Default Re: Ford ran 2/3 cars at the 1035 Indy 500?

In John Lawson's book "Flathead facts" He modified a stock 239 ci engine with every bolt on intake and carburetor available. Every cylinder head, and every ignition system. and still couldn't produce 100 HP. How ever the addition of a mild Max #1 cam did the trick. And the 221 is abit smaller.
Like I said, be nice to know what was in those engines.?????
