Default S&S carb interchange?

Hi guys,
Getting frustrated with searches, so I gotta ask.
I just picked up my first Panhead and plans are to run a Super E.
I would like to know if the flange for carb mounting is the same for all S&S carbs, L, B,E and G?
The engine came with a manifold and Keihen "butterfly" carb.
Can I bolt the E directly to this manifold?

Thanks in advance

No the Keihin's throat diameter is smaller than an S&S. The same manifold used to mount an old Super B also fits the later E carb. I believe its also the same for D's & G's but have no experience with engines that needed THAT much carburetion, so can't say for sure.

According to Harold's Panifold page, the S&Ss can all four bolt up. I'd run his panifold if one hadn't come with my S&S kit.

The flange will bolt up to any S&S super B, E or G carb as well as S&S L series carbs. If you have plumber style intake ports you can buy a steel adapter nipple kit made by Colony to covert your heads to o-ring style.

Thanks,
I saw the Panifold, and thought that's the way every "T" manifold should be.
My heads are 1955, so O-ring already. I have access to an early S&S intake so you have answered my question.
I would love to get a Panifold, unfortunately the Canadian dollar loses me 40%, so the 150.00 quickly becomes 198.00 plus shipping ++etc...

the super B - E are the same as well as the earlier L series manifolds

The super D and G are too big for the B AND E manifold and unless you are running nitro the pan is way too small for ether

pans can be tuned for the E quite well with out any add on gizmos
