I have the a chance to pickup a 1989 750 il engine for possible use in a 1947 Kaiser-Frazer project car. Does anyone know of a thread or source of info on running this motor in a "'manual mode" without the brain box via carbs and a conventional ignition system? I also understand that this motor will mate with a manual 6 speed transmission from a 540. Can anyone recommend a source for information on this? The conversion would replace a 100 hp cast iron 6 cylinder w/ a manual 3 speed, therefore I don't care if the conversion results in less hp then the factory setup. Thanks!
