      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] BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

        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
