Re: The new Burtz Mosel A engine

Curious what the future plans are for this engine. I’ve followed moderately. Is it going to be a limited run deal only? I believe Todd is still working a new original block as well, is that correct?...

Re: Broken Venturi

Re: Crankshaft pulley - cast iron, steel or aluminum

Re: Confusing Manifold

I have one sitting in the garage...it's for a RHD and from my understanding the post is pressed in. Unfortunately the post, bell crank and linkage are very hard to come by. (I still need them!)

Re: Question for owners of Electronic Ignitions & Centrifugal Advance Distributors
