I have available one unmachined new 5 main T block (with caps machined) for $2,000.00


Also one "semi-machined" Cylinders rough bored, guides lifter bores, all bolt holes and gasket surfaces. Deck needs final machining. Mains and cam bores need final machining. Includes new custom Crower crank and rods. $9,000.00

Here is a picture of one mostly assembled


This is NOT a project for the unskilled amateur!!

Its really amazing how you have gotten this far and this quickly.

Here is the states, it seems there are damn few foundries that can produce a quality casting let alone an entire block.

There is a fellow in California that has been trying to reproduce Model a blocks for years now and still has not been able to produce a good enough castings to pass muster. He has tried several different foundries and much pattern modification with little or no success.

When I try and get something cast it seems most foundries only want to do quick and simple and 100 pieces minimum.

We have had much better luck with Canadian foundries over the years. Les, I salute you for your success and endeavors providing us T guys with a better product.

just sayin'

Dear Brass
I provided my foundry contact info to the guy with the A patterns, but he never contacted them. I spent a whole career designing developing and manufacturing rotating machinery. I developed a lot of contacts and experience

If I am not mistaken, Mike Penserini has a SOHC Fronty SR in a Mercury speedster. That head setup on Les's block/crank combo would be spectacular to say the least.
