Jerred,
Congratulations, very neat engine! What kind of work is it going to need? Looks like it takes 2 operators for sure with the steering wheel that far up away from the controls.
Good luck, Steve

It could not of gone to better folks, The Rubles are first class all the way, Nice to see some other folks land a "big" fish once in awhile, Forrest City is also a Class Act with some of the friendliest folks around ! Bill T

I watched for a couple minutes a guy walked over form the shed to it, then a guy came on a golf cart. then i could see a guy looking under the engine behind the 40, not sure what he was doing, not sure where the golf cart went either

All, I got one of the best phone calls last night...Daniel Wyman, Lee Wyman's grandson who was assisting Nicholas in running his Case while plowing down at LeSueur this past weekend called me last night. He and his grandmother and grandfather had just gotten back from Forrest City after looking at the big 40hp DTC GaarScott. I was impressed that this young fellow thought enough of me to give me a call and tell me what he saw and experienced walking around the girthy ol' gal. Listening to him unfold his details to me sure brightened my day. I had him on speaker phone so that Nicholas could listen in. Thanks Daniel for the call...I believe his dad, Chris, surfs this site from time to time.

We, Nicholas, Eric, and myself are planning a trip down tomorrow. My wife thinks I'm nuts for driving down just to look at an engine, but I told her it is a lot closer to me now then when it was in Montana and I've wanted to see it first hand for many many years now. As Colin pointed out by what he viewed off of their webcam, I'm sure over the course of the next few weeks Forrest City will see a small boom of folks coming just to view the monster engine...and we'll be a part of that boom.

Once again, congradulations Jerred on your latest purchase.

Lawrence

Hi Jerred,
Congratulation on your another toy. I am sure the big girl do bring back the memory. See you some time at show.

Is there any hope in fixing this boiler? or finding a replacement or building new? have heard a few comments but not sure exactly what it needs to fix. a 25hp Broderick boiler would likely fit, couldn't be any tougher to switch than the one we did in SD.
Have fun restoring Jerred, you and a small army better get going yesterday if you want it ready for next years show. quarantte theres a LOT of motor on that to fix/ go through, as well as drive train. know all about it
