This book is a step-by-step manual on how to take a stock 1949-1953 Ford or Mercury flathead V-8 engine and turn it into a street rod. You'll follow the real-world assembly of three flathead engines from evaluation for purchase to finishing touches. The book has all the clearances, specifications, machining procedures, parts lists, and assembly techniques you'll need. You'll find three different practical examples of hot-rodded flatheads in the book. The first engine buildup is a naturally aspirated motor that is modified for increased performance. The second is a blown motor that procedures even more prodigious horsepower numbers. The third engine is very special: a complete rebuild of a rare and elusive Ardun flathead. This engine's overhead valve conversion kit was designed by Zora Arkus-Duntov, who went on to greater fame as the "father" of the Corvette. This is the only place where you'll find such detailed information on this incredible piece of automotive history. 10 5/8" x 8 1/4", 191 pages, NEW condition.
