That's an old engine - notable for the cast valve cover, lack of oil fill, and carburetor - I can't date it from those features, but I'll bet someone here can.

Russ - I deleted the post - I think the elbow may be installed correctly, although it looks funny to those of us with pipe. It may have a leak internally however.
