That would be me. It is going to be a challenge to bore this thing. I have 60" of travel with the bar but only 48" with the column. Theoretically I could bore 108" long feeding both to their limit. You always want to bore feeding the table or column since the bar will sag as it extends. Although in this case using the outboard I might get away with feeding the bar. There will be more time in indicating and setting up the job than machining it. This is the same mill that polished the wheels on the Struthers Wells that was in the expo building at Coolspring.

Muratic acid is what I'm using. I'v been plugging all the water holes and standing the cylinder on end, then I put 5 or 6 gallons in and let it sit out in the sun. The acid will foam and sizzle for 4 or 5 days, when it stops foming, I wash it out and do it all over again untill all the lime is gone. Then I put 2 boxes of baking soda and fill with hot water for 2 days, doing this twice I used about 30 gallons of acid on the cylinder I sent to the machine shop. Used 5 gal. on one of the heads, it would stop foaming in 24 hours. This really cleans it out good, rust and all.....I hope this is what you were looking for.....

WARNING...... IF YOU USE MURATIC ACID. GLOVES, SAFETY GLASSES AND A RESPIRATOR NEED TO BE USED.... this stuff is ..............NASTY....................... DH

I'v been getting a little work done the last 3 weeks, after my trip out west. Most of what I'v been doing is cleaning up parts and repairing, and machining some stuff. I got the one good piston in 2 weeks ago, and that turned in to a 5 hour job. The piston was the easy part, I made this as easy as I could by putting things in as parts. After the piston was in I pulled it back far enough to get the wristpin out part way out, then put the bearings and the yoke that holds them to the rod in, then put the pin back in, Then rigged the rod on to my chainfall to where I could lower or raise which ever end of the rod as I needed, got it up inside the piston and secured the end of the yoke to the rod. ( show more detailed photos of the rod ends when I put the other one together ). John said I did it the hard way. He told I should have put it all together and then put it as one assembly. The crank end was pretty straight forward, The bearings are easy to adjust, having tapered pines that drive together to tighten the bearings, like most steam engines had. The head was put on last week and I gave it 2 more good coats of paint before tighten up the 12 head nuts, thats right 12. I guess they did not want it to fall off..........enjoy..........DH

Went to R/T a few weeks back and got some photos of the other 90Hp Model B that was in the pump house with mine. This is what the engine looks like all together and running..

I'm at a stand still on putting anything else together on mine till I get the other cylinder pack, so I'v been cleaning some of the other parts do the machine work that need done and painting parts..............DH
