Looking for a non-federal (non-emissions) inlet manifold for the Strombergs on my 1970 +2.

Does this request make any sense? I always thought that the inlet manifolds are part of the twin-cam head, thus there are two types of head, those for Weber and those for Stromberg carbutettors.

Only converted heads have separate manifolds ?

I think the search is for the adaptor block from carb to intake manifold. There were 3 for Strombergs, 1 for federal emmissions and 2 for non-federal cars (1 with a high balance pipe and 1 low).
