Today I made a quick mockup of some leftovers in my garage. These leftovers will be a start for my chopper. Now Im looking for a any title before 1957 and a Panhead or knucklehead engine. Let me know what you got out there.
Oh yeah, Picked up a 1934 21 bolt flattie and a 1949 panhead frame in my barn this chistmas. I had this flathead with polished oem Ford aluminum heads in my 1932 tudor a couple of years ago.I will use it in my project Pheaton. The panhead frame will be a start for my chopper. I will send it to Tobbe so he can convert it from wishbone to straightleg.
Finally after a long long waiting I got back my panhead engine from restoration. I let my good old friend John aka Duracell from Speed Inc. do the work. By the way, would you let this clown restore your engine?? I did. He have done a fantastic job. Thanks man, I ow you one.
My old friend Ronnie have found him self a new hotrod project. This 5 window with chopped top will soon arrive in sweden. Im sure he knows how to get it back on the road filled with flathead goodies. Damn you man, damn you!! I also want a 1932 5 window.
Had my flathead block for acid dipping here in Gothenburg. It looks brand new after the treatment. Finally I can start build a new hop up engine to my roadster.
This is a old hotrod engine from a 40 Ford De Luxe coupe. built in late 50´s as a hot rod. The car it self came to sweden in early 1980´s and someone stole the heads and intake from it. I traded this engine and everything else from that chassie for a chevy smallblock 307. I think that was a good deal! When I took the engine apart I saw it was a 1940 99T block filled with Jahns pop up pistons , a Weber F 5 cam , johnson adjustable lifters and relieved. Somewhere here in sweden there is a set of useless machined heads exept if you have pop up pistons...I wonder where they are...
Hopefully after the I have taken it to the machine shop for resurfacing I can start rebuild this motor so it will roar this summer. more to come.
