Hello, like the T, how have you set up your flat head? I'll be building one up for a guy soon and just wondering how people here go about it. I'm looking at a 8BA block 4 inch crank, 3 3/8 bore, offy .400 heads, super mild block relief, isky max 1 cam, twin stromberg navaro manifold, and headers of course. Going to keep it a bottom end motor, but just with a lot more stuff, it's going in a pilot replacing the 21 stud!

I really like your collection, nostalgia rods and early fords are beautiful creations. He wants to run the stock three speed, I beleive there not the toughest boxes on the planet, but saying that, this car certainly won't be abused, he just wants better cruising and climbing power. He is actually being looking around for a grill for his second pilot, it got totalled by a roo, you wouldn't happen to know the where abouts of one???. I'd like to own my own flathead rod at some stage, I'm currently building a Turbo YB cosworth powered Mk2 Escort, theres a thread in 'the garage' if your interested. When this is done I want to build a 34 rod.

grille for a Pilot ????if he finds one I will bare my etc etc :wink: :D :lol:
jokes aside very hard to find .One went in UK a week ago for 300 pounds which with freight etc would owe 1200 bucks and it needed work .When they were new they would self destruct on their own :shock: :roll:

Im running the guts out of my Pilot box in my 39 casing in the T

those turbo cosworths are a great motor couple of guys ran them in sports sedans when i was racing them
we have a Lotus Elan car we will be selling soon they are a great lil motor to
this one
