\"Pushrod Spyder Engine\"

Postby Kuzu356 » Sat Jan 24, 2004 5:41 pm

I have been working on this project on and off since 3 years
I am almost nearing to have a running prototype engine ready ....And also building
a website for this project named ..\"pushrodspyderengine.com\"...will include many details and pictures for your enjoyment.I hope with this very special concept
I have added a great touch to our beloved 356 push rod engine by Installing the Original 4 Cam Shroud and twin Fans with the original Generator stand .My background
being a Tool&Die maker really helped me to manage this very challenging project.
I hope you Enjoy the pictures ..

Nice work! Makes for a far better look for the 356 engine....but where does one find the original shroud and generator parts these days?
