Thanks Denis, I noticed something on the Faultless ad, the square decal that is on it, when the contract I have is in the bright sunlight, and in the picture I have of it posted, you can see a faint square out line of something that was there, when feeling better going to take my black light to it in the dark, and see if anything shows up, also that water valve, I found what is left of it in the cyl, kept wondering why a magnet wouldn't pick it up, finally fished it out with a wire when I had the head off,had a wooden plug in it, it is on the bolt under igniter in picture No dates on this ad I guess?..... Updated: I tried the blacklight on this in the dungeon with no windows I have for a shed, you can see where there was a decal ,unreadable though, and it also had striping of some kind, this you cant see unless the blacklight shines on it, it shows up as a darker red, I thought this was weird, I have a ct2 and a Nelson Bro Little Jumbo, that has original stripes on it Gold and gold- red on Stover, the gold does show up as red, want to see some really weird stuff shine a good blacklight on a original painted engine, totally different look , the oil shows up as a off white, and can see every gasket that has been replaced, and marks that you don't see otherwise.... LOL

Denis, I believe the pic of the Faultless engine is from a John Smythe catalog. Not a Kansas City Faultless.

I snagged this picture off of an ebay auction. I wish I would've bought it now...
