Jim Taylor is well on his way to completing the mechanical restoration of a correct 1965 Tri-Power unit. In Part I, he tore down and inspected the carbs and identified and cleaned the manifold. Part II covered throttle flange and airhorn issues, with in-depth repairs of the throttle shaft assembly and bowl cover. This installment at Phillipsburg, New Jersey-based Jim Taylor Engine Service will involve painting the individual carb components and choosing the correct gaskets needed for the job before starting the final assembly. After the 1965 manifold's mineral spirit bath in Part I, it was coated with one layer of Martin Senour's #7220 self etching primer. Once the primer was allowed to dry, Plasti-Kote's Pontiac Blue #208 went on as a top coat, and then the 5/16-in. studs were installed in preparation for the three 2-barrels. See the photos and captions for the rest of the details.
