Ol Skool Rodz Build your own flathead roadster just as it would have been built in the 1950s! Using a 1929 Ford Model A, this guide follows its construction from start to fantastic finish. Bishop begins with a wealth of expert advice on planning your project, finding traditional parts, and acquiring the tools, time, space, and services needed. From frame, front suspension and steering, to brakes, engine and transmission, Bishops expert approach is fully illustrated with specially commissioned photos and line drawings. Ford Flathead Engines How To Rebuild & Modify Although not the first V-8 engine ever produced, Henry Fords side-valve V-8, launched in 1932, certainly qualified as the first mass-produced V-8 sold to the public. Over time, however, the Flattie became the go-to powerplant for a whole generation of new hobbyists who were called hot rodders. In Ford Flathead Engines: How to Rebuild & Modify, veteran author Tony Thacker and flathead guru of H&H Flatheads, Mike Herman, take you step-by-step through rebuilding a vintage flathead. One of the most important steps is to actually find a good, usable core; many have been sitting for a very long time and the engine design is prone to cracking. Running changes are also an important consideration when selecting a core, and include cooling system, ignition, and transmission mount. After you have selected a core, Thacker and Herman take you through the entire process of a rebuild, including teardown, parts inspection, machine shop processes, replacement part selection, re-assembly, start up, and break-in. Also covered is a unique performance build completed at the H&H shop for legendary race car team manager and all-around enthusiast Ray Evernham. It all adds up to more than 500 color photos and insider tips on building what could be called the most iconic engine ever built, the Ford flathead V-8. This book covers the rebuilding process in over 500 step-by-step photos Veteran author Thacker and Flathead expert Herman bring unique insight and expertise to this book Finally, here is a full-color edition covering all the new technology and techniques
