Hi to all,
I need some advice on a twin carby set up for a 173 red six. Have the opportunity to purchase a new orginal GMH manifold,gaskets and exhaust pipes.(He`s after about $300) I want to run strombergs, do i require a couple of ones to suit a 149 or 161 ?? Can any one help me with this problem. Also,what would be a fair price for the manifold and to buy a couple of carbies for this project?
Another thing has anyone got some idea`s on what`s good to use for rust prevention till i can afford to resto on the old girl.( in usual places bottoms of doors,tailgate etc)
Sorry, forgot to mention that the 186 was replaced by a 173 before i got it also runs a powerglide.
Keep the rev`s up, Nev.

Nev $300 sounds a bit exxy to me. There's a set of exhaust manifolds on evilbay at the moment for $76, item # 350079059224. A bare intake manifold can be had for $50-$100. I got mine with carbs for $120!
