Ford Flathead 59AB
Removing the head from a 1947 Ford flathead after sitting for 30 plus years
with water in it.
Flathead Ford Engine Start Up
we found this in a field. we kept the stock crank, rods, and pistons. this
has new valves and guides. new crane cam, and aftermarket edelbrock heads,
with fenton duel 2x2 intake with a pair of rebuilt holley 94's. i added
headers with harley davidson mufflers, and a high torque mini starter. ive
had some of my friends laugh at my color scheme, they thought it should be
in a circus. a girl on a facebook page thought it was a spaceship so we
launched it today.

The Sweet Sounds of a Flathead Ford V8
This motor came in as a block with original crank with the machine work
completed in preparation for a rebuild. The parts came from Honest Charley
Speed Shop, spec'd by hot rodding ace Mike Goodman including custom
polished Sharp heads and dual carb intake. Hal Everett spent some quality
time assembling the motor and getting the carbs tuned as well as figuring
out some distributor and water pump fitment issues. The result is one of
the best sounding flathead motors that we have ever heard (and believe us
we've heard a whole bunch of them). We threw this video together just to
share the sweet sounds of this engine in a short YouTube clip, but couldn't
bring ourselves to cut it any shorter. So forgive us, it is a little long,
but such an awesome sounding engine, we just had to share.
