Hey all,

After making a deal last october, I finally got a truck and trailer organized to haul this engine! It was a nightmare to haul, including blown trailer tires, an F550 dying on the road, and lug studs shearing off the trailer axle. After many hours and dollars it came to rest at it's new home at the Zagray Farm Museum in CT. It last ran about 10 years ago and i was told it had a stuck valve. As you can see, the real issue is a broken valve keeper/guide. Not sure how I will go about repairing it yet, but i'm open to suggestions!
