Well guys, I have been sounding off about this project for so long I was starting to wonder if I'd ever go the distance to getting it finished. So here it is, I have struggled to learn and perfect the art of pattern making which has now taught me to hold pattern makers in very high esteem. I started out looking for aluminum bolt on equipment for Cadillac flathead engine rebuild and while there is some parts to be had I wanted to tidy up the front of my engine by removing the fan, fuel pump and generator as well as building a modern crank seal. Since I was planning to use the 2 x 2 carby setup, it seemed the generator may have trouble staying there any ways. I enbarked on this project to shorten the pulley area at the front of the engine and get a clean and tidy look for such an engine in a hot rod engine bay. I am prepared to accept the fact that it may have drifted away from being traditional, but I do hope I still score a few points for being original and doing it mostly myself with the exception of the casting which was done by an exceptional backyarder. I must say up front that this may not be suitable for the guys running original engines in the original Cadillac and Lasalle cars since it may not be compatible or easy to cope with a removing the fan, pump and generator.
