I'm not real sure, but the groove on the carb flange I believe is from the EGR valve having been installed in some of the carb spacers. I had a V-6 Mustang like that. Hopefully someone a little more familiar with this intake will help.

The opening with the 4 bolt holes would have had a plate with the tubes in it, junk yard situation I believe.

Re: choke stove for Aus intake?

I'll check around on some restoration sites and see if I can stumble upon one. It may be something you could fab with steel brake line tube. There wasnt much to the things. What engine is that intake off of? I'm guessing a 302 but not sure from the photo.

They do concours restos of Mustang carbys. they might have those tubes, may depend on if they consider them part of the device or not.

He had a few on the web site. The one pictured was the spring loaded heat activated type that sat down in the intake. I hope he has what is needed anyway lol.

Re: choke stove for Aus intake?

the intake in the photo is most likely from an Australian 302C. the US version of the 4 bolt choke stove is different, it doesn't fit, at least one of the outer bolts is not in the same place. the owner of the intake has gotten many suggestions on how to make it work with more easily available pieces but he wants the correct choke stove that fits properly without any modification.

i thought this might be a good place to get a lead on the right piece since there are more than a few guys from over, around, and down under on this forum page. it has been suggested that all of these intakes came from the factory with a block-off plate and the carb used an electric choke. i believe the owner of the intake is familiar with Pony carbs, but unless they have some Aussie parts, the US pieces are not correct.

thanks and keep any info coming, he said he's not in a rush to get it going, he's going to wait till he finds the right bits...

My 302C intake is different, looks solid with 2 bolts & a pipe plug. Also the 302C-4V uses a spread bore intake. What is the casting # on the intake?
