Larry - Just realized I never heard back from you. Not sure if you're still looking for stuff or have it all arranged already. I was out of town until yesterday, so if you need anything - let me know.

Thanks Roger, I've been so busy trying to get the grade in front of the new garage finished to pour concrete soon. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you and yep I still want the parts. I will try and call sometime this week if that works. Larry

Truck V8

They finished checking my flathead block for cracks and the other parts were checked over and cleaned. I went and looked at the block and it had at least 10 big cracks. They felt bad about such horrible news that they only charged me a small amount to clean all the parts.
Now, I need another 48-53 Ford Flathead block. If anyone knows of one or sees one for sale that looks "safe" for rebuild let me know. Or, another full engine will work. Thanks Larry

What about the 289? Wasn't that going in first?

Very probable that the 289 will go in this truck. But I was still going to rebuild the flathead to either use in my next truck to sell or the next one that I can keep. It is just very expensive to rebuild a flathead so it will be a lot longer process.
If I can find a donor block or engine I can start getting the machine work done, then as money becomes available I can buy parts. Larry
