Pops, I used a 90 degree street elbow and short hose nipple on the upper hose along with a 'thick' gasket from Edelbrock to help dissipate heat between my carb and Performer intake. More significantly however was that I did not use the fuel filter on the end of the carb line - just a brass nipple with the proper flare. The elbow doesn't really help with the appearance factor of the engine compartment - for that matter neither does the placement of the filter or the fuel regulator. But for me it's a reliability issue on that car (the '38). I'm a ways away from figuring out how to plumb things on the Nomad...

I use this kit, don't have a problem - misses the hose fitting by 1/2". However I do use a 3/8" spacer under the carb as suggested by Wayne, post #10. In my case the Edelbrock carb tended to suffer from heat soak in the summer without the spacer so solved 2 problems..

This is the one I'm using on my ZZ4...so far so good....starts/runs great cold or hot engine.

I'm also using that Edelbrock fuel connector, but didn't opt for their filter. I went to a finer micron "fuelab" filter (mounted further down the fuel line between carb and pump)

Open plenum adds to bottom end, 4 hole adds to top end. Increment not much, by itself probably unnoticeable in street engine. Thickness may be more noticeable on the street, esp if a thicker spacer is used - 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 and up. Again, these are small details none by themselves will set you back in the seat.

At a Goodguys event a couple of years ago I struck up a conversation with the guys from Edelbrock...mostly about the transition surging the 1406 is prone to, but when I mentioned I was also concerned about heat soak one of them handed one of these to me (free gratis) and said it would take care of the issue. It did. Edelbrock #9265, .32" thick nitrile rubber. JR
