Wayne,
It appears my thanks button has disappeared! that tank cooled plug oscillator is rather unusual all that I have seen out here are the hopper cooled. any idea how many were made compared to the hopper cooled? It's a great piece.

As the date says 2001. That was back when ISPs were hammering us to keep the picture size and bandwidth down or they would raise our monthly rates.

Now my server has 1 Terabyte of bandwidth and if I ever get time, I can increase the size of my previous photos.

I'm not sure of how many they made and have only seen one other 3 HP tank cooled Z. I'm sure there are a few more. Of all that tank cooled Z's it seems the ones you see least are the 3,6 and 20 HP models. I'm lucky enough to have all three.

Her's my 6hp tank cooled. Unfortunately the serial number has been defaced. I also own s.n. 340750, a nice original 3hp on a factory cart. Bill

Hello All,
Newbie here, I'm working on one. 1919 sn 368615.

I need a cyl head, and maybe the piece with the contactors.

Dave
