    So if I call them trip-ducks, do I have to put them on a Stude??? I guess I didn't really know that carb arrangements were brand sensitive!!!!

    They don't really but the "6 pack" name was given to tri powered 440 Mopar engines. didn't ford call there 3-2 setup tripower also? I guess it could be like all the limited slip rear ends, like GM calles them posi-trac and Ford ( I'm not shure ) calles them trac-loc, really it's the same thing and makes no matter.

    I had a '57 Olds with a J-2 motor in the late 60's, called it a six-pack then. Mainly cuz by the time you were done tuning and sychronizing the flippin' things you were ready for a six pack!!!!!


    Not getting on your case Matt. Just getting sick and tired of every dang thing in the world of hot rodding seems to have either a label or be loaded with misconceptions. Everything seems to be getting to be copy cat and catagorized. Gonna give it all up and go back to building scooters, being and individual and being unique is encouraged there.....................

    hope you're planning on side draft Webbers, they used to be the hot setup on the 235's and the big Gimmy inline 6's. Neat stuff !!!!!

    I was looking at the offy intake that used the original 235 Rochester carb w/ the 2 15/16" spacing because I couldn't find a kit that used side draft webbers. I know where to find the carbs but, where do I find the manifold?

There was a post on CHR awhile back with the name of a company making inline chebby stuff, can't remember the name of it. Might try a search??? Somebody is reproducing the Fenton headers for the chebbies, I've senn them, just as kewl as the originals.

    Dave, Not trying to bust your chops here and that may be what You and your buddies called it but according to my book in 57 Oldsmobile called their 3-2 setup a J2 Tri-power.The J2 option came out mid-year and cost a whopping $83.00. It was 371c.i.Rocket V8---!0 to 1 compression 300 horsepower.
    A second J2 option was offered on a limited basis to drag and stock car racers for$395.00.It was not recomended for street use.
    I doubt that this one came with a warranty.

    The only six-pack carburator setup that I have ever heard of was on Chrysler products.

    I don't really care what Oldsmobile called it. Never have been much into what the factory thought it should be called or what it should be used for. What I do know is that for it's day, the car ran very strong !!! After one big wreck with the '57, the motor and trans went into a '50 Olds slantback. A tranny guy buy the name of Jim Haney reworked the automatic, probably one of the first manual valve bodies around this part of the country. The car could more than hold it's own street racing, took lunch money away from a lot of the rich kids driving the "factory hot rods" of the day. Which I had it back.!!!!!!!

    Folks...If memory serves me, isn't a 6-pack comprised of 6 single bbl carbs on a log manifold. The last time I saw a 6-pack, it was 6 Stromberg 97s mounted on an Offenhouser log manifold, but that was back in the 60s. Sorry, but 3 2bbl carbs in line are called tri-power or tripps. JMHO.
