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

The water pump was driven off the camshaft where the distributor normally resided and there was a cockpit mounted magneto that had a right angle drive and cable coming off the nose of the crank. Harry Miller built some of his cars with the mag in the cockpit for adjusting the timing while under way. The heads were reversed with outlets to the radiator hoses connected via special castings.
My school colors are black and blue, I attended the School of Hard Knocks where I received a Masters Degree in Chronic Mopery.
