Default Hello from a newb in california

Hello to all;

My 24 year old son got me interested in antique engines and I'm having a ball! My first engine is a Stover CT2 which I picked up at an estate sale for $100. Brought it home and had it running in 1/2 hour (not well, but it was running!).

I have attached a picture of it in the back of the truck when I got home that day.

Since that day, I have posted several questions on this forum regarding how to tune it etc. and it runs great now-thanks to all who responded to my questions.
