Default New Guy from Omaha (and other places)

Greetings,
I've always been interested in stationary gas engines, old tractors, steam engines, you name it! I'm sure like many here, I tend to look at these types of machinery as "Industrial Art".

My dad has had a 1.5hp John Deere for years and that's what drew me to my first auction...Arv Miller's place this past weekend. I came looking for a truck for Dad's engine and I ended up buying the 1.75hp Mogul and 2 trucks. The Mogul's beautiful and I know it's something I'll treasure for a VERY long time! I have a lot to learn but I'm very excited about it!

I've been in the Navy for a little over 14 years and love what I do...there've been a few drawbacks, but not many. I'm originally from a small town in Eastern Oregon and love to hunt, fish, camp, and tinker on anything mechanical. I've also been heavily involved in collecting and restoring vintage Coleman lanterns/lamps.

Thank you for having me and I look forward to the future exchanges of knowledge here on the forum!
-Alex

Study up on the Mogul. They are a piece of art. What's your speciality (Rate) in the Navy. I was a Seabee.

Elden/oldproff,
Thank you for the warm welcome, I'm very excited to be here.

Pat,
Thank you as well...I ended up ordering a repro owner's manual so I can provide the proper care and feeding of the Mogul...I'm really looking forward to firing her up. Navy-wise, I'm a Surface Warfare Officer (on shore duty right now) and looking forward to getting back to sea. I screened for command about a year ago, so I'm very excited to get back at it!

Good deal, get the manual and pour over it, like the BJM. When you get back to sea, you might want to take some rusty iron literature with you. Sure helps keep your mind occupied and focused, makes one think. We'll all look forward to hearing from you again.
