Has anyone used Autolite 2100 on a 3X2 setup?

........a few companies have done it. It does require some machining of the carbs to get them to fit. and a custom linkage to get them to operate progressively.

The 2100 carb makes a fine setup. I have that setup on my 63 Comet with a 289/302 with solid lifter cam. Pony Carbs makes that setup and I patterned mine using an article about their setup.
I did this in 1998 and it has been performing very well since then.Regular small block linkage works, but I put the fuel log on the passenger side [like Ford] rather than on the driver's side like Pony did. A little machining is required, but nothing hard.

The size you use is dependent on your engine size. No matter, the middle [primary] carb is usually smaller. Foe example, you couls use a 102 for the primary and 108s for the secondaries.
