tri-power

Post by chucklz » Thu 10. Sep 2009, 12:55

I came across and E-brock 3x2 with 2 carbs on it. The carbs look like Autolite 2100's. What's this worth? Can I use rochester 2g's if I can't find a 3rd carb. Are there supposed to be phenolic spacers?

I have done the 2x4 game and would love to try the 3x2 game. Can I hear from some of the MEL experts?

Chuck, if you decide not to use that manifold, I would be very interested in it... or any other one you hear about...Thanks.

What CID is the engine......
It is very likely that Autolite 2100's were used ...A very good simple carb.....

I was told they were Strom WW's I posted pics on th HAMB for an ID help. I have the same user name there. I would love to get it but its out of my price range. I have a couple of Rochester 2g's I am saving for a 2x2 set up on my Baby Lincoln. I am told these are great for WW refits. I will try to pull the pics from the HAMB and dump on here.

I posted on the HAMB too but did you end up with it??? We can help you out getting it fixed up if you need it.

No I did not get it. The WW's are gone and the price is still the same, firm. I gleaned the 430 and 462 MEL intakes are different and do not interchange without intensive fab. I may be getting a '64 Continental missing its drive train, I will keep you posted

If any of you are seeking a manifold, you would be wise to buy it when you find it.. This complete setup sold for $3550 US

That was one heck of a price. Someone really got a great deal.

My sense is that these sets often go around 5 grand yes?
