As some of you know I have been running Ford Flathead blocks for some time in our Land Speed race car. Its been eight years of trial and error with our race car learning how to get reliability and power out of our beloved supercharged on racing gasoline Flathead Ford blocks. On Friday July 13th 2018 running my car at the Loring Timing Associations land speed event in Limestone Maine my car was timed at 200.921 Miles Per Hour. Some details about the run. It was made from a standing start no push just the power of the engine powering the car to the top end finish line which is 1.5 miles. On the run the mile speed was 185.773 Now some details about the engine. Its an 8BA block bored 3 -5/16 with a 4 1/4 stroke crankshaft. The block is not modified the original intake ports are retained and the stock exhaust passages are used exactly how the block was originally designed. Some have said those three exhaust ports per side are a big hindrance to flow and performance I have found otherwise. The blower is small 2.3 in size and theres a four barrel carb feeding this little monster. As far as we know no other Ford roadster bodied race car powered by a Ford Flathead valve in block engine has run 200 MPH prior to this run.
