    Will an Edelbrock B262 intake work on a 1965 Buick 401 Wildcat engine with a stock thm 400 switch pitch transmission. Will any modifications have to be made - mostly concerned that all the holes will be there for the linkage and kick down attachments.
    Thanks - Al T.

    I'd think that (at least on my 65 Gran Sport) the linkage comes off the firewall, and all that comes across the intake is a solid rod that does not attach to the intake. And again, on my car the kickdown linkage is mounted to a stand which is held in place by the intake bolts, not a threaded boss on the intake. So.....you should be good. My biggest concern would be will the kickdown stand clear the runners, but as I understand it the Edelbrock was pretty much a bolt on piece. Good luck, and post pics!

    The carb spacing is different than the cast iron 2x4 intake, so some mods will be necessary. Stock air cleaner won't fit.
    B262 is higher, check hood clearance before closing the hood!

    On my oe dual quad intake ( not installed) there is a threaded boss on the middle runners that is on a 45 degree (approx) angle and a diaphragm (flying saucer shape) bolts into. This diaphragm attaches to the linkage on that angle from below. This is the threaded boss that I do not see on the B262 intake and questioning how to get around that.
    Thanks for your response.

    I haave confirmed the angled boss on the OE dual Quad (65 Wildcat) is for the Dashpot. The B262 does not have this threaded boss - where/how would I connect the dashpot.
    Thanks for comments - Al T.
