Post Three-Deuce manifold

I really like the way how a 3-2 bbrl looks on a engine and would like to put one on a 350 chevy.

I have heard though that they are really hard to tune on an engine and aren't really worth it. I was just wondering your guys opinion thinking that someone has a set up like that here.

Also are they any good for just everyday use or are they more of a show?

Is there much of a gas improvement with them or are they a gas pig?

Do they have more performance then a regular 4 bbrl carb?

Another question i had pretty much goes with the rest of the questions exept it is for 2-4 bbrl carbs.

I just want something a little different then everybody else in the parking lot. Thanks!

I love the way three dueces looks.I would think if tuned right they would be a great street intake cause ya run on a 2bbl till ya pop it.I also think theres only an air/fuel on the center carb(not sure).I've also heard that if ya don't rebuild all the carbs at once you get problems. I'd go for it and just pick up tuning tips along the way,would definitl be a break from the run of the mill single 4bbl.

Geez Louise. The more things change the more they stay the same. We were all real happy when the large single 4 barrels became available so we could get rid of the multi carb hassles. It was/is so much easier and efficient (cheaper) to only deal with one unit a lot of the trips just got thrown under the bench and rotted away. Besides it was a bit unusual to have just one monster Holley carb.

I suppose it would be dependent on what you are putting together on whether the three twos would look right. Might be weird on a 78 Monte or Cutlass. They aren't the easiest things to get setup right but there ar a few old Rochester books on E-Bay that will get you headed in the right direction. EElco made a bunch of different linkages at the time they were popular and I think Moon is selling copies now.

Have at and have fun.

Sure 3 dueces is great. If three is good how about four? I'm getting ready to moumt four Holley 94s onto my 1956 324 Olds bored (?)over( still in the shop. And the reason is, I have had the set up for what seems like forever and am going to do it. Maybe two primary and two secondary carbs with progressive linkage.

Vintage Speed ( <a href="http://www.vintagespeed.com/carbs)has" target="_blank">www.vintagespeed.com/carbs)has</a> every thing you may need.

Good luck

It is obviously doable because they were stock on several applications in the late 60's. Any multi carb application is going to be a tuning headache.

They very definately are not as efficient as a 4 barrel and the improvement of manifolds today will even amplify that. So you will give away performance if you are presently running a properly sized 4 barrel.

But they do look great and Edelbrock has manifolds for multi carbs.

I think they look better on street rods where on a later model V8 they give the appearance that several stacks had on a flathead.

A three deuce set-up will work well if set up properly. Here are a couple of pointers to remember if you try this.
1. Your outer carbs should have the idle circuits removed. {You either have to modify normal 2 barrel rochesters, or find original tri-power outboard carbs. {hard to find} and pricey.
2. You MUST eliminate vacuum leaks around throttle shafts, and your outboard carburetors should have special throttle blades to eliminate any chance of a vacuum leak here.
3. You must get out your wallet, most turn key tri-power carb set ups go for over a thousand bucks if they are any good. <a href="http://www.hotrodcarbs.com" target="_blank">www.hotrodcarbs.com</a>
has nice stuff, and they run good.
4. A tripower system will make good horsepower up to around 5500 RPM, after that, she's all done.

Honestly I have thought about doing the triple duece setup in a early 80s wagon I was considering buying, just because it would be different.
