    Hello! Welcome to Mart's Garage. This week I show the progress on the French Flatty 59A clone build. I also road test the truck and make a decision on that motor. A discovery makes me question that decision and wonder which path I should take, though.
    Watch along and enjoy the journey with me.
    Thanks for watching and may you all have a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
    Mart.

  2. Good video Mart ,
    Some interesting things inside that engine,,,,,lots of measurements that are way off on a few rods there .
    I think you should measure all the pistons and rods,,,,,,and check your bearings as well .
    Who knows what is the total stack up on tolerance checks .
    Good luck,,,,,,and have a Merry Christmas !
