    I'm fiddling with a Demon 98 carb on my Model A banger.
    Does the Demon 98 side bowl gaskets interchange with Holley gaskets?
    If so, which Holley carb gasket?

    Thanks in advance

    My quickest pass of the day. 10.146 @ 67.17 mph.
    Sorry, I was too busy to take pictures.


     
  20. Outstanding! Thanks for taking us on the ride!! No purer sound than a flathead 4 with a healthy cam - just the way the Good Lord intended.

    The '27 in the left lane was a "B" motor also with a little help (turbo). Mancias?

    I was looking for CDO in the pits but never found him.

  24. Thanks for the ride CDO, I had planned on running my car. Ordered a new crank in February Got a refund of my deposit last week along with apologies but that don't make the car run!

    What Is that cam you have in your engine? Like the sound!

    Looking for shop that can straighten my old crank It mags good now but might not after straightening. Could be ground 020 to centers and be straight and clean but who grinds to centers anymore? #4 seems to be off and I think it is in the web, sound familiar? We put it on V blocks and it showed .008 off at center main so put it on the press and bent it back to .0015 - but checked next AM and it was out .0035 at center. So thats when I put it between centers

    Thanks.




    Were you trying to buy a Scat crank? Was it something other then standard stroke?


    The cam is a Brierley M-28 T.
    I'm really happy with the cam!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks Jim.
