Default V-8 flathead.

Here's a flashy flathead. A stroker from the factory, [Merc crank], bored out 80 thousandths for 268 cubic inch displacement. With high compression heads, [Navarro], Headman headers, and three deuces, it should go right along. At the very least I should be able to brag to people about ticking along at moderate speeds.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Thank you, guys.
I forgot to say there's an Iski camshaft in it, but I can't remember what model. I'll get on that info, for you.

This one is going into my '36 Ford truck, E-man, to replace the plain-Jane Merc flattie that was growing older by the minute.
