Re: Mid week short: Crusty Flatty build progress.

Enjoyed this one - all of them really. I'm hoping to someday rebuild my flatty and I'm learning a lot.

Re: Police verion of the eV-8 engine

The engine I have was given to me by a friend. It’s said to be out of a 53 police special. The heads say EAB, supposed to have a 4” crank. It’s gonna be awhile before I can get in to it.
