So I have a Clifford bbl 4 intake and the issue I'm having is the holley is has the throttle facing the radiator or firewall. Is there an adaptor available that will rotate this 90* so the throttle is going the same way as the engine. Hard to get the cable hooked as is. Thanks for any input.

No, there isn't a bolt on version... you basically have to take an existing adaptor or plate and redrill it to do what you want it to do...

If the acc. cable isn't long enough to make the bend, you can go to the junkyard and look at K-cars and chrysler minivans... these are plenty
long and are what I have used to reach the carb on a hyper pak intake...FYI.

Every Clifford I've had the plate would bolt on in either orientation. My offy's would not.

The last Clifford shorty I had a couple years back wasn't drilled symmetrically... so the stock plate couldn't be installed 90 degrees
without egging 2 holes and counter boring so the fasteners would sit right... FYI.

IIRC, the plate had a dual patern in it. The bolt holes looked kinda like a figure eight.

But I have slept since then. :oops:

That's the issue with this one. They almost line up just off a hair. I might try the egg operation.
