  2. Sweet. Love the look of multiple carbs. I hope they behave themselves though.

    Nicely solved, all around... loving the linkage.

    And not too often will a blown, four-carb mill be a step toward slowing it down...

    471 blown y-block with 4x2s is pretty fucking cool. The 4x2 top and linkage turned out really nice. Do you plan on putting this on the dyno to get the carbs dialed in?

    Nice stuff! I would love to see more photos of the machining process, welding, etc on the intake.

    That linkage is BITCHIN' man! Clive is one talented dude!

    EDIT: Rick Pearmain is one talented dude, but I suspect Clive has no less talent!!!

    Shit.


    Tha's slicks and there looks like no room for error. Some very tight tolerances to work around. Nice work on all accounts.

  25. Clive is a great guy! Helped me out with some new 97s for my Y-Block. I'll be runnin' four also but with no blower. Maybe the two cars should meet one day. ;)

    BTW. That fuel line set up above does look cool!

  28. Ryan -

    Thanks for the update on "Project 38"!

    The intake manifold, Stromberg 97s, & linkage look bitchin'!

    Clive Prew (err I mean, Rick Pearmain) does very nice work!

    I believe your "blower topper" deserves the "Kate Upton Seal Of Approval": nun in a bikini.jpg :D
