Re: I keep thinking "What If"..

You were pretty vague. Does "something happens.." mean the bores need some attention? If yes and there's no scope for an overbore but the pistons are OK, you could just clean up the bores and have the pistons built up by Line2Line. https://www.line2linecoatings.com/ PS, formula for the length of a ...

the intake is a limiting factor, more cubes isn't going add substantial hp, might help off idle thru mid range
This is an older "Made In The USA" Weiand Stealth.there's no divider.
Still,probably not as good as a nice single plane would be.
Maybe a spacer and bigger carb would help ??

I'm hoping that longevity of these ones is an increase ...

I like it that they give that max spring load of the lifter looks like 1400# those lifter would last my type of camshaft forever.
