Ford Model T Half engine

I cut this T model Ford engine in half in 1957 using 11 hacksaw blades. The only part not cut with the hacksaw was the camshaft as it was too hard and had to ground through.

Open Engine Model A Ford
1929 Ford Model A Open Runner Engine Display. The first thing you will notice is that the engine is on it's side to give a semi-full view of it's moving parts. Next you will see the distributor has been moved upright to give a better view of the pistons and valves. The 4th cylinder is the only working part of the engine. Bearings and pistons are lubricated with grease and oil. Run times are short due to overheating. There is no cooling other than a few holes drilled into the waterjacket by the Exhaust. Yes, I could have made it water-cooled, but it's the start-up that makes the show! Thanks to Lee Bottensek, Art Hoppe, and Joe Thorn of MetalCrafters (www.metalcraftersinc.org) for their donations towards this project.

This is the 2010 4 Port OHV conversion for the Model A and B Ford. It's modeled after the 1929 R&R Cyclone originally created by Robert Roof of Anderson, Indiana, USA. Charlie Yapp, owner of Scalded Dog Speed Parts contacted Jim Roof, Robert's grandson, and Jim became the new "Chief Designer" and Charlie the producer. The end result is nothing short of a wildly successful mechanical achievement . The power and inefficiency are huge and surprising. The parts are mostly off the shelf at your local dealer.
