Can't do it this year. Gonna be busy with a big project at work in April, and we just ran off to the Florida Flywheelers show a couple weeks ago.

But we will try to get down there again in the next few years to check out the TIPS museum.

Thanks for the invite, Bob

Thanks for posting the pics, JR. I sure wish it would warm up enough I could fill all the mains and cylinders with used oil so they could start soaking. If it ever warms up here I will take a few picks of the good and the bad that a quick look yielded. When I took the bolts loose on the intake port cover for #1 about two cups of water ran out. Sure wish this engine had been under a shed the last 30 years or so.

Yeah, that slide out sure makes for more room. When JR gets sent to the dog house for buying another engine he don't have to rough it too much.
It sure is nice to be running down the interstate about 70 and the co pilot goes in the back and makes a pot of coffee.

U got stones for the basket/lost cases.

Too bad steam in the bush is not as common or I would be doing the same.

Wow Patrick, what the heck are you doing in Ecuador? That sure is a long way from home. Have you found any engines down there? Tips had a sales agent down in Mexico and central America back in the twenties.
