Default 239 Flathead Rebuild F-1

Got the motor on the stand today, rebuilder did an excellent job,couldn't be happier. Getting all supplies together for assembly, got my cousin(flathead guru) to help guide me. He has lent me all the top rebulders book for all aspects of the rebuild. lot that i've learned. Very interesting engine Henry designed. Got the 3 speed transmission at a vintage trans rebuilders. Had the 11 inch clutch in and changing out to 10 inch. Im at work as we speak getting ready to set flywheel up on machine to drill and tap holes.Just found some NOS flywheel bolts..Coming along!

You might consider having the clutch/flywheel balanced. Everytime I redrill a flywheel for a different size pressure plate I have it balanced. Reason" Pobadys nerfic.
