Oi David, have you been pinching my photos?*  :rotfl:  I have a photo of the Lola(?) engine bay taken from almost exactly the same angle, and I went soooo close to posting it with the others but I thought three was enough!
 
Lee, that is the Kurtis, if that helps -

I agree about the MSD box, and the modern fittings.


*Joke, to be clear.

ISTR that Soichiro Honda used a Curtiss V8 in his first car, exposed pushrods and rockers IIRC. It was at the FoS a few years ago. OT I know.

Speaking of Curtis V8s

a plate inside the Monarch suggests the motor came from a Curtis H12 flying boat powered by a 160 hp Curtis V-X-X I believe.

 

 

Ralph, can I suggest you adjust your spelling, if not to the majority of well-informed posters here, then to that number plate?

 

It really iss... Curtiss ...ss ...ss ...ss!!  ;)  ;)
