    The ol Akron-Hed got a little more complete today. The new cast aluminum intake manifold was delivered and lines up perfectly! Now to do the machine work and get er all bolted together:D

  10. Looking as fantastic as ever, Kevin!!!

    Now, would it be cool to have an intake/adapter to mate one of those new Frenzel superchargers to an early 4 (A/T, Chevrolet, AND/OR Dodge Fast Four)... :D

    I received and installed the needle and seat from Mike’s Carburetor in my stromberg 81. It’s been a full day and so far, so good. No signs of leaking and the coupe starts with just a bump of the starter even after sitting for a coupe of hours (i.e. no flooding situation). I haven’t installed the other new parts yet. I want to ensure I know specifically what the fix action was/is. I’ll give this some time before I declare victory.

    Late to this month's party (or early to October's meet?), but I finally installed my chrome front timing cover from @Hitchhiker. Lots of pieces from great friends on this engine. IMG_8579.jpg
