Everybodys flathead book Sep 4, 2007
Yea, If'en you be a own'en one of them there Ford(or French) flatheads, then you sure gots to have one of these good old boys books. It has a lot of very useful info and teamed up with a few others, you pretty much will have everything you need to know..I am most happy... (been a flathead owner most of my 50 some mechanical years)
Good, detailed, buildup story Mar 21, 2005
This book details the quest of a flathead ford build up. While most of the info is centered around the later 49-53 engine (which is the one the author is building) there are off-shoots in appropriate places detailing the other differences for those working with the earlier engines. Lots of detailed information about many aspects of the disassembly and build. This and Tex Smith's (by Ron Ceridono) are the two best flathead books available. There is little other published information that these two books do not include.
Building a hot flathead? Dec 19, 2003
Thinking of modifying that old flathead V8? If so, pick up this book, lots of really good hot rod stuff to help that flathead perform bette than before. Good tips on fuel, oil, heads, and all other aspects of building a hot rod flathead. Written by Frank Oddo, of Street Rodder magazine fame, this book is similar to the year long buildup they had a few years ago in Street Rodder. Excellent reference for building a non stock flathead
Ford Flathead V-8 Builder's Handbook 1932-1953 Dec 29, 2000
Book is fully illustrated, shows stock & high performance rebuilds; finding the perfect block, selecting the correct components; manifolds, heads, camshafts, crankshafts, pistons, ignitions, exhaust, boring, stroking, porting & relieving & cooling. Very well put together book.
Ford Flathead Builders Handbook Sep 18, 2000
I believe that the Title of this book should be "Ford Flathead Builders Handbook 1932-1953" not 1932-1958. Jay Smith
