Welcome! o.m.Dave !
There's many threads on this site. Some have DYI alternatives, some the original (there's at least 2 for the ford6), others one alternate co.
R U sure U don't mean "cast alu removable" intake (a la the Oz style)? Isn't the Offy iron? That's sold thru Summit'n others (ck our "4 sale" forum. I've seen um there too).

There is one for sale on ebay, and it appears to be aluminum. Is there an easy way to search old posts by topic? Obviously I'm new here.

It's an aluminum plate that mounts over the log. I would recommend VintageInlines. This way you are sure to get all the mounting hardware and the linkages.

You didn't mention if you have a 'small block' or 'big block' six. For the integral intake 144/170/200/250, there are basically two different versions of the Offenhauser 3X1 aluminum adapter. The two Offy' versions fit (@ 60-67 vs @ 68-82) all small block six heads which are interchangeable between all the small blocks 144 to 250 cid but have different shape of the integral intake 'log'

Edelbrock also mfg'd a tri-power adapter for the early intake version.


If you search on offy or offenhauser you can find many postings on building and tuning this modification.

here's a post/thread on the basics.

Sorry I didn't mention the engine size. I posted this in the small six section and assumed that would cover it. I am talking about a 200.

That covers it. As mentioned earlier though, there are different castings of the head. You'll need a different setup based upon what head you have. In 1969, the log got bigger and wider, so you would need the Offy manifold designed to fit the smaller diameter log. I would recommend calling Matt at VintageInlines and have your head casting number handy. This way you get the part that fits the first time. :beer:

Matt (at Vintage Inlines dot com)is one of the carriers for the ford6 performance Handbook. U may wanna get 1 of those to get up to speed on these i6 motors.
(U got 1 of the 6 models, Falcon or Thriftpower by name, manufactured over 36 yrs, bridgin into the EFIs thru the '96 final yr).
:nod:
It shows the tripower set up w/linkage/carbs/throttle.
What carbs will you use?

OK...I'm not much of a typist, so I try to keep stuff short. The '56 is project #3 on my list of stuff to do. It needs pretty much everything, but is surprisingly rust-free. I would just like to get it on the road and eventually make it my daily driver. Don't have the money or ambition to restore it to stock. The tri-power just sounds like something cool to try, along with headers. Don't have any plans to go crazy building this little engine. Just want it to look and sound good. Thanks for your interest. BTW, what carbs do guys usually run on this setup? I have two of the stock carbs...They worth re-using?

BTW, this is the first time I've ever messed with a Ford six. My other two projects have BBC's in them. And, I have managed to end up with two 200's - One is a '66 and the other is a '78. Just from eyeballing it, I think the '78 has a large log manifold. Can anyone confirm or refute that? Thanks again.

:beer: congrats, yes if the 1978 still has the stock head on it then yes it's the large log look for a D8 prefix on the log. This would use an Offy 3 X 1V manifold number 5970, (see below link). Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

Wondering if it might be possible to rig on of these up with a cable throttle, as I have a fox-body?

Yes you can. I changed my mechanical linkage pedal to a cable throttle pedal on my 63 Falcon. The outer carbs are still activated via the rods off of the center carb.
