  2. did a almquist kit on a GMC 228 welded the cast iron risers on and blocked the original even come with linkage must have been under $10 in 1961 if I could afford it
    good old buz box and cast iron must have sed 6011 for rod and would use 180 amps to cut the cast iron
    did a lot of split manifold too then, but rember a lot of the cars that were worked on were 9 years old or less so it would weld fiarly easily

    This is not my work but it sure has caught me eye. I thought I'd share it. Hopefully some HAMBER will give me a tip about who makes this great unit. I'm into Stovebolts in a big way.

    Hey Norm' did you maybe post a different pic than you intended? Sure looks like a Fenton:)
    OoltewahSpeedShop, how well do the engines run as daily drivers with no water or gas heat to the custom intake manifold? I live in Alaska and freezing up is already a concern! Nice work btw! -freezerburn
     
  6. I built one for a customer. CNC plasma cut a flange, had 2 dummy carbs and one center working one, with insane zoomies. It was on one of "those" type cars, so, not sure I should post pics :rolleyes:

    my first car was a 54 Chev, and I cut out the square center section of the intake, which was just large enough for the butterflies of a small 54ish? Buick 4 bbl to fit in.. then brazed on a mounting plate and cobbled up some linkage.. it was crude, but this was in 10th grade metal shop class in 1962

    Maybe these are what you are looking for. The air cleaner is not mine but in my mind it is the nicest I have seen.

    I cut up a stovebolt intake and made a pc. to blend it to a Rochester 2GC as a machining exercise but never bothered welding it together or testing it as I would no longer be able to run my air cleaner that Norm likes so much. That one was to determine speed, feed, and depth of cut possible with several different 1/16" carbide endmills.

    I've designed a few intakes for my fellow Inliners Club members and have built a few.
