blown flathead

this morning I went to see my machinist at his shop, hadn't been over there in a while, he specializes in flatheads, and there sat his new setup on a flathead, he's making the blowers with 2 97's on top, he makes all the pulles etc for the drive and also told me he has taken over all the Navaro flatheat stuff..I will be returning in a few days and will take some pictures if anyone is interested

Even though I'll never own a blown flathead I've never seen one either. I'd love to see the pictures...

I don't know much about flatheads, but the setup was impressive to me, it will be a few days before I get back over to pick up my stuff and will take some pics, maybe someone here can help me post them, I have problems posting pics

Here is a blown, blown flathead on ebay. Nasty how many pieces the internals are in.
