find a username for you.

              Here you go. His username is Fopar and it looks like he is still active. Maybe try messaging him and picking his brains?
