    karbs 001.JPG karbs 003.JPG You're welcome spanners. I went to a Ford only salvage yard and found the last 1.08 venturi carb he had. Finished the fuel lines and throttle linkage. Have to rebuild the middle carb and modify the scoop
    I should have taken FTF's advice and played with the two carb set up. But, there's fabricating involved in changing to 3 two's. I couldn't resist.

    Thanks for the nice comment Dick. I think it's a bit sexy too. Have a great time at Eagle Field this weekend.

  6. Bob triple duece set up looks good.What length are your headers and have you thought what a different length might do performance wise?

    300racer, The headers were built with appearance in mind. No science in them. The car would no doubt be quicker with carefully selected length 3 into 1 primary pipes with the proper sized collectors and extensions.
    Next season we're gonna wring maximum performance out of it without any major changes.
    BTW, Driver Dave did some hits in the driveway and it left very strong. Better than with the 2 carbs.

    There's a Jeep 6 powered dragster rolling around in my mind...

    You know what they say. Pictures, or it didn't happen.

    spanners, I'd show pics of the rubber in the driveway but it will be covered with snow in the morning.

    If you're referring to the idea floating around in my mind, I have collected some parts. Here's the 4.0 Jeep block. I get a 4.2 crank in a couple weeks. Thinking of parting out my Crosley in the avatar for the rear end, trans, fuel cell, gauges, and more. I have an Anglia front axle assembly also. Not sure if it will be HAMB-style or Chassis Research-style FED. other side 001.JPG
