I've just pulled the head on my 1922 touring and have cleaned off all of the carbon and cleaned out the head bolt holes with a bottoming tap, ready to tackle the valves next.
I noticed that the cast iron pistons have "Ford" in script followed by "STANDARD" stamped into the tops. Are these indications of original pistons?
The cylinders appear to be in very good condition; no ridges or scoring.
Just curious.

Regards,

Steve Boothroyd

Steve,

"Standard" means that the block has not been bored.

Steve, T blocks don't show a ridge groove as other engines because the top ring comes to the top of the bore. keith b
