Nils, check ebay...just saw a UL engine in need of a rebuild, or wait for Anders to get his production going on NEW and improved engines.

Welcome Nils. Have you given up the Flat Track project notion? Pa

Thanks guys for all the info.What can I expect for hp from a Flathead 74ci-80. I'm thinking... mild cams,bigger valves,carb etc etc.Does anyone make a stroker kit for the flathead and what about flow relieving ?
I'm new to all this so any info would be great.Thanks again

Hey Nils,

A stocker will deliver approx. 28-30 Hp on the rear wheel.
Cams are hard to get so the easy way to get some more power would be to raise the CR and relieve the cylinders. Increase of the stroke is always a good way to more power.
You can get stroker wheels from S&S or T&O.
Depending on the stroke, the pistons might be a problem to find.
A modern carb will definitely help on the way.

Nils, Don't think anybody has a kit, have to do it yourself (or have someone do it), take a look in the archives here for more info, also try the "Panic papers" for more really good stuff...Victory Library for info and parts.
You might want to check the thread here about the "Flatboy" might be to your liking.

Nils

Are you north or south of boston?

I'm south of Boston and might be able to get you to a one or two people, or might I be able to help a bit. Best thing you can do would be to get Panics books on Flatheads www.victorylibrary.com. There are not to many people left in the area that can do compitant work on the old motors. The ones I know can do the standard rebuild work but not much more. Most of the other mods you might have to do for yourself.

I guess I used bad choice in words CHEAP PROJECT haha. Everytime I built a hot rod,I would come up with a $ number and it would always be double or triple.
