    These came up on the VFT site (one of my favorites) today. Since I`m a big fan of Cut Away`s these really caught my eye.:thumbsup: Cut away AMAL carb book ends.:yikes:

    Cool book ends, gives me an idea of what I could do with some old carbs I have sitting in garage, a bit larger than the Amal's!

    Not sure if I should hit them with glass beads or leave them as "barn find" condition, maybe a quick dusting off of loose stuff and a shot with satin clear coat, Believe they were off some big gas engine trucks back before diesels took over the truck engine market.

    I wonder if those will leak like they did when they were brand new....

    Yes.:yikes: Even though these are cut away`s with open float bowls and all internals showing they might not leak as bad as new complete Amal carbs did. My old Pursang had to be laid over at a 45 degree angle to dump the excess gas while pushing it in a circle in 2nd gear so when and if it ever cleared out it might start.:thumbsup:
    I`ve always loved Cut Away`s. I had a complete Toyota Corolla chassis working instructional-educational cut away. Interesting but it took up too much space so I sold it.

    I hate to admit it but we have one of these cut away`s at our Yesterdays Air Force Museum right here in ShitBurg (Topeka). I could just stare at this for hours & hours. I mean somebody had to think this up in the first place right?.:yikes: The Prat and Whitney R-4360.:yikes: IHMO the greatest cut away ever.:thumbsup:

    There is a R-4360 cutaway at the Pina Air and Space Museum. Yeah, I could watch it for a while too.

    Looks like "FILL 'ER UP" needs a refill...
    What's your flavor of choice?

    Well I believe you are speaking facts @59Tebo . That was Shackleton blended malt scotch whiskey, but if it was available here in hawaii I would probably have some larceny or 1792.

    They're all tasty! People ask me "Oh, you like scotch?" Bourbon? Gin? Red wine? White wine?....fill in the blank.
    I won't quibble..... I like alcohol.... So many flavors.... so little time.... :shrug:

    Only change I'd make would be a bathroom off the cycle room. Maybe because I'm older.

    Ok, this would be my ultimate man house. All garage / shop downstairs, modern loft style apt upstairs. I’d get Yamadude to come over and set me up with a big old school stereo, big screen TV, maybe an old Norton on display in the living room and not a floral print in sight anywhere in the house! Now that’s living! :smoke:

    This one comes real close. Maybe sprinkle a few Cobra`s here and there and some XS`s but close.
