    Well I didn't know the six pack carbs didn't have accelerator pumps on them but if I can find a set of marine carbs they have them which would help alot plus I run a vertex magneto

      There are six pack carbs that have the accelerator pumps and would work with the mechanical linkage setup. I don't know what the numbers are, but someone on here does. Again takes tuning. If you understand how Holley's work and have patience, I'me sure that could be very streetable.
      I think Direct Connection (Mopar Performance) even sold a set with the accelerator pump end carbs.

        There was an interesting thread about using and modifying cheap corvette tripower carbs for a 440. Search "Tri power carbs on a 440 six barrel"@Sonny
        Sonny used some cheap corvette center carbs with accelerator pumps, converted to side hung bowls for clearance, and used a mechanical linkage.
        Might just work on that bigass weiand.

          There is a local guy around here having good luck running that intake with fuel injected six pack.

            In 1977 I bought a 1970 V code 4spd Dana60 4.10 Road Runner . The 6 pack had been removed and replaced with a CH4B and Carter carb . I found a 6 pack intake and bought the mechanical - non vacuum - end carbs . I think I got them from DC . Engine had 11.5:1 TRW's , .570 solid cam , 906 heads with 2.14" and 1.81" valves , Ported by a racer buddy with advice from Bob Joehnck , Harland Sharp rockers , thorley headers etc . It went to RoadRunner heaven in about 1981 or so , wish I had it back . The long and the short of it is that the mechanical carbs worked great , I had adjustable linkage to enable full 6bbl at initial throttle , or let the rod slide through the secondary carbs levers for peaceful daily driving back and forth to high school .
