tripower probs.

Hi.

I am a Danish dude with a couple of galaxies in the garage.

My 64 fastback has 428 heads, mallory dual breaker distributor, cast iron hedders and tripower with three holleys, 4 speed toploader.

Everything has been rebuilt, incl. the carbs, but the engine does not seem to run at it´s prime, when i hit the pedal, it seems to "blow" out between 1000-15-1800 rpm, looses all it´s power, if i pump the pedal lightly it awakes again with a great ROAAAAAR if i may add, but it´s very anoying and not very "streetfreindly" The cam is comp cams 280 H

Any ideas?? I have tryed to adjust the ignition, linkage, but with little result.


BUT when it runs above 2000 rpms, it most certainly is a feeling that puts you back in the seat!!!!!

Ford FE Tri Power Systems by HP Trends get the rebuild and tuning download. It's the best $20 you'll spend.

Re: tripower probs.

Well, it seems that the carbs was not the problem, it was the ignition coil.
I replaced the original coil with an aftermarked 12 volt thing but i missed that the old coil was only made for 7-9 volts and was fed through a resistor wire that decreased the power to 7-9 volts, so i put in a new wire from the ignition switch and that made all the difference, starts much better up, idles when cold, and not but not least gives a hell of a lot more power when driving it.

So here´s a very happy Dane for you.
