Holley 3 Barrel

Anyone know anything about a Holley 3 barrel 3916? Are they a good carb?

They were out there. Didn't catch on. Holley doesn't even list them on their numerical carb list.

Re: Holley 3 Barrel

Yeah, didn't last long.

They were pretty much yerbasic Holley 4-bbl with one giant rear barrel instead of 2 smaller ones.

There was nothing "wrong" with them, or particularly "great" either. As long as you can get a rebuild kit for it, its' OK. If you can't, don't bother. Check that FIRST before parting with your cash.

The simplest explanation that fits all the facts is probably the right one.

Re: Holley 3 Barrel

Carter tried it with a 3-barrel AFB, too.

Expect a 3-barrel to not fit on most dual-plane intakes.
