Re: [T3] '63 Squareback trivia

<x-charset iso-8859-1>The lack of warm-up equipment also makes for interesting problems when you
install a later engine into an early car.  On the early engines the cylinder
head tin around the spark plugs is narrower since there are no warm air
'tubes' running above and beside the valve covers.  If you go to install an
engine with the later, wider tin it WILL NOT FIT into the engine cavity
without modifying either the engine tin or the body of your car!

63 Notch, 65 single carb engine
