I saw that 4 hp while we were there. Guess I should have said hello. You guys were starting the big engine when we walked up.

Reed, wish you had stopped for a short visit. I know sometimes guys don't like being interupted when they are starting an engine, but visiting is always fun. To me these old engines are just a excuse to gather at shows for fun and fellowship. Hope to see you at Pawnee in the spring.
