If you look at the picture of the manifold's mating surface with the head, there are channels machined between the separate carburetor segments. These are the "balance tubes" between the carbs.

Re: Turbo mechanical seals

The turbocharger for the 62-66 Corvair is a draw-thru and is sealed. It can be and has been used in a blow-thru system.

A turbocharger for a blow-thru system usually can't be used in a draw-thru setup because of the lack of seals for gasoline.

Looks like you have enough height in the engine bay for the 4.9, along with width, but length (radiator clearance) might get you.

The early Falcon/Econoline engine bay was tight when fitting a 4.9 without changing out the dog house.
