I just tried to post a picture but it's to large and I don't know how to change it right now (no kids at my house) What I have is two old style and two new manifold clamps, I'd like to have two more of the new type, if the picture would show the old type stands out to where the nuts will not thread on far enough (I'm thinking I have a vacuum leak intake, can not idle down and need choke even when warmed up. I'd like to see if I can get this out of the shop for the first time ! And I find the manifold studs are very tight in the block and I don't want to break one off ! I have no idea why the old studs seem short. I checked with Lang's about used ones but no reply yet. I'll pay Lang's asking price if someone can help, thanks. you can find me on facebook!

I sent you a PM with my phone number. I can swing by tomorrow if you want and can bring both styles of clamps and some studs. Have a spare carb I can bring if you want to see if that helps. Would be happy to help you get it on the road.

If you are going to use the earlier style, they take a longer stud. I like the late studs, because they have a shoulder on them, so you can't screw them in too far.

I'm with Larry the later studs are the way to go.
