    I dont see why it would not work but i dont know. I will say the bolt holes will line up so you could secure it.

    Have even seen them mounted backwards on some engines, they will run fine. For very hard accelleration, you may encounter some issues, and need to change to a different style float for sideways carbs, or jet extensions for the secondaries of the inline carbs.

    The carb can be mounted any direction you would like, just adjust float levels accordingly. Heck you can mount them diagonal if you have an old edelbrock manifold single plane manifold. I have this one just for a nostalgia motor I'll build some day.

    Run them every which way but upside down , have run them backwards However as suggested above on hard accell the fuel in the "rear" (front bowl) will tend to run away from the jets with out mods Tom
