i swapped a US cleveland with cast iron heads to a aussie cleveland with alum heads / now i cannot find an intake manifold to fit without some kind of spacers / does anyone know if the deck height is different between the two blocks? and could this be the problem? thanx ron

It can only be one of two things. The deck height or the manifold "flange" on the heads. This assumes the intake is truly a Cleveland and not a "Boss 302", correct?

Edelbrock part #2864. For use on the 9.5" deck block. Standard deck is 9.2".
