    I used search words "motor city flathead" and it came up first on the list. I don't know enough about pc's or I would type or link the web address to your post.

    Thanks everyone.
    Trouble is the site only shows CONTACT info. now.

    I know Mark Kirby was dealing with some health problems a while ago, but the original site had product information .. and now it seems to be gone.

    Anyone been in contact with Mark or the company in the past while?

    I'm interested in purchasing a set of main bearing reinforcement bars for a flathead.

    Mark is a lot better and busy finishing they new block casting. The main cap support they do does a real good job and is well worth the money.

    BJJ, Thanks. Just saw the post on Flathead Jack's site on the NEW flathead that he and Mark Kirby are working on. WOW! That will be one "killer" flathead.

    I sent an email to MCF yesterday regarding the main bearing support caps. Waiting for reply.

    I was just down to see Jon, Mark, Tom, Ashley and the boys last week,.... Mark is working like a man on a mission, and when they do release the block it will blow you away.

    It's not of the Flattie,. but I really liked the full fendered XL-27, so I got some cell phone shots of it.

    You must have been around Gollers Hotrod Shop. At the nats Phil said he was putting the engine in the mule this week for a test run and he mentioned something about Pleasanton?
