A flathead early Bronco

I don't post in this subforum..but thought a pic of the '49 8BA I'm putting in a '69 Bronco is something folks might find amusing..or funny..or even sacriligious..

thanks...it will look a lot better when the aluminum heads are on it..and the alternator/power steering setup which is also poilished.

That setup should produce around 4 psi of boost at 4000 RPM...nothing earth shaking and not much at all at normal RPM.

Yes, she'll get an HEI dizzy (Mallory or MSD) but for now that old dual-point/dual-ignition vintage piece is a good placeholder..

That sure is a unique setup you got there, might not be the fastest bronco out there but it will generate some majior attention for sure. Good job
