As some of you know, I've been working on a big, bad-ass blown Flathead Cadillac V8 for the FlatCad Racing Team. I started down this path with Buddy Walker about a year ago -- it has been a long, but rewarding journey. Here is a picture of the engine mockup at the machine shop where I have all my work done "Fowler Engines" in Columbus, OH. Here are the specs on what you see: 1) 3.5 x 4.625 stroke flathead Cadillac - circa about 1942 or so (best as we can tell from the block). The only thing left in this engine that is original . . . is the block . Every other part has been re-engineered and designed for our Bonneville efforts. Most of the work has been done in 3D CAD - so we could 'virtually prototype' all the components . . . crank, rods, pistons, heads, girdles, timing cover plates, etc.. Here yah go: I hope to start the initial assembly process in the next two weeks - then get the engine on the dyno so we can get some horsepower numbers. Truth be told, none of us have any idea as to what HP we can get out of this beast. What I can tell you is that we're doing just about everything humanly possible to make some serious flathead HP . . . the dyno will make men or mice out of us shortly . . .
