Default Mart's update: 2021 No7. Ol' 59 Flatty Project Pt. 23. Top end Tidy Up. Motor Dunski.

Hello. Welcome to Mart's Garage.
This week will feature a milestone in the progress on the Ol' 59 Flatty. Hey, get this. The motor is done! Watch as I get the top end all buttoned up. I skim the heads, something I didn't think I would be able to do, and get those fitted. I modify an intake manifold and get that in place. Finally I give the old thing a coat of paint despite the cold weather.
So that is the Old 59 flatty fully up to date.
Next steps will be to prepare a suitable transmission. Videos are underway on that. Then water pumps. Another video there. Those items will allow the motor to be fitted to the 32.
Once fitted, I can work towards preparing all the ancillaries to make it run.
So plenty to come from Mart's Garage.
I'm having fun doing this build, hopefully you can have fun watching.
Take care and I'll catch you next time.
Cheers!.
Mart.

Mart: Thanks so much for taking the effort and time to make and post such an informative & complete video for a lay person to understand. Especially like the way you explain what and why you are doing something as you go. Appreciate that you don't cut corners and say "good enough", leaving a mistake to remain - like removing that head so you could correct the "misfit" on the studs.

Just wondering where you are able to find the Ford engines and parts you work on AND what is the temperature inside you "garage shop"? Thank you.
