A friend just offered me first shot at his stock tri-power from a 62 Ford that he junked in the 80s. His price was way over the top and wasn't worth it to resell and this is why I have no interest in ever using tri-power again. This was my 25,000 mile great running 1969 427/435HP Vette. No clue there was any problems with the carb but one day it backfired and the starter was too hot to crank fast enough to suck down the flame. Flames were shooting out before I even realized what was happening. I had a small carb fire in my 66 GTO also. If you own an older car, ALWAYS CARRY A FIRE EXTINGUISHER even if you don't have a tri-power.
