    It looks like it came off a flat head Ford.... But that is a visual guess. The first picture looks like the mount holes have been hogged out for a different intake with a slightly wider pattern.

    Any grade of non-ethanol fuel works. Higher grades are a bit of overkill, but the ethanol will corrode the aluminum in the carb and the fuel pump. A higher octane rating will help if the engine...
