Few new engines in automotive history have been as quickly embraced by performance-minded gearheads as was Ford’s V-8 in 1932. Deuce roadsters were racing–and winning–almost as soon as their fenders could be unbolted. When the new L-head version was released motorists of nearly all stripes came to embrace the affordable engine that gave Ford cars performance to equal cars costing several times as much. Ford’s vision–and gamble–paid off handsomely and set Ford apart from his competitors. More than two decades would pass–a veritable eon in the automobile industry–before another engine would offer the excitement generated by Henry Ford’s beloved flathead V-8. This is the ultimate resource for the Ford flathead V-8 engine. It guides readers through everything from engine architecture to selecting the right engine for the right project, building and rebuilding the engine, and buying a crate engine. Whether you’re looking to hot-rod or restore your flathead, this book is a required addition to your workbench.

As Ford’s follow-up to the famous flathead, the Y-block was Ford’s first overhead-valve V-8 and it established an impressive high-performance legacy, winning many races in NASCAR and setting records at the Bonneville Salt Flats. This venerable Ford engine, which powers classic Thunderbirds, Crown Victorias, Edsels, and other cars, is enjoying a performance renaissance. Many aftermarket parts, including heads, can turn a sedate Y-block into a powerhouse. The engine earned its name from its deep-skirt block design that looked like a “Y.” This stout engine was installed in millions of Ford cars from 1954 to 1962 and Ford trucks from 1952 to 1964. Author and Ford tech expert Charles Morris explains each critical aspect of rebuilding a stock 239-, 256-, 272-, 292-, and 312-ci Y-block and building a modified Y-block. He shows you how to identify components and conduct a thorough inspection so you select a sound block, heads, intake, and other components. He explains the specifics for obtaining high-quality machining work and verifying clearances. In addition, he delves into the intricacies of each step of the assembly process so you can rebuild a strong-running and reliable engine. Most important, Morris details the steps to effectively remedy the Y-block oiling problems. This is the book Ford Y-block owners and fans have been waiting for. It’s an indispensible guide for performing a professional-caliber rebuild and buildup of the Y-block.

Although not the first V-8 engine ever produced, Henry Ford's side-valve V-8, launched in 1932, certainly qualified as the first mass-produced V-8 sold to the public. Because of Henry Ford's stubbornness, the first versions were less than ideal. The technology was in its infancy and cost-cutting measures limited the output and reliability of the early models. Over time, however, the "Flattie" became the go-to powerplant for a whole generation of new hobbyists who were called "hot rodders." The engine maintained its position in the hobby well into the 1950s, even when more modern overhead-valve designs started coming out of Detroit. It's hard to overstate the impact that this simple little engine had on a whole generation of enthusiasts. Even today, people choose a flathead for period-correct builds over far more powerful options. The style and sound of a modified flathead is an iconic part of American history. In Ford Flathead Engines: How to Rebuild & Modify, veteran author Tony Thacker and flathead guru of H&H Flatheads, Mike Herman, take you step-by-step through rebuilding a vintage flathead. One of the most important steps is to actually find a good, usable core; many have been sitting for a very long time and the engine design is prone to cracking. Running changes are also an important consideration when selecting a core, and include cooling system, ignition, and transmission mount. After you have selected a core, Thacker and Herman take you through the entire process of a rebuild, including teardown, parts inspection, machine shop processes, replacement part selection, re-assembly, start up, and break-in. Also covered is a unique performance build completed at the H&H shop for legendary race car team manager and all-around enthusiast Ray Evernham. It all adds up to more than 500 color photos and insider tips on building what could be called the most iconic engine ever built, the Ford flathead V-8.
