Chris, one thing about that boy, all he has to do to find engines is go to grandpa"s barn. He has the advantage not many of us guys have. He is a dandy, gene

Two years later - an update to what the little boy in the picture in post #1 is up to today. We're finally getting some work out of him. He honestly finished polishing these bearing caps himself.

God how great would it be to keep this thread going over the years Chris! I've got photos of myself cleaning down my fathers engines and what not from when i was a kid and have photos of my daughter and nephew handing me spanners beside engines etc. I must print them out to make sure to hold on to them

When the time comes for show and tell at school, he will have the most odd stuff of any kid in the class.
I know for show and tell in about the 3rd grade,I took a 6x9 ring and tooth from a saw to school and explained it. I can still hear the crickets, but I passed that assignment.

What a neat idea for a thread for posterity !! Someday in the future, and only god himself will know how many might be around to see this happen. Wouldn't it be something for the Eppings , Rozenvicks,Babbington,s and many others I cant remember the names of , like the 40hp Fairbanks take apart, to be able to look back on their pictures and comment on them. I hope the Stak will still be around so put those young guys pictures up for posterity! !
