    The only company that used the term 6 pack pertaining to carburation was Chrysler. Example 440 -6 pack .General motors or Ford never used that term.

    97s were 2bbl. carbs.if my memory serves me correctly.

    You're right riverhorse, but too late. The wife already dope slapped me on the Stromberg 97 goof. She reminded me that she just rebuilt hers and it was a 2bbl. My bad. It was most likely Carter carbs they were using. Years before Chrysler picked up on the term "6 pack", rodders were using a system of a tube with plates welded on it to fit to the head intakes and 3 single bbl carb bases. There were 2 tubes, one for each head, and the tubes were connected to each other by means of rubber hoses at the base of each carb. They were hell to tune the carbs, progressive linkage didn't work very well, engines constantly ran rich, but they looked great at the auto shows. They came as kits, some kits came with valley covers. The log manifold fad didn't last very long.

    Lots of carbs, lots of tuning, not for the inexperienced. Doesn't matter what you call them, just when you find a man who can make them work, be sure to call him SIR ! ! ! ! ! !

    I agree Dave, didn't mean to argue about it. I just wanted to plop in my $.02 worth of useless nostalga.

    There was a time when I could tune those puppies...

    Today I walk around with a laminated card in my pocket that reads:

    "RIGHTY TIGHTY...LEFTY LOOSEY"

    As you can see, I like to have fun with these posts. I don't take them too serious.

    One of the times I do get serious is when I pick up a tool to work on the rod. After all, my wife, kids, and grandkids are depending on me.

    I think we're all on the same page on that note!

    yuppers

     



    I know what you mean, lakota. The main reason I live hot rods is because you don't have to go by a bunch of silly rules, and you don't have to be a conformist. It's also why I enjoy running my Fords. Lots of guys have bad mouthed my Blue Oval Beasts over the years, but many of the have been looking at the tailights as they said it.

    I'd really like a set that you could flip a switch and on the left tailight the word "YOU" would appear, and on the right the word "LOSE". Why is it so few of the others in the street racing crown like me??????? Never have figured it out ........
