HELP Installing new carb on 460

My 1985 Ford F250 with the stock motorcraft/holley 4180c needs a new carb. Yesterday my local autoparts store sold me the 0-80457S Holley 4160 carb and said it was a easy bolt on .... upon removing the old carb I see they were drastically wrong. BIG QUESTION ... will the new holley work on my stock engine? I see it has no venturi vent hookups for the big hoses ... can I delete those with no ill effects? And which port do I hook up the EGR valve to? Basically I am wondering if I need to return this new carb and try and find a more direct bolt on OR if you guys know how to make it fit. PLEASE HELP

You really need to post these questions in the "Engine Tech" section. You are in the wrong area...
