FILLING A VOID
Today and in the future, original Model A engines will continue to be rebuilt, and many will continue to be modified. This new design is intended to fill a void in the Model A hobby. If it goes into production, builders of hot-rodded engines will have a better foundation from which to start, and restorers wanting to drive their car hard can preserve their original engine by removing it and storing it for later use. If this engine goes into production, skilled restorers will be able to assemble their own engine and rebuilders will be able to offer their customers a product with a guarantee without worry from comebacks. The price of good used original cylinder blocks and crankshafts will hopefully drop because new ones are available. And hopefully, parts that have been hoarded for years will become available for sale at reasonable prices.
