If you missed a chance to get an AoK intake, we maybe able to help! - SOLD

Update: To all the kind words we have received over the years and since this post thank you. The AoK intake setup is on its way to Gary Street for those of you wondering if its still for                 sale or who got it.  Oh and yes, it was spoken for pretty much within an hour of it being listed with a few backup homes looking to Adopt the Piece of History!     So you missed out on our last (and most likely final) run of AoK intakes and are kicking yourself. Unlike ot

Nifty at 90 - Happy 90th Birthday to the Chairman of the Board - AoK Racing - George Asche Jr (Born Saturday February 6th 1932)

Sunday February 6 2022 -   Guess who turns 90 today ?    The answer to that question is -  George Asche Jr,  born  February 6th 1932!   Here is an great article that  was published in the local paper earlier this week, celebration   "The Nifty at 90  -  George"     If you want to call George and wish him a Happy Birthday,   his number is  814-354-2621 although around 4pm on his birthday  he likely wont be answering the phone until 7pm. I cant confirm

Floor Shift Concepts for Mopar Column Shift Transmission - Part 2

Hello folks -      Back in 2017  I started a thread on  floor shift concepts.  It kicked off with Paul Flaming   @pflaming  who had made a shifter for a straight 3 speed.   He was planning to work on a version for an overdrive and got a prototype which was a 2 shifter concept.   The other one was Ron Allworth's who  had made one for a buddy.  He had gave consideration to try and make production versions but the demand wasnt there,  a lot of people were really hoping for

Potential New Product - Offset Air Cleaners

*** note:   Hang in there and at the bottom  of this article, you will be asked if you have any interest in a potential new product.   For now over 30 years we have been making AoK  Triple carb intakes  for the  25 1/2"  Canadian  flathead engine,   found in  Chryslers from 1937,  Desoto's from late 37/38,  and  Canadian built  Dodge /Fargo trucks,  Plymouth,  Dodge cars since 1936.  Prior to that George Asche has been making triples from factory intakes from both the America

Merry Christmas & Happy New Years from the AoK boys

Well folks as 2021 starts to wind down we reflect on the 2nd year challenging year us a row under a global pandemic.   With now over 5,412,000 dead world wide,  over 837,000 dead in the USA, over 30,000 dead in Canada,   2% of everyone who gets it dies and   just over 24 million active cases in the world right now, of which just over 11 million of those are in the USA it’s a very challenging and stressful time.   While its easy to get caught up in the effects on our lives from unable t

To Heat my intake or not? Subtitled: Running water from an engine to heat an intake a good idea? NO!

1st we should start about heating intakes, and to make it easy this is primarily about Chrysler/Dodge/Fargo/Desoto/Plymouth intakes on Flathead (L-Head) engines from the 1930s-1950s and I would also refer you to read my article on multiple carbs.   Chrysler Corporation was building cars and trucks to run 12 months a year and under conditions that range wildly in terms of how hot, how cold the climate was as well as different levels above sea level.    This is going To be at a more

Happy 89th Birthday to the Chairman of the Board - AoK Racing - George Asche Jr (Born Saturday February 6th 1932)

I thought for  George's 89th Birthday I would let you folks in on a small sliver of his past.   A story I am sure many of you have heard and one I have heard from both George and his Uncle Harry Hein's, the Legendary Stock car driver of Car #90.  Interesting,  my Dad, Eddy Kingsbury who was born less than a handful of days from George's birthday, had long before ever meeting George, heard about an old Desoto Roadster with a Chrysler 6  beating a Hemi Powered  Drag Car at the Flying Mile.   Yes,

Floor shift concepts for Mopar column shift Transmssions

Howdy folks - Coming from another blog topic, which strayed down a back road, came the idea of  transmissions for Mopar Cars and Trucks that were post 1940 that came with  Column shift and the normally column shift transmission was modified or the linkage was to turn it into a 3 speed floor shift transmission. So this isn't about taking a vehicle that had column shift and putting a transmission for the 1930s or a modern floor shift transmission to make the vehicle floor shift. This is

George update, and AoK Intake updates

Howdy Folks -  I thought I would do an update on a few topics.  1st the most important one being my buddy George Asche Jr.  George who was hospitalized a few months ago continues to  be regaining his health at a rate  I think everyone including he himself find remarkable.  I was down last week and helped him build another engine and a bunch of other thing.   He continues to work through a long list of promised work, from engines and over drives, to intake, carbs and linkage.
