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.
How to Split a Wishbone project
This video is a step by step, Do It Yourself (DIY) Hot Rod DVD that we
produced and included in a split wishbone kit we used to offer at MB
One of my goals when we decided to produce these DVDs was to accurratly
depict what the large majority of Hot Rod builders might encounters when
working on their cars: a small work space, access to basic power tools, a
typical mechanics tool box, etc.
We found the perfect "set" while visiting my parents home; their two car
garage, was the very same place my Dad scratch built a dozen Hot Rods while
raising a family and maintaining the familys' cars.
This ones not to complicated and I hope it answers some questions and
serves as an accurrate guide to those who are new to building Hot Rods.
We also produced DVD's in this series that went over "Z-ing" a frame,
mounting engines and transmissions, traditional steering and suspension
systems for Hot Rods and some involved things like rebuilding a Model A
body and what to look for when buying Flathead Ford V8 blocks.
I could upload the others if they can help some people move their projects

Flathead v12 (lincoln zephyr) Rat Rod Truck.mpg
LOOK FOR PART 2 HERE: http://youtu.be/ZqySYf5dWrw
This is a crazy creation by dad is building from spare parts from other
projects. It is a 1935 truck that has been Z-framed, chopped, channeled
and roadstered. To make the gears high enough for road use, it has 2 1935
4 speed transmissions (no syncro/double clutch). One is running backwards
to act as a variable overdrive. The most exciting part is that it has a
1947 Lincoln Zephyr Flathead V12 with single header pipes coming off each
cylinder. That makes for a very unique sound. Enjoy the video.

Genuine original old 32 Ford barnfind first run out after some engine

day... Also look at first road drive
