Joe Abbin, (author of Blown Flathead and 335 HP Flathead Ford V-8 Performance Handbook), has produced this comprehensive new book on flathead Ford engine identification and rebuilding. Whilst there is a wealth of original and independent service manuals and other descriptive material available, the information generally required is not in a single, concise source. Joe Abbin’s Ford & Mercury Flathead V-8 Identification & Rebuilder's Guide sets out to rectify that with over 180 photos and figures, 17 charts and tables and over 50 years of practical, hands-on automotive experience. Stock, or modified, this book will be an essential reference for both engine owners and professional engine builders to help them determine what they have, what they need, and how to achieve a successful flathead rebuild to meet any standard.
