Which is precisely how the head he "claimed" to own was configured.

Fucked if I know, but I'm still waiting to see how he got two half cut
Webers to work on a fabricated manifold and managed to keep it all in under
the bonnet, and I'm *still* wondering if using two barrels was all he could
get away with why he just didn't use *both* barrels of *one* carb.
> Which tells you what about the camshaft?
That he was the only person on earth who used a conventional camshaft and
got it to work with an 8 port valve sequence.
Boy, that thing must have popped it's guts out. I think that's where he gets
confused about his "bonnet bulge". He may not have put one in intentionally,
but all the back-firing through the carbs took care of his clearance issues
for him :)

Actually one and half webbers are possibly more common than you think, and yes they can be done
without modification of the bonnet, the fire wall however does need a major hole cut in it and will
(or SHOULD) never be allowed on the road again unless its recertified as such.
As far as the cast head, Cast Alloy yes, cast Iron, probably not.

I'd suggest you might want to start reading the "which pomme car did you own
*and* like" thread to see what's being discussed here.

yes, it'll be approximately 1 week into an argument where his bullshit
claims have been shown categorically to be false, and his attempts to
shitft focus meet with similar fate. that's the 'secret signal' that
he's 'going on holiday'. Nice of him to take the sock puppets with him.
He's probably looking in a mirror right now, punching himself in the
head screaming 'I HATE YOU, I HATE YOU'

As dumb as that sounds, it's about the only way the thing would actually
run. I'd imagine the throttle linkage would be a right pain in the freckle
though, and the headers would truly be a work of art that I'd actually pay
money to see :)

All with one hand while the other was controlling his B-52 on a short stop
