1969 1970 Z/28 aluminum manifold ---carbs

I have a line on an aluminium high rise manifold from a 1969/ 70 Z. I was wondering if I can use my Quadrajet carb on it?

No, only a Holley unless you want to install a Q-Jet to Holley adapter.

I wouldn't tho if it was mine.

Thanks PD. Why not use the adaptor?

It's not optimal flow, it raise's the carb about 5/8" to 3/4" higher and it doesn't look pretty.

Other than these three points, it's fine to use by me.

Good enough reasons for me! Thanks again. I guess I will go the easy route and get a manifold I can use with my carb. I still might buy it if I can get it for a low ball offer.

I wouldn't worry about it b/c a good old Holley 300-36 is right in there and you won't be paying any sort of GM Z-28 PN increase in price, imho.

Re: 1969 1970 Z/28 aluminum manifold ---carbs

PD as usual I am going to call on your expertise on the 300-36. What is the complete part number I am looking for. I have been lurking on ebay and there are several. One is a current model 300-36c with an everbright finish. I guess that is the polished and I don't want that one. Another is 701-r-36 300-36. I am asuming that is the one I should be looking for? The only thing that throws me is there is only one set of bolt holes. Thanks in advance for any help.

Heck, a 300-36 is just that as far as I recall.

Unless Holley made one w/ the different angled four centered bolts?

Got a new one in it's box in my bedroom closet so may have to pull it out and look?

Re: 1969 1970 Z/28 aluminum manifold ---carbs

Thanks PD. I am a newbie to carb switching etc. All my previous cars were Zs and that is pretty much straight forward holley 4053. I have had several DZ carbs.
I found out that my Quad is from a 72 Camaro 350/175 application, Would that be a dog on a warmed up 327?

Probably about dead-nuts on once the top rear butterfly's are set to tip in where you want them to.

Re: 1969 1970 Z/28 aluminum manifold ---carbs

Brian, does the manifold have the winters "snow flake" logo on it? I am looking at the same thing for my '69. earlier this morning, I came across a good site regarding the Winter's high rise manifold and proper Holly carb for the set up; and listed the part numbers which should be stamped. I'll find that site again and post later today when I'm on a different computer. What kind of cost are you looking at if you don't mind??
