we're looking at the table here...hey~! it's got holes for wine and liquor..I think a rip down to the scrap yard could do it...but in SG...most cars are scrapped immeduiately..so where do I get an engine block with 4 pistons....I mean maybe I need 8...coz u have to jam the 4 to support the table...or maybe he just welded it there??

It needs Tang Bands in the cylinder wells and a small valve amplifier where the intake manifold would have gone to drive them.

Try taking a picture down to the scrap yard, and telling them what your thinking about, they should be able to pull something out and set it aside for you.

Once you’ve got the engine block you’ll have to find some way of degreasing it. Steam cleaning with a detergent is a good start to get most of the crud off. You'll likely need to find a mechanic or a body shop to do that part for you.

Sand blasting or a wire brush will get you down to bare metal after that.

The pushrod openings look to be about the right size to mount tube sockets in.
