    Pretty cool[8D] Wonder how it runs, and how much power gain it gives...?

        Looks like two Volkswagens died to become carburetor donors for this Hawk, LOL.

        Probably a pretty good choice of carb, actually.

          Thats what hot roding was when I grew up. We didn't have the dollars or aftermarket. Vary nice, and vary unique.

            That's my wife talking to Kevin Phillips(recently back from Iraq) and the guy in the blue hat is me. The 56 Golden we are standing behind also belongs to Rick.
            Gary's pictures of the engine turned out better than mine. The carbs are Volkswagen and Rick said that he had to drill out the jets to get the engine to run right. I tried to get a picture of the throttle linkage, but it didn't turn out. He already has ideas for redesigning the headers.

              Looks like that manifold is water injected/heated/cooled?, maybe it's a Hydrogen Hybrid powered Flight Hawk! [^]

                It looks to be a water cooled intake manifold. There is a hose that enters through the front, and appears to exit out the back, with what is probably a coil of some sort inside. LOL, what percolation problems? [)]

                  What Rick has done is heat the manifold just like Edmunds did on the old dual intake I have.

                  The pipes at each end are for water to pass through. (Yeah, I know it's not a very clear view.)
                  I didn't ask him about drive-ability problems, but he didn't mention any. I do know that his grandson said that his cars are drivers and he owns nothing but Studebakers. I doubt he would keep a set-up that didn't work on his car.
