The following Table shows Edelbrock V8 intake manifolds going back to the late 1950s, sorted by engine type. Most modern Edelbrock models are clearly identified with the name (“Torker AMC”,
etc.) or modern part number (“2101”,
etc.) cast into the upper surface . This list is limited to manifolds which are marked with the older part
number only; the size and/or name of the motor and/or manifold type are
not visible on the casting. In some cases, the letters “ML” also appear - I believe this means “model” (not Mercury-Lincoln).
The 4 bbl. carburetor bolt patterns & flanges are generally standard (modern) Holley square-bore where noted, but earlier models may be different (Carter WCFB & AFB, Rochester 4G, etc.).
Most “log” manifolds* can fit both low and raised deck engines in the same family by changing the length of the connecting hoses.
The symbol “*” in the “Carbs” column means consult “STR Intake Manifold Tops”, below the Table for possible choices.
In some cases, a hyphen (“-”) in the part number appears where it should not, or may have been ommitted, please excuse this. Please help contribute by filling in the missing part numbers?? Comments and corrections always welcome.
I haven’t de-coded Edelbrock’s numbering system, but it appears that manifolds intended for use with Stromberg 48/97 3-bolt carburetors frequently have an “8” or “9” in the number. “B” is Buick, “C” is Chevrolet, “CH” (Chrysler) is RB, “CD” is Cadillac, “DO” is Dodge hemi & poly 1953-58, “DP” (Dodge/Plymouth) is B, “F” is Ford, “FM” is Ford/Mercury 1955-61 “Y” block, “LD” (low Dodge) is 1966-* LA small block, “O” & “OL” are Oldsmobile, “P” is both Pontiac and Plymouth 1956-67 poly “A”, “R” is Rambler (AMC).
In some cases, a picture of the manifold is available by clicking the part number in bright blue.
Please note: I do not own these, they are not for sale, this for for information only.
To do a quick search for a manifold by its part number (X4, etc.) or some details of its description (Chrysler, 97, Holley, etc.), use the find feature in your browser, just press the “Control” + “F” keys simultaneously, or click on the toolbar (upper left) “Edit”, then “Find”, then type in the name. If no results, try both with and without a hyphen; e.g., try both “C-427” and “C427”.
