Ford Flathead Engines by Tony Thacker and Mike Herman

The book, Ford Flathead Engines by Tony Thacker and Mike Herman is an all you need on step by step rebuilding and changing up the Ford engine. It's nicely illustrated with the steps you'd follow to change or work on the engine. It begins with history about Henry Ford and the V-8 engines he experimented in during 1922. It explains the different types and how it changed over the years. Next, it moves to the information you will want to know about the engine, different items and names for certain parts that may interest the one who is into rebuilding and working on Ford engines.

It's just like a guide, step by step directions and tips with tools to help you design and learn more about the engine. I found it quite different than what I normally read, but it's interesting because I always wondered about the engine and what each part is called or does. However, even if it's only for Ford cars, it still is very interesting and maybe one day I'll be asked a question that refers to the engine and now I'll know what to say and even understand some words used when talking about the engine!

Information About The Authors:
After stints with the legendary So-Cal Speed Shop, the NHRA museum, and setting speed records on the salt flats, Tony wrapped up his professional career by opening an education museum in the Portland area called The World of Speed. However, he is far from being retired and is as busy as ever consulting for a number of clients and works in front of a computer on his first love: some book projects.

Mike Herman works at the family business of H&H Flatheads in La Cresenta, California. He has rebuilt countless flatheads of many different specifications. He has a deep and abiding affinity for this storied power plant. He intimately knows the design, parts, and best products for the flathead. In addition, he has assisted Rod & Custom and Street Rodder magazines with several articles.
