    Sometimes after market six packs have mechanical linkages for the outboard carbs. An original six packs have vacuum diaphragms to open up the outboard carbs.

    As far as I know edelbrock doesn't make the intake, mopar performance is casting them from edelbrock design. They say mopar on them and are a bit heavy compared to the originals. Originals are around $350 to $450 the mopar ones are $250ish. Performace is about the same. I think all the original t/a aar ones had the part number but back then you could get a over the counter edelbrock from a speed shop without the number.

    Actually Buddy bar casts the mopar one. Eddy I believe cast some originals and also farmed out a lot to Buddy Bar, the original BB 6 packs were eddy and when they could not keep up Chrysler cast then from cast iron. But I don't think the OP needed that much info
