1969 Ram Air IV intake manifold assembly
I am slowly closing in on my 1969 GTO RAM AIR IV restoration. I just received the reproduction ram air IV intake manifold, crossover, and crossover housing in the mail. I have a couple questions about the install for anybody that can help. I have searched the internet and can seem to find any literature or device manuals specifically for the ram air IV intake manifold.
1. How does the crossover mount to the engine or intake manifold?
2. The kit I purchased came with crossover covers (2). It appears that the covers go below and above the crossover, shielding it. How do those mount? There was not any hardware included.
3. I am also concerned about the front right mounting bolt hole in the aluminum manifold I purchasedZ It appears that it was machined too close to the edge, leaving less than 1/16 or an inch of “meat.” Do you think this will be an issue?
I am away from the garage right now and don’t have any photos of the build. I will post some as soon as I get home. Thanks in advance
