Peanut manifold or two hole?

Pulled the 32/36 this evening, cleaned and re-jetted per CD's prescrip (I hope the hell I put the JB Weld in the right hole). Anyway the intake is a straight 32/32mm. Tomorrow I'll open it up. Peanut or two hole? Any advantages one over the other?

I'm no expert, bu the downdraft manifold seems crude enough that it probably doesn't matter. The airflow takes a sharp right turn, then splits into 4 runners.

But, to overthink a little, if you have a machine shop make the two holes just right, one at 32 and one at 36, it may possibly be marginally better flow. But all that's after the carb venturis anyway, so it may not matt after all.

Maybe a fluid dynamics expert can chime in.

Just rejetted mine last night per CD as well, I wasn't too clear on the plugging of the # 31 jet either, I blocked off the small brass jet at the top of the main carb housing on the secondary side. Do I have it right ?

I can't exactly take it for a ride to test it as it has no interior or brakes.

As it is after the carb I dont think it matters, better to open it up too much, than not being able to get full acceleration as the butterflys hit the mani. As for the correct hole to plug see attached pic. Beaner7102
