flathead 337

something that i meant to throw in a while back that i didn't think about is that the engine that is in question or the one that i have came out of a lincoln 1950 model so i guess that at some point in time it was at least an option. I have noticed that trying to rebuild this engine though presents some problem any help is greatly appreciated. Trying to find someone around this area in particular to work on this engine is like trying to find the proverbial needle in the hay stack and if you do find someone that may say they will tackle this engine they want your left arm as a downpayment and then as final payment they would like to get your right leg. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated as to where to find someone in the shreveport bossier louisiana area. I called around for grins and giggles to price rebuilding it and the cheapest i got was 4800-5600 to rebuild it and remember that was the low end. i then thought well geeez i will do it myself then i tried to find the parts and that was an even bigger task. then i thought well i will price a different engine and so i priced a 383 stroker that would be pushing between 415-430 horses and to my surprise i found out that i should have just gone with that. i can have the engine built turn key for a fraction af the price of rebuilding the flathead so if anyone has an suggestions or tips or can rebuild it shout at me because i am looking to try and get this done so that i may be able to enjoy the car before i start drawing my social security.

Not to drag this up from TOO far in the past, but try http://www.kanter.com/ as they should have rebuild kits for the 337. Another place to try is Tractor Supply as this engine - I beleive - may have been used on farm equipment so they might have parts for it as well. THey are a good flathead ford plant parts place, oddly enough.
