    Can I see some pic.s of your tri power linkages? I'm having trouble figuring out how to set mine up. (Stromberg 97s on an Edelbrock intake)

    Couldn't take a picture of mine but this is the same set-up I'm running. The issue I'm having is the areas in red are hitting the intake, not allowing the linkage to cycle. Any ideas on how to fix it?

    I had a similar issue with the linkage hitting the intake on my Nailhead. I had enough meat on the intake and was able to file some flats onto it for clearance.

    The thing I think you need to do is run the secondary linkage above the throttle shafts instead of below. Then they will push to open instead of pull to open.

    Three things..1. grind the dimples off..2. risers(1").. 3. make a tight linkage setup..
