Flathead Ford Firing Orders


After my Dodge buddies beat me up on not having any 'MO-PER' firing orders on the site my rat rod buddy decided to give me some crap to. I told him get those leaking Stromberg 97's out of my driveway and how dare he show up in a car with an 8 cylinder Briggs and Stratton engine in it. We laughed and did our usual banter and he said I should add some for his beloved Ford Flathead engine. All kidding aside they are a cool piece of art! Yes I said it.

While I don't know much about them it seems they have some different configurations on the distributor types. Early years look to have odd side facing caps, while the latest start looking more conventional. I do dig the 'crab' distributor caps.

These again are done in the EZ Read format so they can be viewed on your phone or tablet without going blind. A nice thing since we are all getting older and blinder...
