INTAKE MANIFOLD

1985 Ford Bronco

Engine Mechanical problem
1985 Ford Bronco V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

i bought and edelbrock intake manifold, gaskets and silicon. When I went to put it on the intake was too narrow. Its for a 351 and thats what I have. The bolts were off by about 1/4 inch. If it was a 302 it would be to big so I know im not missing that part cuz its too small. What could be wrong

There are two different 351 engines. One is a Cleveland and the other Windsor. Both the Cleveland and the Windsor are 90 small block, but the Windsor routed coolant through the intake manifold, with the hose protruding horizontally, while the Cleveland had a dry manifold with the radiator hose connecting vertically to the cylinder block above the cam timing chain cover.

My guess is you got the wrong intake for your engine.
