I have a 38 1 ton with a stuck motor. I bought a rebuilt FH on eBay (buyer beware). The seller thought it was a 38, but I doubt it. The end of the crankshaft where the pulley goes on is slightly bigger than my 38, and my distributor would need an extention to reach the end of the cam.
The number on top of the bell housing is K1851 and also has 59A. Is there a definitive way to find out the year of a FH. Thanks in advance!
Before I rebuilt mine I read a few books and drew my own conclusions, mine is a 11A I think, 3 1/16'' bore, 221cu'' . I fitted an 8BA front cover & cam, modified SBC dist. Tex Smiths 'The complete Ford Flathead V8' and 'Ford Flathead V8 builders handbook' by Frank Oddo are good.
