New to SB2 and just finishing up polishing the complete topend,block is not here yet.Looking at the the intake 24502588 it appears there is no front or back.Without the block and heads mounted hard to tell.Is there a trick of the trade to tell?

The layout will allow you to turn it either way, look to see if one way or the other lines up with the ports better.

FWIT the Edelbrock Victor Glidden 18* spider intake I have would fit either way. I used a metal stamp on the carb flange to designate one end as the front so I wouldn't be confused any more than I already am, then did the port match.

Good idea once the block is done and motor is together will do this for the same reason.My reason is the heads and manifold are ported,just finished milling a Nos plate into carb flange turned out it only fit one way. After closer inspection found that very slight filing will make it work.
