Expert:  Greg replied 3 years ago.
Hi .

Could you please send me a photo, as i've been working on theses engines for many years and the 3C-T is as shown.
Maybe i could learn something here, and be able to help you out better.

Kindest regards Greg

Ok so the chassis plate says its a 3c-t but we were given a 3c-te head that fits the motor. the only difference was the vaccuum pump on the rocker over where as the original head didnt have one on top.

Here are a few pictures on the engine that was in the van. Just wondering if maybe the engine in the van is not the original 3c-t or from maybe from a different year or model.
