    can't say that that ever me... all the rest of my multi carb setups run all the carbs, If that one had a modified engine I may have made all the carbs work but honestly, I drive that car like an old man, low and slow.. My corvette on the other hand I drive like I don't have a nickel in it....

    upload_2020-4-29_4-0-9.png April-May 1960 Lions Dragstrip

    Our multiple carb set up was first used on a 283 SBCwith 6 Strombergs on an old 60’s Weiand Manifold in March 1960. We bought the 283 long block from a tiny speed shop hidden in a residential area of Long Beach. (kind of like our own, small garage shop) We got the motor completely built with locally bought, speed stuff and put it into our 40 Willys coupe.

    With the 6 Strombergs fully adjusted, it ran well for a first time build. The light weight of the Willys, the 283 SBC with 6 Strombergs got put into the B/Gas class. It was competitive, but not against the top of the class. We were way off those top times and speeds. But, it was our first time build and racing adventure. It was fast for a street legal coupe, but not as fast as the top competitors at the time, Jr. Thompson, Doug Cook, K,S. Pittman, Al Hirshfield, etc.

    Then several months later, with more racing under our belts, we upgraded that same motor to a 292 c.i. (plus more internal blower grade speed stuff), went to a new Isky Gilmer 671 Belt Drive and the Edlebrock blower manifold for the 671 blower on this motor in May 1960.
    Since we could not afford the two port Hilborn Injectors at the time, the 6 Strombergs went on a new, flat Weiand manifold on top of the 671

    The initial tune up of the 6 Strombergs on the SBC was hectic, to say the least. Adjusting one carb was hard enough, let alone 5 more. But, let us just say that it took the longest of anything on the first time build. Once, it was adjusted, it made such a great sound when revved up. If you thought a single 4 barrel carb with the air cleaner removed made a sucking sound, 6 two barrels easily made more horsepower and a more powerful sound.


    The crazy thing was that later on in the rebuild, when we put the fully adjusted, 6 Strombergs on top of the 671 blower, we thought they were already adjusted and should have run well on the start up… That was not the case. It must have taken us a few more tries to get everything in good working order for the drags. Who needed those fancy, expensive, two port Hilborn Injectors? These Strombergs worked well on top of the 671 and made it super powerful.

    OMG ! So many Fords without a Ford, Mopars without a Mopar. Didn't look to see if any GM without a GM. When will the rioting start ?

    I ran into a little issue with my trio of 97's on the '34 that I thought might fit well in this thread. With all three carbs open (progressive linkage) the choke plates would suck closed a bit (471 blower) on carbs 1 & 3 and as a result the fast idle cams would create a 1300 PRM idle at the next stop light until I got out and pulled it back manually. I asked Clive @ Stromberg how to remedy and he sent me these
    Simply remove the large fulcrum bolt, pull the detent and spring out of the carb and inset this little piece.
    All you have to do is remove the detent pin and spring pictured here
    and install the new lock out pin $7.50 @ summit Racing
    It engages the holes in the linkage and locks out the choke in minutes. Now only my center carb has a functioning choke on a cable to the dash and I don't have to worry about the outer two hanging up any longer.

    Hope it helps.
