That thing would be a nightmare in a crosswind.

I just noticed it's a C cab, not much weather protection for the driver.

5 two barrels was displaced with easier to control 3-2s then 4 barrels finally injection. But they looked way cool.

Syncing those carburetors would be a nightmare.

That's why removing the idle and low speed jets from the four outboard carbs is the best bet. Then sync the best you can and tell everyone it's your secret progressive set up. :haha:

I've seen a Unisyn used on a European engine with two carbs and the owner said he was happy with it, but I don't know if he actually knew what he was doing or not. As I understand it the Unisyn measures air flow and depends on jet size for proper fuel to match.

I linked to that simple device because it worked wonderfully on a Bristol 100D with three Solexes I had for many years.

That's good to know. We see so many gadgets on the market that promise the world but are crap, it's nice to get first hand experience to go by.

Bristol 100D, that's one of them foreign jobs, I'll have to notify ICE to administer the pledge of allegiance.
Just kidding you Jim, my brother races Mazdas, and is on the National Board of the SCCA representing the New England Reagion. :lol:

These are sweet, I've driven a few and had one for a short time. Civilized, comfy and quiet. The last 2 years were hard to get because the FBI and Secret Service snapped them up by the trainload.

Want to break it so you can justify buying a new one? I've got just the thing...

Undertoad 12-21-2019 11:05 AM

just look at that car

would you look at that?

Diaphone Jim 12-21-2019 01:04 PM

I didn't know about all those specialty fuels.
Le Mans could be expensive.
Or the Cannonball.
