The flathead (8BA) is being built for AERA (Automotive Engine Rebuilders Association. I write for their Engine Professional magazine, and I build one custom engine per year for them. The builds are detailed in the magazine (as well as on their website), and the engine is displayed in the AERA booth at the PRI show in December in Indy.
2022 is AERA’s 100th anniversary, so the engine will get quite a bit of attention.
