I have photos from what is believed to be the engine of an L29. Can anyone look at them and let me know their thoughts? There is a number on the Manifold: 4H110 Thanks so much[/img][img][url=http://img849.imageshack.us/i/mvc023s.jpg/:3w41gxgt][img]http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/8528/mvc023s.jpg[/url:3w41gxgt]

The engine in the picture is an L-29 Cord engine with the later style intake manifold. Someone has modified this manifold to accommodate twin downdraft carburetors. I wonder what kind of performance it gives.

Please note a carb. in the original position as well with linkage from it to the upper two making it have three carbs. One carb gets 12 to 13 MPG. What do you think three will do. To say it is overcarbed, would be a understatement.

Thanks for the input so far. The owner told me he drove the car from San Diego CA to Utah 15 years ago at 70 miles per hour. That must have been some sight to behold.
