I was just going to say a 76 tnt FAN with the fan missing because I can see the leading edge of the fan enclosure above the carbHiOctane said:It's a tnt 440 '78 body with a 377 engine without the top cowl duct installed.The exhaust pipe is from the original sled.
Vintage,VintageElanGuy said:The engine in the picture above is not a 377 with the fan shroud removed. It is a free air T'NT engine. In 77 and 78 they went to a single Mikuni carb. The metal plate you see is a heat shield to keep any hot air away from the carb.
If it is a 340, the plate on the engine will say type 346.
It's the same as this engine except for the dual carb set up I have on mine. Don't get confused though, my engine is in a different chassis.
The 340 and 440 engine looked exactle the same. Actually, they are the same except for bore size. If it is a 440 then the engine type should be a type 436.
