Found this motor in the sandhills on the Isle of Man


Recommended Posts

A couple of years ago while I was on holiday on the isle of man I came across this trashed flathead in the sand dunes.

Sorry about the arty shots but it was the early days of digital photography and I was experimenting with B&W.

I can see that its a 24 bolt flat head but can you gurus tell me what year its likely to be and if the gear lever is correct for a cabover type layout or just bent from the trashing the motors had?



Best guess over here is 38-42 and probably a boat engine by the bracketry on the front of the block,

Cheers Bern
