Post How to ID types of Carb on Tri-Power Set up

Very new to cars, how do I identify the types of Carbs on my Tri-Power Setup. I have a 289 HiPo and I am looking to put a new 600 CFM Holly 4 gun on it.
I was able to pull a couple different sets of numbers off each 2 barrel... where should I be looking to find out what I am running currently?

Thanks...

Hollys usually have the code for the carb on the front side of the choke housing. Heres their site for referance.

On this housing... I see "C44F", "9510" and "2882". This is just on the front carb... on the middle, the "2882" reads "2881". Also, if I look down on the main body, there is a 4 digit number that is different on all 3 carbs. They are(from front to back): 4516, 5673, 5563.

Fella's, I'm lost here.

the 9510 is the Ford # for carbs, it must be a factory set-up. The 4 digit is the one you are probably looking for. There is a website that specifically deals with Ford trip set-ups, I can't seem to find it in my favorites right now but it's something like gerecanyon.com

Go to Recarbco Carburetor Co's web site at <a href="http://www.recarbco.com" target="_blank">www.recarbco.com</a> and email them those numbers and they can most likely help you identify those carbs.

Nicely done!

As you can see by my avatar, I have the same catalog. But mine must be a little earlier since the price is $210.55 in mine (original 1965).

I'll take three at that price please.

How much would the 6 pack setup below be worth used?

Would the setup below provide more/less/same amount of HP as a new Holley 600CFM 4 gun with a dual plane intake?

Go to the URL mstngjoe gave you and you will get a basic idea of what it is worth.

DON'T GIVE IT AWAY!

I've seen reconditoned/repop complete setups go for $1800. The price you get may vary depending upon condition/completeness and the need to rebuild the carbs.
