Default OHV 6 cylinder Continental engines

Looking for T427 and or U501 OHV engines or parts. The U501 is also referred to as a 22R in some manuals. If you know of anyone who has these engines and maybe want to sell my email address is Ctobac6925@yahoo.com. Brockway, Federal, Ward Lafrance and Hyster to name a few used these engines.
Thanks for any help.

If you're looking for piston assemblys, valves, bearings, there may be some commonality with other Cont'l engines that may allow you to broaden your search to other models...
A 1962 or so bearing catalog that lists the U501/U6501 does include SOME 22Rs---"22R 3rd Series (Except Federal Truck) and 33R(Late)"...that catalog has no other listings for any other 22R or33R...
A 1951 bearing catalog that lists the 22R (but not the 501) states "22R Late Model, 35B(Brockway)"...35B is the Brockway version of the 22R per other catalogs...that catalog has no other listing for the 22R.
.I'm assuming Montes has been no help or out of reach...P A Ross Machinery in Dalles, longtime Cont;l dealer, has been mentioned as helpful with obsoletes parossmachinery.com...

Thanks for the reply. I build and pull antique tractors. Massey Harris built several models that used the F-226 flathead 6 cylinder engine. Most Antique pulling clubs now have modified classes which allow you to use a different engine but it must be the same manufacturer and same # of cylinders. The OHV Continentals are quite an upgrade for the Massey's. We have to compete against 501 International Red Diamonds and big Waukeshas that are in Oliver's. I have 2 OHV T427 and one U501. They compete quite well but are very difficult to find. Parts are also scarce. The B-427 flat head and the R-602 OHV engines are no problem to find but the 427 flathead is limited in power and the R-602 is very heavy and large to fit in the Massey tractor frames. The R-427 and U501 cut really nice and make good power.
