Summit has them... hold your breath!

Come on Steve the darkside is calling for you. Them 12 volts sure do spin a lot faster when cranking the engine. Instrument lights are a little brighter to. I mine even donate any darkside extra parts I have.

If I switch to an alternator... I'm thinkin that then takes me to 12 V.. which then means switching everything over to 12...
I am still trying to stay stock. Hopping the engine is just my teenage years calling NOT THE DARKSIDE.... Luke... RESIST.
Electric system of 12 volts does not darkside make.

I always have trouble copying pictures into a reply but there are a few good pictures in my gallery of my 52 flathead, 4" crank and dual Strombergs with the original generator converted to 12 volts. Have a look. I have got stalled working on it and need a boost or a boot.

Good luck

The key to gaining clearance for a gen is to stay away from "Super Dual" manifolds. They position the carbs more evenly over the intake ports, at the expense of clearing the gen. But, the 4-bbl is still a better option.

Thanks for posting the picture. I was going more for the looks than performance.

That engine is COOL...
I was talking to my engine guy and he thinks we should go with 3 2's. He will set the linkage up to run on the middle one, until you goose it for higher RPM's. I too am looking at looks, as opposed to performance. I'm NOT gonna be racing this thing... and at the local cruise in, you just sit there with the hood open.... The 3 2's will work (or so I've learned in my research) with an offset bracket for the generator.

What type of headers do you have on there?

They are Sanderson center dump headers with a ceramic like coating, they look good but were a pain to put on. I had to replace the oil dipstick with a Lokar model and it had to be modified to work. I like the 3 carb set up as well but I don't like the alternator adaption even though it would work better.
