Re: 40 Ford convertible panels???

No, matter of a fact I just sold the whole car, too many folks wanted to buy it from me so I put a price on it and it's gone.

I cleaned off the top of a piston and looked closely with a magnifying glass and could not find any size stampings.

Re: Flathead, what do I have here?

Pulled the heads here's the view, did a rough cylinder measurement, inside caliper and tape measure and the bore looks to be a bit under 3 1/4 inch, no cylinder ridge either but it is stuck.

Yes both sides have a lock a few inches below handle, mystery solved it was just froze, more oil and more extreme wiggle pressure eventually freed it up, hard to believe it could lock up that tight.
