Well I screwed up.
When looking for a way to make the carb plate line up by drilling holes I discovered it does in fact line up.
I thought those old fords used square bore carburetors and it turns out that they do.

The hose nipples were 5/8, rotted to about 13mm so they need to go. I will cut them off and drill then to fit what evet pipe thread tap is convenient and put 3/8 hose barbs on there.
