Engine is going to look a little different next week..
I'm putting on a Edelbrock Victor Series aluminum water pump and a Edelbrock Performer 2121 Intake Manifold so it's going to have more of the cast aluminum look..I'll post some pictures when done..

That appears to me to be an I6 to 289 conversion, correct?

I'm wondering what in the image leads Bartl and Smitten to beleive that it once was a inline 6 cyl? Just curious and hoping to learn something new.
