Looks like your are moving right along.Is the cylinder wall pitted very deep? I made a hone for the 10'' bore , I'll post a picture of it later. We always steam clean the water jackets out ,lots of mineral deposits ,rust ,mice nest and nuts. Tap and die every thread, remove rings and wire brush all rust and carbon off piston, polish piston rod so you get a good seal with the packing. Hope your babbit is good on the cross head thats a real pain to pour. Well keep up the good work

Thanks Skidmore,
Hope to Tinker with it a little this Weekend, Gotta Weld up a Farm gate for a Friend or I'd be on it now. I'm really Excited to have the Piston out, and what I See inside does'nt bother Me a bit. I have a pressure washer with 11hp Honda, Hopefully with a Little Simplegreen it will Clean up Good so I can Address the Cylinder.Do You by any chance Know the Landowner with the Flywheels Secured to the Ground by a Tree in case of Hi Winds?

Jim
