    Outstanding! What an inspiration for us all - even those of us who know nothing of flatheads.

  16. Christ there's some money in this fantastic build!

    I don't think I wanna know, it might deter me from building a flatty.

    Very nice work! You should be proud of this accomplishment. I give it 2 rods up!

    Wow, how did you get that incredible mirror-like polish on the intake & exhaust runners? I'll have to look at what abrassive I'm using, but it isn't coming out like that.

    Looks great and nice job. Thanks for posting.

    Hi, that motor looks really right. I am going to build a late model flathead with a 471 blower but I want to run hillborn mechanical fuel injection and need to know how to run the pump and where to get the parts. I know it's not a recommended combo but that's why I want to do it. Any help would be very much appreciated.
