Re: Coolant flow diagram

I don't think they are aluminum, I should scratch the paint off to confirm, but they are the "high compression" EAB heads, I think 7:1 instead of 6.8. :rolleyes: the engine casting number is C1BA,...

Re: Merc manifold bore spacing and size

I actually have a Stromberg WW which is the correct base. I'm going to have a close look at it this morning to see if it's complete, it's one of my core carbs I've had for years,

Cheers
