Here's a Anzani A I just finished restoring.

Very "sano" (sanitary) work, as the old hot rodders sometimes said. Who raced the engine, if you know? It wouldn't have been a Northwest guy. Or at least everyone I remember had the megaphones diagonally braced to a little crossbar bolted across the center of the cylinder head. I believe that feature was the invention of Lee Sutter, in the very early Sixties. Have you run the engine? On a boat? with that Merc ignition, at least you can get on plane without fouling plugs! Is that an early Harrison towerhousing? Looks like an original Anzani lower unit. Most the Anzanis I saw raced in the NW in the Sixties were a collection of parts from here and there, as yours is to some extent.

Thanks for the photos, Bob.
