CPotD #105 (Is it Motor Monday Already?)

It’s a new week and I’m back to posting CPotDs. Yesterday provided me with ample opportunities to shoot photos that are CPotD worthy. Especially noteworthy are subjects for Wacky Wednesday, but you’ll have to wait a couple days.

Today’s subject, however, resides in the engine bay of this VERY nice LM that’s set up for track use. A rollbar, racing harnesses, no backseat, and nice wide tires, paired with this potent powerplant, all point to this car’s purpose – go fast or go home! With somewhat simplified linkage and fuel plumbing, this setup is a tempting one for me to use with my newly received 140 HP heads, but the elevated carburetor and long intake runners make for very rough running on cold days - not satisfactory for a daily-driver.
