If I told you I have to kill you.
Looks like aluminum to me. Come on spill the beans, are your trying kill us with the suspence.
oh freakin' my.
and if I stuck my finger in the end exhaust ports down by the flanges - what would I feel?
that is cool as hell. So who gets the 2nd one?
New aluminum casting?????
Doesn't everyone have one of these???
A prostate gland!
Zack carved three of those out of a solid block of aluminum last Saturday, right??
And...when you throw an old engine block into your pickup for traction, use an IRON one--the extra weight helps a lot.
ifit aint steel, it aint real ! i ll give you 50 bucks for it.
thats is a billet flathead
doesn't look billet to me. Looks cast. and it's obviously been run a while, so... is it a test bed block?
No, looks cast to me. I'm liking the rear seal.
How cool would that look polished?
Are the cylinders sleeved?
Is it standard bore?
very interesting....tell us more.
it's a cast alloy flattie block - 59A decks, 8BA bellhousing pattern
Main webs are fat; mains are studded with dowel locators concentric to the studs as opposed to the interlocking crescents of a stock block
center main is a 4 bolt
valve guides look to be SBC dimensions and made of bronze
valve bowls are HUGE
valves look to be bigger than 1.60's
bores look to be bigger than 3-3/8ths
exhaust flange outlets look waay bigger than stock
Motor looks to be dry-sleeved
valve reliefs look to be bench flowed (not at all like an 8RT)
and...the damned thing was lit and run.
that's about all I noticed on the first pass...what did I miss?
Hey Chuckspeed, Why don't you actually LOOK at the pics before posting a reply. GEEZ
That ain't no real flathead. REAL flatheads are covered in GUNK!
Baked on forever, "The Blob that ate Philadelphia" type gunk.
That's just some silly assed re-valved, relieved, big bore race motor with some use on it... I like the mains setup. Where's the crank? I'd like to see that.
So who's was it?
I hear ya! If there was a way to lay that shit down as pavement - we'd have roads that lasted forever...
Betcha it had a 180 degree crank...
It's a standard flathead with aluminum paint....
Oh come on, just tell us!!
My sentiments exactly.
I want one... or two... Where can I get em? Do you think Santa would bring it?
Didn't Grancor sell these back in the day? New aluminum flatheads. Surplus military.....or is it a new one from Motor City Flathead and Shadow Rods? Maybe FlatheadJack got off his ass.
Is that the new Ford mod-motor?
HA! No, that looks WAY too lightweight to be any kind of mod motor.
Ahhh... its not a gennie part, just some cheap knock off! Lemme take it off your hands for... recycling.
One of the Flathead Jack or Motor City makes?
Wha?................ I WANT, nay. MUST have one? Wheres a cross road when you need to sell your soul??
