Metalspraying is used in the heavy industri to repair cracked and worn out big expensive parts
I have seen heads with big holes in the combustion cambers built up that held up for a long time

Heo, the race was in Denmark, race on the beach. kinda like the race of gentlemen over in the U.S.

Ok i have heard about that race. But i live 1000+ miles from Denmark so i have not atended that
yet but i have thought about it. Mother in law lives close to Denmark so when we visit her we sometimes
go to denmark

Awwww you guys missed me, it makes me all warm and fussy inside in the wintercold :D

Cristmas was so so, got a real mancold on the 23d and the whole december was a disaster
Wife still in wheelchair (so i have to work as the housewife ::)) so to cheer her up a bit i
bought her a robe/neglige and high heels with a lot of pink fluffy marabou feathers for
christmas present.  The price was :o :o :o but hey sometimes you can spend......
And then i was to drill for electric wires for the new bedroom im building KABOOOM
the whole house went dark :o. On a wall thats about 20x20 feet i manage to hit a one inch
wire that feeds the whole house. A couple of hundred dollars to the electrician and power was back
Beacuse stepson who is electrician was in bed with covid ::). then dicovered the washing machine
was dead,,,,,when i hit the feedwire i sent 400 volts to ground and shorted out the washingmachine
and fried something inside it :(
Then i had to take the dog to the vetenerian. 1000 dollar and 10 pulled teats later she was fixed....strange
though she had hanging ears, but after they pulled the tooths the ears stand up ??? Then the microwave owen
gave up , then i got a speeding ticket 500-750 dollars and the drivers licens hanging loose :( :(
The engine heater on the tractor gave upp, wife glasses broke, wifes phone broke......and there is probably more
that i have forgotten

Possitive though i became stepgrandpa a couple of months ago. Stepson got a healty boy but unfortunatly he got
covid to. But he is well and healty again. And wife got an aircast that she can remove and start to train to walk again
I dissasembled the washingmachine found a fried component. Some kind of thermorelay that probably should save
the machine from current peaks but this one was to much. I bypassed it and the machine works again so there i
compensated for the speeding ticket :P ;) And then my friend with the Royal Enfield had a spare washingmachine that
he gave me. so now i have two ???

One year since dad died, I got a film from....A film maker wanted to do some kind of dokumentary about my dad around 1990. He filmed a lot
in the shop and around here and my first marriage. But at the party after church we had open bar and the camera man got so drunk so when
he filmed he turned the camera of and the other way around ;D. Soon after, the filmaker died and the documentary never happened
 this is some sequences they have found and sent me a link
First its one of our staches in the forrest , then its dad with the tractor and some unknown people, our finnish spits Max
17 years old here, the 27 roadster and some motorcycles some event where my mothers plymouth coupe is filmed. she had it as a daily driver for
 about 10 years, then , its some sequence from the shop where im repairing a 59 Caddilac covertible, my first wedding with the 27 out of gas :-[

It is said to be the 59 in this video.

My 390 is as budget as you get.  Stock original 68 2bbl cast pistons, stock heads, mild "non blower cam"(.53 lift).  Did put stud kit in it too and bottom.  Rebushed the rods, double keyed the crank for no balancer(hub only).

22 yrs of playing with it.  5# boost on cold evening.  Stupid fast?  No.  Need better parts?  Absolutely.  Love to put good parts in it and turn it up but BFG radials don't put up with it now.  Oh, its a 4 spd with 3.89 gears.  Runs 3000 rpm at 65 mph and gets 10 mpg with dual 660 holleys.
I love it, it made me smile

Seen that a few days ago, and the bottle literally exploded. Anyone who survived that is lucky! I cringe when I see videos of people using a propane torch to warm them up to increase the pressure in them. They have heated blankets for that purpose.

Here's a short video of a small extinguisher that gets dropped and knocks the valve off. Now imagine a bottle twice that size releasing all its pressure in a fraction of a second. Or worse, an Oxy or Acty bottle.

 ;D ;D ;D that video made me laugh so much ;D ;D ;D
The extinguisher took of  looks to be in Russia im not surpriced

If the breakerplate and shaft is the same as a points distributor
you may be able to convert it to duraspark parts

I remember when the halogen lights came out. Friends dad had a gas station
with a repairshop. He installed a lot of halogen lights, we took a bunch of the
old lights and installed on our "car", built out of a salmon crate with rearwheels
from wheelbarrows and frontwheels from a lawnmower. Yes big and littles ;D.
Down from my house is a long straight road with no streetlights. we pushed the car
down there and waited untill there came a car, then we flicked the switch and lit up all
lights and run and hide 2 7 inch 2 5 3/4 inch and 4 foglights on the rear wing ;D ;D ;D
most cars stoped with screatcing tires ;D ;D ;D

Ford says 18 1/4" for a 302. But it is overall width.

Hate to disappoint you, and maybe I'm wrong, but those exhaust crossover manifolds are indicative of 272, or regular 292 engines.  A HD truck engine would most likely have had ram's horn exhaust manifolds, governer carb, large stem sodium exhaust valves, etc.  The C2TE blocks were some of the best 292 blocks cast.  Hopefully your engine owner used anti-freeze and the block cylinder liners are still thick.  Joe-JDC
I have a 292 i myself picked from a F600 had those crossover manifolds, and forged crank
