:) Of course, no one has ever been able to explain why a 289/2bbl in a Hawk is rated at 210 HP with standard dual exhaust, but is still rated 210 HP in a base 289 Lark with 2bbl and single pipe...[:0];) :DBP

I believe the HP ratings then were GROSS HP. At the flywheel. No exhaust system, no accessories.

To compare with today's HP ratings, multiply by about .70-.75
