  3. Hello - I'm a Brit working in the USA. I'm looking for an engine I could use in a Bren/Universal carrier. There are a ton of old Ford Flathead V8s out here but i'm a bit confused about which ones I could use in a carrier. Can anyone tell me what the differences are between a regular Ford Flathead V8 and those used in bren carriers? I'm told the later 8BA engine sumps are too deep and to use one a hole has to be cut in the carrier floor. My understanding is the engine I need is a model 81A 239 cu" 3.9L. Can I use a smaller 211 cu"? I think I can, it will be lower power but doe
  4. Thanks guys - a few starting points there. I'll look into them...
