Anyone happen to know the neck size on edelbrock carbs? I'm hunting for a low rise air cleaner and need to ensure it fits.

Thanks!

Its the same as a Holley.If you use one of those generic 14 in. low profile air cleaners you will have to modify the bottom to clear the elec. choke on an Edelbrock carb.

Just got home, the o.d. of it checks 5"...and sharkcar71 is right, i didnt modify my holder, but i turned a thin ring of bronze at work and raised it about 1/4 of an inch, to clear the choke module, and still stay under my hood by about 1/2 inch from the nut that holds it together.I can post a photo of the ring if you want.
