I’m actually doing the same thing with my Mark 75 right now. I’m rebuilding 3 Tollitson AJ554A for it.

Jpalin post=115030 userid=3017Looks nice Marc!
Why the clear tube? Also did you change the carburetors?

Because it looks cool, its clear quality fuel line.

Yes the carbs were upgraded form a Merc 350 with a fixed high speed jet.

Yeehi, just like putting on a jacket from last winter and finding a $100 bill in the pocket.

Marc, I guess I haven't been on here in quite a while and it looks like your up to another nice restoration.
Just curious where in WI did you send the engine ?  And what is this con-rod upgrade you speak of ?
