jimmy_stikx Sorry for the late reply, busy week at work. I am looking for a bolt on per-se, but looking more for any homemade setups any one may have come across or made themselves.

As for the slant-six, if I got my hands on would, it would probably end up in another project that I'm concocting in my mine

joe_padavano And again, I agree that it is certainly possible to adapt later model heads with work. I believe that the O.P. is asking about a bolt-on OHV conversion for the Chrysler flathead six. Of course, we have yet to hear back from the O.P., so I'll stop trying to be a mindreader and let him chime in.

engineering dimensions ?

So we still don't know if the aust Hemi head would fit or with some modifications would work. Time to try to get some head gaskets and see if the bores and bolt holes line up. The guy that had the Stude head on his T use a 1/2 aluminum plate with studs for the head and holes to bolt to the T block. My old neighbor that had the Boss head on his iron duke changed and started sawing small block chevies in half to make V 4's for his circle track cars. Just how much work do you want to do? Find an import Hemi saw it in half, then weld the head back together ?

There is a forum for in line engines I've never searched there, We have in the car some day collection 35 olds in line6 won't turn over,.. 48, nash wont turn over, 41 chevy truck head off, and a spare 60's ford 6 if you google you might find something,for in the 20's it was popular to put an olds or chevy ohv on a model T ford, I have seen a stude V 8 head on a model T, a neighbor ran a Ford Boss 302 head in his iron duke Gm 4 , the auto companies didn't change major dimensions during redesigns. The factory machinery for building a ford Y block 239-312 was refurbished to build SBF 221-351... 292 forged truck cranks can have some minor work done to fit a small block... the old lincoln machinery was updated for Fe engines Etc etc. The Torque plate to power hone an engine block fits several different makes I have no idea if a slant 6 has major dimensions the same as the old flatheads.
