In the mid 50s there were 500 cubic inch inline 6 cylinder engines that had a hemispherical piston design. It seemed it escaped the notice of most mechanics but the exhaust manifold was mounted on one side of the engine and the Intake manifold was installed on the other.

I understand none of this means nothing to reloaders but the mechanics rebuilt one of engines and then decided it did not need all of that plumbing so they left it off

Then came the time for the road test; they had to take the truck off the highway because it would quit running after a few miles. It bothered me to see that magnificent old truck confined to the yard for moving equipment locally.
