FREE to good home-original L-head engine.

I have the original L-head four cylinder from my '48 CJ2A. It ran great when I pulled it last week, with very little smoke. Holds 30psi at idle. If anyone needs it, its free, but you would have to pick it up in Wichita Kansas. It has the waterpump, fuel pump, 12 volt generator(with cheesy conversion mounts), and is complete from head to oil pan. I dont want to give it to the scrap-man if someone here is needing an original engine.
Making room for the new fuel injected 4.3 chevy.....why cant a simple brake conversion ever stay ONLY a brake conversion.....decided that I better modify the master cylinder...and I might as well change the ignition and carb on the flat-head engine.... Hey, I could use more power, so need to swap a V-6 in...may as well have fuel injection....WHERE WILL IT END!!!! [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Hey ChristianOffroad
Throw this post over to the Willys Tech site, I am sure somebody there could use the motor. And when are you going to post some pics of the flatty?? It sounds like it is coming along just fine.
