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.
