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.

1941 Ford Flathead V8 Engine Start-up
After a mammoth rebuild, and 40 years since its last startup, the engine is finally started on the 1941 Ford Truck. A tense moment. Not entirely sure that Cornwall is ready for this but the audience in the boat yard seemed to enjoy themselves. To find out how the rest of the rebuild is progressing, there is more on the website at www.oldropesalvage.co.uk.





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.
