Default Funk Brothers Ford Tractor Conversion

A friend of mine is looking for information on the V8 Conversion kit produced by the Funk Brothers in the 1940's and 50's. He is wondering how hard is it to find a kit and what is in the kit exactly.
Any Info would be appreciated.

I looked at the different kits available. The two that I looked at are on and I first wanted to have the nostalgic value of the Funk conversion until I found out the amount of customized parts you need to make. It was too labor intensive and I don't have that much time to spare. I chose the AwesomeHenry kit for a few dollars more and saved hundreds of hours. He was very helpful when I had questions on assembly and returned my calls and/or emailed me right away. I did have to make a few customizations, but for the most part, everything was ready to go and my tractor is nearly complete (without having to do any welding). One thing to be aware of is that there will be a 5" to 6" lift in the hood, but the kit does come with the adapter for the hood position. It was a fun project -- good luck!
