I really like Tri-Power sixes and encourage more enthusiasts, but:

... sadly looks more like a conversation piece than reasonably rebuildable . Fits early logs, missing most linkage, carbs look poor at best and all fasteners are crusty.

I thought someone might be interested in the glass bowls. Although $500 would be a lot just for them.
Guess one could buy it, keep the bowls, then sell the rest to recoup a portion of the cost.

... always good for forum to keep up with Craigs List, Epay etc for Ford six related items. Often sellers are totally clueless to the value which can often be a good thing or priced for no-deal.

I check Local CL posting daily here in Hudson Valley NY : - A 144 with no head and air cooled automatic .- "good for parts"- ..( .. surprised if he can give away a 144 these days'... )

https://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/pts ... 38204.html

... but heres a seat of headers posted locally:

I wouldn't want someone to get frustrated starting a tri-power project, they have to wait for hours of fun tuning three carbs to work together.
