I was wondering how the velocity stack was assembled. Thinking about it, it seems like everything would have been assembled but for the brace, which was then threaded through the hole in the stack and bolted on.
It appears that when they built #36 they decided to customize the intake ports and angled the carbs out rather than in towards the tranny.
