  3. Only $30k for a dyno tested mill w/ cpu :eek: And only $12k for a do it yourself kit :eek:
  4. You could probably build an Ardun for that price!

  6. Im amazed at the innovation and persistence to see it through.

    No mention of the HP/TQ it makes though.

    Anyone know ?

    I don't know.. It seems like taking a step forward and two steps back. Kinda like taking an LS engine and sticking SBC heads on there and adapting a Mag to work on it.

    Interesting to see however.

    Seems to me to be the answer to a question nobody asked, or at least shouldn't have asked....

    Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.

    Some people just have too much spare time. That's the dumbest thing I've seen on the Hamb, ever!

    The contact person is Dick Beith, I wonder if that is the same Dick Beith who ran E.T. Wheels in the late 60s, early 70s. Just askin'!
  15. Interesting concept, but for $30K, I would be building a Ford motor that moves the camshaft out of the block, not putting the valves back into it.....

    Ya gotta love america, we invent everything you ever wanted and even stuff you never knew you wanted. :rolleyes:

    I think that there was an entire thread devoted to this thing last year and it was taboo to say any of the obvious negatives about the idea because the builder was someone special.

    I am sure that someone will want it good for them.
  17. PRICE is $30,000 for a Dyno-proven 402 Flathead with computer, wiring, pumps and accessories. Just install and go! Add $1,000 for 16 main bolt NASCAR block.
    I'll take two..................

  19. It is hard to believe all of the stuff that goes into this hobby. I would sure like to see one and hear it run. Now we are creating a flathead out of an OHV and have created an OHV out of a flathead. Only in America. This is great stuff. thanks for posting.

    I wonder what crank and rods it uses. It would make sense to design around something that is already proven and available, something with 4 main bearings. Also better water pumps and an exhaust port for each cylinder. Other than the cost of this engine I think it's a great idea, A V8 water cooled giant Briggs and Stratton. Put a 6-71 on it and go raise some hell. I love it, but can't afford it.

    OK, it's a Windsor block.

  21. Did you even read the web site, or are just commenting?

    He is using a Ford Windsor Block, like a 351 Ford block. These have 5 main bearings, and he's using a 4" stroke and a 4" bore. Crank and rods could come from a variety of sources in both cast and forged.

    now its got me wondering, with all the coilpack covers for GM's LS engines...when will someone get around to making a coilpack cover that looks like a flathead ribbed head?

    I may be interested in a repop olds rear. They repop quick changes as well.
  26. I hope someone uses one of them. I'd love to hear it run etc.

    Because I can't lay my hands on an original olds rear.

    Oh were you asking me? :D
  29. Whatever. I like Flatheads but wont be buying one of these anytime soon. Just not my idea of sound spending.

    Some of the coil covers look and function just like a front mounted distributor :D
