Hi,
I have an Edelbrock performer inlet manifold and 500cfm carb on my 3.5l Rover V8. I'm having a slight problem in that the thermostat housing that comes with the inlet manifold (with the extra water outlet) will not fit on the engine because it fouls agains the vac on the distributor (the standard item). I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this problem? Have I put the distributor in the wrong way round?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

john

John,
You need to turn the dissy, the vacum tube on mine points to the front.
