When the valve seats were ground, did they use a grinding pilot that fit in the block or did they pilot off the guide. Have you used a basic vacuum gauge to see if it had a steady reading?Were the valve springs checked? L head engine the springs lose tension .They get a lot of heat since 1948. Throttle shaft tight in the carb?

Which ever method the Ford factory used. To the best of my knowledge the engine is factory original.
It's sat in storage for the past 25or 30 years. Before that it belonged to a weekend farmer. Not much running at all on this engine.

Hi Bob, My mistake, I thought the engine had been rebuilt. I am a retired engine machine shop,magneto & carb rebuilder. I would say it runs good for setting that long. Put it on a plow or disc will tell you alot about it. Earl
