Minnesota Newsletter? I missed the start of this thread, but I think I know
which engine you are talking about. It was Tom Hazen's 1275. Quite modified.
Of interest,it also has a crossflow head I've never seen anywhere else. It
has what is, in effect, an integral intake manifold for a Weber DCOE.
What was the question? I'll ask him at breakfast Saturday.

Subject: Postmortem on 1275
When I posted the note about the Minnesota newsletter with the story about
the engine that failed within 1500 miles, I should have mentioned that I
have no knowledge of the details of the story. I just was reading
newsletters from around the Nation that I keep book marked in my FAVORITES
list. Someone (Paul?) questioned if the engine was a 1275 or a 1098. I
don't know the answer to that. Just what was written in the story. I don't
know the people either. Like Paul Harvey says: It would be nice to know
"The Rest of the Story!"
