    Ralph,
    I am a little computer ignorant. Is there a free program out there for editing short movies together?

    If you have Windows XP or Vista, there's a tool called 'Windows Movie Maker' installed that does pretty well and the price is right-- Free.

    Hi Bookmaker.
    Just found this website today. What a beautiful engine. I have been looking for someone who has made a ford flat head V8 for about 2 years and just ran across you here. Did you make plans for this project? If so would you sell a set? To close, Is the engine done yet?

    Hi Guys,
    Just got my ignition in. Must have a timing problem or something. I will sort it out next week end. All that is left to do is mount the radiator. I will take some pictures and post next week.
    Best regards and Happy New Year to all,
    Roger

    I'm sure all of us are wondering about your "whittling" process on the block. Please give us LOTS of details when you have the chance !

    Hi Bookmaker ,
    Awesome build So Far :bow: :bow: :bow: and i cant wait to see this running . I have 8 of the Full size Flatheads in my shed all 59A motors i hope one day to build a few small scale versions as well . I have one question about your build and that is how did you machine in the siamesed exhaust port for the centre cylinders ?

    Thanks and keep up the most excellent work .

    not trying to hijack this thread but the other day i was looking at this build and thought why not contact ford and see if drawings were available for the flathead.

    well this is a small part of the email explaining the cost of the drawings


    How can I obtain copies of the drawings?
    If you are onsite: You can make paper printouts of parts drawings by using a microfilm reader / printer. The fee is $5 per microfiche.
    If you are offsite: Copies may be obtained in several ways. The Research Center staff can provide a digital scan of a drawing on a CD or a 17” x 22” paper printout. The fee for personal use is $20 per microfilm, and the fee for commercial use is $50 per microfilm. If the engineering or factory part number is not given to us, there is an additional $35 research fee. For a detailed description of our reproduction policy for parts drawings, please visit http://www.thehenryford.org/pdf/parts_policy_fees.pdf.


    as you can see it would get very expensive to get all the drawings.

    i email gm as well and so far have not got a responce.

    any who very very nice work and can't wait to see it run 8)
