I am about to send out my Victor Jr intake and have a few question..

#1)The flange where the carb bolts to appears to be inclined toward the front of the car is this normal..

#2)On my Torker manifold Now I Have the manifold drilled for manifold vacuum to my Vacuum advance...Ther is no such output on my Victor Jr...Would I loose any Vacuum pressure if I were to T off the line that goes to my TH400...Or should I drill and tap the Victor Jr for manifold Vacuum??

#3)Anyone know how many Manifold Vacuum ports are on a Edelbrock

#4)And last anyone ever had one of these Victor Jr Jet coated...Seems like it would be dificult for them to polish all the crevices..

Thank You Again

1. I thought mine was pretty level but having it slant to the front is pretty common and no problem since it counter-acts the engine slanting towards the rear in most vehicles.

2. I drilled and tapped my own fitting but I don't see a problem teeing it to that either.

3. Four I believe; one front/rear for pcv or power brakes (large nipple). One small for ported vacuum and one small for manifold vacuum.

4. I had mine polished first, then powder-coated and it looked very good. If you don't have it polished first, it will look rough due to the bumps on the casting.

The carb flange tilt is normal on a Victor Jr., a lot of race manifolds have that to keep the carb level during launch. On my Vic Jr. I pull vacuum from the carb itself- the vacuum advance from the ported vacuum on the side of the carb and the trans vacuum from the carb base at the rear. This is on a Holley 650.
Any good polishing shop should be able to do a Victor, I've seen plenty of them polished. Just remember you have to keep that sucker clean once you polish it!
