It's actually a pretty dumb setup, but it does work very nicely to keep the carburetor temps down and to stop percolation. Yes, it looks cool too.

I have the two part VMS pan, but it's actually quicker (and easier with the carb on the bench) to remove the whole carb with the setup I've got: the vac line for the brakes and the pcv lines are straight to fittings on the manifold, the throttle linkage has spring loaded socket/ball fittings, pop them, the springs, the fuel lines, 4 mount nuts and off she comes...also have a huge stash of base gaskets...another handy item are knurled four corner idle mister screws that you can turn by hand from above, it's a bit of a challenge to track turns but they work nice.

Nice. I don't believe I've ever seen that "quick-a-disconnect" before for the entire carburetor. Most guys, when they're spec'ing out their car, tend to look at a Turkey Pan and say "Oooh, that's kind of cool, I think I'll throw that in." Not realizing that the car runs differently depending on whether it's on or off. And if you don't have a removable TP, then you have to "guess and check" your settings, which is a ridiculous PITA. Bob's work of art is very straightforward and simple, you just unlatch the four Terry Body Springs, and then lift the upper half of the TP right over the carb. It's really no different than just removing the air cleaner assembly. I've had them safety wired for the last ten years or so, but it's really not necessary.

The thing that makes pulling the carb really easy is tha there are no auxiliary vac hoses attached; they stay with the manifold...

So undo the springs and it's off!?! It doesn't get much handier than that!
