Left and right are universally applied and relate to the driver's left and right when sitting in the vehicle facing forward.

I was restoring a Morris Minor and wanted a new "hockey stick", the curved trim piece that fits each side of the grille. A local MM specialist had a complete grille and front end on the wall as a display and I pointed to the grille and said I wanted a right hand hockey stick (meaning the one on the right side of the grille). The assistant had great pleasure telling me that was a LEFT hockey stick. He was right, and it was a lesson learnt for me.

In the UK we drive on the left and the steering wheel is on the right. Locally we refer to the left or kerb side as "Nearside" and the right as "Offside" usually abbreviated to OS or NS. This is normally encountered when the car goes for the MOT* test and the tester advises you the "NS bottom ball joint" has excessive play. Damn!

*MOT Ministry of Transport. Although the Ministry no longer exists, the annual roadworthyness test is still called the MOT test. Interestingly, pre 1960 vehicles are now exempt from the test, which is nice.

Sorry for the rambling.

Mart.

Hello all,

Thank you Russ, sorry for I did not say anything earlier but the block wall gave me lot of work.

Some progress in the engine block, it was necessary to rebuild the exhaust outlets, now I will start the block front end.

I wish Merry Christmas to all full health

All the best,
Jorge

In Right Hand Drive countries, 'Near Side' is the left, or 'Kerb side', and right is the 'Off Side'

Very nice work Jorge. It would cool if you could progress this block drawing into the different types of Flathead engines... early 21 stud, 59ab, and 8ba.

Hi Everyone, Jorge thank you very much for sharing the results of your hard work, it is just beautiful, amazing and so very educational.

One tip I like to give out is to think in relationship to the flywheel when you work on left/right relationships. If you're facing the flywheel then left and right are logical. (If you're facing the timing gear, put your arms out like you're sleepwalking, then cross your arms in front of you and you have L/R figured out again except it's backwards.) This would work the same for the Near Side/Off Side crowd.

Jorge it sounds as if you're collecting photos. None of these are what you've asked for here, and may not even be the engine you're working on, but here are a bunch of cut-away engine shots I took at Don Garlits' Museum of Drag Racing in Ocala Florida. I was there with my Dad and JM and many others for a 'Barners Bash' a few years ago. The engine is identified as a 1934 Ford but some of the info on the sign is possibly not true.

Again, thanks for sharing, and good luck with your efforts, they're amazing!

Hello VeryTangled thank your for your comments and photos.

It is not what I was looking for I don't need the interior structural or interior of the block, I need a few photos external if possible close up, of the marked areas in my drawings to understand how bend the curves.

Thank you so much to all.
