1957 Tri Power
« on: May 18, 2010, 02:03:34 PM »
I have a tri power manifold and carbs, part number 1469689. The question I have is this a manifold for a 1957. A friend of mine has told me that tri power was not offered in 57 only 58. Also what is the correct part number for the 4 barrell manifold for a 1957 and a 1958 engine? I have 3 manifolds with the following numbers and I am trying to identify them.  1469262-2. 1465061-1 and 14692631-2. Thanks any help on this would be appreciated.

The first year for a tri power Cadillac was 1958, see the performance manifold numbers below:

1455104 49 331 two barrel
1456741 50-51 331 two barrel
1463414 52-55 331 single quad
1463205 is a 1955 dual quad 331
1464580 is a 1956 dual quad 365
1469263 is a 1957 dual quad 365
1465950 is a 1957 dual quad 365
1469689 is a 1958 Tri-Power 365 8)
1472225 is a 1959 tri power 390
3512080 is a 1960 tri power 390

I do not know what the other numbers are:
1469262-2 ?
1465061-1
14692631-2

what are you going to do with the tri power?

Thanks Ken for the informatioon. I am wondering do you have a number for the 1958 standard intake manifold. Also the tri power set up that I have is for sale. I do not have an air cleaner.

finding parts for these "Incomplete" are difficult at best. Have you found a competent person who would carry or have knowledge of these parts as the brackets and linkages? Does anyone make reproduction of these items or are we left to fend for ourselfs?

On my '55 Eldo with duel quads, nobody is making repro parts for that set-up.

I would guess it's the same deal for the tri power set-up.  I was lucky, had most of
the original parts and had templates (parts borrowed from another car) to have the
rest made.

Some parts are reproduced by Chevy guys... But not all are available. The Chevy 348 used the same parts and this setup is very popular with folks restoring Chevys. Do some homework and you can find who has it. BUT dont think you can get it all.... You cant..
