The Dayton is at Coolsprings, and is running well. I shot this last Thursday night just to make sure it was going to run.

Well its over, another Coolsprings here and gone. I worked on the Dayton a few times and got some of the bugs worked out, and its running almost like it should. Had a lot of fun meeting a lot of people that had been looking at the restoration as it went on. I got an email that the muffler was done at the foundry last night so the next time its out it will be complete. Thanks for all the nice comments from everyone. It was fun doing this and now for the next one to get started in a few weeks. The Cylinder for the Big White & Middleton should be here in Mid July and that will be fun also. ................DH

Ran the Dayton some Sat. some of the local guys that helped with getting a few things for the project wanted to see it, and it just keeps running better all the time. The rings are getting run in and the compression is getting better all the time. ...............DH
