Update "AoK - New Dual Carb intake for the USA flathead 6"

Howdy Folks -

Well while we are awaiting the first lot of intakes to be cast George has been busy working on various linkage combinations.

Here is the 1st look close up of the finished prototype AoK dual carb intake for 23 1/2" USA flathead mopars. This one has - prototype linkage being developed for trucks or 1933-1938 Cars

Notice the left carb linkage bar has been cut short, and is not hooked to the left carb. That is strictly for prototype purposes It shows how

the serial number and linkage block provides the spot for stock linkage components to be mounted and then integrated with the new AoK linkages.

You will notice for this version we are using the outside "wings" to linkeage mounts on the outside. For newer cars where we want the linkage

rail mounted on the inside the inside "wings" will be used and the outside block will just be the serial number plate.

Of course the final linkage for older cars and trucks, will have a longer linkage bar and the same connection to the carb as you will

see on the right carb. Of course on the carbs you will see a mounting spot for cars and for trucks. They actually connect in two different spots.

I can tell you George has the linkage working perfectly. You would just use your stock brackets for trucks and older car applications and the AoK linkage will just integrate with it to give you the desired upgrade from the single to dual carbs. Oh yes, and hot debate on the name.. Our original intent

was to have the writing read from the passenger side although you may notice it was reversed to be read from the other side.

Oh and the cat is out of the bag, as the prototype wasn't supposed to have the name on it yet.. lol.. so lets say George was a little surprised

as he didn't authorize his name on it.. That one I own although he smirked and lets just say he appreciates the tribute!

so the "AoK George Asche Jr Ltd Ed" intake development is pretty much complete.

It is great to see the AoK project finally approaching the finish line Tim. What a beautiful piece of eye candy and a fitting tribute to George Asche Jr.   I think it is fascinating to see the progress of the project.  I imagine he cut the linkage bar short in the prototype just so he could test the action of the linkage pieces.  Not that is matters I was just curious. That linkage looks amazing. I still have a spare mounting bracket pieces from my old girl so I am going to mail that to George. Seeing these pictures I just have to have a set of that linkage as well.  Mine may only be a wall hanger at this point but I love the extra jewelry options! I can hardly wait to get them up in my man cave.

wow wow wow. this just keeps getting better and better. Now that I can see it close up, all I can say is wow wow wow.

 

I am not asking my bride.  Make my order 2 of them.  I would like 1 with the lowest serial number you can give me, 2 carbs, and linkage on the inside for the 1950 Plymouth. For the second one I just want the intake and the linkage, but would like it on the outside like the one you have on your post.

 

I have a truck intake, so I will sent it to you with the carb on it and maybe you can move whatever it is that doesn't

come with your linkage and use mine.   I know you mentioned giving me credit for the carb.  I am hoping the intake core is

worth enough to cover the additional work cleaning up and moving over the truck pieces.

 

OldasDirt has me thinking and I think I need a wall hanger for my man cave which doubles as my office and bar and the truck one is definitely the one to do that..

 

I have a pair of truck carbs and I will just get the bride to paint them and make them look pretty for display.  She powder coated

some carb pieces for me already and while maybe not practical they look cool.

 

Thanks again.

Paul

Wow, that sure is pretty ! what an amazing piece of engineering. I now see

how your inboard and outboard tabs work. That in itself makes it superior to any of the others I have seen. To also have the truck and 1930s car tab incorporated is

clearly a display of pure genius engineering ! Well done !

Please add me to the list. I just have to have one and will drop you a pm on the linkage. Im glad you and George decided to skip the water jacket on the initial

build. For me by the time the water is warm enough the engine has warmed up and doesn't need it. I think that is why Chrysler used the exhaust heat and not the engine water.

I know Edmunds went the water route. He didn't do an integrated exhaust and therefore

used water heat. Ive used an Edmunds year round. With and without the water jacket

used. Right down to -25 degrees and in the end, ill pass on the water jacket.

It wouldn't have been a deal breaker for me if you had integrated a water jacket although I am glad its not there. The look is just so much better without it.

Thanks again for all the work you guys are doing for the hobby!
