Title: Carb choices...
Post by: R. Dave Carr on December 18, 2011, 01:53:23 PM
Gentlemen.  Soon I will have my old '67 Newpie back in my posession.  It has a stock 2 barrell now which has issues.  My thinking is that I would acquire a new 4 barrell carb and manifold, and have new dual exhaust installed.  Completely stock 383, with electronic ignition.  I'm going to use this is a cruiser, not a racer.  Any reccomendations?

There's that $375 383 with a dual plane intake that looked pretty good to me, dual exhaust and an H pipe to tie the two together, 2.5 inches in diameter pipes and Dynomax makes a really sweet sounding muffler.

I think I have a good core here of a 2 BBL.  You want it?

I've ran cars with four year old gas a time or two. No record blasting quarter mile runs or anything, but it does still burn.

Where'd you see that Carb and dual plane?

This gas would only be 2 years old, but I think she's just plain out of fuel.

Look for the topic of $375 383, Steve knows where it is, near him actually.

I do have a stock 383 small bore intake manifold off my 68 Charger I might be willing to part with. These things weight a ton, so postage would be expensive though.

Wonder how much to 97502?  As opposed to buying an Edelbrock or something....

They are closer than I am, personally, would go with the whole engine, extra parts are always good.
