    Thanks. In my mind, these intakes look like what the earliest guys built for their roadsters. They just look so simple, but I know of a few that ran terrible.
    I will build one for my big cad, and I am willing to deal with the hassle and possible negative performance, but I hope to learn from past lessons if possible, and at least start with a design that has a chance of success.

    Any one have good pictures of linkages with two rows of carbs? What is the best way to make them work in unison?
    Thanks!

    That looks great! What's the engine out of? And what carbs are you running?

    I had it in a '36 Plymouth Coupe about ten years ago, not too many pictures of it with that setup but it ran very strong

    built for street strip 454 with Chevy rectangle heads
    typical late 60's style big block stuff put together right

    here's a crappy old clip of it when I first put it on

    Real hot rods have lots of carbs..... [​IMG]

    A small block Chev with a 4 barrel may perform well but it doesn't look like a hot rod motor.

    I built this set up for a Y block Ford many years ago.

    And this one for a GMC six...............

    I have always run multi carb set ups on all of my cars and unfortunately I do not have any photos to post because I am in the process of moving. But since I run mainly small block Fords there is not a lot of variations to post but the one that I would love to get would be the inline Autolite if I could find one. I have seen a couple at the big Ford swap meet in Columbus Ohio through the years but they were not cheap!

    That is awesome! This is what I want to build on my 472. It looks like the carbs are feeding the cylinder on the opposite side of the engine from their mounting position. Do they also have some sort of balance chamber tying them together? Is idle running off of all carbs or just two? Are the throttles running together or progressive? Thanks for posting.

  23. Pretty sure that's for a Y-Block Ford or Mercury

    This is mine... 6 Holley 94's on a 354 Hemi, runs fine on the street. I'm using a progressive linkage, mainly runs on the two middle carbs.

    I have some shots without the carb bodies, also have some video of the linkages moving. A bit boring but might be of interest on my website:

    Its a bit messy but it also connects to the tv cable for the 700r4. Takes a lot of effort to push the pedal down :D

    Neat throttle linkage. When I built my six carb set it took ages to set up the linkages.
     
  30. Thought I would bring this back up, love multi carbs.
