This is a follow-up and companion to the successful How to Build a Flathead Ford V-8. This new edition describes the build-up of a 1946-1948 model 59 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor, a blown French flathead engine, and a blown Ardun engine-designed for street use. Many French flathead engines have been purchased by flathead lovers in the United States. There is a strong demand for those engine blocks, and the purchasers are desperate for any build-up information. The popularity of the Ardun is amazing, and this second volume contains a load of new information about the Ardun, as well as information and photographs of the lastest flathead goodies, such as crankshafts, connecting rods, intake manifolds, and cylinder heads.
