Anyone good at balancing Carbs?

Recommended Posts

Triple deuce on a Chevy I’m working on. One of the best sounding induction noises I’ve ever heard

Definitely not my cup of tea but surely I could pull some strings and get it done...there is a old Baloch guy who does only carburetor rebuild and tuning I had my Tercel and few other cars through him...

Is this Chevy a project?

If it is, the first thing I would do is to check and rebuild the carb spindles, and then fabricate a proper linkage between the carbs to remove all free play. Looking at this setup, there is no way you will ever get those carbs synchronized, let alone balanced- even with calibrated vacuum gauges.

Well not much difference between carbohydrates and carburettors. Both constantly give you endless problems

Yeah it’s a project. I’ve got it running so it’s going on the back burner for a while until I finish some more important stuff.

The triple deuce used to be a popular setup with hot rodders in the US of A back in the day but personally, I don’t get it. 4 twin choke carbs on an 8 cylinder make more sense, one choke for each cylinder. Even a pair of 4 barrels if you want to make it simpler. 6 chokes between 8 cylinders, the numbers don’t add up. 

But, it’s period correct for the car and it’s unique so it’s staying.

I've always found this set up weird, but somehow they go it to work based on the firing order, which limits scavenging during valve overlap. I agree though, one barrel for each cylinder makes more sense.
