It's a late Paxton SN (polished).
I think the whole engine is an Avanti. At least it has all the Avanti goodies on it.
The a/c mount and alt mount are one of the reasons it is here.
Let's just say it was not an ideal mount setup.

BTW... Your heads are back from the CNC shop. Prep work to commence soon!

Looks like you'll have to do some engineering to move those pieces around in the amount of room you have to work with. Thanks on the heads, let me know what you'll need from me. Bill

Necroposting......

Here's a later pic of John Sartorius's engine after re-doing the a/c mount, alt mount, and thermostat housing position.
Now everything is adjustable, packaged better, and doesn't hit anything...
