"Billet" Sporty Pump?

Just picked up a '72 up sporty pump that appears to have been machined from a solid block of Aluminum. No casting marks anywhere. Gears appear to be standard for the era. Anybody have any clues what gives? Was it factory or custom?

Dick, yep it's on my K. The only problem i have is breather problems. Gotta find the time to take the engine out and re-time the breather (PIA). Later breathers timed different than -52 ones. Engine seaps oil everywhere. g
