    These are for my 8ba project. Do you have a well-tried method for cleaning aluminum parts? I'd appreciate if someone could share his method.

    Lets keep this one going. I managed to pic up a pair of the Hogan twin plug heads made here in New Zealand by Ron Hogan. I am working on getting an ignition set up for it. I have a Nash 16 lead dizzy lined up and saw on another thread that Don Orosco does an adapter for the Flathead to Nash dizzy, has anyone use one of these adapter and know what they cost? Here are the pics.

  15. Ive just built a prototype twin plug dizzy for Garth using the Nash cap and the original flathead dizzy body, not real sure he would be to keen on me handing out to much info on it at the moment though as hes tooling up to market these things. PM me though if you want me to ask him if he is willing to sell you one.

    This V8 mill is amazing, though I'm no GM guy. I'm frankly stumped!
    My wag is flat Cad, about '47.:confused: It's in a '52 Chevy in a junkyard. Fire away!

    Here are some rare Alexander 1938 f-head cylinder heads for 24 stud flathead engines. Several sets were made for 21 stud engines but only two or three sets were made for the 24 stud.

    Also i don't know if this helps but the French flathead front timing cover takes a Nash twin fire dizzy without any modification. Have just built one for a customer.
    PM me if you need one, have plenty spare.

    Cheers Jim

    velocity f heads, they made 3 pairs, i found them burried in an old timers garage, told a buddy who actually has money and he worked out a deal on them. i ended up with the blue prints, i had them scanned but when the last computer crapped out i lost them, they are still saved on a disc somewhere just have to find it. it would be neat to make a run of them but they supposedly didn't run much better than a stocker.
