What size venturi & throttle? Looks like a Holley aluminum replacement main body wrapped in TC's preferred hardware.

Finally had the plate off, and the jets are above the fuel. Can I just drill and tap them into the lower hole? Or should I get a different metering block from someone who knows how to set one up?

You can drill and tap them. By hand, not with a power drill. Get in touch with Thumper for details.
