That appears to be a McDowell single overhead setup.

Are you sure its a T? I don't see anything that looks T-ish.

I questioned that too. McDowell seems to have built more Model A conversions. However, the generator casting appears to be Model T.

Could be T- It was common on some conversions to block off the drivers side cylinder walls to cool the cylinders by brazing the block up on that side for a cover. Note the water manifold over the intake and exhaust ports and the extra bolts around the valve chamber cover to improve sealing, as the valve chamber is now a water jacket- valve lifter holes are plugged because there are no lifters in the block on an OHC engine. The side drive with water pump is typical Frontenac style made for a T block. Given the height of the right front corner of the block where it is showing, it's too short to be an A or B block, so my guess it is indeed a T block. Too bad we can't see the other side.
