    sweet man, stude motors are rulers...you got that at your place in st paul? I'll have to swing by one of these days and check out your shop for kicks, Lance and I are always bored as hell sitting around his place with nothing to do on the days I crash in the cities at his place...

    what parts are you looking for? like rebuild parts? try www.egge.com for pistons and rebuild parts and such...

    Was there ever any speed parts for these? Are they similar to anything else?

    I have a senior friend of mine has a fresh rebuilt one sitting on a workbench ready to go in a 49 Land Cruiser (?). I was going to try and find him a trans for it.

    Contenental made engine blocks for a bunch of different manufacturers some include early American Motors,Stude and heavy equiptment like pavement rollers and farm tractors my 1960 Massey Fergusson tractor had a z134 Continental 4 cylinder my dad had a 12 ton pavement roller with a Continental flat four wich we replaced with a Rambler 6 I don't know everything they supplied engines for but the list is quit big [/quote]

    Continnental still makes industrial and aircraft engines. They used to make auto engines through the 50s. In the 50s Continental was part of the Kaiser empire, so the engines were used in Kaiser-Frazer and Willys/Jeep vehicles.

    AMC NEVER used continental engines. AMC made their own engines. They didn't make the electrical parts or carbs, but an AMC engine with an Auto-Lite carb, starter, distributor, and alternator is still an AMC engine!!

    The flathead six used by AMC started out as a 1940 Nash design. You might count the 71-72 four cylinder F-head used in Jeeps made by AMC an AMC use. It was only used until supplies were used up and the AMC six was adapted to the CJ.

    I may have AMC/Rambler mixed up as to the manufacturer at the time but. my father definiatly took a flathead six out of a 1960ish rambler and installed it into a 12 ton pavement roller that had a continental 4 in it in the first place the rambler 6 bolted right up to the trans in the roller without any reworking or adapters.I was told this was because the flathead six was a continental block casting
