I am sure it will go fine, providing of course Mother Nature stays out of the mix!!!

Given the cold and wind I don't think you have to worry about anyone else picking it up.

Was 0 deg few hours ago, now warmed up ...... 3 degs, but windy.

-7 deg tonight

By the numbers on the data plate is this a natural gas or propane unit?

I'm going to guess but most of the later JB's seemed to come with the multi-fuel carburetors. This one that you listed was built in 1987 and it is spec AD which is the late spec.

I have a half a day to run down to north haven to grab the JB. It has a tri fuel carb. A great muffler. The demand regulator is there. And a electric shut of solenoid. The enclosure has some rust and rot but nothing that can't be fixed. The wiring in the box is all cut except the 2 hot leads they are capped. The starter will not turn. But the engine does. I will have to pull the enclosure off to work on it. Even if it turns out to be just parts I'm happy to get it.

Having an original enclosure is nice for sure. Even if you used the enclosure on another machine if you decided not to mess with this one.

That's the main reason I wanted it. Enclosures for JBs are not very common around here.
