    Flat head rebuild, resources?



    I am starting a restoration of a 36 ford pick up.

    It has a 48 mercury flat head.

    I want to have it rebuilt, reliable, decent power.
    Need a competent, reputable builder.

    I have a box around here somewhere with several stromberg 97's, and a offenhauser dual carb intake.

    I would like to install polished edelbrock or ? heads.

    Ideas for resources would be appreciated.

    If you are looking for a top notch rebuild, these guys are one source. Never heard anything but praise from anyone.


    I have a 46 Ford flathead that I wanted freshened up and my local machinist told me not every one was set up to do these, especiallly right. I guess being an old engine and all most machine shops are better suited to doing modern ohv engines.

    Here is the one Gastrick on here had built by H an H..........what's not to like?
