new tripower purchase!
 
2 Attachment(s)
Well someone made a mad suggestion in another thread that I should consider moving to a 3x2 setup, so I did!

Just bought the manifold, carbs and linkage etc and ordered the air filters this PM from vintage speed.

All being fitted to my old-school '29 highboy

Cant wait!!!! :cool:

Now, where in blazes do I get the bracketry to connect the cable to the linkage...hmmm

Dang dude! I was half-heartedly joking about that and the other half was being serious. Looks like you decided to stay with the Chevy engine so when's the 4-speed going in it?

Good job on the 3X2's anyway. It's gonna be cool.

Do you have the carb linkage?

Coldknock, too late, prurchases made, invoice in the mail to you! ;-)

Seriously though, you did get me thinking. I spent a few days checking out options and add to that the fact that the existing carb/manifold setup has a few issues and needed a couple of hundred spending to replace the carb abyway.

KULTULZ yes I do have the carb linkage, thanks. Based upon the posted photos do you think the throttle cable bracket you posted will fit??

Thanks,
Paul

Is that a progressive linkage?

I am pretty sure it is for the ROCHESTER 2GC. It will allow you to hook a LOKAR throttle cable up. It is all described in their website.

I don't believe it is. I found that photo on the ROCHESTER CARB website. He has about anything you need for ROCH multiple carburetion.

I redid a PONTIAC 3X2 set for a guy way back when... :welcome:

Gotta love those 3x2's. Here's a set for a small block Chevy that I was going to install in the wife's car but she didn't want it :nono: .

I'm sure I'll find a use for it ;) .
