I am planning on putting the carb on in the next few days-is there anything I should do to prep it? Or do I just slap it on, dump some fuel in it and keep cranking the motor until it fires?

If your not sure what you fuel tank condition is, you might want to clean the tank or at least drain the old fuel out. Possibly add an inline filter? you wouldn't want to run crap gas through a newly rebuilt carb.

Tighten it down until it snaps and then back it off a half turn!

Have no idea what to do next-going out today to put the new carb on, see some problems. The intake has that funny little area where I imagine it needs to be blocked off, and the choke stove needs to be blocked off as well, can anyone see what I need to do to get this thing bolted up properly?

There should be an extra spacer between the manifold and the carburetor. That hole in the manifold is most likely for for "EGR" (exhaust gas recirculation).

Yes, that is correct. You will have to find one from a 1972 through 1974 351 cleveland 4V cobra jet engine.

I'll hunt it up this week. I may even have the choke stove. I'm parting out the engine and every little bit helps. Probably regret doing that someday, LOL.
