You can buy them now from Summit. It's the Torker II but that's what was in
Larry's pic anyway.

I thought the Torker was only available for the 351C, but clearly it was at
one time available for the 351W too--news to me!

The engine in the photo appears to have De Tomaso Cleveland valve covers,
which would imply Cleveland heads, which would imply a Cleveland.   But the
lack of the oil pressure sender is a dead giveaway that it's a Windsor
  Cleveland heads on a Windsor block maybe?

Or were these flat-top valve covers available for the Windsor too, at one
time?   I don't ever rememer seeing these valve covers on a Windsor.   But
so, then the logical conclusion is that this engine is 100% Windsor, as


Thanks Larry! :>)
