You MAY need an adapter for the WCFB flange/bolt holes. I had to use a pair to fit Holley 9776 carbs to a 1956 Caribbean intake on my Panther. FYI, throttle linkage should not be a big issue for you.

After having the WCFB apart 3 times & rebuilding 2 Rochesters, it never ran better that with the 1406. Stack 1/4 inch of Edelbrock gaskets for the throttle blades to clear the intake manifold. And your air cleaner will not fit the airhorn.

Yes, 'Lectric choke. My air cleaner was a brand X so a 1 inch spacer would certainly have worked.

I installed a 1406 (auto choke) on my 56 400 last year and it runs great... You'll need an adaptor plate - the one I used is a Racing Power (rpc) R2064 Large 4 Bbl To Small 4 Bbl Taped 4 Hole Adaptor. I purchased this on line from Barnett Performance...

How is mileage and performance with that 1406? And does it have an overflow back to the gas tank?
