    Top Alcohol standout Dale Hall used Barnes sprint car heads very successfully on his dragster.

    They were manufactured for sprint car but did not come off the corners as strong as the normal Chevrolet designed cylinder head a sprint engine builder told me. He said that he would like to try them at Bonneville where you could keep your foot-in the throttle for 5 miles..

    It's been a while since there was any activity here, how about some Offenhauser history?

    After 44 pages and many threads on the Ford flathead conversions as well as others, I would have thought there would have been a few on the GMC/Chevrolet stove bolt 12 ports. For Chevrolet it would be the Wayne but the GMC there was the Wayne, Horning, Howard, Algon, and Skinner. The Horning was bought out to become the Fisher and the Howard became the Arias.
    I’ll start with a photo of the Skinner which belonged to Joe Fontana and ran in our roadster from 1997 to 2004. We used a mixture of 75-25 nitromethane and methanol. Many ran on gasoline very successfully as well as nitro. E8C61310-9B61-4310-9863-81970F2A2FE8.jpeg

    Im with Bob. Definitely old marine engine. There's a vintage marine engine site that you might post pics on to get it identified. Oldmarineengine.com I think it is.

    @The37Kid and @studebakerjoe both nailed it, the tell is the marine drive unit behind it.
    It is a Scripps 6 cylinder from 1922.
