    Dual quads 318 poly feaseable?

    Howdy all,

    I have a stock 66 Fury with 318 2 barrel with 100k miles. I was thinking it would be fun to buy a stock dual quad setup for it.

    Is the secondary carb have to be a special one only for the 2 carb set up? What carbs would I use?

    Is linkage going to be a bear or can I rig something up without changing the stock cable?

    Does anyone here have the parts i might need?

    Thx!!

    You can drop any fantasies you have about putting dual quads on that right now.
    Please, don't make me explain why.

    It can be done, but I think you'll end up over fueling the poly.
    Here is a pic of a poly (not sure on ci) in a 59 Fury, the guy had paid mega $$$$$$ for this intake due to the fact that they are pretty rare, he had edlebrocks on it but I didn't ask what size they are as I was stunned mute by the absolute beauty and attention to detail on his car

    I've seen dual quad poly intakes at swap meets averaging 200 bucks. The carbs that fit the dual quad intake are the old pot metal WCFB's. As far as I know the two carbs are the same front and rear. I don't know of other carbs that fit those intakes, although there may be others. Spread bore carbs will not fit. Adapters for Holleys or AFB's could probably be milled by a competant machinist but price could be an issue. The linkage could be fabricated if you have trouble finding an original. Here http://www.moparmecca.com/is a link to poly performance parts. Her is an interesting article from Mopar Muscle magazine on a 402 poly stroker.http://www.moparmusclemagazine.com/h...wer/index.html

    Red face Thx 7!

    Just wondering why they were made for a 318 if they were going to over fuel it?

    I imagine going with one 4 barrel would be the proper thing to do but I sure like that dual quad look!

    Hey. We tried lots of things over the years. Some of them were pretty wild.
    But other than for period correctness or attempting to look cool (erroneously),
    nobody should be doing this anymore either....

    I think you would need to have a bit of engine work done to a 318 ie heads opened up, cam, headers, etc too allow that much fuel to get through without bogging down, or maybe 2 small cfm carbs? You can over fuel a stock engine with just one big quad, so by my reckoning two would be more likely to give ya grief.

    I know even single quad manifolds are quite hard to find for poly's (here in New Zealand anyway) A friend of mine has one on his 66 Fury 111 and he got offered a complete rebuilt 318 LA motor swap just for his manifold.

    The pic I posted is the first time I have ever seen it done on a poly, I dont know the specs or exactly how it was done, there may be ways of jetting down the carbs etc, but anything is possible, with the right $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
