    Started out as a Single Port Down Draft at One time from the Looks of it.
    Was adjusted as it aged to keep it a float.

    its a hot rod.. been painted for whatever reason.. no bleed nips on tha cylinders, more than likely a BP, efi front end.. probably matchin' halfs.. may be original from up draft stuff ta block deck.. those parts could possibly jive with clamp serial number (pre '87) but later heads, later ecu.. there is a build date stamped at tha bottom of number 2 on block half, might be on tha flange.. will be 1/8" numbers, m/d/yr. might be hard ta see but its there... kinda behind tha bend in tha timin' arm...Click image for larger version.

    serial on clamp is jus that, a serial on tha clamp.. cle was added.. wasn't being built in tha up draft era... anything stamped on tha welsh plug?.. motor that old with unknown heads 115 (all close) or better would be ok for starters.. jmo.
