    Flat-O-Matic arrived! Decided I had better pull the heads off and take a look.

    I guess a rebuild can consist off new rings to some.HAHA

    The block had a little bit of rust!

    Valves pulled and cleaned, waiting for new spings. This is a cheapie build.

    Crank cleaned still had original Ford bearings. Mains look ok but I think Im going to have to turn the rods.

    Time to port, polish and relieve! A new learing curve for me!

    My Great Niece came to visit. I wanted to keep her. First thing she asked, "which engine are we putting in it". Thats My Girl!

    You need to get the block Sonic checked to see what the wall thickness is, even if it passes Mag a wall could split from being way too thin

    Thanks everyone! I'm on the fence on building or buying the intake? Doesn't seem to be too difficult but someone said a 2 deuce intake is what you want? I have few single intakes? My current plan is just to port , relieve, turn stock crank, rings, bearing, big cam, gas and go have fun!

    If your still wondering about the car....I can say with 95% probability that it was the car that went to England. If you respond I'll ask my uncle and he'll be able to say, considering he was there. Where did you get this pic? Do you have more?

    I have to get to the LSRU again. Miss all you guys!

    What a great story on the car Kathy. Hopefully you can get some definite history on it and get to building.
