Well Chris I've never heard them called finger washers but I have heard them called spring washers before. The actual name of these washers is a Marcel Washer.
Go ahead and ask a question. I haven't got one off the top of my head right now.

I found this on the internet!

" Finger washers are notable for their split construction with protruding flanges. They combine the flexibility of a crescent washer with the distributed load points of a wave washer. They are common for noise and vibration dampening instances."



Its not quite fair to every one You said in your question "they supply spring pressure" !!) So you put in a pretty good tip

For the sake of conversation, it is my understanding that less than 300 sets of Ardun heads were produced for the big flatheads. I seriously doubt that any were marketed through Ford but it could be possible that some Ford dealers independently sold some through their dealerships. I have read several good articles on the Duntov heads but always end up wishing I new more. They are a fascinating piece of history.

GM produced cross ram intake for Chevrolet. Released in late 1967. It was available through dealer parts dept.

Chevy option for 302 cu inch with 3 optional cams available. 1968 69. I think (off the top of my head) Headers were not installed on the engine but were wrapped and put in the trunk for the new owner to install!!! It was a package! We ran a factory sponsored Camaro in the 60s with this package the intake is a GM copy of Smokies cross ram with his permission.

Maybe started in 67 like John said!

We had to build up runner dams because of low rpm puddling of fuel on the bottom and in corners of the intake.

I thought it was only available through parts or dealer installed. If it was a z28 option Chris is the winner. Ask away Chris.

If Im Right? Heres a question!


In 1957 The 283 was said to be the first engine rated at 1 H.P. per cubic inch! But one year earlier in 1956 there was another engine rated at 1 H.P. per C.I. Any one know what that engine was?


This picture is really cool!!
