dual carb intake and exhaust from a 41 248 ci on a 53 263

Recommended Posts

The drivers side motor mount "tower" would need to be lowered to clear front exhaust manifold. Forgot to add that the way to gauge height of mount tower, is to turn the engine plate upside down and when bolted back on gives the height the tower needs to be at. Bolting the setup to a 263" engine, however, is not an issue, except if using a 1948 up chassis which changed the front motor mounts from the front timing cover plate to the four bolt mounts on both sides of engine.

Thanks for the info.

I'm looking at a 53 Special hdtp with a stick shift. 

The dual carb set up with the dual exhaust manifold 

would make the car jump !

Wife not too happy about this , I'm still working on my 

55 Century model 68 clone with 3 deuces .

It was always my father's trick that when he bought an old car, he would give it to my mother. She eventually owned about a half-dozen old cars she could neither start nor drive, but how many of her friends were able to claim their husbands bought them a car for their birthday every few years? 


They're divorced, so take that for what you will...
