Really nice!

How much did you have to take off the pistons? Any pictures of it?

Beautiful!
I was going to suggest adding a small cam until I noticed you had the engine together already. I had the same set up(not those carbs though) and an E100 really brought the engine to life. Smile

It's a sickness. Smile I had to pull one down to install in this motor. I'm having my carpenter make a nice shelf for them in the new garage. Wink

Ya, I normally keep one on the shelf as a back up. I considered running it on this motor but I've decided to run a rebuilt oe pump instead.

Good job! That motor looks and sounds sweet. I've always loved the look of those speedwell carburetor kits.
