Typo. Possibly 1937? It seems to be the 60 HP flathead.
Others will know more.
That is a '46 -'48 Ford flathead V8, and well worth the asking price.
This should be a wake up call to all of us!! Identify the “inventory “ and dispose of the “surplus projects “. I’ve been getting rid of a car a year for the last 5 years and not replacing them
As Darryl said, '46-'48 100 hp, 239 cu.in.
That's a good way to break the bellhousing off on a flathead!
OT Jim, how the heck do we support these on a stand?
I have two #59 engines here and that is a lot of weight on those bolts.
Shoot, I'm pretty tall yet working on the one in a 2 Ton truck frame is nigh-on impossible! ;-)
Remove the hood and sit on the fender... :-)
Duey, mount the flathead on the side where an exhaust manifold bolts on, using a 45 degree angled plate.
To save your back somewhat when working on the 2 tonner, remove the wheels and get that thing down low. Certainly helps. You've still got those big fat fenders to clean over, but at a more comfortable height.
Hehe. Never thought of that Brian!
I’ve known machinists that have mounted dozens of ford and mercury V8 engines ‘32 through ‘48 with the bellhousing bolts and never broke one. I have personally done about ten that way and I have never heard of one that broke, although I prefer the side mount bracket to hold the engine.
Its so simple; just cut a V notch in a 2x4
and suport the front cramk UP a little and with
a little grease in the V you still can turn the
crank over easy....I think the 1927 is a typo.
Actually that engine came out sometime in 1945 thru
48. 1948 F series got the new 8RT engine but
48 cars still has the 100hp 59A.......
I use a bracket that bolts where the exhaust manifold goes. Works very well and not danger of breaking anything.
