The 3/8" return line. From here it is a strait shot to the back and plumb in the tank to the lines... Brooks is just over 2 weeks away!

We wrapped up the plumbing on the fuel system today! Takes time to make all of the black pipe fit together and not leak! The new, smaller carb works great, the engine is running much leaner, no more black smoke!






Now its just down to crossing things off the list!

Big Gurn, I can hardly wait to see this engine. Look forwards to being there at Brooks.

More progress today! We worked out the water pump (works well) and figured out the alignment for the engine to Almond Gearless Right Angle to Water pump. Everything is a go now! We still need to check the water circulation through the engine and tank, but outside of that, we are there!




And the last of the list!


And because video is the best proof of all:


T-7 until we leave for Brooks!

The gearless right angle is almost as fascinating as the engine!

It was an eventful day yesterday! The engine was moved... out of the shop!


We hauled her down to the scales to get a weight...


and she weighed...


SO if you took away the wood base and added in the pulley, muffler, and cooling tank, engine would weight in right at 9000lbs! What a chunk of Iron! Especially when you consider no one part weighs more than 300lbs!

Once weighed, it was time to rig her up and hoist her into the air


Talk about nerve racking!


Safely on the trailer


Ready to roll!


T-1... yikes! We have SO much to GET READY today! See you all at the steam-up!

We are having a great show out here at the Great Oregon steam up! The engine is running great! Today we pulled together the "crew" of guys who made this all possible. From the retrievel (minus one ) to the restoration (see picture).

L to R: Lauren, Kevin, Larry, Manuel, Buzz, & Ryan, missing : Josh (wish you had been here! )






The engine is running great!

Well, the engine ran great all weekend! Just like a fine watch! We we will be running again next weekend, so if you did not make it out to the show grounds to see her run OR if you want some more iron fix for your O.I.D.A. (old-iron disease addiction) we'll see you next Saturday and Sunday!
