Re: Flathead books

Actually I ship all the Amazon orders. They (Amazon) keep about 30% of the sale. Although more Amazon orders have arrived than all the other sources the $$ in my pocket are not significant. Please...

Re: Flathead speed and machine

Scott injection systems used the Stromberg base. Very simple design with a single "nozzle" dump in between the throttle plates. Most difficult to get set up for running gasoline but claims were made...

Re: I'd like to start a new thread on the components used in building a flathad

I covered the subject of angle milling in my book. There is more to it than simply shimming the head before face milling. The bolt holes need to be reamed to be perpendicular to the new face and the...

Re: Gosfast Gary from NY?

Yes, it is a shame and as others mentioned it sort of comes with the old car hobby to see these unfortunate announcements. RIP Gary.

Re: standard ford with a 331 rear gear

If everything is in decent condition and the terrain is reasonable it will work great. I often start with 2.23 gearing and just a bit of clutch slip makes it simple. The 3.31 should be even better.

Re: 266 versus 276 CI?

Probably less than a 5 HP difference depending on other component choices and intended use.
