Tri power carb linkage

I am looking into purchasing Edelebrock's Tri power manifold for my small block chev. I'll probably go to 3 Rochesters. My question is who sells the carb progressive linkage for this application. Edelbrock doesn't show a listing and I've searched around and can't find anyone. Does this mean I have to fabricate it myself? Also what alterations do I have to make to the carbs besides removing the chokes from the front and back carbs. I want to be able to run the engine from the centre carb and about the half way point kick the other two in. This will also mean increasing jet size to the centre carb as to not starve the motor for fuel..Right?...

Try this site:

They had tri-power linkage for a Vette. Also try a Google search for carburetor linkage.

Yup sure have. I had it on a big block a number of years ago. I had it set up perfectly. There is something about the sound of dueces cutting in at higher RPMs that I like and they look sweet on a motor...

Tri-power is cool. For linkage, this outfit makes what looks like a pretty good setup. http://www.carbs.net/tripower.htm

Hemmi..... As far as tuning the carbs you have to experiment with the jets. The best way to do it is on a dyno. Then you can really see what's going on with every change.
I also could't get into Chicago Corvette as their site seems to be down.
