If you Google FoMoCo images you will see a similar font.
Do you have a photo of the whole engine?

Unsure who can see these, who's psychic, and who's a good guesser. But anyway, thanks for all the comments.
Seems like it's a FoMoCo 6 cyl

Looks like Ford Motor Company (FoMoCo).
Any chance of an image of the actual engine?

Balliol!! You again, thanks mate. And someone in another site has suggested the same, and it's a six cyl.
The Tjalk isn't letting in any water either, my temp resin repair has done the trick. Looking to move it out next month, and possibly 1/3 of the hull to be replaced. ๐Ÿ‘

Itโ€™s a four cylinder Ford (4D I suspect) driving through a Borg Warner Velvet Drive gearbox.

Could even be the fabled Infinite Improbability Drive - the ship's not called Heart of Gold, is it ?
