          Got it running yesterday, still needs full exhaust. I have a set of Spitfire Early A body headers on it, the collectors dump right into both torsion bars, and the Z bar for the clutch.

          My mystery engine holds 65 pounds of oil pressure, which is sweet!!

          Has some duration of an unknown cam inside, though it was too loud for me to even guess what it is.
