    Only Grumpy made two 1050s work on his 327 lol

    Don't have a pair of carbs yet, My dumpster contains 1 Proform 750 vacuum secondary,
    1 Holley 700 dp, 1 Holley 850 dp in pic., 1 Quick Fuel center 1050 dp in pic, and a edelbrock 500.

    So got to find a pair or a mate to one of these, I am hoping to find something at the Jefferson swap meet
    coming up end of April.

    Ya, they make them every day, but I am cheap,cheap, cheap, and like dumpster diving,
    That is the only way the Sugar Mama lets me build what I got. :rolleyes:
    Hoping to put together two 750 dps, should be about right.

    The top of the piston and a wedge-shaped part of the bore makes up the chamber on a 348/409 motor.....Not like that big,beautiful,half-a basketball chamber shape you're rockin' with "El Grandé Hemisphero" Tony.

    Speaking of 409's Salty, one of the guys in our gasser group is building a SEG legal 63 Nova 409 4 speed car. Not sure if it will be there this year or not.
