Here are a couple of pictures of a 283M. What I call the detuned 283. 2 barrel intake and carb to lower the horsepower everything else with the engine is the same as the 185 hp engine. Engine came out of a plywood caviler. http://s8.postimage.org/orgvg8izl/IMG_1964.jpg http://s8.postimage.org/bol8wy...
