Unlike other tri-power systems relying on manifold vacuum to control the progressive opening of the outer two carbs, the L71 setup sensed the vacuum inside the center carburetor’s venturis to determine the need for increased intake charge. The result was excellent low-speed tractability coupled with incredibly smooth (albeit increasingly rapid) acceleration that astounded magazine road testers. Not one to cut corners, Arkus-Duntov was careful to ensure the drivetrain was capable of handling the tri-power engine’s voluminous output, specifying the heavy-duty close-ratio M21 or M22 4-speed manual transmission.
