Kinda pricey oil field engines that don't do alot for me. They are a side shaft engine. Very heavy built.

Reed, you going to the Catoosa show? If so we will talk about prices then. I know an old boy that deals in Black Bear stuff. What kind of parts did you find?

The last time I was at my friend's shop he had got a lot done to the Black Bear parts he was working on. He had the cracks in the cylinder repaired and rebuilt the valve guide and had it bored and was building tools to grind the valve seat. I should have taken pictures but I didn't. My friend, he's an absolute genius at what he does. The best I know of in the US today period.
