Amc V8 With Intake Removed

Back to article View Gallery
3 of 7
It’s easy to swap intakes on an AMC V-8. Remove the distributor cap for clearance (you can even leave the wires hooked up), drain the coolant, remove the fuel line, and remove the carb and intake as a unit. Remove the factory valley pan gasket and completely clean the head and valley surfaces. Block off the intake ports and make sure no carbon or crud goes into the oil passages.
