MOPAR or CHEVY TRI-POWER

OK i have a vette tri-power BBC intake i want to run. my question is will the Mopar Holley carbs be direct replacement . 1 will they bolt on my intake. 2 would the vette air cleaner drop on these? i know the linkage would have to modified. the reason for this is the Mopar carbs are cheaper. this is a street rod not a vette. thanks for your help.

my memory fails me but here goes......... IF the original carbs were Rochesters then the answer is no because the hollies are bigger. have you eyeballed the hollies? It is very obvious, the hollies look like 1/2 of a quad right down to the fuel bowl

Mopar Or Chevy Tri-power

The '67 thru '69 Corvette big block Tri-powers used Holleys as did the big block Mopars. I have a '69 Tri-power Corvette and at one time used a Mopar center carb because it flows a little more air. The Holleys used on the Mopars will fit your Chevy manifold and the air cleaner will fit as on the original carbs. As you said, the linkage may take some work ... I may have used the base from the Corvette Holley on the Mopar Holley ... I do not remember for sure. How much do the Corvette Holleys cost these days?

If you for some silly reason decide to not use that tri-power setup----
could always send it to me

It would look pretty cool in the 59----454ho crate
