	   I would like to verify that the block I have for my BN1 is indeed
an Austin-Healey engine block & not for some other Austin application.
The problem is the engine I.D. plate is missing.  This alone would not
be a concern for me but there is another anomaly. The machined area on
the side of the block where the distributor mounts only has a single
bolt hole for the distributor mounting clamp, not the usual two holes.
My BN1 is early with body #718, engine # 1B139718.    The following
data is cast into the block:                      Westlake Patent     
                NO 593441   5'12'9          1B1699          AF    If
this is a BN1 block, where can I get a single eared distributor
mounting clamp?   FYI, The only other BN1 block I could inspect had
the following cast into the block: 1B2363          Westlake Patent
J665               NO 593441                         1B2363 F2646
