Congratulations Kelly. Are you actually old enough to be a Grampa?

Thank You G!

Here are a few more pictures from the weekend. Charolette Mehmkes 40-80 Avery Minus the cab. It was lost in the building failure.......that will be a later project. Another little Rumely that belonged to Charolette. It hadn't run in a few years and had one piston stuck. The guys went to work on it and freed up the stuck piston and rings....ground the valves and had it running on the weekend. That will be a video later! Tom and Matt had taken the old Polaris snow traveler back to Fargo with them last winter and had it running and rode it to a few shows. They brought it back this weekend and took its twin home with them. Scott and I got the engine back in the Flour City enough to run but I had to leave before it was started. We will finish the canopy and floorboards later. The Case power unit looks like new and is new inside!

The Mehmke Flour City is waiting in the yard as well for some repairs after the roof collapse. The Exhaust manifold will be welded up and be as good as new. Second photo is another of Micheal and Sam Simmons making a lap with the Waterloo Boy. The Matt and the boys pulled the Avery out to fill with water and go for a test run but found a couple water leaks. They were fixing them when I left and I am sure it made some noise Sunday as well. Also not to forget about the new cars! Bud Calloway was busy cleaning carburetors and vacuum tanks on the White and the Dodge Bros. I worked a couple bugs out of the CASE Roadster. But the RAREST sight of all was Montana Slim doing something! Once the Avery, Flour City and Waterloo Boy were out of the shop "Slim" picked up a broom and began to move! And move he did..... at a snails pace....the broom seemed to weighted with Lead!

Here is an update on post #311. The Rider Lewis car is to going to get its turn this winter! I went down today and took the body off. Next is to pressure wash the chassis and remove the engine and see what it needs. Free up the brakes and linkages! We will be on the road soon I hope!

So here is an update on the Rider Lewis. We disassembled the engine to determine why it was stuck. The cylinders are remarkably good. The reason it was stuck is because one of the Rods had been rebabbited at one time and it had deteriorated....swelled...and was dry. The other rods that had the original bearings in them were fine. The head looks fine just dirty. So we will touch up the valves and seats, replace rings, Rebabbit the rod and we will be good to go.

I have included some photos of the engine. the cylinder head is very unique....it is cast all in one with the intake and exhaust manifolds. As well overhead cam and Hemispherical combustion chamber! An early Hemi! (Sparkplugs are off to the side but pretty close!) as you can see from these photos that are a little brighter than my last ones the transmission is mounted to the rear axle. Pin striping is still visible on the axle, springs and frame! Next for the car will be to send it to Sandblasting and Paint!................Just kidding it will stay in its original condition and be drivable!
