John’s 1953 Panhead motor Start-Up

This motor came to us a couple of years ago and the customer, who is from Alaska, wanted to rebuild just the lower-end.  After completing the lower-end, the customer took it home and installed the heads.  Several years later, after completing the motor, he called to request that we do a motor start-up on our motor run stand.  He was happy that it went well.

 

Highway Classics’ 1940 Flathead

This 1940 Flathead UL motor used to belong to a good friend of ours, Robert Dail.  He purchased it in 1970.  We originally re-built the engine in 1971.  It changed hands a few times and we were able to buy it back and are now rebuilding it again 40+ years later.  Here are some photos of the finished motor and a video of the initial start-up on our run-stand.
