Yes, the block of my 3.6 litre flathead V8 cracked (seized water pump) and I'm sure it's been united with a boat.

The 4.2 French flathead that replaced it in my 1949 Allard was made of sterner stuff. Its owner reports 120 bhp with the Edelbrock headers, Offenhauser twin inlet and two Strombergs!
De-gassing progress:

Leica M2, Nikon D700, Bronica RF645, Leica CL, Summicron 40mm, Rolleicord Va, Hasselblad 500 CM Zeiss Planar, Leica 50mm Summicron V3, Hasselblad PME51 metered prism, Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 534/16 & Ensign 820 Special - all gone.
