Looks like you have the De La Vergne sittin beside the Kline. Those two will look really nice sittin beside each other. Hopefully I'll be able to make your get together this coming year.

Got a little more work done this week, Governor apart and cleaned up, spent about 6 hours on the conecting rod cleaning and trying file the pipe wrinch marks out, being in the oilfield they are rough on things, and the huge name plate cleaned and ready to go on. The rod hooked to the crank ,that went well also.

Here are a few more photos and a small walk around video, I also spent another 6 hours or so on the side shaft (that good old pipe wrench). A lot of the parts have just been stuck on, but on Friday night we started tighten things up in place.. Also got some paint on the rest of the places that where bare cast iron and trying to blend it in with the old it was quit a job... Thanks everyone for looking and thanks to Harry for providing a place to post this...
