Beautiful Peter!
What is that aircleaner, did you build that? I'd like to do something similar.

Nice Flathead with ARDUN heads on Test Stand - how sweet is this? This one will be used to power a 1934 Ford Hi-Boy Roadster. It is owned by a friend of mine.

Thanks - that's a custom one-off build. It is a stock 1935 air cleaner stretched with all matching ribs on the top mounted on a hand formed dual carb base housing a K&N filter hidden in stock type copper mesh and stock type chicken wire retainer. The base is countersunk down over the carbs for hood clearance. Here are some shots of it coming together.

Beautiful induction setup. Did your friend make his own carb manifolds? These are some of the neatest ones I’ve seen. Who would I contact about acquiring them. Thanks in advance for any assistance possible. John (3ardun2)
