Trip took ~ 6 hours, I didn't want to have to come back because I didn't have something.

My trailer didn't have sides, was a boat trailer with four 2x12 wood rafters for a deck. So had to bring everything to make sure I could guarantee I could secure it. I brought chains, bolts, couple drills, extension cord, crow bars, 2x4 for prying, wood blocks, 2 come-a-longs, even tarp so parts wouldn't get blown off, and more. I even bought new trailer tires so the old cracked up ones wouldn't blow out under the heavy load. Was running out of time so I just brought several buckets of bolts and nuts.

Both trailers were same height, so in the end we just walked JB along a few inches at a time by prying it with a 2x4. Luckily JB was bolted to couple sections of wood 4x4. I just drilled down thru that into my wood deck, bolted it down, and dragged it home.

JB is a bit smaller than I expected. Yet surprises me how heavy it is for it's size.

Porn's coming , will be a little bit. Got to make room in new camera I got, old camera made fuzzy pics.
Looking it over now that's it's in the sunlight. Picking the leaves out of it now to show it in all it's splendor and beauty.

Non-magniciter. Gave a very quick look at the windings, they seem ok. Pat had the end cover off.

Got to finish inspecting my car, and get the inspection sticker that was do last month. Just replaced all brake lines with copper/nickel last week.
