    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
