What do you know about the Morand small block engines used in the seventies? I currently have one in my car and am looking for more information in general about Morand. I see that they are used in many applications but am curious to know more. Anyone have any information or are there any articles relating to them? I also have an ID tag on the motor from Morand, and am wondereing what does it reference?

You will find the number on that tag will reference all major spec's for that engine on Morands records where ever they may be.................
