Never mind I found them in your pics....

The engine is based on a production '40 Merc but was built by Sam Hanks who replicated a Miller Ford Indy engine. It features a 180-degree Miller crank, Miller heads with custom chambers to match the Miller flat top pistons, a 4X2 intake manifold, a Zephyr dual coil ignition by Harmon/Collins and of course a set of Belond W headers and extensions
