moefuzz, MY GOD! I have NEVER seen such a well documented, excellently photographed; assembled group of information on Ford flathead bell housings and oil pans in my life!!

I doubt that Ford themselves ever gathered ALL that information over the 22* year history of the beloved flathead.
(* 22 years includes 1954; the year Canada and Austrailia ceased production)

I can't wait for the PDF version!!
(but in the mean time; I SURE "book marked" your site!!)

THANKS for sharing!!
Dave
