I have bought 2 jb's. 1 about a year ago . Another a couple of months ago. Next week this one. I had one I gave to len k. a bit ago. I like them. I can put them on the home depot racks I bought. So they store easily in the building.

In nice shape. I'll pay you the $200 to swap it back with one you gave me.

If I knew the health problems at home were going to turn out like they did I would have kept it. BUT it went to a good home for sure. Thanks for taking care of it.

I'll keep this one.

For $200 it would be worth the 20hr drive and $500 in fuel to travel!

Lol just kidding.

One I have runs and I'll get voltage reg fixed.

Lot of rusted sheetmetal to fix. I could just pop rivet it , but want it to look good. So I'll have friend Mig or Tig it, before I do a Johnny C paint job on it.

I sort of remember that len, it was kinda rough. But complete.

I have the propane one that has mouse pee holes eaten right thru the housing. Little beggers ruin everything.

EnginePat, That spec "AD" is the latest YD end and should have the potted regulator. You also have the big "Critical Quiet" muffler, about a $500.00 muffler. When I redid my JB enclosure, I found some good stiff molded foam rubber to make a seal where the fan housing on the engine and the opening on the cabinet meet. (Last Picture) I then used some 1/4 square galvanized wire mesh fabric to mouse proof the long openings that are at the bottom, inside of the cabinet at the bottom of the doors. No critters at all except a few spiders.
