Which of These Cam Followers is Not Like the Others?

Helping a friend swap heads on his '63 Land Rover. Cleaning up the block while the head gets overhauled and noticed this. The engine has good oil pressure and no unusual sounds so a new set of followers and he's good to go. Probably looking at a full rebuild in the near future, but the driving season is short here and this toy sees maybe 500 mi/yr so the head goes back on for now. Also, some OE/OEM bits are not readily found and aftermarket parts quality is questionable, so there is the tired engine vs. questionable parts quality, fresh rebuild calculation.

First world problems:)

63 Land Rover with more than one head?
Wound up having the original head rebuilt. In the long run a Turner head would have probably been less expensive but not by much and luckily there is an excellent old school type machine shop locally, who even has experience with these engines.
