Question Help Id Head

We would appreciate knowing what engine this head belongs to. The bore of the engine is 3 7/8". Note the head bolt pattern is a parallelogram. The exhaust valve is to the top left and the the intake is centered below. Also it appears as though the mixer was bolted on.

The head does not belong to the engine make to which is attached nor does the mixer.

Any help in identifying the head would be appreciated. This is not a quiz!!! Thanks, Helen

George & Helen,
3 7/8" is an odd size - the only engines with that size bore that comes to mind are Alma Jr. & Clippers and small Galloways. Is mixer connection flanged or threaded?

We are only working from pictures, but the mixer connection appears to be flanged. We know what the original engine is, but it so altered!!!! Helen
