      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

Does anyone cast this engine or maby avaliable in some more recent toolings that dont cost a fortune?

I would love to get hold on 2 of them,or actually it`s the valve covers and timing covers i`m most

interested in.

Ideas and suggestions are appricated.

Thanks

Last I knew, that engine was in the MPC '69 Firebird kit. I have the kit buried somewhere in the house, but I'm quite sure it had that six in it. 

I don't remember the last reissue of that one (should have been fairly recent), and I don't know of anyone casting it, although others might know. 

HTH!

Some '80s reissues of the MPC '69 Camaro also had it. These were molded in black, and got the Pontiac engines tree instead of Chevy for some reason. (Firebird interior, too, I think.)

There is an online site (I can't remember the name) that has instruction sheets for a BUNCH of models. Look up the instructions for the kits mentioned above to confirm that's what you're looking for.

The MPC/AMT 69 Firebird kits did have the Pontiac Sprint 6cyl engines in them...I have no clue if I have any or not left.

The MPC Daytona Transporter kit also has the OHC Pontiac inline six-cylinder engine, which you can get a decent look at here: http://round2corp.com/model-kit-instructions/uploads/mpc787.pdf

I wish I'd thought of that quote!!!

You're probably thinking of the Revell Mickey Thompson Attempt I, which had two Pontiac Tempest "half a V8" fours.
