Well Will; technically the 40 bastard is really only 36 according to the manual. But, the original bastard was replaced with a factory replacement 40, so I guess it really is 40. But, in the old days of drag racing in a Type I, a 36 horse would outrun, barely, a 40 horse in a quarter mile. The 40 would out top end the 36 slightly, but the 36 had slightly better acceleration for some reason. Have to take my word for it cause there ain't no more bone stock untouched 36 and 40 horse from the factory engines around anymore.
