I don't think that I would say too much about these until you get them home-the sooner the better. Al Wait

Snakes hibernate in strange places,they may already be inside the engines waiting for you to give them a "gentle"wake up call---be careful.I was nearly caught last year by a Dugite,(brown snake), hibernating inside a spare tyre in the shed and I live in town!Keep cranking,Norm

Rex,

What are you going to do with the engine we talked about at Coolspring? The one that I have a part for, but would rather have the engine. a 25 Y is HEAVY!!!! don't hurt yourself.

I see, the base is different than any other Z I've seen. Other that the concrete pad. It is shaped different, where it mounts to the concrete, it looks like it has a symetrical shape, where as the Zs I've owned, the bases where kinda sloppy, round front, round rear. kinda rough casting. I dont know. I'm not a Z guru by any means. but that one kinda strikes me as an unique one.

OK, all I have to do is use Google Earth to look for a red barn with a tree by it and I'll know exactly where the engines are. Yeah, I think I should find them in no time! Like taken candy from a baby.
