Photo Gas Traction Big 4 from Blomgren Estate

We are currently working on the Big 4 chassis that was purchased from the Morris Blomgren estate. The upper and lower crankcases, cylinders,flywheel, and many other parts have been cast and machined. Attached is a picture of my wife and I standing by our purchase and of the engine assembly as it was shown at the Minnesota state fair along with other pictures.

Allen,

That brings a whole new meaning to "WOW". Hate to have to hold one of those fenders on my shoulder to run through the bead roller. Hope your fenders are good. Good luck.

Bob

We have finished the parts for the valve adjusting, so all the valve components are done for the engine.

You might want to get with a moderator (Craig) to see what's going on. We've been posting.
