That doesn't look right...……….

A slant is

EIEIEIIEIEIE

Looks like you've have a carb on an I, then a carb on an E, then E , then I.


And you're missing 2 carbs.

Sorry, I'd assumed Ed was kidding me some. Presently "re-membering" said definition. :lol:

Yes, per this thread, Cassi has a Buick str8 impersonating a slant. I wanted the space to play intake and exhaust games a la Ma Chrysler on this roadster (as well as simply being addicted to unique, one off toys), so added 28* to the engine mounts.

One of the fun parts so far was cobbling up the pb904 adapter kit. 8)
But I forgot to take pictures of the bell housing aspect of that part, so will have to add'em later, when I dismantle for paint & reassembly.

Here's the Flick'r set link for the project.

I counted 12 ports, so assumed slant 6.

Wasn't thinking siamesed intake ports.

Yeah, and we think a slant's intake path's convoluted. :lol:

Not that adding 28* helps the problem any.
Guess I'm just a glutton for punishment, eh? :roll:

I finally got around to noticing what appear to be 3/8" extensions used as the firewall end of the linkage 8)
Are they of the wobble variety to allow for flex? :wink:

Nah, there's enough wobble in the regular ones for the application. They're more for ease of disassembly & modification when I fiddle with things. Came up with the idea on my cars back when. I'm pretty lazy at heart. :roll:

I'd wanted to go with 1/4" drive ones for Cassi, but only had spare 3/8" to sacrifice to the cause.
