I recently bought a triple carb setup with 3 two barrel Rochesters from the states and had all sorts of trouble with it flooding. Checked float levels, added a fuel pressure limiter etc. then found two of the floats were full of fuel.

Quick trip to the carby shop, sorry can't supply any new parts.

But try this, three floats from a Toyota fit straight in, works like a dream now.

Hey Carps can you do something about the price though $30 each which is a discounted price?

Well they do look like the ducks nuts...and if they work, well that's even better...I'm not surprised a Toyota float fitted..I'm curious how you jagged it...A keen memory by some chance.
Talking about jap copies...I was reading an old Australin Rodder from the early 80s and there was a picture of a Nissan V8. Apparently it was a direct rip off of a 289 Ford. Just slightly less cubes Even the sumps interchanged...and the Holley, well the float bowls swapped right over....now thats funny.

Yeah,

One had dents all over it, probably been dropped at some stage, another a split along the base, could have soldered that but sometimes I'm lazy, and so I thought I might as well replace all three at once.

Now I have to go and get my dizzy (ICE Ignitions) recurved to suit an unblown motor and touch wood all should be well.

It runs on the centre carb with the ends comming in at about 2/3 throttle to all hit WOT together.
The end carbs have new investment cast bases with no idle systems.
I haven't had a good chance to tune things properly yet, still idling a bit rough and a little flat spot, due to the dizzy I think.

No problems with these ones on that score, when the carbs flooded they filled right to the brim with fuel.
