Hey all you historians: Dave Newell, Bob Helt, James Rice, any others?
     This afternoon I acquired a photocopy of a Rochester Products Division drawing, Dwg. No. EX-25618, which is purported to be a proposal for fuel injection for the 1960 Corvair.  The layout shows what appears to be a 6-cylinder modification of the mechanical FI system that was used on several Corvettes during the 60s.
     What's interesting, though, is that it's shown (quite clearly) on a 60-degree V-6.  It also appears to be on a water-cooled engine.  What gives here?!?
     I have scanned the drawing and will gladly forward a copy to anyone who can shed some light on this bit of history.
