Re: 2BBL carb FC-170

Thanks Craig. I took some rough measurements and it will definitely be close. The other problem is rigging up the carb linkage. It operates fore/aft, not side to side like the 1BBL. For sure I'd have to make an air filter adapter and mount it remotely. I'd like to have an original FC-170 oil bath, but I've never seen one for sale.
I'd love to drive over and see your new shop some day. You're only about two hours from me.
