    Binga. I love everything about that RPU. Stance, choice of wheels, wheel color, etc. You did good. A couple of questions: Are you running an electric pump through a mechanical? Seems like you're switching it off in the video. And what the hell is a Waggot?

    Yeah I lucked out, i got this and two 1936 top loaders from a guy in allentown for 150$.

    Any idea what the going rate of 99 motors are? The few people who know what they are wont tell me since they want to buy mine when they find out i have one,,, and the rest just simply think its a 59ab etc.

    You sure did luck out!! My experience has been that you can virtually name your price for a decent 99. I've seen a couple of auctions on Ebay that were ended early because somebody made an offer the buyer couldn't refuse. I called a guy on the west coast about one about a year ago. It had been in a 40 Merc that sat in a field for years and he knew what he had. He wanted $1200. I also saw one from a 39 Merc go for around $500 or $600 on Ebay but the seller didn't hype it as a 99 block. Keep it and build it. If it's not cracked you'll have yourself a sweet mill that you can probably easily bore to 3 3/8".

    This blown 276 was built by Motor city Flatheads about 12 years ago and is in a 40 Ford in WPB FL. My 40 is on the left. Joe's 276 40 is on the right.

    Michael. If those are in Germany that makes sense. The 99 series blocks were used in 39-41 Mercs (99A) and large Ford trucks (99T). That would have included military transport trucks some of which would have ended up in Europe. The first photo looks like a 99 with the upper and lower keystone water outlet holes and a round one in the middle. The second one looks like it has three keystones although I may not be seeing it clearly. Those are usually 39-41 Ford car or small truck blocks. They were sleeved to 3 1/16". Both may have the raised intake deck. Ford didn't do us any favors in IDing their blocks during that era. But the 99's usually have identification around the right chatter rod boss.
     
  24. Thanks for the compliment.

    I'm only running a mechanical fuel pump what you see me doing is giving the soleinoid(sp) a tap as it sometimes sticks on, besides the fuel was pumping from the can at my feet as I don't have my fuel tank in yet.

    Waggott was a local manufacturer, to Australia, and made after market heads and intakes....I only know of 5 other sets of the heads but there has to be more of them about.

    How about Tawco? (spelling). Big Al traded us an NOS two duece Tawco intake for a pair of Edmunds heads a couple of years ago. We were wondering how rare the intake is.
     
  29. Tawco produced alot of stuff for boats.
    My motor had a Tawco 2x2 on it when I bought it.
