Doug, Dave Short might be your man re plumbing and such. He's managed through what's seems like a successful conversion.

I have pics at work of a Holly carb config on a RHD 110 I'll send you once I get in. It's living in NH now but the owner is a good guy so if needs be he'll snap some shots.

Doug, I'm running the front cover off of the original 3.5 on the 4.6 so the plumbing should be pretty much the same though the manifold is a 4bbl manifold off a '62 Buick. It is very close to being the same as the Edelbrock. One of the connections off the back of the cover went to the heater and I've attached a photo of that. I'll see if I can find a photo of the other connection.

Pretty sure your 4.6 is different but the 3.5's water pump has 2 stub hoses that come out the back and adapting one of those to enter the front of the manifold looks like its not going to be fun.


Lokar, I used their stuff for my Edelbrock conversion. Works great and bolts right up.

Doug, only pic I have, which might not be of much help.

Kevin-thanks for that. I had been looking @ Lokar linkages

Mike- thanks yeah I ran the original steel heater hose/tube under the manifold- it's the line from the pump into the manifold/thermostat housing that has me stumped.

Thanks Clay

Doug - i will see if I can post a few photos of my coolant hose interface. It has an elbow and a fitting that would take paragraphs to describe but one photo could show in a second - easy peasy lemon squeezey.

I just re-used the original oil catchers on generic breather hoses to route them back to the Edelbrock Air Cleaner.

My Stage One throttle cable just fit. It needed to have the end re-bent to fit into the Edlebrock lever but nothing that took any brains.

Let me know if you change from the factory standard jets. I have played with a few different ones with mine trying to find the best economy and performance and really can not see much of a difference.

Radiator to intake. I think that is just a generic hose.

Dave,
Thanks for the pictures, Your water outlet elbow is angled off @ 1:30-2:00 which is what the stock one did. The eldlebrock we have angles off @ about 10:30, going to try a gems top hose off a disco. The brass elbow you picture off the water pump into the manifold- where'd you get it ?
BTW after re-routing the rhd throttle cable under the brake booster I was able to make it work, thanks.

That's what I get for posting from my phone.

Thats half the equation. There is about 3 inches of space and on different planes. what I need is a combination of two 90's. If I try a single peice of heater hose the short distance and the difference in height will kink it for sure.

Doug - I used a thermostat housing with a place for the hose you are talking about. It's from a Buick 215 and should fit your manifold too. $19.95 from TA Performance but you may be able to find a used one cheaper.

McMike/Dave thanks. Yeah thats the elbow I have and I'm just trying to connect to the back of the water pump housing. maybe I'm over thinking it but is kind of a lazy S shape and looks like if I try it with regular heater hose it will kink so a couple of very short 90's looks like the plan. I have the throttle and breaters done. Like to take this for a spin today.

for posterity, in the vent someone in the future uses the search function the two hoses I ended up using to install the edlebrock manifold were Dayco 70799 for the waterpump housing to manifold and Dayco 71910 for the upper radiator hose. Both required shortening for the application but these pre-formed hoses worked well.
Driving a 4bbl v8 is way more fun than an injected one- not sure when I'll give Trey his keys back.
