Default 1929 16 ton Insley Shovel with Buda Engine

Posted for Cat951C

I've finally gotten my 1929 Buda RTU 4 cylinder engine ready to go back into my 1929 Insley "C" shovel.

It took four new aluminum pistons and three new valves, a magneto off from a tractor and a new water pump shaft. Total cost = $6000. The radiator cost $1400 to rebuild.

Now I can start on the shovel, tracks and other parts.
