    Great pieces. Did you buy them from Don Orosco? I know that Don reproduces twin plug flathead heads, aluminum and magnesium oil pans and Eddy Meyer intakes and heads........Whatever, great score!

    whats up with the carbs? it looks like they are missing the "bases"? or is this some kind of fuel injection?
