Default Maytag 92 first restoration project

I just completed my first Maytag model 92 restoration, (if that's the correct terminology) It was a rust bucket and needed lots of TLC. I'ts MFG date is July of 1929. The only thing I added that was not correct for 1929 was a ball oiler. I think everything else is correct, but I am a new boot and have a lot to learn. I picked up Marvin McCullough's rebuild manual and that was a big help plus all the info on this forum. She runs great, all my neighbors have been by to listen,smell and watch. thanks.

Been there many times, when we go for a motorcycle ride in the hill country we often have lunch at a restaurant on the village square by the court house. I think the restaurant has been closed for a few years now. Nice part of Texas.

Looks nice! The kill switch was originally mounted under the head casting tab.
