I do know at Moab last time I had it so wrapped up that it flexed the radiator enough to granade the electric fan, It was the entrance to Upper Heldarado at area BFE. as far as the seat situation I love it, I'm 6'4" so I can see over the windsheild fine, shorter people not so much, haha, I just can't stand the tradidtional style flatfender cages with the raised up seats. But Low and stable is deffinatly the words I would use to describe it. Never really felt like its been too tippy even in some pretty messed up spots.

Alright another bit of updates, Current updates too! so I think thats a first. Picked Up some more old Iron a few weeks back... kinda a take one take them all kind of thing.


A freind of mine had a buddy that was trying to get rid of, what he said was a little flathead stuff..... What I ended up with was 6 engines in various states of dissrepair and about a pickupbed and a half of other odds and ends.
So out of the deal I got one 1938-39 24 stud 221, thats the green one with the plug wires.

The bare block is either a 40 or early 41 239 99T block, I guess they are sought after by hotrodders? along with that block I received a mercury crankshaft which is a wopping 4" stroke to make it a 255CI

So my folks were like absolutely NO WAY! which meant I had to devise a way to hide 2000lbs of old Iron. So I rigged up the jeep as a pickup for the day.

Little Road tripping to the abondoned barn down by the river... had to relieve the Ferguson of its home for a bit...

Tight ceilings and a very slow chain hoist made for some good times.
Mangaged to get most of the mess down below before the parents yelled at me too much, I guess my stepdad was down in So-cal for the leduc swapmeet and got a pretty nast call from my mom(not too nasty), asking what all the crap i was dragging home was. 2 pickupbeds full!

The Moonshiners 4x4 swapmeet was last weekend and leave it to be to find the oddball non-offroad stuff, hidding behind a stack of old quadrapukes and some blown out rancho 9000's was this little gem.


Half hour of BS'ing with the old timer who owned it and 50$ later it was safely in the back of the truck. The blower is of of a 60's detroit 6v53 so a little more oddball then the 4-71's or 6-71's commonly used, but more or less the same thing.


Looks right at home, which is good becuase that's where it is going... and then its going in the jeep.




Nobody makes a flathead intake for these blowers so I drew just a simple tubuller style one that should work great. Trying to keep it low Pro so the blower doesn't stick out of the hood, unfortunatly the carbureters will, but I guess in hot rod fashion that might be pretty cool.

I plan on putting the 38' in the jeep soon, and getting it running with the stocker for the time being, I took that 99T block and crank in to get them magnafluxxed and checked out. When I can afford it I will have that block machined and build it into a mild racestyle motor with aluminum heads and all the cool flathead bits that go with it. The stock motor will give me about 90hp and 150ft/lbs so same power as the 2.3l just a little more torque... and half the RPM's. which means I need to drop some cash on an 0.D. Should be a fun Project though, and nothing beats the sound of a flatmotor. Flathead in a flatfender, sounds right to me!

Thanks guys! havn't been able to touch it yet to get the motor swapped over, but I did pull it out of the barn on sunday to get the tractor unstuck... don't drive into a marsh after waiting 3 weeks for it to stop raining makes for a gross situtaion, no pictures unfortunatly. Been working with Cornfed to get our freinds Rods CJ/YJ/MB2a7 done.

Putting coilovers on this already pretty cool jeep

Sitting at full bump 2.5 C/O all around with a 2" hydro bump per corner. Neat Project should up and going for a late season snow run at the end of this month. hopefully sometime after that I'll have a chance to get into the shop for a little bit to get my motor swapped out.

In other news the Portland Swapmeet was this weekend. and I found some goodies for the flatmotor

Set of 8.5 Compression ratio heads, johnson adjustable lifters, a two barrel, and a small medusa head took the day. Don't think I metioned it already but I got ahold of a set of 12bolt H1 wheels, I plan to recenter (with the same offset) to the Bud pattern and run a set of 36x12.50 tsl's gonna miss the 900-16's but they're getting near the end of there life and something with a bit more height is going to be nice with the low rpm's of the flathead.

Been a little while, Typical, school getting in the way of projects haha. Anyways Ive had the ole' heep out a couple times this summer, came off a dune pretty hard and tacoed a front spring, which resulted in a blown up driveline.

...becuase who's done this before, I hate presses...

Aside from that and a bent frame it was my flathead delivery vehicle in portland for a while, roomates love having a flatmotor in the closet at school.



other than that went to the dunes again last weekend and snagged a couple picks of me and Cornfed's buggy. as usuall though having too much fun and didn't have the camera out nearly enough.



I don't have any pics of the willys in that canyon, but i was driving it on its side, and there is a waterfall half way up that decided to granade my the driveline yoke... passenger peer pressure on that one haha. No one made it out of there that that time.

well the willy's is quietly snoozing in its barn till, next time, hopefully sooner than later

Like the build. Keep us updated with more pics when you do the motor swap. Interested to see how it turns out.

How much wider is the flat head v8 vs something like a chevy pushrod v8?
