My father and I have always wanted to have a Flathead to play with and eventually build a car around and recently I came across a 51 truck motor for sale that had been used it's whole life running some kind of pump or something on a factory stand made for it labeled General Power Inc, Quapaw, Okla. It ended up being a 51 pickup engine with a single 94 carburetor and a stuck/bent valve that didn't run but we have since gotten it running and then dressed it up with some parts that we have had sitting around over the years. We found a tag on the motor saying it had been remanufactured at some point and when we pulled the intake and heads and drained the oil, it was clean inside and had no cracks. Running warm, it has about 25 pounds of oil pressure and drops to about 15 pounds warm and idling at 200 rpm. We pulled the rear PTO unit and mounted a stock transmission and added a set of steel pack mufflers and blocked heat risers to give it a good sound. I have a 31 coupe body and some 32 rails that we will eventually put this motor in, but for now it's fun to just start it and let it idle on the stand.
