Great shots. Is that a reverse flow flattie on the bottom left? I'll take them all!

I really like looking at all the odd ball stuff like Voltage Regulators, Spark plug wire placement, Oil Filters. That's all the stuff I am going through with my '35 right now so I love to see pics of engine bays to give me ideas. Thanks!!

Is that a tractor grill shell in the title picture? It looks like a Farmall to me.

#8 is a Cad/LaSalle, could be the early '30's V8 since it shared the 60 degree archetecture with the V12 and V16. Later in the '30's Cad/LaSalle went to a 90 degree flathead to reduce costs.

I believe #11 is a Pontiac straight 8.

The one on the bottom left looks like the late 30's Cad/LaSalle V8: flathead but the exaust exited from the top of the block. Bigger motor than a Ford but no speed parts to speak of, and lots heavier. Cad used this one until the OHV V8 in '49. Lots of hot rods used it but the exhaust was always 'in the way'.

I like the last one: a supercharger with a single carb, stock exhaust manifolds, and chrome acorn nuts! The rebuilder plate looks like it says 'Coach Maintenance Inc.". Could this have been a bus/truck engine?

Neat group of photos, but that can't be a Farmall because those were never used. Traditionnally.

Can't say whether or not that's a truck engine, but the blower's an early McCulloch. I've always wanted to find one of those beasts.

Fantastic photos... I'm so glad that these get shared here.

The engines are so nice. And the photos are so much nicer than the modern stuff.

I always love to look in the backgrounds, trying to spot the early custom cars.
