That engine is a side-valve... I used to have one on a hopper-type concrete mixer back in the 60s. But, as most Fords of the era, it was a bugger to get started on a building site. The clutch was operated via a hand lever which behaved a bit like Arkwright's till (Open all hours), if you weren't careful. Oh for the days gone by and to be 40 years younger.... eyes getting glazed and thoughts wandering off into the distance of nostalgia.
