Hi. Does anyone know the carb pad height on an Edelbrock Torker 289 intake manifold? I can find the height for a Torker II on the net, but nothing at all for the 289.

I want to replace it with a lower, more modern intake, but have no dimensions to compare more up to date intakes with.

Thanks

I honestly don't get it.

I'm sweating, my heart is racing, my clutch foot is twichin', and my right arm punched the computer screen doing an involentary 2-3 shift while reading all that.

That'd be great, thanks very much. I didn't want to have to take it off the car just to measure it!

I know that the torker 289 with a 2 inch spacer is only just as tall as my Chinese funnel web.

It sucks to get old but at least the expectations are lower...

Damn, I got busy this weekend and forgot about this.

Anyways, I got these measurements by placing a straightedge across each end of the carb flange and measuring at the side of the intake. I believe the slight differences in measurements at each end is due to the twisted carb flange design.
