You have any more pictures or dimensions on the master cylinder adapter? I'd like to see them.

Thanks. Is the bellcrank 1:1?
Interested sending a message
After giving some thought on the good information here and checking with my financial advisor (picture above)definitely going to fix the wall in the car now. Makes the most dollars and sense, appreciate the input.
That wallet is FAT! Must be lots of hot rod money in there.
My back hurts just seeing that wallet...

THIS is GREAT
I just about fell out of my chair when I read this!!!! So awesome!!! That flathead looks right at home in there.
Well those peddles were sold by the time I got there no big going to keep the hanging ones that were put in back in the last century, who the hell knows when,gives me more money towards the repaint it fund.By they way you know that wallet is full of old bills that haven’t been paid .Not going to use the hot water heater going electric this time so a little less crap on the repaired firewall.I had a old friend who has been winding generators/ alternators for 40 years build one rated at 105Amps. Going to mount this up under the glovebox.Shes also going to get some new rubber it had date code 38/07 so I think it’s time for for some new sneakers. Right now it has p245/70R16 rear and the fronts are P185/65R15Goodyear Eagles.The local guy I been dealing with for 40years says he can get the Eagles any more , so what are you using for big and littles?
It’s been some time but I got the delivery of the final sets of jets needed for the new 97s ,so some time late this week she will get her turn on the dyno. The original plan he was going to call me the morning of the dyno runs but not sure if that’s going to happen now that I live in the epicenter of the China Vires.
This is an awesome thread! I love seeing someone pulling a 327 and replacing it with a flatty. I cant believe all the anti flathead hate going around in the beginning of this thread! A blown flatty is cooler than a 327 any day.
For me the great story of the flathead goes back to its ancient history of outrunning Johnny Law back in the nineteen thirties , long before the first small block...
1953 8BA in a 40 Ford
That motor picture speaks to me..... It says"the wallet isn't so fat anymore".
ok so what was the dyno results?????
The Bias Plys & look a-likes are pretty spendy, so if you can live with a more modern look, I like Radial TA's or Coopers for sneakers.
Good move, it's your car build it the way you see fit. Awesome blown flathead.
I am in the process of removing the 351 cleveland from my 1952 F-1 pickup and installing an 8BA. I have no doubt that it will be slower. Yep crazy................... I know
Please keep the updates coming.
Slower, schmower, that's gonna look great in there! Fast ain't everything... cool, on the other hand, is!
I say Bullshit to this. SBC's belong in C's. it is sacrilege, (violation or misuse of what is regarded as sacred.) to do so!!!!!!!!
That’s really a great looking motor you have there!

I look at this way.... if it’s your car you can put an effing’ lawnmower engine if you want! I bite my lip on what some people put in, or how they build there stuff Sometimes though, I just laugh to myself, sometimes out loud and point. Though my wife usually smacks me! if you want to look like an a retarded idiot driving down the road, that’s your choice!
There's always a support group of idiots swarmed around them at car shows too...
