Hello, does anyone know if there is a tri-power setup that will work on a ’63 MEL 430. If you have heard of one can bolting one up to a stock rebuilt engine increase performance and how?

Yes It Will.....but It will not allow the hood to shut on a slab-side. This guy had to add a scoop, although it is not gaudy (in my opinion). There is very little space under the hood on the 61/ LINC. They actually lowered the carb pad from the 58/60 LINC. So it would be difficult to retro-fit an earlier 4V manifold also.

The most signicant increase in HP you would see right now is the addition of electronic ignition and having the distributor recurved, along with a little carburetor work.

Is this soemthing I can do myself? I'm in Los Angeles. If I need a qualified Pro where do you suggest I go? What exactly am I trying to do? Can you give me manufacturers and part numbers?
