Yes.

Just installed the Trans-Dapt 2025 Carburetor Adapter with the HOLLEY SNIPER EFI 2GC SMALL BORE and it worked fine when bolted to the stock manifold.

It was much simpler, but wasn't available last year when I went with the HOLLEY SNIPER EFI 2300 on the 292.
Do you have an adapter to go from the Offenhauser to the 2300?

I had a 1933 4brl to 2brl adapter that I'm throwing on the Offenhauser manifold. The manifold has the 4 ports so probably not the most desirable if it works.

Score of the year.
Drove up to Colonial Heights, VA today and picked up a Chevy 250 with the AC brackets and compressor, power steering brackets and pump, and the alternator and brackets. It also had the extra pulleys to fit all 3. The engine was removed from a low mileage pickup without issues to install a V8. We paid $50 for it. The interesting thing was I drove our 110 with the $125 Chevy 250 that I bought last spring with just over 46,000 miles that was located not 5 miles from the seller of this $50 engine.

Finally stuck the motor in this morning. It went absolutely smooth as I could have wished for. I cut off some 4x 6” 3/8 threaded rod and used them as guides for the trans. Had it lifted in and the trans and mounts bolted up in about 45 minutes. The dust shield bolts lined up perfectly just has to die grind the two outer lips so they wouldn’t pinch in between the adapter and motor.









This week I’m going to build the PS lines, coolant lines, wiring, and start on the fuel injection.

Robert, any tips or advice on installing the Sniper pump and return lines? Where did you mount your pump etc.

Thanks again, awesome kit and zero firmament issues. The mounts and brackets are spot on with adjustment in all directions. The trans adapter fit like a glove and didn’t even have to turn the crank to line up the splines.

I’m taking my lazy time doing this but I absolutely agree that it is possible to complete in a weekend by someone with basic mechanical skills.

~Install is looking really good Shannon.
How far away from the bulkhead was the rear cast iron header?
The engine sits straight and clears the steering box with room to spare.~

~We installed the fuel pump on the outside of the frame rail.~

~We've done our best to achieve a bolt in kit at a reasonable price that is easy for a DIY owner with limited mechanical skills or a shop with skilled mechanics to easily complete in a few days or less.
Hopefully you'll be driving before the pandemic ends.
Thanks for all the pictures.~
