Pretty cool Marv! Very interesting!
Doggone it, Jay even talks in liters instead of cubic inches nor does he mention bore and stroke of that engine which we could understand.
I also wish he would've mentioned the make of the engine in the Christie drive unit.
Thanks for posting!

Christie was also a racer and some of the cars he built and drove were wild!!!!!!!!!

I understand that this engine block was repaired using the Locknstitch technique. My block is currently being repaired by them, I hope to pick it up on the way home from Hershey.

Thanks Marv, that was great. I took a trip to New Jersey to look at a used fire engine for our department. Turns out it is the oldest still operating volunteer department in the U.S. They were in operation when washington crossed the Deleware. They had an 187? Horse drawn steam pump. Those boys out east have whole different meaning to old.
