Probably going to run something up off the engine case bolt thats between the cylinders. If not that then something off the top motor mount. Suggestions?

Fuel lines... I wanted to run two petcocks and two fuel lines, but that whole areas so busy now I think I might run one llike an then split it under the carbs..

Im figuring all this stuff out as I go. Its all new to me. I'm pretty excited about gettin er done.

You're just a kid, for Chrissakes. What are you? Mid 20's? Unbelievable skills and vision for a man your age. Damn it, man. Carry on.

Thanks man I appreciate it. Of course yall dont see the 10 times I fuck it up before I get it right once.

I'm also lucky enough to have some real sharp friends that I can call for help or tech questions.

At the risk of sounding completely stupid, what is meant by ACO?

Better bet would be to run two independent L shaped brackets using the cylinder base bolts. Advantages: 1) beefer mounting base (larger bolt and more surface area; 2) shorter brackets; 3) ability to remove each carb (and bowl) independently...

>Fuel lines... I wanted to run two petcocks and two fuel lines, but that whole areas so busy now I think I might run one llike an then split it under the carbs..

I'd stick with one line for sure, split into a Y near the carbs. One option would be to use metal line (steel, not copper) split into a Y, then use a short piece of rubber to each carb. If your skills are up to it, split the line into a Y further back and run steel all the way to each carb. No leaks, less worry about abrasion/heat. Split it further back to give you some wiggle room when pulling only one carb.

One last thing: can't tell from the picture how far back that divider in the intake goes, but if it's not too far (meaning the carb's input isn't differenciated too much), you might consider a progressive linkage for the carbs. Linkerts don't flow *that* much, so you don't really need it, but it could make tuning it a bit easier and increase your mileage a bit...

Much better idea. Ill probably do that.

Split it further back to give you some wiggle room when pulling only one carb.

I like the idea. I've never done any hard lines before. Ill probably give it a shot once its completely done. I've got so many other things to do that take more time then I have that I dont wanna add it to the "right now" list, but time permitting Ill go for it.

I'm with ya on this one. There actually is no divider in the intake at all and the plan is to run a progressive linkage where im running idle to mid on the small rear carb (m61b) and mid range and up on both carbs - the front one being an larger M74b

Thanks for the info. Always up for new ideas.

I dont know if anyone here ever deals with Rick T in Florida for carbs (ABCGang) on ebay, but he is a damn good guy to deal with. I sent him the other linkert to rebuild after he did my first one. He calls to tell me it arrived yesterday and today I got these pics via email. Hows that for turn around time?

Rick is Sinner1 on here, and he's great to deal with directly too.

The project looks great.

I dont know about the double Ls though...

I wonder:

- apart from the looks (...) why to Ls in single intake manifold (torbulence issues)?

- what kinda fire you'll have to smoke all that gas ?


cheers

its an 84 inch stroker built by truett and osborne. i was told one linkert would not be enough for the motor so I went with two! plus dual carbs are badass. the guy who built the manifold has had experience using them in the past on knuckleheads with good sucess. I aint worried about it other then the ass pain of getting it started the first time.

as for fire Ill be running a morris g5 magneto thats in the mail as we speak. Thanks blackcrown!
