Thanks John an Al

And when I stopped and asked if it was forsale or not. I figured he'd want alot. I was very surprised when he said well whats its worth to you? Said well I have $400 in my pocket. He said deal. Been in the road for years he said. Sell it to somebody who enjoys it. He could not remember what happened to the tractor it was on

Sometimes the planets align, the stars twinkle and Jupiter aligns with the third stage of Aries. Right time and the right place Steve. Great score!

Are the cylinders a stock size or are you going to have to have piston rods made? I'm looking forward to the rebuild.
