It would be easier if I knew just what you want to do? All you need to make the carb function is supply fuel. If you are NOT going to use the Turbo Rocket Fluid injection system or boost control parts, then you will need to block all the ports on the carb and throttle body, including the water preheat lines going to the throttle body. You will need to “hold open” the boost limit butterfly valve in the throttle body too. If needed, you can keep two vacuum ports open, one for the distributor vacuum advance and one for the PCV valve operation. Seal all other ports and the carb/throttle body will supply fuel/air to make an engine run, depending on just how you attach this contraption to the intake manifold?
There are pics of the carb/throttle body in the Jetfire Supplement book and the 1963 Olds Service Manual.
