Thanks for the insight. Hopefully we'll turn up more engine pictures as we go along and we'll get a better idea of how much that tunnel ram got used in '69. Do you know anybody that owns one of them?

Yes, I do!!  In fact, it will be on display this weekend up at the big Corvette/Musclecar show in Chicago.  There are a pair of sand-cast Dominators sitting on top of it!!!  Rumor has it that Kaplan may be there too.

Terrific! Would you please post some pics of the manifold and carbs in this thread when the show is over?

My brother is slightly mistaken as to the type of Dominators on my Kaplan tunnel ram..... Mine are not sand cast, but die cast..  Holley list #6214..... The sand cast one are SUPER rare, basically hand-made, very porous, and actually don't work very well due to these inconsistencies.... I believe the two Boss cars that do run the twin Dominators also use the later produced die-cast 6214's....... I talked with one of the Ford gurus who was very instrumental in getting one of them running, he told me that the 6214's were the ONLY way to go.... I sure hope displaying my induction setup jars somebodies memory on a Kaplan low-deck block..... that's all I need... ::)

Where does Holley put the list numbers on a Dominator carb since they don't have a choke tower on them?

List #'s on mine are stamped on the "floor" of the main body just inside of the air cleaner retaining lip...  I just took a really good pic with my phone, but I'm not having any luck with technology right now.... will post when my brain functions better.. :)

Do the sand cast carbs have thicker base plates where the studs go through than the cast versions?

You can send the pic to me at jon.mello "at" verizon.net and I can post it for you if that makes things any easier.

Here's a current auction on eBay for some 6214 carbs, with some good detail images of where the list# is located.

Thanks, Chad.

I don't know why I didn't think to look on ebay...

Tunnel Port 302 engine in one of the '68 Shelby Trans-Am Mustangs.



Here's what the official production (which never happened) Tunnel Port 302 engine was going to look like.

This is the Smokey Unick car but it has a mini plenum on it instead of the dual dominators. You can see the taped over holes in the air box for the two carb studs.

Didn't Smokey paint his engines gold?

Here's another '68 Shelby tunnel port 302. Very similar shot to what I posted above.
Notice the location of the hood pins in the previous photo compared to this shot.
