Whatever it is, it will get a trusty powerplant...

I'm pretty certain that's the Ford Model A engine and trans from the old Revell 1931 Woody (and many derivatives) kit.

The same engine was used from 1928 through 1931 and an upgraded but identical appearing engine from '32 through '34.

This engine was used in Ford cars and light trucks.

NOTE: Those orange air filters, or whatever they are, don't belong there. The real engine looks like this...

Yes, it is a model A engine from the 1931 tudor, and I am using the OHV conversion so the valve covers do belong there.... We have a couple of 1:1 Model A Fords so I know very well what the stock engine does look like.....

But the answer this time is not really that easy....

OK...I didn't recognize the Riley rocker covers from that angle...and painted orange. Every real Riley OHV conversion I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot) has had polished rocker covers, as they're cast aluminum.   :D

Yes, of course. Though this whole project should bee seen more as art than any effort to duplicate something that has ever existed or should even possibly exist....I am not sure that I even know where this is leading myself to be honest, but well....

Yep, I had mistook those as errantly placed air cleaners even after I tried to alter the contrast of the photos. I had also forgotten that I'd bookmarked this MCM thread by Travis Medford for future reference to use in my own '31 Ford project. And I just found this other MCM one by Tom King on the Riley heads.
