This is a step by step guide for installing your Edelbrock intake with some pictures of the finished 4 barrel conversion. We mainly give you a guide of how to apply sealant for the valley pan gasket so it sets correctly and does not leak.
What we used:
Permatex Ultra Grey Automotive sealant. We prefer this because grey is less noticeable if there is excess sealant.
As seen in the first picture, we show you how important it is to seal up the space between the head & the block with sealant. The first photo shows the space unfilled. While the second photo shows the space filled with sealant.
The next step is to apply the end seals. They only go one way so there is no confusion.
Then apply a liberal amount of sealant to the top of the end seals like so. You can never have to much sealant, you can always just wipe off the excess after you are done bolting it down.
Next apply and bolt down the valley pan gasket. Then apply a thin amount of sealant on the end water jackets for the front and back. There are 4 in total.
Next lay the intake on. Partially screw in all the bolts at first. Then tighten from the inside out equally on both sides until they all snug down tight. You do not need to use a torque wrench if you follow the above method.
And now you are Done!
