My first experience with a TQ was on a 75 motor home engine I bought for rebuild last year. I rebuilt the TQ and put it on the 318 in a 49 Plymouth I was playing with last year. The Plymouth had a Holley 600 on it. The little Plymouth ran so well with that TQ I never put the Holley back on before I sold the car. Kicking myself for not keeping that TQ. I found another TQ on Ebay. Plan to rebuild it and put it on the 68 383 I am playing with this year. The 383 has a spread bore intake with an adapter plate to fit a square bore carb. I want to get rid of the adapter plate and try a 1" open spacer under the TQ.
