I just have to say the knowledge that the "Barners" have is second to none!

All we need to do is ask for information, about ??? and an answer will appear.

Thank you to all for sharing your knowledge, it's what makes this hobby the greatest.

It also could be a Cyclone for the flathead Ford 6. We used to run against one in a jalopy, ran good too. In those days 4 and 6cyl. jalopy engines could run more than 1 carb, etc. Us 4-bangars could even run OHV heads, not many did and the one time I did not many could stay with it, until I broke a main cap. I ran four 81's!

Not sure I have a pic running the 4, and I'm not smart enough to post here anyway, on FB yes, here no. I ran 4 mostly on alcohol/nitro to get more reserve in the bowls. Fuel takes twice as much on alky, and more on nitro, and the needle and seat cannot pass enough to keep the fuel level where it belongs, destroys pistons and such minor things.

I saw somewhere a fellow was building an A engine and he put a new Cyclone head on. I recall he got it from H and H but I don’t see it in the online catalog
