Re: 63-64 430 MEL head and cylinder combustion chamber size

My engine is a 1959 block and head, with the big intake ports on the heads. I had to use an earlier one to accomodate the FoMoCo tripower..... no combustion chamber.

Re: 63-64 430 MEL head and cylinder combustion chamber size

I bought my pistons from another member here, after he wanted slightly more compression. This piston is 9.625 to 1, but the work order and forging number may help Wiseco. These are the wiseco work order numbers


Customer no: 136047
Part no: AW-01915
Forging no: F6149TDXA1

A custom run was ...

Re: Edelbrock L300

The middle carburetor is the only one that has idle and choke circuits. The two outer carburetors are 'dumpers' that advance as the linkage asks them to. While the three carburetors may total over 1000 CFM , this is not an indication of comparison between a four barrel carburetor and a tri power. Ho...
