History
bought by my FIL to restore original, but he could never get the motor unstuck, so it sat in the pasture until he died... 3 years ago, I pulled it out of the pasture & started pulling it apart in the driveway... couldn't get too motivated working on it in the driveway... last summer built the new shop... it's now in there, at least protected from the weather, waiting for me to find some more time...
