Tri Power Carb adjustment and Procurement help?

I need 3 Rochester styled 2V carbs for my Edelbrock F380 tri power intake!

And I need advice on how best to tune them! That's why I put it in the All Ford side

Who's ran a set of 3 Rochester's on their FE before? I have the intake but now need the carbs, the linkage and the tuning advice that pro's like Mike and Jim have to offer up.

Anyone?


The bolt pattern is 1 1/4" by 1 7/8"

Re: Tri Power Carb adjustment and Procurement help?

I know **** about tuning tri power, but I've learned, by an old car magic man, to put a fuel hose between your ear and the actual carb, adjust it and then make the other ones to sound exactly the same. Work miracles on e.g Dellorto's and Weber's. Cheap and effective

Re: Tri Power Carb adjustment and Procurement help?

Thanks Kul... But the don't actually have any Carburetors...

Not anywhere on the site does it say they have an actual carburetor!

I can buy re-furbished carb base plates for $225 bucks for 3 of them! What the hell? $225 for base plates?

ANYONE wanna by an Edelbrock F380 Tri power intake???

This is going to cost me $5,000 bucks waaaaaaaaaaa!

Re: Tri Power Carb adjustment and Procurement help?

I thought it would help you find the carbs you need-CARB NOS. Then you can E-BAY or swap meet. But you will still need linkage and such. Multi-Carb is for deep pockets...

Re: Tri Power Carb adjustment and Procurement help?

FE,
You can make the linkage you need with some welding or brazing rod, some linkage stops, springs and rod ends. I can get a drawing of a similar set-up through email. I am assuming you are going to use progressive linkage...
To tune them you will need a tuning meter that measures the air flow through each carb. You set the middle carb first with the others closed and the idle mixture screws all the way in. (unless you need to add to the primary idle mix)
Then you set the linkage to open the secondary carbs to the same amount of air flow at a given point. I do have the tool somewhere in my shop but haven't used it in years.

FE,

Are the mounting pads on your intake 3 or four stud? The 4 stud is for Rochesters and the 3 stud for HOLLEY 97 and FORD.

This system will only work on the OEM intake manifold-

All new SixShooter for the Ford FE Engines

Barry Grant's SixShooter has been made available as a multi-carburetor/air cleaner kit to suit all Ford FE-series engines from 332 to 428 cubic engines (1958 to 1976). By coupling a SixShooter to an original intake manifold (not included), this combination is ideal for Ford-powered hot rods and custom rods. With carbs turned rearwards (like the originals) to clear the distributor, this triple two-barrel induction system is beautifully crafted, nostalgic in appearance, and easy to install and tune.

* An original Ford intake manifold must be acquired to complete this kit.
