tripower

while browsing the net I came across several pictures of a 429 bigblock with tripower that sent me searching as to where I could get such an animal but haven't found any place yet, so if anyone knows where I could get one please let me know dual quads are no problem to find but trips would be awesome thanks

Find yourself an OLD rodder from the late 70's -early 80's who might still have an old Offenhauser catalog. Offy use to make intakes for anything you could imagine. I know Offy did make a tri-power for 429's but the number escapes me. Is this the picture you found?

yes thats the picture I found and you say offy used to make them, I guess thats a start I didn't know who made it. I have a few bigblocks and will probably put one in my 65 fairlane and a trip setup would be the thing I'd like to use on it. I have a set of matching AFBs if I were to go with the dual quad intake

Beautifull setup. Looks like the '57 Olds
J2 top end.

While on the subject, did anybody ever make a small block tripower setup?

Ford made and sold a few small block tripower setups but it will cost about 2K at a swap meet complete, dont know if there are any aftermarket offerings.

This horse runs.

Don't forget Holman Moody (yes THAT Holman Moody) still makes them: http://www.holmanmoody.com/parts/hardpart.htm .
I think blue Thunder still makes them too: http://www.bluethunderauto.com/ , http://www.cobranda.com/GetItemDetai...D=344&DeptID=6 .


A little off topic, I just got the new book on Holman Moody for my birthday- it kicks ass!
