"The other great selling point of the exhaust face mount is that
the motor can be built supported by it."

Are you inferring it can't be built on a conventional bell housing mount?

296 It looks like you cut the valve to pull the engine appart. What did you use?
Thanks, Mike

Ok, forgetting the bellhousing strength and hitting the valve debate, well done on getting that lot out of the block.

It's amazing how you can rescue a block from a seemingly scrap motor. It's no easy task getting those out of there, I know, I've done it a couple of times.

Mart.

1932 V8...To cut the valves and springs up I used an angle grinder and a .040 cutoff wheel.

Thanks, Mike
Since as usual they wouldn’t pull down w the valve guide bar.
I decided to push and pry the valves up one at a time - stick a wedge under the stem to hold it up - cut the heads off w a cut off wheel.
Then pushed um all back down and cut the stems w the torch.
The 5/8 deep socket and a hammer pushed the guides w stem remnant down and out.

Cutting twice is what the hate comments about….takes up half the day

8ba … I simply pry up - pop off the keepers - pull the valve - drive the guides down.

As for the stand issue
Don’t get me wrong here … im not 100 percent convinced it’s a real problem but believe me I don’t take any chances and lean on it.
I keep a pease of tubing / leg under the nose of it when I am leaning on it.

Additionally
I have all the proper side attachments and stuff and am well aware of most every flathead related tool ever made.
The problem is I have more than one motor on stands right now and I didn’t feel like putting a freshly built and painted one on the ground.
On top of that the picker is stuck in front of a car that dont move right now.

the exhaust valves have to be melted or use a plasma cutter,stock intakes will cut with a torch,helps to clean sludge out too
