Greetings, Wow! A veritable flood of information from one simple inquiry!
Thanks to Rich, Jeff (ha ha) and Todd for the promt responses. It seems that
a couple of grand ain't to shabby for parts & labor to rebuild the
flathead...I am learning. The Kanter Co. has several prices that are the
best to date; I have ordered their catalog.
The block goes in to the shop today for slow-cook and magnaflux. I will
keep you all informed and no doubt be back with more basic questions. Thanks
again from Fairbanks.... Tony

It cost me about $2,000.00 and I furnished most of the new parts. I did not
skimp on the parts, I don't plan on doing it again, seeing that I only put 50
miles a week on the truck. Their are many good sources for standard parts and
as I did 50's style hot rod equipment. I had a lot of fun doing it. I am glad
I didn't drop in a late model FORD engine. I get more conversation from
people getting a kick out of " The Good Old Days"

Good Luck

Just had my 55 V232 flathead rebuilt this summer
in LA for $2,200, plus another $600 in fine adjustments
over the next month after rebuilding. For what it's worth.
