Weber set up question

Hopefully someone can help me out. I bought a parts Jeep with a Weber 32/36 on it, I think it is the DGAV model. Anyways, I removed it from one parts Jeep (87 258ci) and when I went to put it on my Jeep, (83, 258ci) the intake manifold bolts are different set up? The one I removed it from had extra holes drilled into the manifold and the original studs removed for the carb. The manifolds appear to be both manufactured in 1985 by the stamps Can I buy a different bottom plate set up or am I out of luck? I really do not want to change the manifold set up if I can avoid it. Thanks, much appreciated.

85' CJ7 Laredo, 383 GM, Turbo 350, NP 203. SOA, 2" frame lift, 34" TSL swampers, Dana 30 open, AMC 20 w/ detroit locker, 4:10's, 1 Piece Mosers, 35" boggers to abuse when needed.

Not sure about the extra holes, but your studs can be removed. Basically, put 2 nuts on and loosen the bottom one (using the top one to lock it in place). Pretty easy to do.

This should give you 4 holes to mount your adapter plate to. The adapter bolts to the intake manifold then another adapter bolts to the first one. The carb gets held to this entire set-up.

Right...there should be two adapter plates. First one bolts on after you remove the stock studs and re-uses the same holes.

The Weber requires an adaptor to mount to the 258 intake.
If your parts jeep had the adaptor it should look like to pieces of AL stacked on top of each other.

Sounds like the PO might have just drilled a new set of holes in the intake.
