    I would like to know as well. Are they OK with the gravity feed?

    I threw this one together for the Rattletrap eighth mile beach sprints at Crowdy head in Australia. Basically a stocker chassis and running gear, single Stromberg 48at the moment. The body is a sneaky glass one until I have collected enough steel panels.[​IMG]

    Here's the engine in the roadster in post #27. Just got a Weber32/36 set up for my B engine with the CRAGAR. Considerable difference in the manifold and linkage design and, of course, an increase in price!

    Here is what my engine ended up looking like when I finished it.
    I drove it to a car show and it runs fantastic.
    I bent up some 3/8" round stock and reworked the louvers on the hood for the velocity stocks to come through.

  11. Here is mine. Diamond block, High Compression head, FSI ignition, Balanced crank, 3/4 race cam. No current pics. Since this pic the distributor and wires were changed, and back carb rebuilt. I have rebuild the carbs along with smaller jets. With that it is still too much for it. Hunting for a single downdraft intake. KIMG0213.jpg KIMG0349.jpg
     
  12. Looks great. Are the carbs 97 or 81? I hate to admit it but I was considering running 3 twos for show and blocking off the front and back ones.

    Denis what adapter are you using on that weber for the air cleaner? That's the only complaint I have about the Weber is the air cleaner looks horrible. I do like the small round one you got up on there

  15. Bob,

    That is exactly what I have in mind. Who made it? Who sells it? Are you running all 3 carbs? I already have a "Thomas" head and side plate.

  16. That was Bill Romain from Cobleskill N.Y.
    Bill took me a ride around the half mile dirt track on the Cobleskill fairgrounds when I was about 15 or 16!

    Charlie. Its a Thomas. I purchased it from Snyders model A parts in Ohio. Uncle Max did me up 3 original Stromberg 81's for it. I told him what I was putting them on. He is an ace. He is excellent. They came back just like brand new ones. I am running just the middle one . But it will run on all three. Hope to talk to you again Charlie. Bob......

  19. Bob,
    Are there any problems with hood clearance? If it fits yours I should be OK since mine is a '31.

  24. Yeah they are 97s. I happened into a guy this weekend that has an old single downdraft intake and he's willing to trade me intakes. It won't look as neat with a single carb, but I am excited to see how it changes how it runs and drives. Supposed to swap these in a week, so... Dang I just realized that engine pic was before I rebuilt the back carb and cleaned up the ignition. Hmmm... Guess i'll snap a current one. After a bunch of tuning, and a few miles on it. The red isn't as bright and shiny anymore, carbs seep so it has that going for it. As of now it has a new aluminum pressurized radiator too (wasn't willing to pay up for a recore locally). The plug wires are home terminated but uses the electronic ignition compatible braided cloth wire from Brillman. Here we go. KIMG0457.jpg KIMG0456.jpg
