Share away.....history is what this is all about.......

The first photo shows a view down into the crankcase/transmission but the oil is WAY down in the bottom and very difficult to photograph.
The second photo shows the output end of the engine oiler which is separate from the transmission oiler.
The third is the transmission oiler and the fourth is not only the governor drive but also the drive for the transmission oiler and magneto.
There are a lot of direction changes so many spiral gears are involved.

Just curious Craig, what is wrong with it? Otto's article says it was in good mechanical shape.

That was also 40+ Years Ago that Lloyd found it & "restored" it (aka Painted it).

Looking at Craig's pictures it is still wearing Lloyds 1970s paint job.

I have no idea where it went in the mid/late 1980s or how long it sat between then and now before showing up in the shop. Judging by how well the paint held up I'd guess it was stored inside at least.

Glad to see the thing again.

Is it getting a Full Restoration this time around straightening out the sheet metal and everything then giving it a proper paint job,
or is it just getting a thorough check-up and left cosmetically As-Is ???

Nope, not a Gibson. I'm not sure what that little feller is.

That would make more sense. The very same thing could happen to our toys to day. We sure don't want to see it happen to any one.

It's not going to be restored.
It's going to have everything that needs checking checked out.
I suspect the pistons will need to be re-grooved for new rings, a valve job, go through the carburetor and whatever else might show up.
Thankfully no shortage of shims has been noticed so I'm very sure any Babbitting is off the table........thankfully......
The owner wants to KNOW what he has rather than being 200 miles from home and finding out.......

Thanks.

Is the Current Owner a member here on SmokStak ?

Would sure be nice to put a bug in his ear about maybe bringing it back to Freeport sometime.

This year would be nice, but Next Year would be even better as it will be our 50th Anniversary Show in 2019.

In the mean time I think I will share this entire Thread on to our Facebook page. Maybe posting a pic or two as a teaser to get people to look at the thread.
(might even get a few more SmokStak members in the process).

Bummer. . .

But we have time to work on him on that.

In the mean time, looking forward to seeing more pictures of it at least.
