    pretty interesting...

     



    Never seen one before. So that's like a flathead with an overhead valve conversion?

    pretty much,
    the Brazilian block has no intake or exhaust ports in it,and the webbing in the block has been beefed up.
    the cylinder heads can be converted to use on V8/60 engines

    Same set up as some French "Simca Vedette" with French casted Ford Flathead 60 and British made Ardun heads?

    Very seldom but can be found in Europe sometimes. Simca was sold to Chrysler later and they did rebuild the engine casting facility with all tools in Brasil.

    Hey Folks,
    I just wanted to show ya,
    The OHV V8-60 that I imported from Brazil is now a running engine! I adapted our shops Diesel "hot-run" stand to the engine,then I had the distributor re-built,some new plugs,wires,cap&rotor and used a 500cfm Holley 2bbl (from a friends Bronco)
    Fires right up on the 1st try,every time.....and sounds great too
    Here is a link to a video of the engine running

    Congratulations on your motor! I would like to have one. Unfortunately I could not pull up your link. What are you going to put it into? I just began reading about these motors a month or two ago, and just keep getting more interested in these motors.
    A couple of questions. How did you go about acquiring it? Are things like valves, guides, pistons etc a problem if they need replacing? How much does the long block weigh?

    That is just entirely to cool.

    How did you manage to get your hands on it and what is it going into?

    That is super neat. Especially, the second video of it running on the test stand; I realized that I was sitting here grinning like a cheshire cat at that one.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys....

    The truth is I REALLY want to keep this beauty,I want to build a 3/4 scale deuce roadster with one of these motors in it...(www.chuppshotrods.com)
    But I planned from the start to aquire these engines and heads,and import them for sale, so I can afford to build a car.
    SO that said, the engine is for sale, and when its sold I will be returning to Brazil to aquire more pieces.
    I have made several good contacts whiile visiting inlaws in Brazil.
    but,I seriously doubt I will find another engine as complete as this one...(hey I had to buy a whole car to get it...)
