Vintage Ford Model B race engine returns from builder.

Posted by admin December - 4 - 2011 - Sunday

Flashback racing recently took delivery on our freshly rebuilt Ford Model B engine for our vintage depression era Big Car. When our previous engine developed a frost crack and began weeping coolant we knew it was time for a rebuild. A historical note here is that Freeze Plugs for water cooled engines had not been invented yet. After tearing down our engine and having the block repaired, we were able to acquire a vintage factory replacement Model B block which can be identified by the small diamond casting on the front of the block. These blocks are stronger than the original factory castings and the best choice for any high performance applications.

Our rebuilt engine features new pistons, wrist pins, rings, bearings, seals, and gaskets. Our previous valve train, crankshaft and connecting rods was near perfect, they were cleaned up and reinstalled. These images came with the engine and the invoice.
