Default Tripower Carb Restorers

I will be sending out my carbs from my Tripower car soon.
Who are the recommended restorers and do any of them actually tune
them on a running engine?
Tuning 3 carbs I have never done.
Thanks
Dave

Dave,

I also second a nomination for Eric Jackson of VintageMusclecarParts. He restored all three of the carburetors for my L71 this past April and I couldn't be happier. He sent a video to me via my cell phone of all three of my carburetors on top of a running engine (which he uses for tests). It was very cool. He will set them up so all you really have to do is put them back on top of your intake manifold and hook up the fuel lines and the accelerator linkage. Good Luck with your choice.

C.J.

I second Phil @ Custom Rebuilt Carb in NJ. I have bought 3 set of dated coded ‘67 Tri-Powers from him plus a dated coded
‘72 LT-1 carb from him. All have performed flawlessly.

Eric Jackson is the guy and yes he bolts the carbs on a running engine
and tunes them and sends you a video of your carbs.
About $1000 with returned shipping if your carbs are complete
and functional and not missing or have broken parts.
Thanks
Dave

No he didnít do them in a week.
Its a 6 week turn around.
I believe he bolts them to a 435hp spec motor.
Guys here rave about him.........Just where mine are going

I have never had anything done by him but have heard good things about Eric. Not sure about running them on a 435hp spec motor. He restores lots of other carbs besides 435hp carbs. If he had a spec motor for each different carb that he restores that would be a really big shop.
