Ah, somebody else who discovered the joy of the Stromberg. They work great eventually, but they sure make you prefer a good old Quadrajet when setting them up.

My son is currently restoring a XKE Jag, V12 with Webers. Like the Strombergs, They're EVIL :bounce:

The song was originally written and performed by Charley Ryan who really owned the 'Hot Rod Lincoln. Here is the backstory;http://en.wikipedia....ki/Charlie_Ryan


My son is 35 and his favorite song when he was very small was the Commander Cody version of Hot Rod Lincoln.
To this day if it is played my wife will say there is Bailey's Song.

That happens to be my favorite version as well! I'll throw it in here too just so that they all have equal billing LOL. This version also has some great eye candy to look at while it's rolling!

Mine was a Triumph Spitfire. I had no money but the only place that sold parts around here was the Jag dealer. Got it all done and sold it to make (part) of the down payment on this place.

My first car was this old '67 Comet with the high performance 289. Fast. We were coming back from the farm that harvest and the song came on and I thought Dad was asleep in the back so I opened it up a bit. About halfway through the song I hear this voice from the back, "Boy, it's a song, not an instruction manual." Slowed right down to the speed limit after that.

I've always been fond of the flatheads and still have two souped up V-8's setting down at my sons place.
I've seen a few V-12's over the years but never owned one.

If you look close at that engine, you'll see that someone made up a very slick distributor conversion for it.
The original distributor was mounted on the front of the engine, down in-between the two water pumps and was driven right off the camshaft.
This engine has the distributor mounted up over the right cylinder head and it is driven by a timing gear belt.
