Matchy topends?

Anyone have some pics of WL bottom ends with Matchy topends? I can't see how they would have aligned the pushrods with the Harley offset tappet arrangement?

I have never heard of this top end. Perhaps they used different lifter blocks and lifters? Got a picture?

I'd love to see some pics too. Those miss matched bottom ends and top ends are cool looking. Plus some pretty good skill went in to making the rascals run.

Pity someone doesn't post an account of all the mods needed and whether it's worth the trouble.

I've seen a couple of incomplete ones hanging around the vintage sprinting scene. They have a reputation for being slow and fragile, although I've never actually seen one running. I would tend to expect the barrel-crankcase joint to be a major weak point, and I would guess that the comments about Magnums also apply to some extent
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...
