a marquis gold 5500 with 60 hours on it....

150 bucks, and about 50 bucks after getting home on carb cleaner and tune up stuff.......2 days later, was starting perfect, purring like a kitten, and making perfect power.....

traded it for a 6500 cck, she ran perfect from the get go (trader was a master mechanic looking for something smaller, quieter, and more portable to power his home shop lift.....

current project.....

a free to me 4000 emerald III......but this one might be a dud, got some more tinkering to do...

I picked up a 3.0AJ-1R from a guy who was tired of messing with it. He said just give me scrap value, $20. Repairing one bad wire in the control box was all it took to get it running. Can't wait to get it set up at my campsite!
