PostSubject: Dual Quad (GC) 350: Progressive or Parallel    Sun Apr 22, 2018 6:44 pm

Hello my friends at CCC,

I have just rebuilt a Golder Commando 350, Original, with the matching stock intake and dual Carter AFB carbs.

I don’t recall if the factory setup was parallel or progressive for the eight barrels. In know that in the 1950s (unlike in the 1960s), there was no strict ‘rule’ to make most set-ups progressive. Some dual quads were set in parallel and some progressive.

Anyone know the factory set-up for the ‘58 Fury?
If it was progressive, which carb was the primary?

I currently have the dual quads set-up in parallel. This is great for WOT, once the rpm rises over 2,500 - but below that it bogs a little. I figure that it might just need some metering adjustment to tune it in - i’ll Let you know. In the meantime, and am interested to hear if anyone knows the factory set-up.....

The original setup is progressive. She bogs with the parallel setup at low rpm because she's flooding... Assuming the carbs have the original size jets.

If you don't have the original progressive linkage, A&A Transmission at makes a reproduction that is virtually identical to the originals.

Good Luck! Smile
