    Cool. Your engine was probably airplane then because of the NDIX carb? and tin. These look different.

    Yeah, I think someone replaced that head and carb as well.  Sounds like it may have come with a 36NDIX and it a two plug head in that side and a 32NDIX card.  I would also think the air cleaner would be like the completed one on the 356 registry and not the mesh type like the 356’s had.

    Driving a rebuilt restored engine is one thing, but flying with one, I think I may pass. 🙂

    Build into a dual plug car engine?

    That is what I was trying to figure out if I could do?  Lots of things to check out first.  If the case is good or needs or can be cut.  How complete and functional the dry sump assembly is.  If the case is just as deep as a 356 case.  Which distributors could work.  Will the crank accept a stock flywheel.  Which tin and fuel pump can work.  If a stock pulley can be mounted and a stock 90mm generator.   I am missing the dual plug heads, maybe I can have some stock modified to fit??????  How much would that be$$$$$.   It is an 82.5×74, it has all of the pistons, cylinders, crank, and rods.  I just need to see if they are good enough to reuse.  Need to find out what grind the cam is, and if the push rods are stock.  Finally if it would be worth dumping $$$$s into it.   356 stuff is overly expensive, and I already have a few money pits.
