You really have to look close. Lol
Anyone identify this?
Judging by the valve cover size and spark location they could be Alexander heads that isky ran...

There's more to it than that. It is a custom crankcase with TR top ends. Probably V8-60 crank, cam, etc.
Any more pictures of the motor that's wicked
I believe I'm going to sell these. PM me if interested. They are extremely to nice to just be on a bench.
I currently have under development, a kit to convert a small block Chevy into a flathead. I will keep you all posted on any developments.
I know you guys get a lot of sun down there in Florida and that might explain it but it wouldn't hurt to see a specialist just for the hell of it.
Well lets see: A flathead engine of 50 cubes in a pulling garden tractor makes around 65Hp as of fifteen years ago, maybe more now a days..Bore stroke of 4.00 x 4.00...So that would make a 520 hp flathead using the same techonology...So use a 400 block and crank-pistons-rods...wouldn't that be neet..re post #99.
I believe there was a 351 Ford converted to flathead pictured here on the HAMB a while ago. Guy said he would sell kits or something like that. I think if you want a big flathead you should get a Lincoln or Cad Or Packard or something like that. Segeave.
Ardun, an aftermarket conversion to make a flathead, not a flathead, designed by the father of the Small Block Chevy. Well, o.k., sounds like a step in the right direction!
Read somewhere that Isky's car has Maxi heads on it. They were some sort of truck head I guess.
