The Mystery Box

Today  it finally arrived!

 The monent of truth... open the Mystery box....what can it be inside.
 Its a flathead V8! a 59L   factory relieved 100 hp engine for my roadster!

 268 Cui flathead balanced , bored 0,125 over  with 1500 miles on it since rebuilt. 
 Another moment of truth... what the hell is under the Offenhauser heads.
Decked block and sleeved cylinders.  adjustable lifters ,LZ springs stainless valves.
 Looks like its runs as good as a flathead should!
It was a good deal!  And not even pricy to fly home to sweden from Alabama.
took 4 days to get it here.

It seems like I can get one of my cars running pretty soon...

more to come..

  1. Tjena,
    Mitt namn är Magnus. Har följt din blogg bra länge.
    Har nydligen köpt min första sidåtta 59ab.
    Och har lite frågor skulle jag antingen kunna få din mejladress eller att du mejlar mig.

    Mvh Magnus
