Lakewood 140 project
Posted by: Westds ()

The 140 installation in my Lakewood went well. Installing the engine is tight as there are cutouts to give more clearance around the two primary carbs but none for the secondaries. This makes for a very tight fit between the secondaries and the opening. The 140 requires dual mufflers and this also makes for a little creative thought. So far I am satisfied with the acceleration given it is a automatic.
I installed a Spyder dash and with the thermistor hooked up all the gauges now work.

Tight fit but nicely done. In regard to exhaust you could fab large xover similar to BIG SINGLE and one 2 1/2" turbo muffler. Search 'big single' or if Matt reads this he can fill you in. Also Al Lacki described building one here
and in COMMUNIQUE in the last several years.

Again I will say the install looks very nice and clean.

best wishes, Steve

Is the engine a manual trans 140 or an Powerglide 140 with the 4 deg retarded crank gear?
