I've been really considering doing the head swap on my 76 cj but I've read some mixed information on the stock intake manifold lining up with the head studs. Some articles and people say it bolts right up some say you have to grind the manifold to make it work with headers and some say you have to grind the manifold and sit it on top the stud so everything lines up. I haven't been into it yet to know nor do I want to spend the the money on the rebuilt head until I know either. If there is problems Can you just get the 4.0 intake manifold to go with the head and convert it to a carb? I don't like the idea of the intake sitting on top the stud is why I ask. Is there someone that makes an intake for this application already converted for a carb? Any information would be greatly appreciated thanks!
