That got to be the best looking 36hp engine installation I've ever seen. But I love all your detail to the car, everything 100% thought through.

Paul, I was looking into it, but my plans changed, and then my plans changed again, Haha. Local, well known 36hp specialist has a engine stand dyno. He was interested, but I was running out of time, and needed to get engine installed for a 4 day road rally. But of course, the event was cancelled. Maybe someday while Iím doing other improvements I can get it in his hands. It would be the best way to tune.

Just spent a good part of my day enjoying this impressive build thread and enjoying your extensive detail. It has been extremely informative. I love everything about the way you have carried out your revisions with great research along the way with a clear and divisive plan as you move forward. The outcome is very inspirational to me. I have a very nice 1955 Oval that I would love to one day build up in the same way you have built yours. Cheers

Wasn't cheap to make and only 5 existing. This is the only one that will be sold. Very Happy

Posting up a few other goodies and accessories for sale. I have another project in the works and could use some extra cash. Cool
