    Or have I completely lost my mind?


    Shes got a aluminium 32 oil pan, will have a matching ORD breather stand, an angle drive with custom ignition (the zephyr actually belongs on the 40 coupe), and a winfield cam. She will be going in a 28 rumble seat roadster (some ford steel, some brookville). With a chassis built the way the recent tech article was done. Ill post pics as They come in, hope you all enjoy!

    Its ORD heads and intake, with Siamese Winfield SR AA with B choke horns. Each pair is sequential serial numbers, and have been together as a set of 4 since new. No aircleaners going on this one. 21a block with merc bore. hope to use an aluminium flywheel as well. Itll be a full fendered prewar style roadster. Juice brakes. Keeping it prewar. ca 1939.

    I'd like it better if it was going in MY '32, but it's gorgeous and sounds like it'll make the little roadster scoot!

    sorry, there really hasnt been much change between then and now. Did some work to the cowl, tank and doors, stripped and primed them, frame too actually. Its too cold to work in the shop now (its not heated). Most of what Ive been doing threw the winter was tying up lose ends on my 40, painting its dash, and rebuilding (term used loosly) the shift cover.

    The oil pans are out there, but thought to find, in the same box came a holley 92. I think the pan was easier to find to be honest.

    me and technology dont exactly see eye to eye, I dont even have any other pictures of the roadster or the motor to offer. That one was a quick phone job so I could upload it at McDonalds lol.


    Ill try to keep it updated a bit more often, :)

  16. Be sure to remember that the '32 pan doesn't have a crankcase breather vent.

    Yeah, Im not quite sure what to do about that. Not a big fan of PVC valves. Even less of a fan of cutting a hole in it for a breather, even tho I have seen some that are works of art. What are the implications of less than optimal crank case ventilation? More oil changes? Thanks!

    Show a pic of the breather area...I'm assuming you just have a flat space and a hole there. You could cover that with a plate and a fitting to run a hose as road draft breather tube or snake it around into a secret PCV, better...
    Look at the Technical History of the Racing Flathead article...I think that'e the one that shows an unventilated early racing flathead with its steel type pan actually bulged from high RPM blowby! That's not the real problem, though...you will get rapid sludging and acid formation in there. The breather will adequately vent normal pressures but cannot provide moving air to get all the water (and other stuff0 the engine produces outtathere.

    Still moving along, slowly but moving. Pistons would have been in, if I remembered to borrow my frinds ring compressor!

    Subscribed, should be interesting, very nicely detailed flattie. When rest of car is detailed to the same as engine it'll be sweet.

    I know, I know, its been a long time, I had been planning on posting some pics, but my computer decided to delete all my pics last week, but here is a pic of a new toy, Ive not quite finished the cosmetic restoration of them, and barely scratched the surface on the mechanical end, but at least they look pretty now. Not sure why the above pics have been lost???

    My water pumps are back from skip, and a few other things have been done, but really not too much to report. Maybe after the long weekend, some work will get done!
