3 CARB MANIFOLD...

Post by gravelman » Wed May 02, 2018 6:26 pm

Howdy,

I've got the headers worked out, now I'm thinking about how to get fuel to the mighty 390... I've had a 750 Double Pumper, but I wanted something that had more wow factor. I consider some throttle body injectors, but the cost was over the moon. The injector carb is another option, but visually it doesn't appeal to me.

Has anyone used the 3 carb manifold set up? I'm sure it's tricky to set up, probably it doesn't put out any more performance, maybe less performance than the double pumper and I guess you would have to consider reliability.

I think it would be cool looking if it gave decent performance and a measure of reliability? Can anyone give a testimonial good or bad about the use of these?

Thanks,

Mitch

Yes, Ford Motor Company offered a tri-power 390 in 1962 and 1963 Thunderbirds. These are the rare and prized M-code roadsters. If you collect all the parts from this setup, it will bolt on and fit under the hood of a 64-66 Thunderbird.

Last tri power I saw for sale was about $2500. I myself would look at a fuel injected system. Try Fitech about $1400 or look a this thread http://fepower.net/simplemachinesforum/ ... ic=3815.45
