Very nice job! I'm not sure I'll have the funds to do such a nice job on mine, but thanks for sharing the entire process and have fun!

I like the tool you made to hold the adjustment wrenches in place. It looks like it would work well. have a question : Do you have to use a wrench to tighten it up enough to work, or can it be used finger-tight?

wow congrates on a fine job rebuilding your flathead. That orange color looks very similar to the stock color on my 53 engine.

tubman, I didn't need a wrench to tighten up the tool I used for the adjustment wrench. Adjust it just enough to fall in place, used a hooked piece of wire to pull it out for the next one...adjusted as needed.. it worked well
