I want to put two, 2 barrel carbs on my 76' 232. Anyone know if these are available somewhere?:confused:

    Whaaaaas up Royer?!?! Since it looks like nobody looks at this area here. Let me tell you my secret plan.:D I want to put a twin-H looking set up on my rat rod!! Muahahaha, genius! No?!?! haha I figure if I can get the intake and carbs, I'll make the air cleaners. ...Don't tell anyone, but I'm thinking of making them in copper! Cool, no? What do you think?:D

    By the way, since it's just you and me. What have you been up to bro?:)
  • After I posted the webers, it dawned on me that you might be wanting to put Twin H on your Essex. It sounds like a good idea to me...but you might have to make your own two carb manifold. Or put on a 4bbl Clifford manifold and connect the two aircleaners with a cross section, sort of how the guy here in Vegas did with his supercharged Hornet. BTW, copper works for me, it'll get a nice patina after a bit.

    Nothing much going on here, just work, work, work. It's a lot of just 'being here' stuff here at work, so I do get some time to read the forum! I just need to figure out how to get my Hudson in the piano showroom so I can work on it while I'm here...

    Maybe I'm just day dreaming, I'll probably never get around to it. But, I think the Twin-H thing would be cool. With all of the jeeps and AMC stuff out there I can't believe nobody ever did a 2 2barrel set up for a 232.

    As for your car at work, maybe you could put up a movable screen around it. Like they had in the olden days for the ladies when they wanted to change thier clothes? That might work.:D
  • Yeah, but getting it in the front door might be tricky.

    Hey, are you bringing the rat rod to San Jose? The old guys will need something to talk about!

    Hey Royer, what's up man? Well I guess I've looked all I can to find the intake that I wanted. It doesn't exist. I did however pick up a little metal melter that would allow me to cast my own!!!:eek: Wouldn't that be cool. I guess all I need now is someone to tell me it can't be done, or someone to double dog dare me!!! haha:D

    Oh and as far as getting your car in your show room, have you thought about maybe tipping it up on it's side? haha:D

    By the way, the rat rod is a bit unsafe to be out on the road (for me). Maybe one day though.:)
