Re: Speedway Stromberg 97 Quality?

Kube, look no further than the guy that buys the stuff. My friend Marvin always told me, "It only cost a little bit more to go first class".

Re: new (to me) flathead! help?

It has vacuum ports on the intake between #5&6 and #7&8 intake ports like a 39 merc. What is the serial # on the transmission? That could be a merc motor out of a truck.
