So I should be looking for ECG code intake manifold and carburetor? Does the distributor use the same 3 letter code?

Re: preferred 2 barrel Y-block intake manifold?

What year of transmission and suitable donor? I know the people that make the flat-o-matic adapter make one for the c-4 conversion. I'll have to check to see if they make one for the AOD.

preferred 2 barrel Y-block intake manifold?

What is the preferred 2 barrel intake for the mid-50's era Y-block? I am assuming it would have the biggest intake runners under the carb. I am referring to OEM cast iron.

Re: Tierod end grease zert direction questions

Thanks for the info., I swapped the tie rod, end for end, and the pinch bolts do not touch the wishbone now. The press in grease fittings are now facing the rear of the car.
