Never seen one. I bet that makes the SOHC engine look "compact".

Looks like a Cosworth with a blower or a copy of a set of old Batten overhead cam heads from Australia. The placard says they are home made.. Nice work

According the the info poster (see orig message above), he made these from scratch. If I read it right, sounds like he welded a couple of heads together after some serious machine shop surgery. Sure says something for homegrown ingenuity! A lot of "workshop engineering" sense too. Just show that you can do anything if you really want to.

And yes, it would be a tighter fit than shoe-horning a cammer into a Cobra!
