its all unscrewed and s*** and i cant get it of, any ideas?

also, what do u guys think of a therma quad going onto my motor?
is it worth it? i just have a single barrel on there now and i want to know if the thermaquad will give me any noticable increase in power/pivkup??

this is the reason i want the manifold of the other enigine so i can put it and my thermaquad into my fairlane

as long as all the bolts are undone , it should
come off. maybe stuck in place from 20 years of
dirt, corrosion ect.
try gently prying with a lever to break the seal..

Give it a tap next to the dizzy with a soft face mallet and then use an appropriate sized punch inserted into a bolt hole to lever it off. Worked well for mine.

Single throat carby on a cleveland ??? I think what you have is a Stromberg dual throat carby. Sufficient for a standard 302, but if you want to keep the oil companies in business put the big one on.

Tap a screw driver into the very front where the cork gasket goes across the front and lever it, it'l come off easy once you lift a tad and break the seal.

What kind of car is this in? I highly doubt it's a single throat, more than likely a Motorcraft 2 barrel.
As for the Thermoquad, the best place i've found for those is in the scrap bin, they're a big plastic piece of s**t!
Is it a 302 or 351? If your car is pre pollution then go for a Holley.

Throw up a bit more info and you'll get better answers.

yep go the old screw driver in the front and it'll come up easy, on my 351 I had little cut outs in the heads where I was able to get a driver in and reef it out.

Ts this because you don't like the long setup as I have found them VERY easy to mod and get really good economy WITH excellent top end and acceleration IF set up correctly :roll: :P

That's because they have very small primaries and huge secondaries.

There was a guy in Melb a few years back who was a master with them, but i still wouldn't use one unless it was for pollution reasons.

I,ve found nothing wrong with Thermoquads. Yes they are a bit fiddly to tune compared to a Holley, but they are reliable and have good throttle responce due to the small primaries. They also make a great sound when you open up the large secondaries. I have one one my 302C and I can cold start it and pretty much drive away without any problems.
