Engine Rebuilders: Ford Flathead V8
Ford Flathead V8, sometimes called ‘fatty’ from hot-rod days. It was the first 8-cylinder, the first V8. Also, the first V engine to become available. Introduced in 1932, it ran in production until 1953 in Ford cars and trucks.
This design had the camshaft above the crankshaft.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos during the rebuild process. I was lucky to be around with a camera when they were assembling the engine.
When I first posted these, I cropped the size to fit a narrow page, this was before I knew what I was doing on the internet. Not sure if I know more know. 🙂 Hopefully. The images do not get any bigger even if you click on them.
