humm, well its not a matter of having it in front, its a matter of space, see laugh if you want, but i am trying to design an engine for running on alcohol and gasoline, and since i am a mechanical freak (whats sexier than electro mechanicals, hydraulic lines, cables, belts and levers???) i want to have 2 distributors for the optimal timing curve for each fuel and be able to switch from one to another while i drive. of course i still have the problem with wiring the high tension leads, but it will come to me. if any of you have a better idea (a mechanical one) i am all ears. BTW i still am interested in more makers of the front drive distributer covers. (i can use it to drive something else)
humm and about headaches, cost, and parts availability, thats not really an issue, their are no headaches when your having fun. and i am not playing with mechanical things cuz they are easy or "normal".... so if it costs more initially so be it, could actually end up not costing much when compared to what i get out of it, i have friends that are machinists, drag racers, circle track racers, shop owners, and have the support of my family, and i have access to aircraft parts as i am going to school to be an aircraft mechanic (a little more than a semester be4 i hold my ticket hopefully). now that you all know where i am coming from maybe this will help :-)
