Next up we have Hornet Six and the Hornet Twin-H Six.
The Hornet Six was a cast iron power plant and displaced 308 CID. Like all the Hudson 6 cylinders this was an in-line L-head. This had 3 – 13/16 bore and 4.50″ stroke and a compression ratio of 7.5:1 and with a two barrel Carter carb (WDG Model 2252S) it would be the Hornet down the street with 165 hp.
The Hornet Twin-H Six is basically the same engine, same displacement, bore and stroke, but this was topped with 2 WA-1 Carters (Model 2113S) one barrel carbs. This set up helped it reached 175 hp.
Thanks for reading. The V8’s are coming up!!
