    Cutting an MGB manifold to fit the A Series head (and welding back together) is common amongst SCCA F Production racers. I have one (welded) on F Prod car right now.

    Re: one very, very quick Triumph Spitfire

    I'm sure "Krantz" transmission refers to Ron Krantz of ReK Racing in Holly, Michigan (down the road a little from me).

    I thought all 1275's came with double row timing chains. With the engine out of the car, I think you ought to pull the timing chain cover and take look. You'll likely be pleasantly surprised.
