I have the correct flywheel, block, and 2 bolt water manifold on the shelf. Along with all new tin, wood. Oh.....I may also have a pto for this girl. Just been visiting with pat detweiller about fronts as these are brazed up. So I will keep these fronts for another project and have another set to re-spoke. I think this should be smooth. Mag going to adrians tomorrow.

Could you post a couple of pictures of the correct flywheel. I am building a half scale D and have found a spoke flywheel to use, I was wanting to see how close it resembled to real one. Thanks for the pictures as this would be a good guide for the rest of my project.

Thanks again

Casemaker yes I will get u pics. Well so much for waiting until thanksgiving. Had my son Jace out helping with the manifold while I worked on the rods. So I am lucky. Froze up at just the right place to access the rod nuts nicely. Wow first for everything.

Early signs of a used but far from abused machine. The manifold unbolted nicely. The governor gear looks great. Many bolt heads are very nice. Just a glimpse into the rear end showed signs of Shiny metal. Rod journals look great. Pleased so far.
