Re: CLIFFORD 6=8

i had it on my first 78 with the heddman dual outlets, that with a good rebuild .030 over, a good RV cam, and a really good head job was great. i ran it with the holley 390 and once i got the carb all done right it ran like a champ.

Re: CLIFFORD 6=8

I have an MC2100, GM HEI, and dual Hedman. You'll really like the sound of the headers. Take your time, getting the intake and headers sealed just right can be a PITA. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: CLIFFORD 6=8

the one thing you're going to have to watch out for when running the dual outlet is the clutch linkage rubbing on the top of one of the tubes just in front of the upper outside collecter. you may want to consider doing a hydraulic clutch throwout conversion while you're doing this. do a search on hydraulic clutch and you should find plenty of info, i may have a few links too if you're interested.

have to go with jdog too, i think i'd stick with the MC2100 if i still had the 258 and clifford. even though its only a 2bbl carb it still runs better than any holley on a jeep.

Just adding that since they were used on the V8's, they won't be too small for a 6 either.

Mount Clifford intake

Hi, new to this forum and have a question. I have a 78 CJ7 w/232 and single hedman header. I just bought a clifford intake and holly 390. Any advise on mounting for the intake since the old bolts and washers won't work? Some hold both header and intake.

Welcome to the board! It's nice to see new folks come in with old Jeeps, although a '78 doesn't seem very old to me.

If I understand your question correctly, the problem is that the intake and header flanges are different thicknesses, so the big washers that clamp both to the head won't sit square. If that's the case, cut some pieces of tube to use as spacers. You can probably use 3/4" by 3/16 wall. That will have a 3/8" ID which a 3/8" bolt will just go through. Measure the thickness of the flanges and cut the tube length to the difference. A lathe will square the spacers up nicely. If you can't do that, use a grinder or file to get them as close as possible.

And tell us more about what you're building.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

instead of spending all the effort in building spacers look into getting a alum intake from a newer cj or amc car..... as Jdogg said there a pita to get to seal. as for the dual outlet on the header i had clearance problems with clutch linkage also... nothing a BFH wont fix......o yeah welcome to the board!!!!

Why is it that after you get stuck everyone helps you out then tries to make it though the same spot???
