I don't know anything about the Lufkin engines but I'm sure I will learn. I picked out a small one. There were about 20 in a line arranged from smallest to largest. The big ones must weigh 20,000 or close. Mine is supposed to be delivered in April at my gas-up. I can hardly wait. Too many projects not enough time.

Dewayne, I don't know much about Lufkin engines either. Just know the Wico mag I have is XHD-2263, CW, 35 degree, horizontal flange mount and suppose to fit a H333 Lufkin but I have no idea what that engine even looks like lol.

Dwayne, luck was on my side, went to an auction Saturday the 16th, our wedding anniversary, came home and showed the wife the engine I got us.

JB sounds like a great anniversary gift. She is lucky to be married to such a thoughtful guy. Start rounding up the south Louisiana gang and bring them over to my gas up on April 27th. When is the show on the water with all the boats and marine engines?

Dwayne it is going to take a pretty big boat to float that Superior, if that is what you are thinking...

Ray, it would take a boat to get to the Superior right now. This has been a very wet winter. I stuck my TD15C the other day and it took a D7 with a winch to get it out. The only way to get to the Superior is around the end of a pond. I have been scratching my head trying to figure out how to extract it.

Well it is the middle of August and it finally dried up enough to try to get the 35hp Superior home. I have to cross the creek that fills a small pond then jack-knife the trailer against the pond to try to line line it up with the engine. I went today and got the engine ready for the winch. All of the bolts and pipes came loose without much difficulty. I hope the winching goes well in the morning. If I am successful I will post more pics when I get home with it.

I was looking in the grass for sharp metal sticking up that will ruin my new tires when I found something I don't know what is. Dug on it a few minutes and figure it must be buried treasure. Anybody have a guess as to what this may be?

Looks to me like you need to walk that whole area with a good metal detector. No telling what you might find. Bring a couple of strong guys along with appropriate digging tools.
