Ok so I'm back on it and hooked on flatheads! Reading everything I can get my hands on. Here we go: Pulled the flathead out of my roadster project that was rebuilt...NOT! LOL Out and its new mate a C4 Trans all cleaned up and ready. 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 Time to get to work. That was a days worth! Blower parts came in and Flat-O-Matic All torn down. Hoping for a 4" Merc crank but I'll go with it! 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!
