Technical Volume of Ford Flathead v8 Transfer Area

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by indestructableforce, Oct 20, 2019.

  1. Was wondering if anyone has measured the volume of the transfer area on the stock or original performance or repop heads. As I understand it, Mercury engines had a larger transfer area to keep the compression low with the additional displacement. I’m thinking about investing in a 4-71 blower so compression ratio Im not worried so much about as I am getting the best air flow possible given the constraints or without overwhelming the main bearings (not some bonneville engine).

    mike davidson discusses this in "street flathead." a lot of people agree that high compression may get you across the intersection faster, but flow is more important.
