I use 800dp carbs inline ,but 4160 linkage should be the same as 4150. Inline linkage is a lot more simple to me.

I never had that problem,I use side hung bowls on the front & center hung bowls on the back with jet extensions. The carbs almost touch each other, but they do clear. The car 60fts low 1.30s sometimes high 1.20s with no starving.

the linkage has a huge amount of adjustability, I cant see why it wouldnt work. You need the ford specific base plate, to mount the stuff on the manifold, its real easy to set up.

As 460Vega said use the jet extensions in the back bowls. The main reason for mounting the carbs sideways is to make tuning easier as bowl access is not obstructed.

Remember when you are jetting them one # up or down x8 makes a big change!
