1100: The Edelbrock Super Dual intake manifold is designed for use on 1938-1948 Ford and Mercury Flathead V8 engines. It accepts two 3-bolt carburetors (Stromberg 97 type, or Holley 3-bolt). Manifold includes 1942-1948 offset generator bracket #1945.

1103: The Edelbrock Slingshot manifold is designed for use on 1938-1948 Ford and Mercury Flathead V8 engines. It accepts two 3-bolt carburetors (Stromberg 97 type, or Holley 3-bolt). This manifold is compatible with the stock generator in the stock location. The top y-block will need to be secured to the lower manifold with the supplied bolts. Use a small amount of teflon paste on each bolt to prevent vacuum leaks.

1107: The Edelbrock Ford Flathead 4-Barrel intake manifold is designed for use on 1949-1953 Ford Flathead V8 engines. It is a reproduction of the vintage Edelbrock #452 two-piece manifold with a new carb adapter flange designed for modern 4-barrel carburetors. The manifold will accept Edelbrock Performer Series 500 cfm carburetor #1403 (electric choke) or #1404 (manual choke), or Edelbrock Thunder Series AVS carburetor #1801 (electric choke) or #1802 (manual choke).

NOTES: Edelbrock Performer Series Carburetors require #8008 or #8024 stud, washer and nut kit. Determine proper length based on gasket thickness and your accessory mounting requirements. If a manual choke Edelbrock Performer Series carburetor is used and electric choke is desired later on, it can be converted to electric choke using Electric Choke Kit #1478. Manual choke Edelbrock Thunder Series Carburetors CAN NOT be converted to electric choke.

1108 & 1109: The Edelbrock Triple Deuce intake manifold #1108 is designed for use on 1938-1948 Ford Flathead V8 engines, while the #1109 is the same manifold for 1949-1953 model year engines. The #1108 is a reproduction of the vintage Edelbrock SU 359 manifold, while the #1109 is a reproduction of the classic Edelbrock SU 349. Both feature a carb flange designed for three 3-bolt carburetors (Stromberg 97 type, or Holley 3-bolt).
