Default Re: My flathead engine

A couple of other questions that I did not answer:

Yes, the heads, intake and gear cover is powder coated. I am getting too old to polish on aluminum or chrome.

I think I will powder coat(black) the air cleaners.

The pistons and heads are ceramic coated. We have used this in the past on our race engines----Why not on this last street engine!

I am sure most noticed we converted the block to 66% filtered flow.

One comment----I am using Flathead Jack's stainless valves. I was super pleased, when used with his retainers, no shims were needed. Also, no back cutting was necessary---they were ready to go out of the box.
