I may need to have my 5/80 2F engine rebuilt. I would appreciate your recommendations.
So you'd have to find a later head to run the 'flat' top Pistons? Is everything else essentially the same?
So, for clarity, @Rice uses a proprietary process where he takes two F series blocks, machines off the two bad cylinders on each, grinds them into a 30 degree V shape, and welds them together in a new, more shapely configuration. He then precision machines a new crankshaft, camshaft, and other internal components, all to exacting tolerances. He adds a new intake system, and can plumb for either carb, or fuel injection.
The engine is slightly wider, but a lot shorter, allowing for a larger radiator, and additional accesories, like power steering, and Air Conditioning.
THe exhaust system is reworked to accommodate the new block configuration.
All in all, a great way to triple or quadruple the output of the engine.
So tell me about this 74 F.5 head
